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 — although he’s no longer with the DawgPound staff — Ryan Priest still has the best damn lists of UW’s beat reporters, Washington athletes, and Washington coaches, To the Dots!
- Mike Vorel from The Seattle Times features UW tight end Jack Westover, who had a great game against Arizona. Must say though, he’s getting too much credit for Matteo Mele pushing Ahmed into the endzone (the main TV angle makes it look like Westover, but all the replays show it was mostly Mele).
- Vorel also opens his mailbag, then dives into what the UW/Oregon rivalry means to some of the Husky players.
- GoHuskies has a story on Salvon Ahmed, who sees himself as a leader both on and off the field.
- Beat writers Christian Caple and Tyson Alger from The Athletic ($) discuss the UW/Oregon game this weekend.
- The Daily takes a look at the emerging freshmen on the UW team, and talks to Peyton Henry, who is 14-14 on the season kicking field goals.
- Check out the Chris Petersen Show with Tony Castricone, where the coach praises his defense for holding an explosive Arizona offense in check.
Dawgman gets you ready for Saturday:
Matisse Thybulle was born to be an NBA sixth-man and fan favorite:
KOC and I discussed our front row seats on the Thybulle Bandwagon on today’s BS Podcast... he’s already the most destructive non-Kawhi perimeter defender in the league. It was crazy when he dropped to the 20s in June and it’s crazier now. pic.twitter.com/ti1t1t36ML— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) October 16, 2019
The 6’6” guard from Texas is leaning Kentucky...
While nearly everyone will be focused on Oregon-Washington this weekend (and rightly so), don't forget that @UW_MBB will be hosting the No. 2 player in the country for the 2020 class at the same time. His name? Cade Cunningham. https://t.co/J1MLDxRBl9 pic.twitter.com/mxxmQaOiLb— Dawgman.com (@Dawgman247) October 18, 2019
Before “The Streak,” there was “The Norm.”
