Husky Football Blog

The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

September 7, 2009 at 9:26 PM

Monday night links, notes

Still had football on the mind after that FSU-Miami game and figured you might also. …
— Our UW stories for Tuesday’s paper are already posted. I wrote this about the safety situation and Victor Aiyewa being promoted to co-starter status. Columnist Jerry Brewer, meanwhile, wrote about how odd it felt to Steve Sarkisian to be congratulated for losing a game, and how UW will handle being a favorite this week.
Matt Hayes of The Sporting News writes that people shouldn’t say that LSU looked lackluster but instead that the Huskies looked good. (However, I disagree with his stance on Larry Scott. People want Scott to be more vocal nationally on issues involving the Pac-10 and that’s what he’s doing. I think there’s a sense throughout the conference that Boise State and the WAC should have done more than they did).
— Here’s an interesting look at some of the stats in the UW-LSU game from the LSU side. The same site also has this discussion of the LSU-UW game, one of the panelists saying that the LSU fan base is “seemingly in a state of panic.”
Les Miles had a lot of plaudits for the Huskies while in Seattle. But this story indicates he also thinks that the Huskies had some advantages as he says it was “a set-up game. It was a great opportunity for them to sneak up on us.”
— One last one from LSU as columnist Randy Rosetta opines on the differing perspectives of the game.
— Here’s a good update on Idaho from The Spokesman-Review. I’ll have a little scouting report on the Vandals in a day or two.
— Finally, I’ll have a few more player notes and quotes from today’s press conference at some point tomorrow. One to pass along now is that I asked Jake Locker today about the fact that the announcers on Saturday’s telecast indicated that last year he weighed about 240 pounds or so. They noted he’d lost 10-15 pounds and now weighed 225. Locker said he was never that heavy and has lost only five pounds or so. He has redistributed his weight a bit, as have a lot of the players, thanks in large part to UW’s new strength and conditioning program, which emphasizes training for your specific position and football skills and not just pure strength.
All for now.
