Recapping some combine news, and the basketball team takes that all-important first step out of the gutter.

  • The streak is dead! The Pac-12 Networks has the highlights of Sunday's win over the Cougars. The Dawgs will look to win two in a row for the first time since Jan. 22 with a victory tonight over UCLA.

  • On the strength of his 35-point performance, Andrew Andrews was named the Pac-12's player of the week. Nothing sums up his performance quite like the following quotation, though.
    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Asked about 35-point game, Andrews said: &quot;I'm just glad we got the win, man. I was tired of losing."</p>&mdash; Christian Caple (@ChristianCaple) <a href="https://twitter.com/ChristianCaple/status/569715320052559872">February 23, 2015</a></blockquote><script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
  • Softy had a good interview with UW AD Scott Woodward on his Monday show.

  • Chantel Jennings spoke to Bob Gregory about what the Huskies need to accomplish on defense to compensate for the departure of key players like Danny Shelton, Hau'oli Kikaha, Shaq Thompson and Marcus Peters.

  • Kirk has a great recap of the recent NFL combine news, in case you missed it.

  • I have no idea how to embed it, so I just leave this link here to footage of Marcus Peters' 40-yard dash.

  • Rob Rang still projects three UW players to go in the first round of the NFL Draft.

  • The 2015 season opener against Boise State will be played on Friday, Sept. 4, and will air on ESPN. Kickoff time is still TBD.

  • Chris Fetters makes an interesting observation in regard to Chris Petersen's recruiting footprint.
    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>.<a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/UW?src=hash">#UW</a> laying roots in TX: 24 offers already out for 2016. From 2013-15 a total of 37 offers. Going back to 2002 Huskies offered 6 kids total.</p>&mdash; Chris Fetters (@Chris_Fetters) <a href="https://twitter.com/Chris_Fetters/status/570380932630188033">February 25, 2015</a></blockquote><script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
  • Coach Pete and Budda ran into each other somewhere other than the gridiron.
    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Out checking classes, always great when guys are early and ready to go! <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/OKG?src=hash">#OKG</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/buddabaker32">@buddabaker32</a> <a href="http://t.co/ZMDtEtxpgz">pic.twitter.com/ZMDtEtxpgz</a></p>&mdash; Coach Petersen (@CoachPeteUW) <a href="https://twitter.com/CoachPeteUW/status/570324898704285697">February 24, 2015</a></blockquote><script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
  • ESPN's Travis Haney is ranking the Power-Five head coaching gigs from worst to first. So far, Wazzu checks in at No. 62, Colorado at No. 55, and Oregon State at No. 50. Kyle Bonagura gives his own take as to why Washington State is the Pac-12's toughest job.

  • The women's golf team, currently ranked No. 4, just won its fourth tournament of the season.

  • SB Nation's own Bill Connelly poses a fun thought experiment: What would happen if college football conferences were to adopt a tiered structure?
