We had several stories involving this week’s game today:
— First is kind of a combo package on the two QBs in the game Saturday, with Jerry Brewer looking at how Jake Locker is handling the suddenly rough start to his college career, and a story I wrote on Oregon’s Dennis Dixon, including the note that he took a recruiting visit to UW for what would have been the class of 2003 before deciding on the Ducks.
— Also today is our notebook focusing on whether UW is trying to do too much on offense, as some suggest. UW coaches say the game plan is just fine.
— Finally from us is this story on the game at Qwest Field Saturday between Central and Western, focusing on the five former Huskies now playing for CWU.
— Here’s a look at the game from the Oregon student newspaper.
— Here’s another look at the game from the Oregonian blog, repeating what seems to be the theme of the week down there — that the Oregon players don’t seem to get what all the fuss is about concerning this game. I really don’t know if that’s good or bad for UW as I know one of the themes for Oregon all season is to keep an even keel after how up-and-down the Ducks were last year. Could just be the players’ following the orders of their coaches to treat every game the same.
— Here’s a breakdown by the Oregonian of the 10 freshmen who are seeing significant playing time for the Ducks this season.
Jon Wilner looks at which coaches around the nation are on the hot seat.
— Wilner also has a best-and-worst of the first half of the Pac-10 season that basically doesn’t mention Washington at all, but is still an interesting read.
