Last week's top stories on the Tri-City Herald website brought an interesting blend of topics, ranging from University of Washington quarterback Jake Locker's beating against Nebraska to a West Richland man allegedly using Craigslist to sell stolen items.
The No. 1 story, written by Eric Degerman on his "Rub of the Green" blog, showed a video of Locker getting hit and the quarterback not being able to see afterward. A huge chunk of the traffic for this came from a couple of Nebraska football fan sites linking to it and discussing the December bowl game (which the Huskies ultimately won).
Here's the top five stories from last week on tricityherald.com:
1. ESPN posts chilling video of hit on Locker (2,936 page views)
