Happy Wednesday, everyone.
- ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. has UW junior cornerback Marcus Peters on his “way-too-early” Big Board for the 2015 NFL draft. Kiper is “also considering” UW junior linebacker/all-around stud Shaq Thompson as a first-rounder. As I wrote last week, I think Danny Shelton will get some consideration as a first-rounder (and maybe Hau’oli Kikaha, too).
- UW’s Scott Woodward (athletic director of the year) and Husky Stadium (facility of the year) are both up for awards at tonight’s Sports Business Daily event.
- UW senior center Mike Criste was named this week to the watch list for the Rimington Trophy, awarded to the nation’s top center. Criste started every game for the Huskies last season and earned all-Pac-12 honorable mention.
- Nice read from Pac-12 Networks’ Yogi Roth on the changing culture of college football locker rooms.
- Some cool stories on how longtime UW women’s golf coach Mary Lou Mulflur assembled this team that’s competing in the NCAA tournament this week.
