About five hours or so until the first scrimmage of the season. Until then, a little reading material about UW and the Pac-10. …
— In fact, Coach Sark says the scrimmage will start at 3:30, so sounds like that’s when you need to be there to see the action (practice begins a little earlier with the wam-up stuff).
— For all the consternation about the O-line, Steve Sarkisian thinks some guys are playing okay. For the second straight day he named an O-lineman Player of the Day — on Monday it was Ryan Tolar. Sarkisian also notes that the call on the Devin Aguilar catch was overturned. So guess his pleas worked (or maybe those officials wanted to keep getting asked back).
— In case you missed it, I wrote about kicker Erik Folk for today’s paper. As noted in the story, there isn’t really much of a competition at that spot, so the team is going to need Folk to come through.
— ESPN’s Ted Miller has a good piece on Nick Holt and the UW defense today, based on interviews from his time in town yesterday. Miller is now headed south on his tour of some of the Northwest schools.
— The Spokesman-Review’s daily look around the league notes that a few teams are beginning to compile some major injuries.
— Of most note there is that Oregon State has lost WR Darrell Catchings for the season.
— And Jon Wilner notes that Cal RB Jahvid Best has been out for a week.
— Here’s a little bit more on Johnny DuRocher leaving Central.
Bud Withers of our staff starts his week-long previews of the Pac-10 with this story on USC.
— Buster Sports’ Nick Daschel writes that Jake Locker is the player UW could least afford to lose to injury.
Ken Goe of The Oregonian says it doesn’t look for WSU this season.
— The Spokane Shock of af2 won the National Conference Title last weekend and are playing for the ArenaCup this weekend in Las Vegas. That team features former Huskies Johnie Kirton and Caesar Rayford, who each flashed a little UW pride after winning the title last weekend.
All for now.
