Wednesday random notes

As the title says. …
— For those who have asked, here is a link to info on the Raise The Woof football kickoff celebration that is taking the place of the old kickoff luncheon.
— One person who won’t be there is Tyrone Willingham. And in one of the most shocking things I’ve ever read, it sounds instead like he might be on a golf course at that time, according to this story in the Stanford Cardinal Football Examiner, which reports that the former Husky coach has been spending a lot of time on the links since his firing. The story quotes former Stanford center Mike McLaughlin saying that Willingham is growing to like not working and may not return to coaching anytime soon. He also makes what seems to me a rather dubious assertion about Willingham experiencing “harassment” during his time at UW. Seemed to me everybody was a lot more civil at the end then they are at a lot of other places going through similar seasons, while Willingham spent his final days implying to reporters from out of the area that UW was a “downtrodden” program and that he’d never had a chance at success here.
— By the way, if you’re like me and live in the greater Seattle area and get Comcast, ESPNU showed up on the dial as Channel 400 today. That’s the channel that will carry the Skyline-Oaks Christian game Sept. 18 and previously was not part of the Comcast tier. You can also get ticket info here.
UPDATE — I’m informed that ESPNU’s addition is being staggered and that nont all areas of Seattle will get it at the same time.
All for now.
