Have actually been out of town for a few days so doing what I can to keep the blog going a bit.
Here are a couple of interesting links I found in the meantime:
--- First, here's a good story on WR Kasen Williams of Skyline, the sophomore-to-be who was offered a scholarship by the Huskies last year. Tyrone Willingham drew some national attention to that when he mentioned at a convention in Dallas earlier this year that he had made his first-ever offer to a freshman. The story also indicates Williams has offers from UCLA and Boise State. He is the son of former UW receiver Aaron Williams, who played in the early '80s.
--- Count ESPN's Bruce Feldman as another who thinks UW has the toughest schedule in the country this season. Here's his reasoning. He concludes by writing that "when Notre Dame is your easiest game, and as I've written before I think the Irish will be improved in 2008, that's saying something.'' He also writes that he expects all three of UW's non-conference foes --- BYU, Oklahoma and Notre Dame --- to be ranked. Feldman also lists UCLA (3), USC (5) and Oregon State (6) among his top 10 most difficult schedules this season.
--- Feldman also included a link to this story from the Deseret News in Salt Lake City on the high number of prospects in Utah this season, some of whom are being recruited by the Huskies.
--- Rivals.com has these updated, and still way early, rankings on the recruiting classes of 2009. As many of you have pointed out with some frustration, UW is impossible to rank at the moment since they don't have any commits. Ohio State, with 23 commits, leads the rankings with 23 commits while USC, which has 14, is next. Other Pac-10 teams ranked are UCLA (22nd with seven commits) and Stanford (24th with seven commits).
--- The Bleacher Report has this continuing series making the case that the Pac-10 is better than the SEC.
All for now.
