So after hitting the links at UW's annual golf outing with media and coaches today , I went searching for some different kind of links.
Here's what I found:
--- Looks like the on-line bookmakers have less faith in the Huskies against Oregon than does Las Vegas. As reported here earlier, UW is opening as a 10-and-a-half-point underdog in the opening lines in Vegas. However, these opening lines from three different on-line sports books have the Huskies as 14-point underdogs.
--- ESPN's Ted Miller ranks Pac-10 safeties and places Mesphin Forrester No. 8 while noting that he was moved to cornerback late in the spring. Forrester, in fact, is now officially listed as a CB on UW's official roster and in the media guide. UW's safeties entering fall camp will be Jason Wells and Nate Williams at free safety (Wells is apparently healthy and ready to go after the knee injury suffered against USC) and Darin Harris and Victor Aiyewa at strong safety.
--- Miller also answers his mail with a lead item projecting the Pac-10's bowl participants for this season. He leaves out UW, saying that the Huskies may have "scheduled themselves out'' of a bowl game.
--- The latest recruiting news and notes from New Era Scouting have a couple of Husky references, including the assertion that UW fans shouldn't panic because the Huskies have only one commitment. Interestingly, however, the other school the author notes as having only one commitment is Syracuse, which like UW, has coach that is considered on one of the hottest seats in the country, likely a main reason the Orange are struggling to reel in the early commits. Seems hard to ignore that factor.
--- Oregon linebacker Kevin Garrett, a possible starter on the weakside for the Ducks this season, has been suspended following a DUI arrest over the weekend.
--- Yet another vote for Oregon's uniforms as being among the ugliest in college football (and I don't even think the author is a Husky fan).
All for now.
