I live in an area that got hit especially hard by the wind storm and we had no power a lot of last night, so just getting back up and going here.
— First today is our story on the situation with Husky Stadium. As the story points out, the financing of it is going to be dicey and for now, sounds like the recommendation will be only to do the first phase (what that entails isn’t certain but that wouldn’t be removing the track). That would be in the $125 million range or so, as the story says. Figuring out how to do the rest will be the real challenge. But as the story says, Todd Turner remains optimstic that it can all be done eventually.
— Also today is our notebook focusing on UW RB Brandon Johnson and his recruitment by Oregon, as well as a note on the bond between UW DE Daniel Te’-Nesheim and Oregon center Max Unger.
Ken Goe at the Oregonian looks at the war of words between UW and Oregon coaches this week.
— The Oregonian also looks at UW QB Jake Locker.
— The Eugene Register-Guard also has this on Locker.
— Here’s a Pac-10 notebook from the Columbian.
— Here’s a story on Oregon left guard Josh Tschirgi and how the Huskies passed on him. Tschirgi is from Skyview High in Vancouver.
PROGRAMMING NOTE: I fear some of you have misintepreted my note yesterday about being stricter on blog comments. This has nothing to do with what people’s opinions are — I welcome all viewpoints, good, bad, indifferent, whatever — about the state of the Huskies. It’s about the manner in which those viewpoints are expressed. There’s simply been too much namecalling and too many sophomoric posts of late. That’s what I want to control. Go ahead and state your piece about the Huskies, their coaching, me, whatever you want. I don’t care what the viewpoint is, it’s how it is expressed I’d like to see done in just a little bit more of a civil manner. That is all.
