Back from a day away to find lots of interesting reading out there, so I'll pass some along:
--- No official word yet on Oregon QB Nate Costa, according to the Oregonian, but coach Mike Bellotti reported that the swelling wasn't as bad as it could have been, hinting at the possibility of good news. The link also includes a report on Oregon's final scrimmage today.
--- Here's more on Oregon's scrimmage today from the Eugene Register-Guard, which reports that it was dominated by JC transfer RB LeGarrette Blount. if Costa is really out for the UW game, Oregon's running attack, led by Blount and Jeremiah Johnson, figures to become an even bigger factor.
--- The Oregonian also has this interesting look at ticket prices for all BCS college teams. If I'm reading it correctly, it seems to report that Washington has the second-lowest prices in the Pac-10. But according to this list of prices from GoHuskies.com, I'm not sure the Oregonian got it right. (Maybe they got UW and WSU mixed up). Whatever the case, a worthy effort.
--- Sporting News released its pre-season All-Pac-10 team which doesn't include any Huskies.
--- ESPN's Ted Miller highlights "one big issue'' for each Pac-10 team, and zones in on the defense for UW.
--- Rob Moseley of the Register-Guard comes up with an interesting way to predict the season, basing it on how many times out of 10 he thinks the Ducks would beat a given opponent. He figures Oregon would beat UW seven out of 10 times.
--- The New York Times picks BYU, UW's second opponent, No. 10 in the nation and says the Cougars will run the table this season.
All for now.
