Thursday afternoon links — just how much offense does UW return, anyway?

We’ll start the links with one UW fans should like — this list from Phil Steele of the percentage of yards each school’s offense has returning this season.
Shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that UW would be high given how young the offense was a year ago. Still, interesting to see Steele’s numbers bear it out as he has UW at No. 2 in the country with 99.13 percent of its yards returning from last season (all but the 45 combined rushing yards of Curtis Shaw, Willie Griffin and Paul Homer and the 63 receiving yards of Homer).
Of Pac-10 teams, Arizona is next at 91.53 followed by Oregon at 86.23 (and assuming he accounted for Jeremiah Masoli). The Pac-10 team losing the most is Arizona State, 117th in the nation at 25.78 percent.
— In the most newsy Pac-10 item of the day, ESPN’s Ted Miller wraps up the announcement that no wrongdoing was found in the golden parachute awarded to outgoing Oregon AD Mike Bellotti.
— Miller also had this chat today in which he says that the Huskies are a bowl team and could make noise in the conference race if the defense comes around. Also, lots of interesting thoughts on expansion.
— Speaking of which, one Denver writer today made a case for Colorado’s inclusion in the Pac-10.
— Nice feature on Warren Moon from a paper in Saskaton (link found via the UW’s own DawgBlawg).
— Moon also has some thoughts on Jake Locker in a podcast with the TucsonCitizen.com.
More from practice later.
