Back to catch up on some links. …
— First off, in case you missed the sad news of the day, legendary NFL coach Don Coryell — who also coached and played at UW — died yesterday. Like a lot of fans of my generation, watching Coryell’s teams light it up was a highlight of many Sunday afternoons. Hard to believe he’s not in the NFL Hall of Fame.
Elise Woodward had what apparently was a good interview with UW strength and conditoning coach Ivan Lewis the other day (I actually haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet).
— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller ranks Jake Locker No. 2 among his Pac-10 Top 25, meaning two Huskies will make the list — Mason Foster at No. 11 is the other. (I think you could have made a case for Chris Polk somewhere, but sure there are lots of guys on lots of teams you could make a case for.)
— Miller also has his own take on the Fanhouse.com series examining college football finances.
— ESPN.com is also reporting today that the NCAA is going to start publishing the APR ratings for individual coaches (probably not a number John Calipari will be bragging about).
— The Arizona Republic has a little update on the summer activities of QB Brett Hundley, who looks to be the top signal-caller on UW’s list for the Class of 2011.
— The Eugene Register-Guard also has a mention of Hundley in this look at Oregon’s QB prospects for the Class of 2011
— Sportshandicapper DonBest.com says winning the Pac-10 title this year isn’t out of the question for the Huskies
Brent Crow of Sportsmemo.com says he’s not sure he saw a better coached team last year than the Huskies.
— The Big Ten says it will remain named the Big Ten no matter how many teams it has.
— PreSnapRead.com, another college football site I heartily recommend, has a good wrapup of news around the sport.
All for now.
