Morning links: Petersen press conference reminder

With the Huskies set to begin preseason camp on Monday, it's also time to crank back up with our in-season morning links post. Today's will be brief, but UW (and the rest of the Pac-12) will be full-go from this week on, meaning our presence on this blog will be, too.

--- First, a reminder that coach Chris Petersen will hold a press conference today at 1 p.m. to preview fall camp. A few players are also expected to attend. We'll pass along any news or notes that result from that.
