I’m stuck in side of Mobile with the Dots blues again.
- Let’s start Wednesday with the results of Christian Caple’s 2020 Husky Football fan survey. I always find these surveys fascinating because it gives us a glimpse into the collective psyche of the fanbase and I love to see where I diverge. For instance, a majority of respondents picked the Dawgs to finish 5-2 this year. Cowards! 7-0 or bust!
- Mike Vorel looked at five freshmen most likely to play this year. Since Sav’ell Smalls is the first five-star recruit since before Chris Peterson’s coaching tenure, it’s natural that fans are excited to see him, and Joe Tryon’s departure might open up some time for him, but is he the freshman with the most potential for impact?
- Mike Hopkins spoke to the media about the upcoming basketball season. After last year’s dismal failure down the stretch (of the season and of close games), Hopkins is embracing a needed fresh start. The roster, offense, and attitude will all look different, but the new cast will have to prove the results will follow.
- Husky super-fan and Washington native Blake Snell was dealing in Game 6 of the World Series. Then his manager took him out in the sixth inning and the Dodgers scored the three runs needed to win off the Tampa bullpen.
- Dawgman has an update on Husky DB commit Vincent Nunley. He shares that several of the DB recruits have been in contact with each other to start building team relationships early.
- A bit further away in the CFB world, Wisconsin’s thinned-out QB room won’t take the field because the game against Nebraska has been canceled due to a broader Covid outbreak.

Our #Pac12 preview series continues with #GoDucks, who are most vulnerable in the three areas that carry the greatest consequences: QB, OL and DB https://t.co/2cPyoI81mY— Jon Wilner (@wilnerhotline) October 28, 2020
Same with Pac-12. Why did it set the schedule to start Sept. 26 when it knew at the time the CA schools couldn't get on the field in August? https://t.co/5K0doZlLFl— Jon Wilner (@wilnerhotline) October 28, 2020
