First off, this plug for the UW Alumni Association’s button slogan contest for this season, which ends Sunday.
Here’s the info from the UWAA:
It’s time for the UW Alumni Association’s annual button slogan contest. This year, we’ve partnered with University Book Store to give buttons away at both home and away games. Until now they’ve only been available for the UW’s road games.
Contest entries are due July 18 and can be submitted on UWalum.com’s cheer page. Winning entries get a $25 gift card to the U Book Store, and whomever wins the contest for away games also gets free entry into that game’s Washington Warm Up, the official tailgate parties of the UW football team on the road.
And here’s the link.
IN OTHER NEWS. …
— Brandon Huffman is reporting that UCLA has added a junior college QB, Darius Bell of City College of San Francisco, to its roster. Bell will have three years of eligibility remaining and UCLA can only hope that certain aspects of this may turn out as well as the last time a Pac-10 school added a CCSF QB late in the game — Jeremiah Masoli at Oregon in 2008. UCLA is also thought to be one of two finalists for Scottsdale Hiigh Brett Hundley, whom the Huskies are also targeting, for the Class of 2011. That Bell is now apparently officially a Bruin could obviously impact what Hundley does.
— Doesn’t sound like you’ll hear anything from USC RB Dillon Baxter on his role in the USC allegation that he was contacted by other schools about transferring, an allegation the school has since said was unfounded. Bryan Fischer reported today that Baxter said he has been told not to comment on the matter.
— Some interesting stuff in the HBO interview of Pete Carroll about the USC sanctions.
All for now.
