Sunday notes — GameDay going to Auburn

A few day-after notes:
— First off, ESPN’s GameDay is going to the Auburn-Clemson game this week. Had UW beaten BYU it had a much better chance of getting the show. There doesn’t seem to be another marquee game to warrant it this season.
— Naitonal stats are updated on the NCAA site and most notable for UW is that Jermaine Kearse is ranked third in the nation in receiving yards with an average of 143.5 per game.
— Here’s the Washington team page that neatly details where UW ranks in the Pac-10 and nationally. Given how early in the year it is hard to make much of the numbers yet.
— Both of ESPN’s bowl projectors have UW headed to the Vegas Bowl.
Ted Miller gave Jake Locker a helmet sticker but also says the jury is still out on UW .
— More on the game from the Syracuse point of view from the SU student paper.
— Finally, you may have heard that SU coach Doug Marrone had a little tirade after the game. Bud Withers of our staff has the details:

Syracuse coach Doug Marrone had a profanity-laced post-game talk with his team, audible to media members outside the ‘Cuse locker room at Hec Edmundson Pavilion.
Marrone, who has brought tight discipline to the Orange program, had harsh words for the way they “travel,” apparently referring to habits on the road that he feels don’t help lead to victory.
On the flight out to Seattle, for instance, Marrone wanted to discourage sleeping on the plane to limit the effects of possible jet lag, so he had the lights kept on the entire flight. The Orange watched two movies, “The Karate Kid” and “Shrek,” and between them, he had the team get up and walk around.
The visiting locker room at the UW is so tight on space that coaches often leave the door open and address players who are both inside and out of the locker room, with only partitions shielding the area outside the locker room from others.
