A Dawg start to the day

Our first posts today have to do with UW opening football camp yesterday. We’ll get into the Cougs and others – wasn’t the Mariners’ game last night fun to watch? Felix was impressive – but for now let’s put our attention on the Dawgs.

John Blanchette’s column from Seattle focused on the optimism the Husky fans are showing, even though UW is coming off some awful years – and is picked to finish last in the Pac-10.

One thing about Tyrone Willingham: He believes in keeping his privacy - or at least his team’s privacy. The UW coach closes every practice other than the first one, so the notes in the Seattle Times on Bob Condotta’s UW football blog for are the only ones you’ll see this year with anything from practice.

Condotta also did two stories from the first day, including this overview of the first day. The second is a notebook. The lead note is about, guess who, Jake Locker, who seems to be the biggest Husky recruit since Hugh McElhenny.

You can find Ted Miller’s Husky story in the PI here. Molly Yanity’s look at, who else, Jake Locker leads the notebook, and her camp story is here.

The Tacoma News Tribune’s Don Ruiz started with the players UW doesn’t have in his story, before getting into other stuff. That’s the same focus Mike Allende of Everett had with his notebook, though his camp story was about the optimism everyone was showing.
