A little day-after reading

No way I can get to everything that’s out there, but I’ll pass along some of the things that caught my eye this morning. …
— The one recruit known to be on an official visit was linebacker Josh Shirley of Fontana, Calif. He told a newspaper in his home area that “it’s crazy” in Seattle, but that he has no plans to commit now. He also has USC and UCLA on his list.
— In news that isn’t necessarily good for UW fans, Chris Mortensen is Tweeting that Jake Locker could be the No. 1 QB on the boards for the 2010 draft — yep, he means next year, as Locker could easily have that option available to him if he keeps playing like this. And if you remember, Locker’s father, Scott, said last month that he wouldn’t rule out that Jake might consider that depending on how this season goes.
— LA Times columnist Bill Plascke says the fault for the USC loss has to go to Pete Carroll.
Don Borst of Fox Spots.com, and a former UW beat writer who still lives in the area, says that UW’s turnaround is hard to believe and places it in context with a few others of recent years.
Ted Miller leads off his weekly “What We Learned” column with an item on UW, predicting that in a few years, Husky fans will once again be grousing about going to the Sun Bowl.
Austin Murphy of SI.com writes that UW may have cost the Trojans a shot at the national title.
Scott Wolf has lots of USC-related links.
Michael Lev of the Orange County Register also has lots of good USC-related stuff, and says there’s no question Locker hurt the Trojans a lot more than Terrelle Pryor did the week before.
Jon Wilner writes that UW helped open up a big path for Cal to the Rose Bowl — while noting that Dec. 5 game at Husky Stadium suddenly looks a lot different.
— The USC Ripsit blog has some interesting pictures of the game. So does Coach Sark’s blog.
I’m heading out for a family thing for a few hours but I’ll be back later this afternoon with a few more notes and whatever other news may break.
