Happy (or otherwise, who knows) Tuesday! As a reminder, you can follow us at Twitter here, or myself (for dumb stuff) and Andrew (a dog in a luchador mask), Max and Rob (football and other stuff), or Aaron (recruiting shenanigans).

- Christian Caple continues his countdown of Washington’s most important players at #4 with a certain defensive specimen. (In case you missed it, he talks Cade Otton at #4 a few days ago.)

- All FBS schools have been cleared to begin football games one week early (AKA week 0) in order to give more scheduling flexibility.
