Cougs, Huskies, polls, officials banged up


The Cougs injury update can be found on Glenn Kasses' blog, and the news is not good.

The Huskies didn't come out of Saturday's Fresno State game unscathed either. Linebacker E.J. Savannah was injured, according to a note on Bob Condotta's Husky blog.

The Associated Press issued a recalculated poll Monday, after one writer discovered he sent the wrong ballot.

Speaking of mistakes, did the officials screw up the end of the Oregon/Oklahoma game? The Pac-10 conference thinks so. It suspended the crew for a week.

But the guy who is the most pissed off is the University of Oklahoma president. David Boren wants the outcome stricken from the record book because of all the blunders.

I'm all for a university president being a sports fan, but doesn't this guy have something a little more important to do? Like maybe keeping a closer eye on the basketball program and its telephone calls? Like maybe running a university? … What am I thinking? This is Oklahoma. Football is the university.

Speaking of pro football, the Seahawks will activate and play Deion Branch on Sunday against the Giants. Wide receiver is the least of the Hawks' worries right now. A tight end or two would be nice. That and other Seahawks updates can be found on Mike Sando's blog.

That's it for now. Till tomorrow.
