Here's your collection of Husky links and related items of interest around the interwebs:

Football Dots:

  • Fresh off the lively debate here regarding projections of how Vegas will set the over/under of wins for Washington football in 2015 comes news that 5Dimes offshore casino has set their early lines, and some Husky fans won't be happy to see the line for the Dawgs.  Christian Caple offers this important observation:

  • USA Today released their annual list of college football finances, and it was good news for our feathered "friends" down in Eugene as a one-time $95M donation by Phil Knight towards improved football training facilities boosted the Ducks to the top spot in revenue for the 2013/14 school year.  Washington was 2nd in the conference in revenue, and if you take away that gift by Knight, the Huskies essentially matched Oregon in revenue (and with significantly less in expenses).
  • As part of this report on college football finances, USA Today notes that the Pac-12 led the way in the 2013/14 school year in revenue, and commissioner Larry Scott was the highest paid among his peers.  The Pac-12 won't enjoy this lead for long, as new TV deals in place for the SEC and Big Ten will again push them to the top of the heap.
  • Over at Pacific Takes recruiting editor Jamie Uyeyama has this post talking about how Cal's Sonny Dykes and our Chris Petersen value film over measurables when it comes to recruiting (using the recent commitment of RB Sean McGrew as an example).
  • Jamie also has this look back at QB recruiting in the conference and concludes that USC & Washington have had the most success over the last five years in signing blue-chippers.
  • With "Organized Team Activities" (aka OTA) underway in New Orleans for the Saints, the Times-Picayune has this interview profiling Hau'oli Kikaha
  • David Lombardi at ESPN lists the Apple Cup as one of the Pac-12 games he's most looking forward to seeing, but it's not exactly for reasons that would make Husky fans excited.
  • Over at Dawgman.com, editor Chris Fetters has a sobering profile of Darin Harris and how he's been dealing with TBI (traumatic brain injury) as a result of the injury that ended his Husky career vs. BYU back in 2008.
  • The NCAA released APR data today, and it was good news for Washington. Here's a snapshot from Jon Wilner and Christian Caple via the Twitters:
