First off, wanted to send out a reminer that the Times will host a live chat Thursday at noon with Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott.
Here are the details and how to access the chat, which should be a good one.
And to pass the time tonight, a few more links and notes. …
— My story for the Thursday paper has been posted. I wrote about kicker Erik Folk, who was an unquestioned star of Saturday’s game. He’s been solid throughout his career but said some off-season advice from older brother Nick Folk (kicker for the New York Jets) helped him get back on track after a little of a slump late last season.
— Lots of interesting stuff from the Husky Honks today on KJR-AM, who had Don James as a special guest making some frank comments about what he saw on Saturday. Listen here.
— The Sports Network has this breakdown of the game as well as a prediction of a 31-27 win for Hawaii.
— In Bud Withers’ latest blog post, he examines why SEC lines seem bigger than those of other conferences.
— A couple of Hawaii notes here.
— The flip card for this week’s game is already available on GoHuskies.com. The head referee for the game is a veteran Pac-12 ref, Jack Wood. Recent UW games I know he has worked are the 2009 loss at Arizona State, and last year’s win at USC and Washington State.
— CoachSark’s site with some photos from today’s practice.
— This is a week old, but here’s a good breakdown of Hawaii’s offense from RalphieReport, a blog dedicated to Colorado football.
— Steve Sarkisian isn’t the only Pac-12 coach trying to light a fire under his team this week. Here’s a report on Rick Neuheisel’s stern words to his UCLA team after practice Wednesday night.
— The Sporting News ranks UW eighth in the Pac-12 this week.
— Jon Wilner with up-to-the-minute expansion news.
— As might be expected, Eastern Washington’s corners graded out well.
All for now.
