- UW commits Sean McGrew and Daniel Bridge-Gadd were named Gatorade State Players of the Year. McGrew is a running back from California while Bridge-Gadd is a quarterback out of Arizona. Both are players that have seen their recruiting hype build in the time since their commitment to Washington.
- Speaking of UW recruits, the Times also has a nice personal look at what motivates Eastern Catholic star and UW commit Brandon Wellington in anticipation of the 3A state championship game.
- Ted Miller says it's time we start considering Stanford a national power. I can't really disagree with him now that David Shaw has the program competing for Pac-12 titles years removed from the shadow of Jim Harbaugh. There can be no real denying that this is his team now.
- Speaking of Stanford, three of five folks at the Pac-12 Blog see Shaw's team taking home the Pac-12 title over USC. Once again, can't find much to disagree with.
- It feels good to see this kind of super positive piece from David Lombardi on the future of UW football. The Huskies have been given proper credit for a solid 2015 "rebuilding" year, and now it seems even those outside the region expect the next step to be taken in 2016.
- The UW women dispatched Portland 83-65 thanks largely to 29 points from star Kelsey Plum.
