Schedule update, other notes

A few quick notes that will hopefully answer some of the questions posed recently:
— The official, final schedule should be released sometime next week, possibly early in the week. The Huskies are close to an agreement to fill one last opening for a home game in the non-conference schedule (it won’t be a big name) and are also waiting to hear from the Pac-10 on a few changes to the conference slate. Specifically, the order of the teams for a few of the home conference weekends could be switched for TV purposes and the date of a game could be changed from the tentative schedule that has been on the Pac-10’s website.
— The Huskies will begin practice late next week for the trip to Greece. To make clear to those who have asked, the incoming freshmen are not allowed to participate by NCAA rules and cannot practice. It’s possible they may not even be around since it would be a good chance for them to go home for a little while before the start of school. The NCAA does not allow freshmen to participate in such trips to eliminate their use as a possible inducement in recruiting.
— The Huskies hope Joe Wolfinger will be able to participate fully in the games in Greece. But word is that he has yet to be cleared to play five-on-five so just how ready he will be is uncertain. As we’ve written here a few times, the Greece trip figures to be a real telltale sign of where Wolfinger is on his recovery and how much is realistic to expect from him this season.
