Live chat at noon — and Thursday morning links

Well, after the sun of yesterday, back to rain and gloom today — the expected forecast for Saturday, as well.
A good day to stay instead and chat about football. So I’ll hold our weekly live chat here today at noon.
I’ll also have my weekly Thursday 10 a.m. segment on the Brock and Salk Show on 710 ESPN Seattle.
Until then, here are some links. …
— For my main story today, I wrote a little about Stanford guard David DeCastro and noted that he’s one of four OLs who grew up within an hour or so of UW currently starting elsewhere. Obviously, not the fault of the current staff, but still a frustration in seeing a number of good players at a really key spot who have gotten away.
— The San Francisco Chronicle looks at the Andrew Luck-Jake Locker matchup.
— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller picks Stanford 40-31.
— Miller also has his weekly “What to Watch” entry and highlights the Locker-Luck battle.
— GoHuskies.com looks at yesterday’s news about grad rates. Miller also wraps up the graduation news.
Brock Huard and Mike Salk debated yesterday how much Locker should play Saturday, a question I think is a little more moot as it appears Locker is healthier this week than the past two. Included is Huard’s assessment that the Stanford game may be more winnable than people think.
— Our weekly high school notebook has some updates on Danny Shelton (not recruiting, but playing), Nick Holt (the player, not the coach) and some others.
— The Oregonian’s Ken Goe wraps up all the trash talking between Oregon and USC, notably the little back-and-forth between coaches Chip Kelly and Lane Kiffin.
— Washington State has fallen behind in its goal for filling out its athletic foundation.
Jon Wilner looks at the bowl prospects for Pac-10 teams and declares that UW’s outlook is “not good.”
— Wilner also has a good look at what is going on with the WAC, with Fresno State and Nevada expected to stay through the 2011 season.
— And this is more basketball than football, but ESPN.com’s Andy Katz takes a look at the future of the WAC and how that could impact the efforts of Seattle U. to land in a conference for hoops.
All for now.
