A few links to pass along on Super Sunday — and by the way, I’ll call it 49ers 27, Ravens 21.
— Dashon Goldson is the lone Husky in today’s game, and the first since Mark Brunell played for the Saints against the Colts in 2010. Speaking of Goldson, here’s a story on his new condo in southern California. Seeing this story reminded me that during his UW career, Goldson once said that if football didn’t work out, he wanted to be a real estate agent.
— Speaking of Goldson, a few people have remarked this week that they don’t remember much about his UW career. So here are his final UW stats, showing he was a three-year starter from 2004-06. As noted, he was hampered quite a bit his last year by a high ankle sprain. He also suffered a concussion in the 26-20 loss at USC that was the turning point of that season — and maybe of the Tyrone Willingham era. UW was 4-1 going into that game, which was the one where the Huskies had the ball at the 15-yard line but couldn’t get a final play off. Goldson was probably playing at an all-conference level prior to that game and the injuries he suffered that week and then in following games.
— The Tacoma News Tribune published its annual Western 100 list today of the top 100 recruits on the West Coast. Looks like 13 Huskies made the list, with a few other uncommitted players still deciding.
—Also out today is the Parade Magazina All-American Team. Troy Williams made honorable mention.
— 247Sports offers this breakdown of UW’s class.
— Rivals.com has updated its list of predictions for the top uncommitted players.
— Interesting look at recruiting here from the Tulsa World.
