The big news Wednesday was the school’s launching of the HuskyStadium.com web site, with just about all you’d want to know about the renovation.
I wrote a couple of different pieces about the unveiling: this story, on how the renovation may impact the ticket prices for the average fan; and this Take 2 piece on how the renovation could help push UW back to the top of the conference (it’s certainly the hope at the school, anyway).
Also in our paper today is this column from Jerry Brewer on how Jake Locker and Matt Hasselbeck are working together in Tennessee. Locker could get some reps with the first unit when the Titans play their first game against Minnesota Saturday night.
The Huskies and Danny Shelton (pictured in a Jim Bates photo) will be back in action today at 3:15 p.m.
