- Coach Pete makes it official:
- Here’s Adam Jude’s story on the hire from the Seattle Times.
- Christian Caple at The Athletic provided his thoughts as well. Is this hire too close to home?

Athlon’s 2019 Breakout Players:— WestCoastCFB (@WestcoastCfb) January 17, 2019
Salvon Ahmed - UW
Francis Bernard - Utah
Max Borghi - WSU
Palaie Gaoteote - USC
John Hightower - Boise St
Penei Sewell - Oregon
- The latest musings from Jon Wilner include his most recent podcast with UW alum and media strategy expert AJ Maestas. Really interesting stuff and a good perspective on the state of the league’s media right now.
- Feels somewhat under reported, but the Huskies have 998 wins inside Hec Ed Pavilion - most by any team in their current arena. They would be the first team in the NCAA with 1000 wins. Beating Stanford tonight makes it 999.
- After an up and down non-conference schedule, the Huskies are looking good at 3-0 in Pac-12 play. They have a chance at a great start tonight by beating Stanford.
- Here’s the game preview from Percy Allen, focusing on the Huskies defense against Seattle native Daejon Davis, which will be a key match up.
- Coach Hop is definitely bringing the New York connection to Seattle. This story from Mason Kelly focuses on Hameir Wright’s journey from NY to Seattle.
- It’s David Crisp’s senior year, and he’s on a mission.
