Tuesday Update

I’ve been away for a couple days so here’s some updates that you may have missed, along with some new stuff:

If you didn’t see my notebook today, linebacker Scott White won the Pac-10’s Defensive Player of the Week for his effort against Arizona. White has been active all season, playing like a guy who has something to prove, and maybe he does. A lot of people questioned his commitment after he skipped practice earlier this season, and I think White also has a lot of ambition to play in the NFL next season.

Tyrone Willingham said he isn’t concerned with the kicking game and that Michael Braunstein has been consistent in practice. He also said he’s happy with the long-snapping of Danny Morovick, who has been a little off accuracy-wise but who has definitely been getting the ball back quickly.

No new injuries, as White (shoulder), Chris Stevens (asthma) and Isaiah Stanback (leg) should all be fine. E.J. Savannah (thumb) and Robert Lewis (foot) probably won’t play this week. Cornerback Dashon Goldson (ankle) said he felt good after seeing his most playing time last season.

USC coach Pete Carroll said he’s still not sure if receiver Dwayne Jarrett will play this week after missing last week with a shoulder sprain. But Carroll was quoted today as saying Jarrett felt much better. But on the Pac-10 coaches teleconference, Carroll said he still wasn’t sure if Jarrett would play.

There’s a few notebooks from the L.A.-area papers today, most of which talk about the same things. The biggest news is receiver Chris McFoy is out 4-6 weeks with a fractured shoulder. McFoy has 10 catches for 99 yards, and will be replaced by Patrick Turner or freshman Vidal Hazelton. Also, defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis (knee) is expected to return and play against Washington, which will make it even tougher to run the ball against the Trojans.

Here’s the stories:

Also, here’s a story http://cbs.sportsline.com/collegefootball/story/9701295 from CBS Sportsline about Tyrone Willingham and how he refuses to gloat about having success at Washington.

Finally, here’s how I did last week:

Oregon vs. Arizona State: What I said: Arizona State 43-28; What happened: Oregon 48-13: ASU is so much worse than I thought, and the Ducks look great.

California vs. Oregon State: What I said: California 33-30; What happened: California 41-13: Bears seem to be rolling now and OSU is just playing things out.

USC vs. Washington State: What I said: USC 44-9; What happened: USC 28-22: Good effort by the Cougs, who may be better than I thought.

Washington vs. Arizona: What I said: Washington 30-24; What happened: Washington 21-10: The Huskies are rolling and the Wildcats can’t score.

UCLA vs. Arizona: What I said: UCLA 34-28; What happened: UCLA 31-0: Wow, the Bruins really bounced back, and Stanford is just awful.

Record for the week: 4-1. Record for the season: 28-8.
