Monday morning notes

It’s the first Monday morning of the college football season, though as I noted the other day, it’ll be a little different schedule for the Huskies today.

UW is going to practice in the morning throughout the season this year, joining the ranks of teams such as USC and Oregon that have done that for the last year or so.

Classes, though, are not yet in session at UW so the Huskies can set their own schedule for a few more weeks. Today they are practicing in the mid-morning, which is why Steve Sarkisian’s weekly press conference — which will usually be at noon — is instead at 2 p.m.

You’ll be able to watch it on GoHuskies.com and UWTV and also listen on KJR-AM.

For now, a few links. …
