Why do people get all riled up when I show them mine? I mean, c'mon people, they are dots! Beautiful, glorious, cherished dots. I'm getting dizzy just thinking about them.
- The USA Today put out a poll today <yay!>. Newsflash: USC is not #1, and UW is not #25 (almost). Have I mentioned that I am opposed to preseason polls?
- Interesting factoid on the #1 team in the said poll comes from Bruce Feldman's Twitter

- Wanna know more about what is on Sark's mind? Check out his KJR interview below:
- Speaking of Miller, here is his update on recruiting in the PAC 12 (this came out before the Harlow committment)
- While on the topic of recruiting, it looks like that some Trojan is going to have to give up his scholarship to accommodate Silas Redd. Like JB always says, nobody likes to see how the sausage is made.

Jake Locker is splitting reps with Matt Hasselbeck in Titans Camp. As I live in Tennessee now, I can report that there is a lot more buzz than I would have expected about Locker starting out #1 this season.
- Expect to see a lot of articles like this on Mason Foster as the NFL season nears. He's a stud.

- Here is an update on the Pac 12 Medal Count from Pacific Takes.
- The Men's BBall schedules are starting to come together. Here is a the latest from GoHuskies.com. Note our PAC 12 opener. The imbalanced scheduling also means that we only get one each with both Cal and Colorado this season - a nice break. It should be fun.
- The Husky Haul asks: Who is on your UW Dream Team? The author of this article is a little young, so you'll have to forgive him for his recent-era focus. For me, I'm going with IT, BRoy, Detlef, James Edwards and Houbregs coached by Marv.
- Brandon Roy was introduced to the Minneapolis media and discussed how his career was "put on pause".
- Nate Robinson is looking bullish.
