It’s always more fun to compile dots on the Monday after a win. I hope it’s that much more fun to read them, too.
- The Seattle Times game coverage includes lessons we learned, such as a much needed set of halftime adjustments. The Times also provides some reassuring updates on M.J. Tafisi after a terrifying injury. Larry Stone says the Huskies “unlocked” their offense in the second half. My take? The truth is somewhere in the middle. Bush Hamdan didn’t deserve to be fired at halftime, and one productive half against bad defense doesn’t solve every offensive issue.
- Christian Caple at The Athletic has his own take on the second-half turnaround. Caple also shared the feeling most fans have: it’s time for more Puka Nacua.
- In the Tacoma News Tribune, Lauren Kirschman discusses the increasing impact of talented freshman on this year’s Husky team.
- The futbol Huskies are even hotter than the football Huskies. The men’s soccer team has won seven straight, is up to #2 in the nation, and beat Oregon State to remain perfect in conference.
- In what has to be a good omen, the volleyball team rallied from an 0-2 deficit to beat Oregon. The Huskies improved to 13-3.
- The women’s soccer team also pulled out a win with a 3-2 upset of a ranked Arizona team.
- Let’s look at some Tweets.

Post game interview on the field, Eason elaborated on a vocal locker room at half. Who spoke up? Well, for one of the first times this season he made his voice heard. That had to happen.— Brock Huard (@BrockHuard) October 13, 2019
We talked about this w/Coach Petersen two weeks ago, voices had to emerge. They finally did pic.twitter.com/klKisgBqtQ
