The Pursuit Season Two Episode Three dropped yesterday. Season one was award winning and critically acclaimed, and so far, season two is just as amazing.
- The Seattle Times has an interview with Casey Paus, who would really like to not be the answer to the trivia question "Who was the QB the last time UW beat Oregon?" We agree, Casey. We agree.
- They also had a Q and A with Nick Aliotti, former Oregon Defensive Coordinator, who will be watching the game in Italy really early Sunday morning.
- Mason Kelley's weekly "The Details" interview with Coach Petersen talks about not plateauing, but instead continuing to strive towards improvement.
- Christian Caple of the News Tribune asked the Oregonian's Andrew Greif 5 questions, and apparently Chip Kelly didn't really care for rivalries.
- Dawgman has Coach Petersen's Thursday brief press meeting.
- The News Tribune's Christian Caple has a collection of quotes from Lorenzo Romar and Andrew Andrews from Pac-12 media day. It's nice to know that Romar doesn't think the 30 second shot clock will change what they do offensively at all.
Cross Country Dots?! Cross Country Dots!:
- Arguably the 4th biggest weekend for the Cross Country team is here (3rd is Pac-12 Championships, 2nd is West Regionals, and 1st is NCAA Championships) and Mason Kelley profiled three freshman women looking to make a huge impact this season, starting with today's Wisconsin Invite, arguably the most stacked regular season meet of the year.
- If you're interested, here's a preview from the USTFCCCA on the Wisconsin Invite's loaded field, where the #10 Washington Women are only the 5th highest ranked team on the course this weekend. It's also a do or die weekend for the men's team if they want to acquire valuable points to go towards acquiring an at-large bid for the NCAA Championships (because there are two automatic spots and the west region has two top five teams in Oregon and Stanford, two Goliaths of the sport.)
