LOI-night links

One last post before turning off the light on LOI Day 2009. …
— Times columnist Jerry Brewer says Steve Sarkisian and the Huskies did the best they could given the circumstances.
— For our notebook, I let Sarkisian explain his view of what happened with the violations. For those who will accuse me of piling on, it was the first time we’d had a chance to ask Sarkisian about it and I felt it was worth one inside-page notebook to let him explain it in his words.
— I took my own shot at giving a brief overview of the recruiting wars in the Pac-10.
— Here’s a good story with video of James Johnson explaining why he chose UW. Essentially, he says he wanted to play WR and other schools wanted him as a DB.
— Here’s another story on Johnson.
— Interesting note from the San Francisco Chronicle that longtime NFL WR James Lofton may be a candidate for the WR job with the Huskies. Sarkisian said he hopes to fill it next week. Lofton is out of work, having recently been fired by the Raiders.
— ESPN’s Greg Biggins has some good stuff on the rest of the Pac-10.
— Here’s a story on Myles Wade’s decision to go to Texas Tech.
— The final rating tonight for Scout.com has UW last in the Pac-10 and No. 66 in the nation. Rivals.com has UW ninth in the Pac-10 and No. 68 in the nation.
ALSO. … Many of you sent me questions today. Given the nature of the day, I concentrated on the LOI news and the press conference. But I have all of your questions and will try to get to them in the next few days — we’ll need something to keep the blog going, anyway, now that there may be a little lull in real news for a while. So keep checking, and if you think I missed your question, please send it again. Thanks.
All for now.
