I understand about indecision

And I don’t care if I get behind

People living in competition

All I want is to have my Dots

  • If you’re reading these dots, the odds are overwhelming that you already know that Utah will travel to Seattle to play Washington on Saturday, stepping in for Washington State due to a viral outbreak. The Seattle Times summarizes how the Huskies and the Pac-12 got the deal done.

  • Speaking of Wazzu, John Wilner pitches an idea to get the Apple Cup back on the schedule for later in the season. I’m all for schedule flexibility if it gets the rivalry game on the slate.

  • BYU entered damage control mode with head coach Kalani Sitake telling reporters, “we’re not afraid of Washington.” That’s fine, and there were legitimate reasons for BYU to balk at elements of the Washington match-up, but when you waffle after marketing yourself with the slogan of “any team, any time, any place,” people are going to point out the hypocrisy.

  • It’s not just football schedules that have been in flux. The Husky men’s basketball team has had to scramble to put together a schedule. They now have their conference dates set as we near the start of the season.
