Well, I had planned on passing along some notes in this space from Steve Sarkisian’s time on the first Pac-12 coaches conference call of the season.
But Sarkisian didn’t immediately get any questions and when the Pac-12 moderator informed Sarkisian of that, he hung up. So nothing new from the coach today.
But here are a few other quick things worth passing along. …
— Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, Calif., has released its official 2012 roster, and there are two pretty prominent former Huskies included — quarterback Nick Montana and running back Zach Fogerson. Montana left UW last January with the plan to play this season at a junior college (he would not have been eligible at the FBS level due to transfer rules) and then transfer to an FBS school next season, when he would have two years left.
Fogerson was forced to give up football at UW in the summer of 2011 when the school would not medically clear him due to what were referred to as “continuing concussion issues.” But it had been known he was looking at options to continue his career and he obviously has gotten medically cleared by Mt. Sac. Like Montana, he would have one year of eligibility there and would be looking to move on to an FBS school next season. Fogerson’s older brother, Johri, is playing this year at Central Washington.
Mt. Sac begins play Saturday — here is its schedule.
— Former Huskies Andru Pulu and Demitrius Bronson are listed as starters at Eastern Washington as it readies to play Idaho this week. Pulu is a starter at defensive tackle and Bronson at running back.
— CBSSports.com’s Bryan Fischer answers a question about what to expect out of UW’s defense this week.
— Cal LB Cecil Whiteside has been declared academically ineligible.
— Here’s another good source for news on LSU and weather-related issues.
— USA Today picks the 10 worst uniforms in college football this season — I’d probably vote for Wyoming’s.
More later after UW’s practice.
