And we don't mean sausage. ....
--- Mike Huguenin of Rivals.com has this fun look at what the coaches involved in some of the more intriguing college football matchups this season might say to each other before the game. Two involve UW's Tyrone Willingham.
--- ESPN.com's tireless Ted Miller has this ranking of the Pac-10's tight ends, slotting UW at eighth while noting the addition of Kavario Middleton could change things. Reading through the list reinforces the idea that tight end is a pretty good position in the conference this year.
--- Thanks to Miller for also finding this note on former Husky Joe Lobendan, now with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
--- There's an interesting note buried in this blog post that the Dallas Cowboys "flirted'' with signing Marques Tuiasosopo before Tui decided to sign with the Raiders, instead, thinking he had a better chance at earning a more prominent role in Oakland.
--- Here's a really nice story on former Husky Dashon Goldson from the 49ers' official web site. Camps are just around the corner and sounds as if Goldson has a real chance at a starting job this year. Obviously, playing for the 49ers means a return to Seattle every year. This year's comes on Sept. 14.
--- UCLA suspended starting strong safety Bret Lockett for the first game for violating team academic rules. Is this evidence Rick Neuheisel is wielding a sharper disciplinary sword than he did at UW?
All for now.
