It’s about time to get on a plane for Los Angeles — OK, that won’t happen for a few hours, but close enough — where Washington plays at UCLA tomorrow night. First, we have links.

Our story in today’s newspaper is about Bellevue High School alum Myles Jack, his dual-threat capabilities and his decision to play for the Bruins. Also, here are this week’s Pac-12 picks.

    NO doubt, many of us who had watched Myles play during his high school days, hung our heads when he announced UCLA. He is a Bruin and that is that; I wish him the best of fortune in his pursuit of life.
