It's a sunny morning with just a few clouds dotting the sky as I type this, looking like perfect weather for the game tonight.
And a clear view for us to finally see the great mystery that is this Washington Husky team. With so much youth and new players, it's really just hard to know for sure how it will all unfold on the field until we see it.
A few links in the meantime:
--- For those looking for a complete view of who has lost what during fall camp, here's a good roundup of the entire Pac-10 from Ted Miller's blog.
--- The Eugene Register-Guard's main story today focuses on Oregon's special teams. That raises the thought that another area cloaked in some mystery for the Huskies are the special teams with new coach Brian White. Here's a story I wrote on White and the special teams during spring ball where he talked about wanting to "create the crowd'' from the first play of the game. We'll see how the Huskies do on that today.
--- The Guard also has this on containing Jake Locker.
--- ESPN presents this preview from Scouts Inc. in its Insider package. This one is a little more detailed than the one linked the other day and in its position-by-position matchups gives UW the edge at QB and Oregon the edge at every other position, including coach. This preview makes the same mistake as the other, however, with awarding UW just two returning starters on the O-line, using that stat as evidence that the Ducks will have a huge edge in both trenches. Don't think I agree with that. Its projected score is 35-17, Oregon.
--- This is NFL cutdown day and a number of former Huskies will be waiting anxiously for the call, one way or the other. Here's a good place to keep up-to-date on the transactions.
All for now.
