There are three things that a man should do every day. Dots are not one of them. Yet.
- Mark Schlaback has the Huskies in his top 25. Slots 19 through 24, where the Dawgs fall, are made up of a fascinating mix of teams. It's also mind boggling to think that UW is going to get a stretch of six games where they will play four of the top 12 teams on this list.
- Ted Miller assesses his conference power rankings for May. It feels as good as one could expect. I have to say, I really do not understand why everyone is placing USC ahead of Oregon. In my mind, Oregon is the class of the Pac 12 this season and I'm not sure it is even all that close. There seems to be an odd dynamic of media members sucking in each others exhaust when it comes to USC. I've also got a problem with Utah at #4. I think Cal and UW are both better/deeper. We'll see about WSU at #8. That also seems like a stretch.
- More from Ted: he calls UW's 9/27 matchup with Stanford a "measuring stick" game and one that is likely to determine the pecking order behind Oregon in the Pac 12 North.
- By the way, Keith Price is tweeting.
- UW target Johnny Stanton talks about the Elite 11 and comparisons to Tim Tebow. The regionals were last night. No surprise that Max Browne walked away with the invite.
- After a very quiet season with the Milwaukee Bucks, the Brockness Monster has been sighted. And he's wearing purple.
- A report card on Isaiah Thomas and his freshman campaign with the Kings. I didn't realize that IT was a former "Huskie".
- It's always hard to read the tea leaves, but there seems to be some momentum brewing for Terrence Ross to the Dallas Mavericks.
- The Men's Golf team had a huge day yesterday in claiming the lead in the NCAA regionals. They came from 7 shots down to end the day 4 up going into today's final day. Good luck Dawgs!
- The Husky Ladies found a little swagger (swagga?) and pulled a first round upset of Harvard. Something about that just doesn't sound right. Their second round matchup with #23 Texas Tech, who advanced by beating Maryland, will be played today. This is group-play style elimination tournament. As such, the loser of our game can still advance by winning the "loser's bracket" game - in this case, against the winner of the Harvard/Maryland matchup. Good luck Lady Dawgs!
