The nightly news

While reading through some stories this evening, I noticed I didn't post anything today of interest to Husky fans.

No, I don't have a WSU bias. I just didn't find all that much I thought you would be interested in. Now I have.

It come from Bob Condotta's blog on the Seattle Times site. In his last post today, he summarizes the injuries the Husky have suffered so far, and surmises those injuries aren't all that deadly to the UW hopes.

There was also something I overlooked this morning. Art Thiel also had an insightful piece on Jake Locker and the pressure on his 18-year-old shoulders. My favorite line from Thiel about Locker: " Expectations hang on him like Christmas ornaments."

Enough Husky crud. Let's get back to teams that really matter. (Before you start to e-mail or write nasty comments, that was a joke. Whether you thought it was funny or not, it wasn't meant to be taken seriously.) According to ESPN, the team that will represent the Pac-10 in the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl: Washington State University. Ya, the Cougs. You can find a rundown of the ESPN bowl predictions here.
