We’ll get to part II of the Montlake Madness UW Husky Hoops Fan Poll early this week. Until then, you’ve still got time to vote in part I here: /

A few of you emailed suggesting that I change the countdown on the left to reflect the regular season opener on November 13 against Wright State, instead of the exhibition game against Central Washington on the 4th. Your voices have been heard — thanks for the suggestion.

A few links and clips:

Unsurprisingly, Jon Brockman’s new coach has good things to say about him already.

Friends of Montlake Madness, Magglio (of Apples & Moustaches, my favorite blog) and Tyler, sent along this clip of Tony Wroten, the Garfield point guard who will play his junior season this year. We’ve already offered the highly ranked prospect a scholarship, although I’ve heard rumblings that he wants to play back east.  I think I can speak for all of Husky Nation when I say that I hope the word on the street is wrong. His father was a football star at UW, so hopefully that factors in come decision time. Check out this clip too (about one minute in), from his freshman year.

While we’ll sweat it out on Wroten for a while, here’s some footage (about 30 seconds in) of Desmond Simmons, who’s commited to UW for the 2010/11 season.

More Dickie V.: A few weeks ago, he named his 2009 All-Rolls-Royce-Team. And, hey baby! Quincy and I.T. get honorable mentions.

And, speaking of Quincy, here’s one of my favorite sequences from last year’s special season. The only thing that would’ve made it better is if Q-Pon had dropped trow and taken a whiz on the Cougs logo at midcourt immediately following the dunk.

Hey, thanks for coming!
