A week from today we'll be discussing an actual football game. Until then. ....
--- Maybe the biggest news out there is that Oregon QB Nate Costa was officially listed as "doubtful'' to play against the Huskies, according to the Eugene Register-Guard. More here from the Oregonian.
--- For my main story today, I wrote about Tripper Johnson and his journey from minor league baseball to UW walk-on. It's even more noteworthy now that it appears he has a chance to get on the field this season.
--- Also in our paper today, in the Pacific magazine section, is this in-depth look at the Tuiasosopo family, focusing on the role faith has played along the way.
--- The Arizona Republic has its college football preview today including this column by Paola Boivin saying the conference does non-conference scheduling right. There's also this conference breakdown and a prediction of the Huskies as eighth.
--- Not a great day for any of the four ex-Huskies playing for the Raiders last night as Arizona beat Oakland 24-0. Marques Tuiasosopo didn't play, Louis Rankin had one kickoff return for 22 yards and Greyson Gunheim wasn't credited with any tackles. The best game might have been had by Marcel Reece, who had two catches for 17 yards and also may move up the depth chart due to an injury to another fullback.
--- Reggie Williams returned for Jacksonville and had one catch for seven yards.
--- Unfortunate news for Isaiah Stanback, who suffered a dislocated shoulder in Dallas' game Friday. Unclear yet how long he may be out.
--- The Steelers beat the Vikings 12-10 last night in a rematch of Super Bowl IV, but I don't see the names of Roy Lewis or Jordan Reffett in the stats.
All for now.
