Wednesday morning news and notes — Husky Stadium update and a little more

Some of you may have been wondering why you haven’t heard anything new on the Husky Stadium front, since the initial date for when the school wanted to have all the bids from potential developers was July 1.
The reason is that the the school later quietly set the actual deadline for receiving bids to July 14. UW athletic director Scott Woodward said that July 1 was “a tentative date” and it was pushed back a couple more weeks “to get more people interested.”
Woodward said once all the bids are received, the Husky Stadium Advisory Committee will meet and come up with a recommendation to forward to the UW Board of Regents.
It’s still possible that construction could begin after the 2010 season, though after 2011 may be more realistic — the change in this deadline doesn’t impact that in any way, apparently.
However, it’s important to remember that the timeline won’t be determined until the school selects a developer. As part of this process, each developer will propose a timeline for construction and one could say it could begin after 2010, another could say after 2011, etc. So all of those types of questions on timelines (as well as capacity, what it will look like, etc.) can’t be officially answered until after a developer is chosen.
ALSO TODAY. …
