Tuesday night-Wednesday morning links

Getting the Wednesday morning links out of the way on Tuesday night. …
— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller, a former UW beat writer for the PI, was in town and will likely have a veritable plethora of Husky stuff the next few days. He started with this quick look at the relationship of Steve Sarkisian and Lane Kiffin and how it may be impacted now that the latter is the coach at USC.
— He also filed these quick notes from UW practice. I saw the same interaction with Nate Williams that Miller mentions — Sarkisian made Williams do five pushups as punishment. The coaches encourage defenders to go for the ball, not just to learn to force turnovers but also to help the offensive players learn how to prevent them.
— Sark’s Daily Top Five has WR Devin Aguilar as the player of the day, and the Jake Locker-to-Aguilar pass that I described in the early entry as the play of the day. I called it 40 yards, which a few of us decided it was in the press room. I see Sark has it at 60. One reason for such discrepncies is that they don’t tackle so figuring out where plays end is always a little of a guess on our part.
— Interesting stuff out of Oregon tonight as the school’s president, Robert Lariviere, admitted today that he basically forced Mike Bellotti out as athletic director. Bellotti, however, seemed to dispute that. Lariviere also said that there is a clean-up coming for an athletic department that has obviously had a lot of issues of late.
— As he told us last week when he was in town, Daniel Te’o-Nesheim had a visit with the Patriots. The story indicates he will also soon visit the Raiders. Te’o-Nesheim was also named to the Shutdown Corner All-Sleeper Team.
All for now.
