Leading off with a sort-of-update on the situation with the Eastern receivers. …
— Since news broke over the weekend that UW might be interested in luring a couple of receivers from Eastern Washington (details here) there has been little news on the matter. And officially, there’s not much new to report, says a spokesman at EWU. The spokesman said the school will have no more comment on the issue and that the two players in question remain on Eastern’s roster. The players in question have yet to say anything one way or the other. UW can’t comment on this until the players would officially enroll at UW (or sign scholarship agreements).
Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News looks at next year’s Pac-10 race and says that while the Huskies should be much improved, he’s still picking them ninth.
— Former Seattle P-I scribe Ted Miller, now rich and famous with ESPN.com, said in a chat today that he also thinks UW will begin improving under Steve Sarkisian and that “there’s not reason UW fans can’t hope to get back to .500 within three years.” As I know Miller knows, I think most are hoping it happens a little more quickly. What do you think — should UW have hopes of reaching .500 before 2011?
Matt Hayes of The Sporting News developed a formula trying to ascertain which programs have done the most with the least talent the last few years and comes up with the shocking conclusion that UW has underachieved (to be fair, this was obviously about a lot more than UW). In fact, UW is essentially second in this system of doing the least with the most. Also doing poorly is Notre Dame, whose coaching staff shared something in common with UW’s during the time in question.
All for now.
