Happy-ish Tuesday. As a reminder, you can follow us on Twitter here, or Max and Rob for general UW stuff and then some, Coach B for his ‘croot and on-field takes, Aaron for recruiting, or Andrew for a dog in a luchador mask and me for whatever stupid crap I tweet about.
To the dots!
- Mike Vorel talks about the Pac-12 and B1G’s decisions and the medical experts’ thoughts, including this from the Utah physician:
- Our frienemies at Addicted to Quack had me on their Quack 12 Podcast again to preview Washington, although this was recorded in two parts between six and two weeks ago when we were at least a little bit hopeful for a season happening.
- 247Sports has a look at what some of the top recruits in the western states are planning, with many of their high school seasons so disrupted.
UW offered a big time local class of 2023 athlete (primarily OLB/TE) and Freshman All-American, Jayden Wayne:

And some video of Coach Lake extending the offer:

Relevant, even if this instance isn’t the Pac-12:
Last night, the Big Ten began hypothetically discussing what teams would do in the fall *if* the season got moved to the spring. It was contentious, as the bigger programs still want to play this fall. It marked one of the first hypothetical conversations about this topic.— Pete Thamel (@PeteThamel) August 11, 2020
Do good things, don’t do bad things, and bow down to Washington.
