UPDATE: Turns out that I published Dots about 60 minutes too early.

Softy has details up on his page, too, adding that in addition to the Miles and String news, running back Ryan McDaniel is opting for medical retirement after struggling to cope with a long-bothersome knee injury.

  • Bishop Sankey was the first running back off the board, going to the Tennessee Titans with the 22nd pick of the second round. Interestingly, that's the latest that the first running back has been taken in the history of the Draft. ESPN examines what that means for the future of the position in The League. NFL Spin Zone and Pressbox Online both like Sankey's chances to immediately earn the starting tailback role in Nashville. Meanwhile, Sports Illustrated and ESPN assess Sankey's potential as a fantasy football player.
  • Gateline.com examine's the impact of a local product in Austin Seferian-Jenkins, whom Tampa Bay drafted in the second round. Meanwhile, the Chicago Tribune calls ASJ the Buc's "best value pick." Bleacher report disagrees, calling Austin one of the "biggest reaches" of the Draft's Day 2 picks.

  • The baseball team (now 37-11-1) recorded its sixth shutout of the season when the Dawgs blanked Seattle University on May 12.

  • Athlon projects Washington to be the nation's No. 24 team, and to finish third in the Pac-12 North, which is a prognostication that I know will ruffle absolutely no feathers amongst our dear readers.

  • The Salt Lake Tribune thinks that Chris Petersen is up to the task laid before him.

  • The Daily breaks down the two Huskies who were drafted, as well as the four who became undrafted free agents.

  • Former longtime assistant Chris Tormey is headed to the high school ranks.
