Blimey, Jackson. You holding out on me? I know you got the Dots. Hand 'em over or I'll be shoving 'em so far down your throat that you'll be sitting on them for the next week, if ya' know what I mean.
- Per the norm, we start with football. With the BYE week now past, Sark made a point to call out the progress made by some of the younger players during last week's practices. The duo of young pass rushers, JoJo Mathis and Marcus Farria, are both rotational players who earned specific praise. It is hard to not watch these two guys when they are in there as they both remind me of Daniel Te'o-Nesheim in the way their motors just stay revved. If these guys stay healty, the future of the Huskies pass rush is bright.
- Bishop Sankey hasn't gotten much pub in the last week, but don't think for a second that the Colorado Buffaloes are not locked in on figuring out how to stop the Pac 12's premier ball carrier. This is not one of the better rush defenses in the Pac 12, but they are fresh off a game in which they completely stood up UCLA's rushing offense, so we shall see what they can dial up.
- Tim Booth reports that the Huskies are as healthy as they could hope to be as they move into the final stretch of their still-hoped-for breakout 2013 season.
- The Huskies Men's Basketball team is about to kickoff their 2013-2014 season. Percy Allen focuses in on C.J. Wilcox who has explicitly claimed the leadership mantle of this team and who, as you could imagine, is intent on finishing his Husky career in the NCAA Tournament.
- The MBB opens their season on Sunday and Romar has decided on his starting 5. Interestingly, Romar is going with two PG's in a lineup philsophy reminiscent of they days of yore. Your Husky starting 5: Andrew Andrews, Nigel Williams-Goss, Jernard Jarreau, C.J Wilcox and Perris Blackwell.
- On the Women's Basketball side, Jayda Evans has a great preview of the team with a particular focus on the team's best player, Jazmine Davis.
- The Women's Golf team is kicking off its season in grand fashion with an early lead over both #1 UCLA and #2 USC in the Pac 12 Preview. The Huskies ended up finishing the tournament in 3rd place, but looked good in doing so as they begin their quest for another excellent season.
- Finally, the football team isn't the only program with the Buffs on the brain. The #3 Husky Women's Volleyball team crushed Colorado to keep their run towards the national title well on track.
Question of the Day
Even accounting for Kasen Williams, the Huskies Football team is as healthy as it has been in any season under Steve Sarkisian up to this point. I noted yesterday that I expect the Huskies to leverage this good fortune into an undefeated run to close out the regular season. What are your realistic expectations for our final four games?
