The story of the day at UW — and probably of this week — is quarterback Keith Price, who by his own admission isn’t quite the same player he was a year ago.
As detailed on the blog in earlier entries, Price met the media today and talked at length about some of his struggles. Jerry Brewer also wrote a column about Price and I also wrote this notebook that leads off with some of Steve Sarkisian’s thoughts on Price as well as a few other items.
The Times, meanwhile, is asking about Price in its nightly poll. So go ahead and chime in with your own view.
