A few items to pass along before hypothermia sets in:
—- ESPN’s Ted Miller riffs on the season that wasn’t for the Huskies in his post-season review of UW. Turning points are always debatable, and those of us closer to the team might see them differently. I thought the second half against Oregon was when things first started to fall apart, and the penalty against Jake Locker against BYU when it really all tipped in the negative. The Stanford game, though, as Miller points out, was when all hope was truly lost. The last eight games were just playing out the string.
— Rivals.com named its All-Pac-10 Freshmen team and included three Huskies — Ronnie Fouch, Quinton Richardson and Jermaine Kearse. No offense to Fouch, but his naming proves mostly that there weren’t any other freshman QBs who did anything in the conference this year as the reality is that UW went 0-8 in his starts and threw nine interceptions and no TDs in his last five. But the oddest pick of all is Oregon QB Chris Harper as a WR. He did catch nine passes this year used in a lot of trick-play type roles, but hard to call him a receiver, I’d think. Harper, by the way, is rumored potentially transferring to Kansas State.
— Scout.com is reporting this afternoon that the new UW coaching staff has contacted Nathan Fellner and that the Clovis West safety is feeling better about Washington but is also still considering Arizona and Colorado. Story quotes him as saying he’s more than 50 percent sure he’s headed to UW but will wait a while to make anything completely official.
— Finally, a last reminder to join the bowl pool before games begin tomorrow morning. We’re up to 286 entries and I do have a prize in mind for the winner assuming I don’t need to use it as a Christmas gift. I’ll also start doling out my picks tomorrow, which won’t be in time for you to win the pool by simply picking against me, which would probably be the best strategy of all.
All for now.
