Virgil Caine is my name and I drove on the Dotsville train...

  • John Donovan has more of a say than the rest of us in who starts at QB for UW in week one, but he has about as many answers at this point. Larry Stone makes a case for each of the four primary candidates and points out that decision-making will be paramount, though not a simple skill to hone in a new offense.

  • Mike Vorel scribbled a companion piece that outlines the evolving running back room. He points out that the relative success of the running game, led by Richard Newton and Sean McGrew, will have a big impact on whoever wins the QB battle.

  • You’ve probably seen the story by now, but Florida has shut down its football program temporarily due to a severe COVID-19 outbreak. For all the (justified) calls to fire Larry Scott and overhaul the Pac-12 leadership structure, it seems like they might’ve been right to take their time on this one.

  • If you’re wondering why the Seattle Times focused so much on the offense today, it’s because John Donovan finally talked at length to the media. Dawgman has notes on Donovan’s availability.

Remember follow us here on Twitter, plus Max and Rob for a mix of Huskies and then some, Aaron and Coach B for recruiting, or Gabey and me for what I’ll charitably categorize as “miscellaneous.”
