  • Jimmy Lake officially spoke to the media after the team’s practice for the first time in ages. He talked about the team’s bizarre circumstances and injected a modicum of normalcy by addressing the quarterback competition.

  • Other sports have shown that 2020 has been a war of attrition. Larry Stone writes that Lake’s job will be similar this year. He’ll have to navigate the the mental, physical, and psychological challenges of an unprecedented season.

  • Christian Caple has his own reactions to Lake’s public comments. It will be music to the ears of some dubious Dawg devotees to hear Lake pledge to get his most talented freshmen on the field earlier.

  • Is a single Zoom call really this newsworthy? After months in the football desert, perhaps. 247 has its own summary of Lake’s comments.

  • ESPN’s update on the Pac-12 includes Lake assertion that the team should be ready to play when the schedule says its time.
