Thursday links — Live chat at Noon

Before we get to the links, a quick reminder that we will have a live chat today at noon. …

— We’ll start the links with the incredibly sad news out of Oregon State that Beaver defensive tackle Fred Thompson died of a heart attack last night. Thompson was a graduate of Oakland Tech High where he was a teammate of UW receiver DiAndre Campbell. He also was avildy recruited by UW, taking a visit to Washington in Dec. 2009 (for the win over Cal) and was thought leaning toward Washington before ultimately signing with OSU. Here’s more from The Oregonian.
