Live chat at noon — and a few links: Syracuse feeling confident

First off, I’ll host a live chat at noon today to look back, ahead, or stay in the moment, whichever you prefer.
Now, onto some cut-and-dried links. …
Bud Withers says that UW and WSU had equally disappointing opening weekends.
— Withers also wrote the UW notebook for today’s paper, looking at the loss of Will Mahan for the season (I’ll be back at practice today).
— Nice feature on Cort Dennison from GoHuskies.com.
— The Syracuse student newspaper details the confidence of the Orange defenders (and one who is just not quite sure what the name is of the quarterback he’ll be facing this week).
— The SU student paper also quotes Syracuse safety Shamarko Thomas saying the goal is to hold UW to 14 points or fewer Saturday. Thomas also is quoted as saying that: “We’re going to hit him. Sacks, smacks, knock him out of bounds. Change his mind.” That win over Akron must really have been something.
— The Daily Orange also has a nice feature on Locker.
— SU had 10 true frosh play this weekend (is there a team in college football that didn’t play a million true frosh last weekend?) but the Post-Standard says they know a larger task awaits now.
— Some more Syracuse links.
— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller says Locker and the UW offense need to play better at home. Miller also has a note on the loss of Mahan.
— ESPN.com’s Big East blogger picks UW to win 24-20 while Miller picks UW 31-22.
— In a pay story, ESPN recruiting analyst Greg Biggins has a look at UW’s QB prospects now that Brett Hundley has moved on. In a nutshell, Biggins says that the first choice now is Adam Pittser of Richmond, Ill. Scout.com reports that Pittser will visit UW for the Oct. 9 game against Arizona State, so seems likely nothing will happen on the QB recruiting front until after that.
— Lots of Pac-10 links from Vince Grippi.
All for now.
