Tuesday noon links — and a bowl update

A few links and an update on our bowl pool. …
— One of Steve Sarkisian’s first moves at UW was to clean house in the strength department, bringing in two new strength coaches from USC. That meant former Husky strength coach Trent Greener had to find another job. And it didn’t take long as Wyoming has announced he will be the new strength coach there, working for new Cowboys coach Dave Christensen. Greener is a former player at Wyoming, so this is a natural fit for him. And while things may not have ended well for him here, he was a good guy in all my dealings with him, so I wish him well in Laramie.
— Notre Dame offensive coordinator Michael Haywood, who was interviewed for the head coaching job at UW, has been hired as the new head coach at Miami-Ohio. Haywood and UW AD Scott Woodward are close friends, one reason he was interviewed here. This looks like a good place for him to begin his head coaching career.
— USC beat maven Scott Wolf of the L.A. Daily News had some interesting thoughts on how Sarkisian might change as a head coach at UW in a blog entry yesterday. Specifically, he said he thinks Sarkisian may call more deep passes, though overall, he’s not sure the offense will differ much from how USC looked the last few years.
— I see we have just two perfect scores after the first five games of the First Annual UW Blog College Football Bowl Extravaganza (and we’re still looking for a title sponsor). That’s out of 383 entries, so this is already proving a hard-to-predict bowl season, apparently. Sadly, I’m doing as poorly as anyone, getting just one game right so far — South Florida over Memphis (my entry isn’t included in the Bowl Pickem Sea but I did fill one out). Tonight I have Boise State over TCU in what shapes up as one of the best games of the bowl season. And it’s really just a hunch on the Broncos, though I also like the way they finished the season and that they seem to rise to the occasion in big games.
All for now.
