Here are a few items of interest today:
--- First, I've heard from several places that current Kansas defensive coordinator Bill Young may be a candidate for the same position at UW. I have not been able to confirm this through any official channels, so I'm passing it along here merely as a rumor. As you can see in his bio, he has some significant Pac-10 experience, having worked at USC under Paul Hackett and at Arizona State under John Cooper. As for why he'd leave Kansas, maybe money. He reportedly made $220,000 last year, or about what Kent Baer made. UW was reportedly offering DeWayne Walker at least $400,000.
--- And some might wonder if Carroll would be suddenly interested because of a new book coming out about Reggie Bush called "Tarnished Heisman'' that is promising to unveil all kinds of new allegations about that incident. Here's a review of the book from LA Times blogger Adam Rose who concludes that "it doesn't look good.''
--- Here's the Oregonian's Oregon State blog with the news that the Beavers are recruiting Greg Oden's brother as a tight end. Obviously this makes some sense with Greg now just up I-5 in Portland.
