If you want to keep up-to-date with news concerning Washington Huskies athletics all in one easy-to-digest format, follow the official UW Dawg Pound Twitter account and subscribe to Ryan Priest’s lists of UW’s beat reporters, Washington athletes, Washington coaches, and Washington athletics prospects. Sorry for the lack of updates the last 2 days. To the Dots!

Football Dots

  • Although this phrase may make a lot of people who watched the difference in the Falcons between this year and last cringe, Bush Hamdan says he learned a lot from Steve Sarkisian during their season together in Atlanta.
  • Larry Stone at the Seattle Times writes that Jake Browning is the most under-appreciated member of the Husky team and a quick perusal of certain commenters’ opinions seem to back Larry up on that assertion.
  • The TNT examines whether Aaron Fuller might be able to fill in for Dante Pettis as the new #1 WR for the Huskies.
  • Benning Potoa’e has been trying to cut fast food out of his diet in order to be in better shape for this season.
  • The Dawgman guys have a podcast up going into detail on Monday’s practice session plus some recruiting information.
  • They also covered ($) Dante Pettis’s personal pro day on Monday including some video and an interview with Dante.
  • The Husky social media staff understands that Fortnite is the latest gaming craze and that the best way to appeal to potential recruits is to make it seem like Coach Pete understands what the heck it is:

Basketball Dots

  • Jon Rothstein has the Huskies as the #22 team in the country in his way too early 2019 top-25 rankings. That is 2nd in the conference behind Oregon. It’s going to be another down year for the Pac-12 with Arizona’s slide.
  • Vegas seemingly disagrees with that opinion (although this is based on what Vegas thinks the public thinks rather than what Vegas actually thinks. Got it?)

Other Dots

  • Ryan Clark at the Tacoma News Tribune writes about Jen Cohen’s efforts to raise mental health awareness with UW student athletes following the tragedy of WSU’s Ryan Hilinski taking his own life back in January.
  • Finally, a very humble person got evidence of his long-held theory that he’s better than the rest of us with a victory in this year’s UWDP Tournament Pick’em. He has now tied me in overall victories. Well done. Take your 50 comment victory lap.
