Monday night links and notes

Back in town and see that a quick perusal of the net reveals a few items worth passing along:
— Most notably is that Gig Harbor’s Austin Seferian-Jenkins has set Aug. 16 as the date he will reveal his choice of college, according to the Tacoma News-Tribune, in a press conference at 6:30 p.m. at the Gig Harbor Yacht Club (not even sure they’d allow someone like me in there so may have to call on someone else to cover that one). Conventional wisdom is that it’s either Texas or UW for Seferian-Jenkins, with UCLA also on the periphery (and here’s a Texas take on the announcement of his announcement). Seferian-Jenkins is considered one of the top commits in the state of Washington this year.
— Speaking of top recruits, here’s a Sporting News item on Kasen Williams whittling his list to five.
— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller rounds up the official tally of starters for all Pac-10 teams, which shows UW at the top with 19. Of course, there’s always a little semantics involved in this stuff. UW basically lost at least two full-time starters of a year ago on offense (FB Paul Homer and OL Ben Ossai) and just lost TE Kavario Middleton. But the overall point, that UW has a lot of starters back and as a result, a lot of experience, is obviously valid.
— ESPN is also reliving the “50 Most Painful Outcomes in College Football HIstory” and has the 1982 Apple Cup at No. 44. (Wonder if the 1990 loss to UCLA, which might have cost UW a national title that year, as well, will also show up?)
— With the season approaching, The Oregonian’s Pac-10 blog is back in business with news and notes from every team in the conference.
— A writer for the Football Outsiders says Daniel Te’o-Nesheim “could be the top pass rusher” of all NFL rookies this year.
Jon Wilner had more good stuff today on how Pac-10 expansion and how the new conference might be divided.
— Vegas disagrees a little bit with Pac-10 media, establishing Oregon and Oregon State as co-favorites to win the conference this year.
All for now.
