Friday morning links — Huard latest to join trick shot craze

Former UW QB Brock Huard still holds the school record for best passing efficiency rating in a season (153.8 in 1997). And in something I missed the other day, he recently put some of those skills on display in this trick shot video and question-and-answer session explaining how he did it. Ted Miller writes that he was something of a participant, as well.

I’ll guess we’ll know the trick shot craze is really getting out of hand if we see one from Mike Salk.

IN OTHER NEWS. …

— Here’s an overview of Eastern Washington heading into the off-season from the school’s web site, including combined spring stats. EWU will be UW’s first opponent next season, Sept. 3 at Husky Stadium.

— The Denver Post has an interesting story on how Colorado is trying to get up to speed on its new Pac-12 foes.

— Miller also wonders if any Pac-12 schools might be interested in former N.C. State, but immediately eligible, quarterback Russell Wilson, mentioning specifically Cal and UCLA.

— Rivals.com also looks at where Wilson might end up, as well as wondering just how good Arizona State might be this year. (And this story mentions Washington in a general listing of teams that basically are starting over at QB, but doesn’t indicate it might actually happen).

— Miller also examines the kickers for all Pac-12 teams, an area where UW should grade out well in 2011.

— The BusinessofCollegeSports.com breaks down all the conference TV deals in the wake of the Pac-12’s agreement this week.

— That site also has a list of schools that have separate media deals, UW coming in 27th.

All for now.
