Media Day musings

The Huskies held their annual media day for local reporters today and we’ll have a full report in Wednesday’s paper. But here are a few tidbits for now.
• Lorenzo Romar says he has no trouble with where his team is ranked — or rather, not ranked — in national polls. UW was 28th in the ESPN/USA Today coaches poll released last week, behind three Pac-10 teams that were ranked — Arizona, Stanford and UCLA. “I have no problem with that,” he said. “The No. 1 seed is over. This is a whole different group. If we would have been in the top 15, that would have been a surprise to me.”
• Romar said he thinks UW’s schedule, which features 10 of its 11 non-conference games at home, is appropriate for this year’s team considering its youth. “It would have been really rough to have the same schedule that last year’s team had this year,” he said. “Early on, I think it’s good to have a lot of home games.”
• Asked about the rotation, Romar said he could go 10 deep. That would theoretically include all of the team’s freshmen, though there still seems a chance that Joe Wolfinger could redshirt.
• Forward Zach Johnson had another knee surgery last week, the fourth of his career. This was on his left knee to repair a second ACL injury to that knee. Johnson said he hopes to rehab this season and come back next year.
• Mike Jensen is out of his sling and can take a few shots though he won’t likely be cleared to begin any real work for another couple of weeks. He is on track to return in late December, likely for a game Dec. 23 against Lehigh.
• There are fewer than 700 season tickets available. But that doesn’t include the three games UW will play in the Black Coaches Association Classic at Hec Ed on Nov. 13-15. School officials said there are “plenty of tickets available for that.”
• School officials also said that the school will soon announce some changes to its TV package for this season that will result in some changes in game times. That should happen by the end of the week.
