You wouldn't have known by talking to Washington interim coach Marques Tuiasosopo yesterday that one of his assistant coaches -- OK, one of Steve Sarkisian's assistant coaches -- Tosh Lupoi, is under investigation by the school for an alleged recruiting violation.
Tuiasosopo didn't have much to say about it -- and as the interim coach, I'm not sure why he would -- and didn't seem concerned with anything other than preparing for UW's bowl game. That much was expected.
Everyone else seems to be talking about it, though. We'll link our story updating that situation once it appears online. Mike Davis, the alleged middle-man quoted extensively in the original Los Angeles Times story, did not return a phone call seeking comment. UW also offered no further comment on the matter.
On to some links ...
