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.
