The Huskies arrived last night in Syracuse, land of Jim Brown, Ernie David and Floyd Little, and so did I.
One of the odd little footnotes of UW camp the past couple of days has been Tyrone Willingham's contention that one element of playing in the Carrier Dome is that certain open doors might affect the wind currents inside.
So, it was interested to arrive in Syracuse last night just in time to watch the local news, in which the Syracuse media asked coach Greg Robinson about that. Robinson gave mostly a "huh?" answer, finally adding that he's never noticed anything like that.
However, there is one thing about the Carrier Dome that everyone seems to agree on, and that is that it is hot and humid. And that, unfortunately, could be a real issue in the game tomorrow, because it's in the '80s here now. They're predicting a "cold front" to move through today, but that's expected to bring rain and maybe even thunderstorms, but not notably lower temperatures.
Never miss a local story.
The Huskies are scheduled for a walk-though at the Dome today, but neither UW nor Syracuse plans any contact with the media, so I might not have much more to write today. However, I plan to swing by the campus today and get a look at the dome, and I'll post back is there's anything worth posting.
And finally, I'm supposed to be on KJR again today, discussing the UW opener with the Groz. However, I'm not sure if that's the usual 2:20 p.m. time or not. I'll also try to post a note on that when the time is set.
