Obviously, we've reached that time of year when news won't be breaking daily out of UW football and basketball. However, there's usually something related to the sports hapening somewhere, so I'll try to shift a bit to that until fall camp begins again in early August.
The most interesting news I saw this week was Arizona State and Notre Dame agreeing to a football series including one meeting in the new stadium being built for the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington, Texas.
That sheer size and luxury of that stadium is going to make it a serious player in the nation sports scene, and my hunch is that this is only the first of many indications of that. The place also was designed to bring record crowds to future Final Fours. And there is lots of talk that this stadium could bring the Cotton Bowl into the BCS rotation, perhaps at the expense of New Orleans and the Sugar Bowl.
