Friday links — Thompson perseveres, and more

We’ll kick off the Friday links with Steve Kelley’s column today on UW senior defensive tackle Everrette Thompson, who talks about the transition players such as himself had to make when the school changed coaches following the 2008 season.

Thompson is one of 22 players left on the roster originally brought in by Tyrone Willingham. The rest have arrived since. Of those left, however, many remain key players — using the school’s official depth chart, 10 will likely start on Saturday.

IN OTHER NEWS. …

— Here are some notes on Eastern Washington from The Spokesman-Review. And more here on how eager the Eagles are to play this game.

— UW’s official site offers a feature on Senio Kelemete as well as a link to a printable flip card for the game. The head referee is listed as Land Clark, who I think may be one of the new ones hired by the conference this year — I know he previously worked Mountain West Conference games. The conference never officially named its new officials, or those it was dispatching. UPDATE — As I’ve been reminded of since writing this, Clark was actually the head ref for UW’s win over Nebraska in the Holiday Bowl, so he was indeed an MWC official last year.

— Here’s an Sports Network preview of the game focused on Eastern Washington.

— UW coach Steve Sarkisian will be a guest on the Dave “Softy” Mahler Show on KJR-AM at 12:15 p.m.

— The Seattle Weekly, missing the memo that hope springs eternal this time of year, ponders all that could go wrong for UW.

Anthony Gimino says UW is playing one of the easier schedules in the Pac-12 this year.

D’Andre Goodwin caught three passes for 49 yards with a long of 26 as the Broncos lost to the Cardinals (no stats for Austin Sylvester).

Donald Butler had four tackles for the Chargers.

— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller reviews the Utah and Arizona State results from last night and says it was a mixed bag. ASU lost a backup safety — a spot where it was already thin — for the season.

T.J. Simers says Rick Neuheisel is not inspiring much confidence.
