Noontime notes

Here are a few notes and links for your Tuesday lunchtime reading:
— The Pac-10 coaches conference call just completed and UW coach Tyrone Willingham really didn’t say anything of note.
— Two items of interest, however, from WSU coach Paul Wulff — he said Kevin Lopina, who had a concussion last week, should be ready to go. He also said Dwight Tardy and Logwone Mitz, the latter out last week with an injury, will be the top two tailbacks for the game.
— The Sporting News asked some noted former players of schools with coaching openings who they would like to see as their new coach. Here’s the link to the entire story. And here’s the excerpt of what Lawyer Milloy had to say, ultimately saying he would like Gary Pinkel to be the coach:

“The person I want is Jim Mora, but I don’t know if that’s within reason. He’s pretty much under contract. People say that all the time nowadays. I just think the irony is that it’s kind of crazy for the setup as far as him being out there right now and everything that’s transpired. He said it on the radio, jokingly on the radio, but the chips are all kind of fallen in place for him to accept it or not. I like (Gary) Pinkel out of Missouri. I think his contract is up. I’ve heard his name thrown around. I really like what he’s done with Missouri’s program. He was a guy that was there when we were going through our most successful years under Don James. He’s a guy that I met personally. You can just tell that he bled purple and gold at the time.”

— At least one guy says UW can have Jeff Tedford if it wants him.
Dennis Dodd breaks down Tennessee’s coaching situation with some names familiar to that of UW’s search.
All for now.
