Good morning. I am currently some 30,000 feet above the Columbia River, sun in my eyes, a sparkling Mount St. Helens just behind me to my left and a sharp Mount Hood quickly approaching on the same side.

I am en route to Arizona early to assist Bob Condotta and Jerry Brewer with coverage of the Seahawks-Cardinals tonight. The three of us, along with photographer John Lok, will then cover the Huskies-Sun Devils on Saturday afternoon. I brought enough sunscreen for everyone.

By the way, because of the travel schedule, I won’t be able to host a live chat as usual today. Would Friday at noon work for everyone?

My story on the diminished touches for UW stars Kasen Williams and Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who aren’t complaining about the Huskies’ philosophical changes. Williams admitted, though, that he expected more at midseason:

“I definitely thought my numbers would be higher than this. Most definitely. I can’t lie,” he told me Wednesday. “But, at the end of the day, there’s still a whole ’nother half of football to play. And I think there’s still those opportunities for me to reach those opportunities where I thought I’d be.

“My job,” he added, “is to catch the ball when it comes to me, and I feel like I’ve done a good of that this year. I have to take advantage of every opportunity that comes my way, because I don’t know how many are going to come.”
