A few links and a plug

I promise this will remain a LeBron-free zone. …
— USC has lost another player as redshirt freshman cornerback Byron Moore Jr., in line to be at least a backup free safety this year — maybe the most significant loss yet of a player who would have impacted the team this season. The Orange County Register has a good review of what’s happened to USC since the sanctions. (One thing I should add on Moore is that he will obviously become a recruitable player again after this season and UW will likely be right in the mix and could have a little in with him as Moore was a HS teammate of incoming Husky Sean Parker).
— The American Football Coaches Association has announced that USC will not be eligible for the Coaches Poll this season. USC will still be eligible for the AP poll, which has never made teams on probation ineligible.
— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller rates the Pac-10’s “three-headed” offensive monsters and puts the UW trio of Jake Locker, Jermaine Kearse and Chris Polk at the top.
— The Cougar Tracks BYU blog notes that Jake Heaps would become the first freshman to ever start at QB for the Cougars if he gets the nod against the Huskies.
— Here are the details of ESPN’s deal with ACC.
— Lastly, a little plug today for a Husky-related golf tournament that helps a good cause — the Dave McLean Memorial Golf Classic. The tournament honors a former member of the UW crew team from the early ’60s and the proceeds benefit the University of Washington Men’s Crew Team in the form of an annual scholarship. The event has evolved into the single largest fundraising event for the Crew Program.
The scholarship goes to a crew team membere deemed to have the requisite “class, work ethic, drive, passion and financial need.”
The tournament is Aug. 14 at Washington National. You can find more details here.
All for now.
