Monday night links and notes — Seferian-Jenkins named to Mackey mid-season watch list

The Huskies will be back on the field Tuesday morning. So I’ll post a few links now which may last a while. …

— Forgot to mention this earlier, but Austin Seferian-Jenkins was named on Monday to the mid-season watch list for the John Mackey Award, honoring the best tight end in the country.

He’s obviously more than deserving since his 29 catches are the most for any tight end in the country — Chris Coyle of Arizona State is next with 28, also in six games. Seferian-Jenkins is also well on pace to shattering the UW record for receptions by a tight end, which is 48 by Jerramy Stevens in 2000. In fact, with 29 ASJ is already 11th on the single-season list. He also now has 70 for his career, fourth in UW history behind Mark Bruener (95), Stevens (88) and Rod Jones (81).

— Here’s my story from Monday’s press conference, which includes a breakdown of Keith Price’s stats from last year and this year against USC, Oregon and Stanford, which are indeed rather similar. Also of note is this breakdown of the won-loss records of the FBS teams UW has played so far — which is 24-7 — and those it plays the rest of the way — 16-21.

Jerry Brewer has three likes and dislikes from the UW-USC game.

Ted Miller says the winner of the UW-Arizona game can change the trajectory of its season.

— News that Tyrone Willingham is helping with the Stanford women’s golf team, which actually has been out there for a couple of years now, made the rounds again this week after it was mentioned in a story out of the Notre Dame-Stanford game. He also remains on the board of directors for the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl.

— The Sporting News rates UW seventh in the Pac-12 this week.

— Here’s some of what Arizona head coach Rich Rodriguez and a few UA players said to the media in Tucson today. Of note is this quote from Rodriguez on UW:

“I think you have to treat them as team that is going to be ranked by the end of the season. They’ve beaten a ranked team. They’re without a doubt one of the most athletic teams in our league. (Head Coach Steve Sarkisian) and the rest of their guys are really excited, and they should be, with where they’re at right now. Keith Price is as good as any athlete. They have some of the best skilled players in the league. They have a very athletic defense. Our guys can see that on film. You can paint whatever picture you want, but when you see them on TV or on film you know they’re good.”

— And here are Arizona’s official game notes

— The Tucson Citizen has a feature on a player who will be a key for the UW defense to contain this week, Arizona running back Ka’Deem Carey.

— Arizona Daily Star columnist Greg Hansen examines why attendance is down at Arizona game.

— has this Pac-12 mid-season report.

— Athlon’s also has a mid-season Pac-12 review and also places UW eighth in its conference ratings this week.

— And here’s a Pac-12 mid-season review from, as well as an all-conference team that does not include any Huskies.

Jake Locker is likely out again this week for the Titans against Buffalo.

— The Portland Tribune reports Oregon State QB Sean Mannion could be back for the Beavers’ game at UW Oct. 27.

— Interesting take from the Salt Lake Tribune on Utah’s struggles.

Mike Leach unloaded today on WSU’s receivers after their issues with drops against Cal.

— The LA Times reviews USC at the halfway point.

— Finally, since it obviously involves Washington and has some interesting views of some of the key plays, I thought I’d pass along the video below from USC’s site. It also includes some of Lane Kiffin’s pre-game, halftime and post-game speeches:
