If you want to keep up-to-date with news concerning the football program all in one easy-to-digest format, feel free to follow Ryan on twitter and to subscribe to his lists of UW's beat reporters, Washington athletes, Washington coaches, and Washington football prospects. To the Dots!
- Hey, want to feel old? No? Well too bad, Jake Locker is returning to campus for the Apple Cup to serve as the Husky Legend.
- So, even with all the angst surrounding the collapse at ASU, five out of five Pac-12 bloggers have selected the Huskies to beat Oregon State in Corvallis.
- You will never guess which inspiring, veteran running back has served as a mentor for freshman Myles Gaskin. Oh, you guessed? Yeah, it's Coop.
- I honestly find it pretty hilarious that the Pac-12 "reprimanded" UCLA linebacker Deon Hollins for his criticism of the officiating. What are the actual consequences? It's hard to imagine anything all that tangible.
- Once again, the Pac-12 Blog put together a list of all twelve depth charts and noted any major changes. Oregon State features by far the most alterations from last week's two-deeps.
- Caple has some quick notes on Husky basketball, including the observation from Romar that jet lag has had a tangible impact on practices early this week. That does not surprise me. It's one thing to complain about an early East Coast start time, but if you've ever traveled halfway around the world, it's astounding how much it can throw your body off, even if you have no athletic responsibilities.
- Caple also transcribed lots of statements from Romar. Among the interesting bits of info: Malik Dime has a 7-5 wingspan and blocks shots with his left hand, Romar considers Noah Dickerson to be the team's best low-post scorer, and the coach is far more encouraged by Murray's scoring and rebounding vs. Texas than he is concerned about the nine turnovers. Also, can we take a moment to appreciate Caple for doing such quality work covering both football and basketball?
- The UW women throttled Seattle U by a score of 96-55. Star scorer Kelsey Plum racked up 26 points, while Chantel Osahor managed 12 points and 20 rebounds to wrestle away player of the game honors. I expect good things out of this team this season!
