Hey you with the pretty face

Welcome to the human race

A celebration, Mr. Blue Sky’s up there waiting’

And today is the Dots we’ve waited for

  • The Pac-12 finally enetered bowl season last night and it wasn’t pretty. Texas dominated a depleted Colorado squad to give the Pac-12 its first non-conference loss of the season. Even in defeat, it was nice to see the Buffs get some national TV time as recognition for a surprisingly good season.

  • A day after the Huskies found out that several seniors would come back next year to repeat their senior seasons, the Dawgs found out where one of their former players will land. Ethan Garbers opted to transfer to UCLA after a single, red-shirt season in Seattle. Garbers was an intriguing prospect, but it’s hard to see a path to playing time sandwiched between Dylan Morris and Sam Huard. Good luck to Ethan, except when the Bruins play UW, of course.

  • You can quibble with his predictive abilities, but Todd McShay has one of the best amplified voices on the NFL Draft. As such, it could mean something that McShay has former Husky Joe Tryon as his #24 prospect in his latest Big Board update. In an era where ability to prepare players for the pros is a major selling point to recruits, I won’t complain about Tryon climbing up the board.

  • Percy Allen turns to a forgotten page in the UW history book to learn some lessons about the current state of the men’s basketball program. Allen interviewed Andy Russo, whose coaching tenure in the late-80s started with promise and went off the rails after only four seasons. If that sounds familiar to you, you’re not alone. Russo gave some encouragement and best wishes to Mike Hopkins to get out of his current rut.
