Football Dots

  • Sidney Jones has received his new threads, and some good news regarding his contract.
  • Darrell Daniels is making some waves in Indianapolis after signing with the Colts as an undrafted free agent.
  • Likewise, Jake Eldrenkamp appears to be squarely in the mix for playing time in Los Angeles.
  • Coach Pete made sure to send his thanks yesterday to the most important people in the recruiting process.

Misc. Dots

  • Washington’s baseball team made a classy gesture of appreciation yesterday in honor of Mother’s Day, and followed that performance by shutting out Arizona State 4-0.
  • More Mother’s Day love from Washington athletes.
  • ICYMI last week: Every UW athletic program exceeded the NCAA’s minimum Academic Progress Rate (APR) standard, with the football and men’s basketball programs each earning a perfect score of 1,000 for the 2015 to 2016 school year.
  • Finally, no matter where you stand on the issue of amateur athletics, I think that we can all agree that this isn’t a good look from a PR perspective.
