In Syracuse

I have arrived in Syracuse after flying all night — not the smartest travel decision I’ve ever made, but what the heck.
It’s clear and sunny and a little muggy as I write this at 10 a.m., but it’s apparently a little cooler than it has been, which might make it just a little better in the Carrier Dome.
Here’s the story I wrote for today assessing each position grouping on the Huskies by whether it has improved, stayed the same, or regressed since the beginning of camp. Those last few words are the key part, as it’s not an assessment of since last season, but what has happened the last few weeks, as a way to let people know the most current status of the team.
Feel free to disagree.
— Here’s maybe the most interesting thing in the Syracuse paper today, a story on Orange quarterback coach Phil Earley who is the son of Bill Earley, who was a star halfback for the Huskies from 1950-52. I actually put in a call to Phil Earley this week intending to do something on his ties to the area but we never connected. This story, however, details about what you would need to know about him.
— Syracuse is also unveiling a statue honoring Ernie Davis this weekend.
— To answer a question on whether the Huskies should switch Cody Ellis to cornerback to make up for the depth problem there, I just don’t see it happening. UW coach Tyrone Willingham said this week he didn’t think there were any position moves that would make sense that wouldn’t also weaken the team somewhere else. Ellis could probably do it, but he hasn’t played CB since 2004, and switching him just as his senior season begins would be a lot to ask as he seems to have finally found a home at receiver.
— Glad to see a few of you actually want to see my weekly Pac-10 picks, something I think could be a fun segment of the blog if we all chip in. I need just a little more time to get them all done, but since Oregon State plays Utah tonight, I want to get that one out there, so here it is — Oregon State 24, Utah 14. OSU is simply better than Utah, but I do think the Beavers could struggle a little bit on offense while breaking in two new QBs and a receiver corps that will apparently remain without Sammie Stroughter (here’s the latest on his situation). But the Beavers still have a veteran O-line and Yvenson Bernard, and should eventually wear down the Utes
