Husky Football Blog

The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

June 10, 2010 at 11:09 PM

Thursday night notes and links, including some actual UW football news

With everything else swirling the last week or so, haven’t had much on here solely about the Huskies.
But there is one bit of news tonight as UW coach Steve Sarkisian said today that backup defensive tackle Tyrone Duncan has left the program. Sarkisian said Duncan is hoping for more playing time somewhere else.
Duncan, a member of the Class of 2007 from Westlake Village, Calif., would have been a junior in the fall and ended the spring as a backup at defensive tackle but generally in the rotation. However, with reinforcements arriving in the fall, the competition up front figures to get a little more stiff — though the line remains one spot where the Huskies are shy on depth.
Duncan played sparingly at UW, seeing action in just one game in 2008 as a redshirt freshman and in six games last year, making just one tackle.
IN OTHER NEWS. …
Lots of expansion and USC-related links out there tonight and I’ll try to pass along a few of the more noteworthy:
— Times columnist Steve Kelley says Pac-10 expansion “is a very good thing.”
Bud Withers has our news story on expansion.
— And here’s my story on the USC sanctions.
Rick Neuheisel said he’ll be more than happy to make a return trip to Colorado (and think of a year where UCLA could have road games at UW, Colorado and Oregon).
Lane Kiffin says USC has survived expansion once and will do so again.
— ESPN.com’s Pat Forde says the sanctions proved that USC isn’t bulletproof and the NCAA isn’t gutless.
— Orangebloods.com has the latest on how Texas A&M could throw a wrench into the Pac-16.
— The Arizona Republic talked to the father of Brett Hundley, a QB UW is recruiting, about how the Pac-10 expansion could impact his recruiting.
— Expansion will be a very good thing, as well, for Washington State’s pocket book (you could argue that the Cougars may be one of the biggest winners of all of this given the percent raise in budget it figures to get).
— The LA Times says USC faces an uphill battle with its plans to appeal.
— USC AD Mike Garrett remained defiant talking to a group of boosters Thursday night, saying that reading the report made him think that “there was nothing but a lot of envy. They wish they all were Trojans.”
— LA Times columnist Bill Plaschke says USC’s ego led to its downfall.
Chris Dufresne looks at how long it might take for USC to dig out of this hole.
— Finally, the LA Times says this all may cost USC “millions of dollars.”
