Morning links: A good first impression for Chris Petersen

First, a poll:

And then this from Seattle Times sports editor Don Shelton, who met Chris Petersen for the first time Thursday.

He’s likeable. He’s articulate with a dry sense of humor that came out a few times – when he talked about the media (at least I think he was joking) – and when I mentioned I was a University of Idaho graduate (our rivals are his old team, Boise State). But he quickly got back to the job at hand – answering your questions.

When a question came about Don James, it hit me. He reminded me a little bit of the legendary Husky football coach. I had covered James as a young sportswriter early in his remarkable 18-year run at Washington, from 1976 until about 1984. In the fall of 1981, he would have been 49, the same age as Petersen.
