The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

Wednesday links, notes

We had three Husky-related stories in the paper today:
— a feature on UW’s long drought against UCLA in Pasadena. As the story notes, UW hasn’t won at UCLA since 1995, it’s longest drought at any Pac-10 venue (other than beating Purdue there to win the 2001 Rose Bowl, obviously);
— a notebook focusing on UCLA’s attempts to turn itself around quickly;
— and Bud Withers’ column investigating who is really to blame for what’s gone wrong at Notre DameCharlie Weis or Tyrone Willingham.
— There’s also this column from the Indianapolis Star saying Notre Dame owes Willingham an apology.
— Lots of interesting stuff in the LA Daily News report today, including the news that Patrick Cowan may start at quarterback if Ben Olson can’t play due to headaches. Cowan. the son of former Husky Tim Cowan, took most of the snaps at QB for the Bruins in practice Tuesday. The story also says DT Brian Price may play up to 25 snaps against the Huskies and that WR Marcus Everett has a sore ankle but is expected to play.
— Here’s the LA Times on the same topics. I think we’ll know a lot more about Olson’s status after today.
— How big is this week’s game for UCLA coach Karl Dorrell? LA Times columnist T.J.Simers writes that he may need a win to save his job.
— For those who asked about Craig Chambers, here’s a recent story from the Missoulian detailing his shoulder injury. Rumor is he suffered the injury during a skirmish during a practice in the spring.
NOTES
— Also, continue to get questions about the status of WRs Devin Aguilar and Anthony Boyles. All there really is to report is that they each re-took the ACT on Saturday and are now waiting for results. Sounds as if it will be a week or two before it is known if they will get in. Conventional wisdom all along has been that Aguilar had a much better chance than Boyles of getting qualified. If they do get in, I wouldn’t expect them to play this season since it would already be four games in now, at least, plus they’d need to go through the five-day acclimatization period and all of that. They would redshirt and get ready for next year.
