The Morning Haul

This is the 100th EDITION of “The Morning Haul” and I wish I could say it had more links but there just wasn’t much out there. Enjoy anyway!

RB Bishop Sankey — One of four true freshmen members of this class to play this season, rushed for 187 yards and 6.7 yards per carry and will be in the competition to replace Chris Polk in 2012.

Those anonymous online comments are more than fans blowing off steam over losing in-state recruits. They have real-life ramifications, particularly when it comes to recruiting.

I really believe that the majority of Husky fans, or any other college football fans, aren’t the ones ripping these kids on message boards and twitter. I think that those people are minority of their respective fan bases. But they are a very vocal minority – that seems to speak the loudest and speak the most often. It’s unfair that group can make the rest of logical, well-intentioned fans look bad. But I think the story needed to be written.

Upon his return from Los Angeles this morning, Arizona State coach Herb Sendek dismissed sophomore guard Keala King from the team.

Washington is significantly more talented than Utah. It’s a fact. The Utes under new head coach Larry Krystkowiak are a team in transition. With local transfers Aaron Dotson and Glen Dean sitting out this season, and five players signed to next year’s recruiting class, most of the players on the team the Huskies faced on Saturday will be gone next season.

Washington’s lead, however, was like a Slinky. Every time Utah got close, the Huskies loaded up and regained the momentum to pull away.

At least, that was how it seemed to the fans who took a Terrence Ross 3-pointer with 2:56 remaining — and two seconds of the shot clock — as a sign to leave their seats and begin the solemn march to the exits.

“Their guys just hit tough shots at the end of shot clocks,” Watkins said.
