Thursday a.m. links

For some reason, I have the B-52s playing in my head. …
— For my story for the paper today — we do still do one of those — I wrote about the vast connections between this week’s opponent, Idaho, and the UW coaching staff. It’s pretty much just a coincidence and that a lot of these guys knew each other already — and largely, that so many already knew Nick Holt, who spent about a decade at Idaho in various roles — that UW’s coaching staff has been so Vandal-ized. As far as I can tell, Idaho isn’t on the schedule again anytime soon, so this would be the last of any sort of reunion for these guys.
— ESPN’s Ted Miller picks the Huskies to win comfortably. And it does make you wonder if any team riding a 15-game losing streak has ever been such a big favorite.
Nick Daschel — yes, that Nick Daschel — visited the Husky Stadium tailgating scene before Saturday’s game and produced this video report.
— Daschel also picks the Huskies to win, though not to cover. He also picks Purdue to beat the Ducks in Eugene.
— Interesting note in our Prep Blog today about a former teammate of UW’s Steve Sarkisian who is now the head coach at Stanwood.
— Former Seattle PI scribe Dan Raley is now writing weekly Pac-10 notebooks for Athlon’s. Here is this week’s edition.
— The LSU beat writer who said it was “embarrassing” that the Tigers were playing UW says in this column that the Husky coaches just did a better job of preparing their team Saturday than their LSU counterparts.
— A writer for the Idaho Press previews the game and picks UW 37-17.
— The line has stayed at 21 with an over-under of 53. Speaking of which, the over-under was 53 last week, as well — in most of the places I looked, anyway — and when UW scored that final touchdown it made the total 54, meaning that last TD wasn’t meaningless to someone somewhere.
All for now, though a reminder about our live chat at noon.
