Still working out the kinks

Many of you have mentioned trying to comment and not being able to.
I was told there would be a few kinks to work out early on with our new format and this is apparently one of them. I’ll try to let you know when I’m told it is fixed for good.
Anyway, I wrote today about UW’s recruiting class, a story that also includes a chart with the ranking of every UW class since 2002 — several of you had asked to see how this class compares to some of the recent ones in terms of perception, so hope that helps.
As for the rankings themselves, already gotten some e-mails about reading too much into them. I agree that too much can be made of them, but they are also just about all we have in terms of trying to judge these things ahead of time. Obviously, the ultimate proof is what happens five years down the road. The Class of 2002 is a great example — it was a top 20 class nationally that for a variety of reasons only had one player who ever played in one bowl game (Nate Robinson as a true frosh in 2002 when every other player was redshirting).
Speaking of the Class of 2002, the man who brought it here — Rick Neuheisel — will be back in town this weekend with the Baltimore Ravens. Danny O’Neil of our staff wrote about Neuheisel’s return today.
Speaking of Neuheisel, here’s the latest on the UCLA situation from the LA Daily News including some news on Bruins’ defensive coordinator DeWayne Walker, who could be a candidate for the same spot at UW. However, Walker figures to have a few jobs to choose from once this season ends.
