Tuesday a.m. links — Carroll says Locker’s the best he’s seen

Another beautiful fall day, one that is greeted with more praise for the Huskies in the wake of Saturday’s win over USC. …
— Specifically, USC coach Pete Carroll on Monday called UW quarterback Jake Locker the best he’s faced in his time with the Trojans in a column by T.J. Simers of the LA Times. Here’s the exact quote from Carroll:

“That’s the best quarterback we’ve played in nine years here. Jake Locker has ridiculous talent, and had he remained healthy last year, Tyrone [Willingham] would still be coaching there.”

The latter part of that statement won’t excite UW fans, and ESPN.com’s Ted Miller throws out a few other QBs Carroll could have mentioned, as well while speculating on where Locker’s career may go from here.
All of this is what happens when a team starts winning.
— The San Jose Mercury News has an interesting overview of Stanford’s season to date.
— A few of you have asked about an expected attendance for Saturday’s game. I don’t know an official estimate but I wouldn’t expect it to be any greater than the 33,560 who attended the San Jose State game, which is obviously a rivalry and a local opponent. Jon Wilner did a nice job last week explaining some of the struggles Stanford is having to sell tickets.
Ken Goe has some interesting thoughts on the Pac-10’s round-robin schedule.
— Miller also looks at this week’s Pac-10 games.
— Finally, lots of Pac-10 links from Vince Grippi.
All for now.
