She took all my money, wrecks my new car.
Now she’s with one of my good time buddies,
Readin’ Dots in some cross-town bar.
- Football dominates the headlines, even in a year with only four games, but let’s start with basketball today. The Huskies signed an out-of-nowhere recruit yesterday named Dom Penn. He’s a 3* PG and the son of Ohio State legend Scoonie Penn. Due to some unique timing, Penn could theoretically play for the Dawgs this year.
- Lauren Kirschman breaks down a difficult start to the season for the men’s hoops team in the Tacoma News-Tribune. She points out that Mike Hopkins focuses on the team’s rebounding woes, but that’s just one of many areas that need improvement.
- The women’s basketball team had its upcoming game with Arizona State postponed. The Sun Devil program is experiencing a Covid outbreak, much like the rest of the state of Arizona.
- Former Husky football player Al Worley passed away yesterday. Worley gained notoriety by intercepting a staggering 14 passes in the 1968 season, an era with far less passing than the present. I’m too young to have any Worley memories, but I’d love to hear some stories in the comments from those who have them.
- Dawgman has an update on UW’s recruiting for the 2022 class. The blog contains info on several of the top in-state recruits, including some positive news on Ryan Otton.
- Elsewhere in college football, the CFP Title Game has followed the rest of the season’s lead with Covid concerns. Despite positive tests within the Ohio State team, the game is currently scheduled to go on as planned on Monday.
