Joe McCarthy, Richard Nixon, Studebaker, television, North Korea, South Korea, Marilyn Monroe, Ryan started the fire!
(First of all, apologies for the lack of Dots lately, folks. Apparently, there's this thing called "work" that I have to do every now and then. Who knew?)
- If there's one thing I know beyond a shadow of a doubt, it's that old-school Husky fans love defense. New DC Pete Kwiatkowski knows how to speak their language.

- Lindsay Schnell takes a look at what Shaq Thompson mixing it up with the RBs could mean for the Husky backfield this season.
- 1090 The Fan's Anthony Dion profiles Jeff Lindquist, saying that the redshirt sophomore quarterback realizes that he will never have a better opportunity than now to seize Washington's starting job. Gregg Bell also gives some attention to the pride of Mercer Island.
Another player whom Bell expects to take the next step toward superstar territory is John Ross.
Bishop Sankey appeared on NFL AM with Terrell Davis and Chris Wyche to talk about how he's prepared himself for the NFL since the conclusion of his collegiate career. (If anyone can figure out how to embed this, let me know, because I can't for the life of me figure it out.)

- Christian Caple begins the gruesome task of dissecting just how the men's basketball season went so, so wrong.
- We've had such a run of bad men's basketball news the last few weeks, maybe it's time for a feel-good story. Gregg Bell gives us one by examining the legacy of Washington's outgoing seniors.

Question of the Day
How do you feel about the Husky men's basketball team staying home for the first time in the better part of a decade? We've had enough time since the Pac-12 tournament ended to begin to digest what this season means for the program in general and Lorenzo Romar in particular, and the early returns aren't pretty. With the knowledge that Romar is absolutely going to be the coach of the Dawgs in 2015, what changes, if any, do you think need to be made to the program this offseason?
