Football Dots

  • In case you missed the practice roundup, here are practice reports from Percy Allen and our old friend Caple. Sounds like John Ross and Lavon Coleman provided the biggest offensive highlights of the day.
  • Ted Miller assembled a chart that compares average yearly conference wins to recruiting rankings in Pac-12 football to decide who over and underachieves compared to purported recruiting talent. UW just slightly underperforms, USC vastly underperforms, and both Oregon and Stanford consistently win more than mere recruiting talent would suggest.

Basketball Dots

  • Jon Wilner of the Mercury News has assembled very early projected standings for next year's Pac-12 basketball season. He has Washington set for a 10th place finish. His logic seems to be that losing Andrews/Murray/Chriss will not be offset by the addition of Fultz (and the unmentioned Timmons and Atewe) and growth from the rest of the roster.
  • Jason Mcintyre is much more bullish on the Huskies, including Washington in his own too-soon college basketball top-25. He slots Washington at 24th, citing the possibility of Chriss and Murray returning. This was published on the he either didn't do his research or he wanted to make us all sad, because Murray and Chriss are headed to the NBA.
