I'll show you my dots, but only if you show me yours.
- This was raised in the FanShots already, but Johri Fogerson has concluded his Husky career. Thanks, Johri, for being a Dawg. I wish the injuries hadn't slowed you down.
- Jim Weber thinks that Keith Price has the "it factor" and calls him the next RGIII. He likes KP as a dark horse Heisman candidate. You guys all know that I feel KP is getting a bit overhyped, but it still is fun for such a great guy to get such attention.
- Ryan Divish has all the details of the Pac 12 North coaches interviews on the conference conference call (how often do you get to repeat those two words back to back in a sentence and actually have it make sense?). He also has a link to the transcript of Steve Sarkisian's interview. The best news from my POV was that Deontae, Jamora and Tanigawa all look on track for fall.
- An Eagles insider thinks that Chris Polk is positioned well to win the backup RB job in Philly.
- This Steeler blog has a nice write up on the new-look D and how Alameda Ta'amu fits in.
- Speaking of Husky Alum, here is an in-depth update on Jake Locker and his battle to earn the job in Nashville. Congratulations to Jake who is expecting the birth of his first child, a baby girl, this year.
- The inimitable Bob Condotta has his first Mailbag of May. Why can't the Seahawks have such an effective blogger representing them on the Times?
- Ted Miller defends his lack of enthusiasm on the Huskies in his mailbag. Truthfully, I've not really seen any bias towards any one team or another Ted since he went to the mothership. Do I think he tries a little hard to convince people he's not a Husky homer (even though it is clear that he isn't)...probably. But that doesn't bother me. What kills me about Ted is how he falls in love with a single notion and then overplays that notion to build hype around an issue. There have been a few instances where he has done it in the past: his love affair with Shayne Skov, his utter conviction (based on a book) that RichRod owns no accountability for what happened in Michigan, and his overboard reaction to USC's conclusion of last season (while, apparently, patently dismissing the early part of their season) come to mind recently. Regardless, he's pretty good and I'm glad we have him covering the Pac 12.
- You may have heard ... the Cougs are on 710. Good thing I live in Memphis.
- Oh, and Rich Neuheisel is back. Word is that Ty Willingham is interviewing. JK. I hope.
- Here is another dumb "coaches ranking" ... but there have been so many of them I figured I ought to link to one of them.
- The Crew teams head out for the Pac 12 championships this weekend. The Men are going for their fifth championship in the last six years and the Ladies look to get revenge on the Cal Bears who recently usurped them in the standings. This is a great time for Men's and Women's crew.
- Romar and Sark made a joint appearance at the Yakima Athletic Club. Apparently, they were both defensive.
- Could a Brandon Roy comeback be in the offing? If he wants to do it, I'm all for it.
- Tony Wroten is an enigma. So is CraziDawg ... the only difference is that CD isn't going in the first round of the upcoming NBA draft.
- Terrence Ross had a nice workout. Click through for a great recap and some video. The guy has freakish hops.
- Interesting interview from Time.com with UW recruit Jabari Parker
