  • 247 Sports has a view of the hire from the Texas side. Coach K has led overachieving defenses for years. Texas has been an underachieving program for almost as long. Could that be a match made in Horn Heaven?

  • Dawgman takes an early look at some of the candidates to replace Kwiatkowski. The decision is a fascinating one for Jimmy Lake. Does he look to preserve continuity internally or look outside? Does he try to replicate Coach K’s strategic brilliance or look for a bigger personality on the recruiting trail?

  • As the Husky basketball team continues to struggle, the Seattle Times surveyed several analysts to determine how UW fell from the conference title to these depths sho quickly. Between recruiting failures, player development shortcomings, cultural misses, and lacking execution, there are plenty of culprits.
