Friday links — A look at the weekend ahead

The Huskies are off this weekend, and there’s no real news expected to be coming from Montlake for a few days. So maybe even more than ever, this post is just kind of a mishmash of stuff I found interesting to read this morning. …

— The official UW site provided an update on the progress of the Husky Stadium renovation, set to begin almost immediately after the Oregon game on Nov. 7.

— The Post also examines how Stanford got so good in football and also then provides much of the answer in this story on QB Andrew Luck.

— The Post also looks at Colorado’s worsening cornerback situation after the suspensions of five players this week — the Buffs are UW’s next opponent, coming to Seattle on Oct. 15

— RalphieReport looks at where Colorado’s season goes from here.

Jon Wilner has UW fourth in his weekly conference ratings.

— Oregon had a scare for a half against Cal last night, but then in what often happens with the Ducks, they blew out the Bears in the second half. They also watched running back LaMichael James go down with a gruesome elbow injury. James, though, says he’ll be back soon. Here’s more on James.
