- Dear UW Football Team, Please see below as you think about UCLA. Sincerely, Marshawn Lynch
- The Huskies Football team had a picturesque victory over Colorado last weekend. The Denver Post has a beautiful picture gallery for you to peruse. 24 photos of awesomeness.
- The best game recap of the weekend goes to Gregg Bell and GoHuskies.com.
- The best play of the game was the Keith Price TD run where he bowled over Colorado S Parker Orms. I'm trying to recall a time where I saw KP run anybody over and I'm at a loss. To his credit, KP "smelled the endzone" and, like a running back, he went and got it.
- The Buffaloes' point of view on the game isn't quite as cheery as ours.
- Up next for the Huskies is the UCLA Bruins under Friday Night Lights. The Bruins had a close victory over a feisty Arizona team in Tuscon on Saturday. The player of that game, no doubt, was Bellevue's own Myles Jack who not only broke out of a mini slump on D but also was a terror on offense. Jack rushed for 120 yards and a score. While I will concede that Jack is probably the best healthy RB on the Bruins roster right now, something tells me that UW won't be as surprised as the Wildcats by any defense-on-offense package that Jim Mora may roll out on Friday.
- One thing that we know the Bruins will be rolling out on Friday? New uni's. Not bad.
- As Ben recapped last night, the Men's basketball team had a strong showing in their season opener against Cameron Dollar and his Seattle University team. Unfortunately, the Huskies appear to have lost Jernard Jarreau for an extended period. Percy Allen has the latest on that as well as some detailed game notes here.
- Some nice thoughts from an old friend:

- There are some other great sports stories percolating for Husky fans. Chief among them is the ongoing excellence of the WVB team who posted an impressive weekend sweep over the Arizona schools.
- Another highly ranked team, the Huskies #3 Men's Soccer team, needed overtime to take out a saucy Cal squad over the weekend.
- Some Husky alums are showing some spunk in the early going of the NBA season. Among them is none other than Isaiah Thomas who Chris Paul recently called "one of the premier guards in the league".
- Quincy Pondexter is really coming into his own down here in Memphis. For QPon, it is all about the hard work..
- Jake Locker, who is quickly becoming an "injury-prone" player at Tennessee, looks like he will miss the rest of the season with the dreaded Lisfranc injury. This will probably mark the end of Jake's run as the "QB of the future" for Tennessee and leave Jake in a position where he'll be in constant competition for a starting role with the Titans or any other club he may end up with in the future.
- Another Husky alum, former tight end Cam Cleeland, knows a thing or two about NFL hazing. Bob Condotta, who always knows exactly what strings to pull no matter the beat he is on, has the story.
Question of the Day
It isn't too early to start talking about UCLA. The Bruins went deep in the playbook on Saturday with two different offensive packages that involved putting several defensive players on offense, including Eddie Vanderdoes, Cassius Marsh, and Myles Jack. The installation of these packages was no doubt necessitated by the ineffectiveness of the Bruin rushing attack. Do you expect to see this package on Friday and how do you see the Huskies handling the Bruins rushing attack overall?
