The IT'S FINALLY GAME DAY edition:
--- First, here's my preview story on today's game, focusing on the rebuilt UW defense. Of all the intrigue in today's game, finally seeing what the UW defense under new DC Ed Donatell has to offer may be at the top. And here's the preview box featuring a few nuts and bolts items about the game.
--- The big story in Eugene is the suspension of Oregon left tackle Fenuki Tupou. Here's the report from the Register Guard; and from the Oregonian. Rumblings in Eugene are that the Ducks may have known about this for a little while and may have prepared knowing this might happen, possibly mitigating the impact of this a little bit. Still, this could lessen what figured to be one of Oregon's biggest advantages in this game, its veteran O-line against UW's young defensive line. Tupou started 12 of 13 games last season for the Ducks.
---- Ken Woody produces his offensive keys to the game for the Ducks.
--- Marques Tuiasosopo threw a 25-yard TD pass to Marcel Reece at Qwest Field Friday night but the Seahawks won 23-16.
--- NFL teams begin cutting today but sounds as if Roy Lewis has a chance to make it with the Steelers.
--- Dan Howell's chances of making the Bengals haven't been helped by a foot injury.
--- J.R. Hasty and Jordan Murchison have earned starting jobs at Central Washington, where former ASU OL Eugene Germany is also now playing.
All for now.
