The season is obviously over, and the big news of the off-season settled. But there continues to be some stuff out there about/involving the Huskies, so here’s a sampling today. …
Jon Wilner ranked the Pac-10 coaches based on how they did this season and has Steve Sarkisian fifth and a surprising choice for last.
Ted Miller picks an underrated player of the year for each team and chooses Mason Foster for the Huskies.
— Miller also has a good look at the possibility of the Pac-10 expanding. And he makes the salient point that Larry Scott isn’t saying anything different now than when he was first hired, which is important to realize. Scott says the conference will explore it, but he also isn’t indicating that anything is imminent. My guess on this right now is that there isn’t really a move afoot to expand — as Miller points out, there aren’t a ton of options for expansion and the issues involved with those schools remain the same ones that have prevented it from happening to date. But if the Big Ten really expands and leaves the Pac-10 as the only major conference without a conference title game, then I could see things changing in terms of how aggressive the Pac-10 might be on this topic.
Nick Daschel chooses some off-beat Pac-10 awards, one that relives a UW moment Husky fans won’t mind reliving.
— The Sporting News’ All-Pac-10 team includes just one Husky — Foster.
— ESPN draft expert Todd McShay examines Jake Locker’s decision, and though it’s an Insider piece, you can pretty much get the gist of it from the free preview.
— Here’s another view of Locker’s decision.
