FROM SAN FRANCISCO — We’re here, too, and will have coverage later this afternoon from the Fight Hunger Bowl press conference at AT&T Park.
Both teams will make a visit to Alcatraz today, too, as part of the scheduled bowl-week activities. They will also practice, though media are not allowed to attend.
Until then, some links and notes to get you started on this Monday before Christmas …
— Here’s our game story from the UW men’s basketball team’s 82-70 loss to Connecticut at Hec Ed Pavilion yesterday.
— Adam Jude takes a quick look at Brigham Young, UW’s opponent this weekend.
— USC became the third school to earn a “commitment” from Gardena (Calif.) Serra quarterback Jalen Greene, who last week “committed” to Washington after he was “committed” to Boise State. Long way to go until signing day, so he could always add to that list.
— T.J. Simers takes on Steve Sarkisian as only T.J. Simers can.
— Sarkisian said he wants to bring Ed Orgeron back on staff at USC.
— Florida announced yesterday that linebackers and special teams coach Jeff Choate has left the program. There has been speculation that Choate will join Chris Petersen’s staff at Washington. Football Scoop reported the other day that Choate-to-Washington seems likely. Choate coached linebackers at Washington State in 2012, and prior to that was Petersen’s special-teams coordinator at Boise State.
