Husky Football Blog

The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

June 22, 2010 at 10:07 AM

Tuesday notes

Back from having a good at the Detlef Schrempf golf tournament yesterday, and saw a few ex-Husky coaches and players there, notably Don James, Dick Baird and Dane Looker.
One notable absentee this year was former UW QB Billy Joe Hobert, who apparently recently suffered a back injury that has rendered him unable to golf at the moment.
The most surprising revalation of the day was learning that KING 5’s consumer reporter Jesse Jones — or should that be JESSE!!! JONES!!! (which I hope makes sense if you’ve ever seen his on-air sign-off) — was a college football player, playing four years at Montana State in the early ’80s. Talked to him for a while about his college football days and he continues to be a big fan, attending a few UW games most years, he said.
I’m actually off for another golf outing today — it’s that time of year, and the sun is actually out in Seattle today. So another day there won’t be much on the blog (in fact, it will likely be pretty sporadic through the July 4th weekend as this is the time of year for me to slow down a little bit with a little vacation planned, and simply not that much going on for a while).
But I did find a few links today worth passing along:
— SI.com’s Stewart Mandel breaks down the possible division alignments for the new Pac-10. As some of you have noted, UW did miss playing in LA a few times in the ’80s and ’90s under the old system and it didn’t seem to impact things all that much., I am planning on a blog post soon on the years when that happened.
Jon Wilner assesses the winners and losers of expansion, including the Mountain West among his losers saying that Utah for Boise State isn’t an equal swap.
— Arizona Daily Star columnist Greg Hansen has an interesting column on the history of Pac-10 expansion, noting that Washington was one of the schools initially most vocal to letting in Arizona and Arizona State in the mid-70s (something I did not know).
All for now.
