Tuesday night links and notes

Posted by Bob Condotta

A few notes and quotes to pass along on a gloomy Seattle night that never felt more like football season arriving:

--- For those who have asked who the announcers are for Saturday night, here you go: Barry Tompkins on play-by-play, Petros Papadakis on, uh, analysis, and Bill MacDonald on the sidelines. I'd go with mute and Rondeau and Nelson, unless the latter is named UW AD by then.

--- predicts the Huskies to make it to the Hawaii Bowl and play the host Warriors (hey, us beat writers could ask for a lot worse). Obviously, that would give UW a chance to avenge one of its most bitter defeats, the regular-season finale last year. Somebody posted this earlier and asked what I thought. Why not? I haven't made any real won-loss picks for the season, but there's no reason to think UW can't win enough games to get to the Hawaii Bowl, which has the No. 6 pick from the Pac-10. But the potential stumbling block for UW in that regard is the non-conference schedule, which simply doesn't afford any easy wins.

--- Rob Moseley of the Eugene Register-Guard has this short item on the Oregon player who is spending the week emulating Jake Locker.

--- The Ducks suspended a backup WR for the Husky game today for violating team rules.

--- The Oregonian has this feature on Jake Locker, the first of many you're likely to see this week.

--- The Oregonian also has these capsules of Pac-10 teams as well as a prediction of the Huskies to finish ninth.

--- In case you missed this earlier, Rick Neuheisel is making a lot of promises in Los Angeles.

--- UW practiced tonight at 7:30 and I didn't make it, so I don't have anything to report from that, though my understanding is everybody was fully accounted for.

All for now.
