A few good things out there today for UW fans. …
— Buster Sports has this interview with ESPN recruiting guru Tom Luginbill, featuring lots of discussion of the recruiting efforts to date of UW. He says UW has made “huge strides” in recruiting and will have a top 3-5 class in the conference when it’s all said and done. He also says Nick Montana is a “late bloomer” with his “best football” ahead of him.
— Rivals.com, meanwhile, chips in with a rather lengthy story on UW and Steve Sarkisian’s efforts to rebuild the program. Included are a couple of anonymous quotes from a former UW assistant saying that the team didn’t have the talent to contend and that the school is overly ambitious with its schedule —- two well-worn topics locally, obviously, but this is a story written for a national audience. The assistant is quoted as saying “go back and look at the recent NFL Drafts. That will tell you all you need to know.” Author Tom Dienhart also notes that UW’s record since Don James retired is now 95-94-1. (And you wonder in retrospect how much that 1 at the end might have changed things as it cost UW a chance to play in the 1996 Rose Bowl).
— ASU reconfigured its 2010 schedule a little yesterday meaning it will now play Oregon and Oregon State in the two weeks before hosting UW.
— ESPN’s Ted Miller has an good interview with UCLA offensive coordinator Norm Chow that includes some info on how the Bruins were able to lure QB Kevin Prince away from the Huskies.
All for now.
