Afternoon links: More love for UW’s Bishop Sankey

Bishop Sankey is the first UW player to crack this list of the top 25 players in the Pac-12. It’ll be interesting to see if the fine gents at the ESPN blog have selected any other Huskies for that list as it unfolds over the next two weeks. Curiously, no one from UW was on their list after the 2012 season.

— With negotiations at an impasse, the Pac-12 has ramped up its campaign against DirecTV.

— Here, again, is my story from today’s paper on UW’s “nasty” offensive line.

— Fife lineman Kaleb McGary was one of a handful of recruits on hand for Saturday night’s practice at Husky Stadium. He talked about his visit with the Dawgman dudes.

— Hey, no more trough urinals at Husky Stadium. Yi-pee! (Sorry, couldn’t resist.)

— Elsewhere, Lane Kiffin says freshman Max Browne of Sammamish has been ruled out of the running for USC’s starting QB job.

— At Arizona, Rich Rodriguez isn’t thrilled with the Wildcats’ offense so far. (It’s a long ways out yet, but Arizona’s early-season uncertainty at quarterback, in particular, could bode well for UW. I’ve said before that that Pac-12 opener at Husky Stadium is, on paper, the most important game of the season for the Huskies.)

Scheduling note: Today is UW’s second two-a-day, and the second practice is open to the media, starting at 6:15 p.m. I’ll post an update after that, and Percy will have a feature story on middle linebacker John Timu ready to post this evening, too.
