— A little talk on UW’s chances this season in Ted Miller’s chat on the ESPN Pac-12 blog Thursday.
— ESPN’s Pac-12 blog includes two UW games in a poll on “The Games We Can’t Wait For.”
— Miller also writes about a close race in the vote on the ESPN Pac-12 blog for the most hated coach in the Pac-12 (for some reason, I think I know who’d win one if this blog conducted a similar poll).
— The ESPN guys also debate which is the best Pac-12 “trap game” of the season.
— College football pundit Matt Hinton has Keith Price and Austin Seferian-Jenkins on his All-American third team.
— Some more thoughts on Chris Polk’s chances to make the Eagles.
— Pacific Takes puts together an All-NFL team of current Pac-12 alumni. As might be expected, given UW’s lull in the last decade, there’s not a huge representation of Huskies.
— Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott calls the new SEC-Big 12 bowl alliance a “game changer.”
— Dan Wolken argues maybe it’s time for college football to “operate on its own.”
