A little Hau'oli, a little Arizona and a shoutout to Isaiah Thomas. These Dots are of the "can't miss' variety.

Dots - All Shapes and Sizes


  • The theme of this week around the blogosphere is the irrepressible Hau'oli Kikaha (formerly Hau'oli Jamora). Hau'oli is very much cut from the mold of Husky great Daniel Teo-Nesheim and captured the hearts and minds of UW fans everywhere with his infectious enthusiasm for live and his inexhaustable motor as a true freshman pass rusher. Over the first three games, Hau'oli has been as noticeable as any player on our defensive front given that the motor is still there and he has shifted into a variety of positions. The young man has been through the grinder with two ACL injuries, but he is back and having as much impact as anybody. I'm glad to see him getting his due.

    1. The first Hau'oli dot is the latest in Gregg Bell's "Unleashed" series. This qualifies as another "must-read" pieced on the life and times of one of our favorite Huskies.

    2. Adam Jude also took on the subject of Hau'oli and wrote what I think is the best piece that he has produced since taking over as the Husky Beat Writer this past summer. This article almost makes me want to pay for access to the site. It is excellent work.

    Question of the Day

    Since Hau'oli is the theme of the day, let's focus are QOD on the Huskies' Defensive Line. Last season we struggled against the rush with zone-read teams and in generating a pass rush against just about anybody. How do you feel about what you've seen from this year's D-Line?
