Husky Football Blog

The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

September 5, 2009 at 10:11 AM

Saturday morning odds and ends

If Steve Sarkisian proves to be as good a football coach as he is prophetic about the weather, the Huskies may really have something.
A few weeks ago, on one of the really nice summer nights we were having in August, a reporter mused to Sarkisian it would be cool to have that setting for the LSU game. Sarkisian shook his head and said no, he’d rather it be a little stormy and rainy, what I think he said he’d heard was “Husky weather.”
He’s gotten his wish as it’s been raining buckets much of the morning here and the forecast doesn’t indicate a change anytime soon.
So lots of time to stay inside, watch the other games, and prepare for tonight. …
— First off, I’m told Lee Corso picked UW in an upset over LSU tonight on GameDay this morning — I didn’t see it as I was actually at my son’s soccer game, which in this weather was a whole lot of fun, but I’ll take everyone’s word for it.
— Here’s my preview for today’s game with some interesting comments from a couple players about how different the feeling is this year compared to last season. What most fans I’m sure want to see most, however, is that different feeling translate to improvement on the field.
Erik Lacitis, a newside reporter for the Times, has this look at how fans are revved up for the beginning of a new era of UW football.
— Here’s a preview story and some predictions from the New Orleans Times-Picayune. And here’s the preview from the Baton Rouge Advocate.
— The line remains at LSU by 17.5 to 18.5 with a total of 53. BetFirms.com picks LSU. You can also bet on the first half — LSU is a 9.5 or 10-point favorite by the half.
— Lots of Pac-10 links from the Spokesman-Review.
— UW recruit Nick Montana threw for 152 yards last night as Oaks Christian beat Alemany 28-17 in what was a pretty good game
Mason Kelly, our new prep blogger, has this note on UW commit Chris Young along with some video.
— A few of you have asked about the potential of LeGarrette Blount sitting out this year at Oregon and redshirting and coming back next season. Read this column by George Schroeder of the Eugene Register-Guard and it’s clear he’ll never play for the Ducks again. As Schroeder writes, what’s more likely to happen is Blount ends up at a lower-division school playing immediately and trying to salvage some hope for the draft.
— Today is the final cutdown day in the NFL, which obviously could impact a few former Huskies. You can follow it here.
— Finally, I’m planning on a pre-game chat, maybe around 6 p.m. or so. So check back then.
All for now.
