Back to it after the Holidays. Hope yours went as well as ours. …
— Here’s my story today recapping the Grant Cisneros situation that was discussed on here two days ago, as well.
— Rivals.com has this look at the recruiting reputations of some of the more high-profile new coaches, including Steve Sarkisian.
— ESPN’s Ted Miller says the Huskies should go after Boise State’s Justin Wilcox as defensive coordinator. I haven’t heard anything specifically linking Wilcox to the job but we’ll see. Miller also suggests OSU’s Mark Banker, who turned down a chance to interview for the job last season.
— Speaking of the DC job, Scott Wolf of the LA Daily News says in this chat session that Sarkisian is no longer talking with Trojan DC Nick Holt about it and that it’s unclear where the search is headed now (those comments are buried pretty deep in the chat but are in there).
— Wolf also has this on how Sarkisian will handle calling his last game for the Trojans with an interesting quote from Sarkisian that “I’m not that sentimental. I’m business oriented.”
— UCLA DC DeWayne Walker is a finalist for the head coaching job at New Mexico State, and that could also create another high-profile DC job opening in the Pac-10 that could impact UW’s search.
— The economy is impacting bowl ticket sales for Oregon and Oregon State, according to the Oregonian.
— And finally, in our First Annual UW Football Blog Bowl Extravaganza, we have just one undefeated entry left. Nine others are 6-1. My picks, meanwhile, are as abysmal as the driving conditions in Seattle as I’m 1-6. I have Central Michigan today, meaning Florida Atlantic is due to win by about 30 or so. I really have no idea why I picked Central Michigan — I won’t pretend to have much knowledge of either of these two teams other than the fact that FAU’s resume has to be the least impressive of any team in the post-season. So hey, go Chippewas.
All for now.
