Between the billion hour weather delay and the subsequent end to Washington Baseball’s season, Lindsay Meggs’ boys had a rough but honorable go of things yesterday. (That being said, let’s appreciate the badassery of both the men and women Diamond Dawgs this season, with both appearing in the College World Series despite injuries and the women getting to the championship. Well played, Dawgs, well played.)
- Chris Angkico of Armchair All-Americans has his rundown of yesterday’s game and an homage to the season.
- From the Oregon State perspective, The Oregonian has a recap of the game that sent the Dawgs home.
Then, on a happier note, Washington picked up its first commitment of the 2020 class for football, with Idaho offensive linemen Gaard Memmelaar woofing.
- The Times has their response.
Also, unbeknownst to us all, he had actually posted a commitment photo on his Instagram a full ten days ago, but apparently we’re all just hella unobservant:
Then he posted this last night:
- In unrelated news, Washington Track & Field and Cross Country are making changes.
- Sports Illustrated has their top 100-61 college football players, and three Huskies make the list.
- CBS has their top quarterback rooms and guess who’s number uno?
OH HECK YES:
I wish I could take credit for this tweet, but I can’t. Something tells me it’s Ryan...
