Monday links

Hope and concern for the Huskies? And is Ben Ossai one of the five best guards in the Pac-10? That and more in this exciting edition of Monday links. …
Ted Miller’s “Hope and Concern” series touches down today on UW. Miller writes logically enough that the biggest reason for hope is a healthy Jake Locker The No. 1 concern? That dastardly schedule.
Nick Daschel of Buster Sports, meanwhile, puts Ossai No. 5 on his list of the top five guards in the Pac-10 while noting there’s a chance Ossai won’t stay at that position.
.
— CollegeFantasyFootballInsider.com — which will forever be CFFI.com on this page from now on to save my typing fingers — has a quarterback roundtable that includes some discussion of Locker. Specifically, one writer asks if it’s expecting too much to put Locker No. 1 among Pac-10 fantasy QBs.
— Some interesting random thoughts from the LSU vs. UW blog page we referenced last week, including the note that the Huskies have 45 players rated as three-star or higher recruits, and that LSU had to fight hard to the end to get the win the last two times it played a Pac-10 team
Jon Wilner puts Marques Tuiasosopo No. 6 on his list of the top Pac-10 QBs of the decade. I’d probably put Tui No. 4 given that he led the Huskies to a Rose Bowl title, something Nos. 4 and 5 on Wilner’s list didn’t do. I wouldn’t argue with the top three.
Hroniss Grasu, a center UW was recruiting, has committed to Oregon, according to Greg Biggins. He’s the brother of WSU PK Nico Grasu.
— Arizona is at No. 45 in the New York Times Quad countdown. The author predicts seven wins for the Wildcats and a battle with Oregon State for fourth place.
— The Stanford Scout.com site has an interesting look at Pac-10 win totals since 2002.
All for now.
