- Dawgman lists the updated weights for every Husky football player and kindly does the math for you. Jesse Sosebee and Henry Bainivalu each added 21 pounds, while Hunter Bryant is down 21 pounds.
- Adam Jude has the full transcript and video of Chris Petersen’s press conference yesterday. Wearing what appears to be some sort of Hawaiian Husky shirt, the coach touched on Salvon Ahmed, Joe Tryon, the new redshirt rule, and the kicking game.
- Chris Fetters focuses on part of the press conference where Petersen is asked a few questions about the “win at all costs” philosophy in college football. Unsurprisingly, that’s not what he teaches.
- Jude breaks down the tight end position for the Dawgs, who will be led by senior Drew Sample. Hunter Bryant will miss most if not all of the 2018 season, but there is a lot of talent at this position.
- Jude also counts down 10 reasons why the Huskies will have the season optimists are predicting.
- ICYMI, the Huskies are ranked #6 in the coaches poll. USA today has a blurb on each team in the Top 25, and says the Dawgs are a playoff contender while throwing a little shade on the Pac-12.
