The Huskies are off sleeping in their hotel beds, getting ready for their SIMULATED game day at Husky Stadium, away from the attention of everybody else.
Anyway, here is other nuggets around the Pacific-10 Conference:
ARIZONA: Gronkowski and Tutogi are sharing one of the most vital positions in the Wildcats’ offense – H-back.
ARIZONA STATE: Offensive line injuries are one of the many concerns the Sun Devils have entering 2009.
CALIFORNIA: Tedford does his own recruiting – of true freshman students arriving on campus for the first time – to come out and watch practice. One won a all-expenses trip to Minnesota.
OREGON: Touted defensive back Harris should be ready to practice Saturday. A redshirt season has not been ruled out.
OREGON STATE: Beavers are taking the same schedule as UW – no more scrimmage and a light 10:45 a.m. workout Saturday, then the rest of the weekend off.
STANFORD: Quarterbacks play well, but no Gerhart in Cardinal’s final scrimmage.
UCLA: Neuheisel is the latest to join Twitter and video blogging after finally studying how it all works.
USC: Everybody has an opinion on true frosh Barkley’s appointment to the starting throne at quarterback.
WASHINGTON STATE: Players are trying to make a late run for starting positions. The Cougars have their final scrimmage today.
