Saturday night links

We’re back from this couple-day exile — there will be a couple more — with some links that piled up in our absence. …
— As some of you noted in the comments section, UW commit Tevin Carter won the 200-meters at the LA City Section track meet this week. And that performance tabbed him as one of the sprinters to watch at the state meet next week, according to the LA Times.
— CollegeFootballNews.com released its season preview of the Huskies, writing that a 4-8 season would be a success. What do you think? Is that good enough to make it a success? One other thing that caught my eye was the assertion that UW coaches might rather have Jake Locker run more like Mark Brunell instead of Marques Tuiasosopo. Interesting to note, then, that in what you would call the signature season for each player — Brunell in 1990 and Tui in 2000 — that Brunell actually rushed for more yards than Tuiasosopo, 472 to 469. (Tui also rushed for 571 in 1999). Point being, I think Brunell might have been more of a runner than people remember — his knee injury before the 1991 season obviously put a crimp on all of his numbers from that point and on his career stats. The CFN preview also has an interesting list of the top 10 Huskies for this season (which reminds me that I need to update the top 10 list we ran prior to the spring. Watch for that soon).
— CollegeFantasyFootballInsider.com has a mock draft for the Pac-10. Which right off the bat leads me to ask one question — are there a lot of you out there who play college fantasy football? Judging by the increasing amount of material on this I’m seeing on the web, someone thinks it’s a growing market. Anyway, interesting to see Locker as the sixth overall pick with Chris Polk and D’Andre Goodwin the only other Huskies selected.
— And the Associated Press has this on the pending retirement of Pac-10 commissioner Tom Hansen.
All for now.
