Wednesday links — Live chat at noon

We’ll hold our weekly live chat today at noon.

Until then, a few links. …

— The coaches convention is wrapping up, but as yet, no substantive news on UW’s two remaining vacancies. The end of the convention also means the end of the recruiting dead period this weekend.

— Rivals.com reported last night that defensive end Joe Mathis of Upland, Calif. — who had given a way early commitment to UW for the Class of 2013 last fall — has reopened his recruitment. With a commitment that early, you could probably see that coming. The story mentions that UW’s defensive coaching staff changes helped lead Mathis to decide to open things back up.

— Yakima.com columnist Roger Underwood writes a little about the upbringing of new UW assistant Peter Sirmon, who not only attended Oregon but grew up on Palouse Street. He also notes that the opposing QB in the title game in which Sirmon quarterbacked Walla Walla was future Mariner Willie Bloomquist.

Jon Wilner examines the winners and losers of the college bowl season.

Chris Dufresne of the LA Times breaks down the top 10 moments of the college football season.

— Dufresne also recaps the meeting of some of the conference commissioners in New Orleans that could lead to changes in the BCS.

— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller looks at what was learned during the Pac-12’s bowl season.

— The Orange County Register breaks down USC’s scholarship situation. Here’s more on how USC’s going to try to make it work with 75 scholarships in 2012.

— USA Today profiles Ken Griffey Jr.’s son, Trey, who already has offers as a receiver from a couple of Pac-12 schools (though not UW).

— Oklahoma columnist Berry Tramel says the regular season is what’s wrong with college football.

— UCLA’s new strength coach has an interesting background.

All for now.
