- UW ace golfer, Chris Williams, has added another piece of hardware to the trophy shelf. Yesterday, Chris was awarded the 2013 Ben Hogan Award recognizing the top golfer in the NCAA. Nick Taylor is the only other Husky to have ever won this award, winning it in 2010. This is a huge honor for Williams and another sign of the surging trajectory that Matt Thurmond's program is riding.
- Interested in more golf news? PGATOUR.com is launching a new YouTube series called "Everyday. Washington Huskies." They will be launching it tomorrow, May 22nd. Thanks to the UW Athletic Department for the heads up.
- Not to be shown up by Men's Golf, the Men's Crew team captured their fourth straight Pac 12 title sweeping all but one race (losing the Men's Varsity 4 to rival Cal). This was another dominating performance by, perhaps, the most dominant program in all of college sports today. The Huskies will be the favorite in National Championships to be held in a few weeks. In related news, Senior coxswain, Seamus Labrum, won the Pac 12's Rowing Student Athlete of the Year. The Huskies are rolling. WOOF
- The UW Softball team has earned a trip to the NCAA Super Regionals after a definitive sweep of the regional #1 seed, Hawaii. The Huskies crushed Hawaii in glorious fashion with a no-hitter to move on in the tournament.
- The Husky Baseball team also got into the act, sweeping the Cougs in the Baseball version of the Apple Cup.
- It is the offseason, so just about any link goes. If you are jonesing for a 100 day fix in football, checkout the Week 1 betting lines on Saturday Blitz. The Huskies and something involving 3 points are mentioned.
- Mel Kiper Jr. has started documenting his big board for 2014. His top 25 includes a familiar name ($). This effort by Kiper kicks off a position by position analysis series including a look at his "top RBs" - and a surprising mention of Bishop Sankey.
- In a shocking piece of news, Steve Sarkisian is the highest paid employee of the state of Washington. Similarly, Larry Scott is the highest paid commissioner in college sports. Apparently, muffing the roll out of your television network does not take away from the accomplishment of setting off the greatest wave of conference expansion ever seen in college sports. Congrats, Larry! (just kidding, y'all - I do think we are luck to have Mr. Scott - but I still think he muffed the cable deals).
- A former Husky basketball player, Martin Bruenig, has found a new home. Hint, his new town rhymes with Kizzoola. Good luck, Martin.
