Tuesday mid-afternoon notes

Packing up the rain gear as I head up to UW for today’s practice and interviews — it’s another wet one, and looks like it will be all the way through Saturday.
UW coach Steve Sarkisian made note of that in his rather brief appearance on the Pac-10 coaches conference call today. Sarkisian appears near the end of the call so he sometimes doesn’t get too many questions depending on the week, and he didn’t today, with just two lobbed his way.
The first concerned the health of Jake Locker, and Sarkisian reiterated what he said on Monday that “he’s going to play, he’ll be fine.”
The other question wondered whether we might see a shootout on Saturday between two of the top-rated QBs that could be available for the NFL Draft Class of 2011 — Locker and Stanford’s Andrew Luck.
Sarkisian said that “both sides probably hope not, in all honesty. Both sides would hope their defenses can step up and play well. And the elements might play a factor. It’ll be a chilly, windy, rainy night, which could also play a factor in that.”
With that, the questions for Sarkisian, uh, dried up. So to fill out this entry, I’ll also pass along a few links:
— CBSSports.com draft expert Rob Rang has Luck No. 1 and Locker No. 8 in his latest mock draft, released this week.
— Hard to find good info on Stanford, but here’s an overview of the Cardinal heading into the week from the San Jose Mercury News.
Ted Miller takes an early look at this week’s games.
— Lots of Pac-10 links from Vince Grippi in Spokane.
— The Eugene Register-Guard ranks UW fifth in the Pac-10 this week and also looks at the value of having a good backup QB.
All for now.
