Wednesday night notes — Bring your rain gear

Roughly 64 hours now to kickoff, and it sounds like we might see something we haven’t seen in Seattle in seemingly months — rain.

Here’s the forecast for the weekend in Lincoln, showing the possibility of scattered thunderstorms. Normally, it’d be easy to assume wet weather might favor UW. But I can’t remember the last time the Huskies had a practice in the rain — my lawn is proof that it’s been a while (though I know to be careful writing that as it’ll come soon enough).

It’s always tempting to try to figure out which team unusual weather may favor, but I usually find that to be a pretty futile task. Sounds like a good trip to leave the golf clubs behind, however.

Here are a few more links to pass the time tonight. …

— The most pressing personnel issue for Nebraska is the health of cornerback Alfonzo Dennard, who has yet to play this season. According to HuskerExtra.com, Dennard did not practice on Wednesday, but has not been ruled out for Saturday.

— ESPN.com draft analyst Todd McShay includes Desmond Trufant on his list of players who have stood out so far, noting that he has been a physical presence against the run and has shown a knack for big plays. He writes further that a breakout year this year for Trufant could set him up to be a player to watch for the 2013 draft.
