The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

Thursday links — Montana, Denbrock and more

More links on Nick Montana , former UW O-line coach Mike Denbrock getting a job, and the UW season-to-be. …
— SI.com has a fun piece today on the QB camp held over the weekend in Hawaii that was attended by Montana. Sounds like a lot of playful trash talking as well as a chance for the young QBs to hear from some of the greats of the business.
Mike Denbrock, the UW offensive line coach the last four years under Tyrone Willingham, has been officially hired at Indiana State. This had been rumored for a while but the school finally announced it this week. He was the last of the full-time assistants from last year to officially be hired elsewhere, with each of the other eight already landing jobs. The only full-time coach from last season yet to be hired anywhere (or anywhere that we know, anyway) is Willingham. As the linked story notes, the head coach at Indiana State is another former UW assistant Trent Miles.
— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller, meanwhile, spotlights UW in his latest “Don’t Be Surprised If. …” segment. Miller writes that there are lots of reasons for optimism on Montlake, including the return of 18 starters and a healthy Jake Locker. Miller, however, also says that he agrees with a certain Seattle Times beat writer that the over-under on UW wins this year should be set at four (which means if Ted and I are starting to agree on things it may be time for me to change my ways a bit).
— Speaking of over-unders, Jon Wilner spent a night in Elko recently (which sounds like the opening to a country song) and got some of the latest futures odds on college football. UW is listed at 70-1 to win the Pac-10 this year. If you’re anything like me first, sorry; second, you’ve probably thrown money after causes more lost than that, so if you’re in Elko, might be worth a buck or two. Unfortunately, Wilner said there was no over-under on wins for UW. I would bet it would be at least 4.5. Remember, those aren’t set so much because it’s what the oddsmakers necessarily believe is going to happen but to maximize their profit. They need to try to get equal money on both sides. An over-under of 4.5, to me, seems like the most likely way to get even betting.
All for now.
