With the Tyrone Willingham issue settled, time to begin looking ahead.
--- Several of you have asked about next season's schedule and whether there is any chance of changing any of the opponents --- UW is scheduled to host BYU, Oklahoma and Notre Dame next season. Official word is that there are no plans at trying to change any of those. It's hard to do this late in the going (changing dates can be done relatively late, but changing opponents is trickier at this stage). Plus, UW already moved the Oklahoma game once, from this season to 2008, replacing the Sooners with Boise State in an effort to lessen the load this season. What is being worked on is changing some of the dates on the current schedule to potentially open with Oregon on Aug. 30 and also maybe move another game to the first Saturday in December (though apparently not the Apple Cup) to create a couple of byes in the schedule.
--- This is a big recruiting weekend for UW with at least seven players due in for visits, including Kavario Middleton, who will reaffirm his commitment. Also coming in is Rainier Beach OL Alameda Ta'amu, who is expected to commit while on his visit and give UW 20 commits for the Class of 2008. Ta'amu took a visit to Hawaii last weekend but apparently spent much of his time at the game trying to talk with UW players and coaches (UW coaches could only say hello due to NCAA rules). Also in this weekend is Kennedy DE Everette Thompson, who could also be close to committing to UW.
--- Also coming in this weekend is Bellevue High C David DeCastro, who confirmed to the Times that he will make a visit. He is committed to Stanford but said he wants to check out UW to make sure.
--- Husky coaches wanted as many of the local players to visit this weekend to create as much of a bonding with those players as possible.
--- UW's annual awards banquet is tonight and we'll try to have the results here as soon as we can. They will also be available on GoHuskies.com this evening.
--- RealDawg.com is reporting that Johri Fogerson has committed to UW. Scout.com has confirmed it as well. We'll have something up as quickly as we can. He will be the 20th commit for UW in this year's class.
