Welcome to another week of conversation starters.  We start today with football topics since the NFL regular season is just around the corner.  It’s a final week of pre-season games this week and the Seahawks have a lot of questions and not many answers.  What’s their biggest area of concern heading into the regular season?  Who has stood out to you during the pre-season?

Washington Huskies quarterback Jake Locker is one of the most talented QB’s in the country.  He’s a legit Heisman Trophy candidate and a lock to be a top pick in next year’s NFL draft.  He’s also a great teammate and all-around good guy.  The Dawgs open their season Saturday at BYU.  How do you think the Dawgs will do this year?  Who else do you follow in the Pac-10?

Oh, my eyes!!  Did you see the new field turf at Eastern Washington University?  Don’t stare too long you’ll burn your eyes.  Which is worse Boise State’s blue “smurf turf” or EWU’s red field?

Roger Clemens is in court today, facing a 6 count indictment that he lied to Congress about never using steroids or human growth hormone.  Clemens said via Twitter that he’s happy to be getting his day in court, but he could land in jail.  What do you think? Is his guilty or not and how should he have handled it differently.

Tiger Woods hasn’t won a tournament all year, but he played his best rounds of the year over the weekend.  Is he back on track after the divorce?
