Spartans on the horizon


As always, there is more about Husky football than you could ever read in today's Puget Sound newspapers, but we've waded through them, and here are our nominees as the most interesting.

The Seattle Times, like the paper did with the Cougs today, focused on UW's opponent Saturday, San Jose State (and, also like with WSU, here is the game covered at-a-glance). The paper's UW notebook centers on the saga of linebacker Scott White, who left the team for a day, returned and earned a starting spot.

The P-I must have run its Husky season preview today, with Art Thiel doing his usual fine job, this time writing about the trials and triumphs of the UW seniors. There was also a good Ted Miller column on how much having a bad football team affects the rest of UW's athletic department.

For quick consumption, here is the P-I's preview of the defense and the offense.

It was conference call day among Pac-10 coaches, and Everett's Mike Allende summarized what they had to say on his blog (second post down). Don Ruiz of Tacoma did the same on his blog. It's fun to see how the different writers emphasized different things the coaches said.
