Happy Monday Dawg fans, and welcome to today’s Dots.
- Dan Raley from Husky Maven asks “With ZTF Close to Returning, When Will [Sav’ell] Smalls Have His Breakthrough?” Raley also lists “The Huskies’ 5 Most Satisfying Victories Over UCLA”. The most recent? A 10-7 win at Husky Stadium in 1982.
- Not to be outdone on this quiet weekend, Raley recounts how a dozen of UW’s recent transfers performed on Saturday at their current schools. Of note (though not a transfer): Billy Joe Hobert’s son Joey caught a 55-yard touchdown pass at Martin Stadium on Saturday, decked out in the crimson and grey of WSU.
- Jon Wilner assesses which Pac-12 coaches may be at different jobs next year and why.
- From Lauren Smith’s (The News Tribune) Husky Notes: “UW tight ends coach Derham Cato was injured on the sideline on a special teams play during Saturday’s game at Oregon State... Lake did not give specifics about the injury [emphasis mine], but noted it is possible it could keep Cato away from the sideline when UCLA visits.”
- The Athletic has its college football rankings, 1 to 130. UW sits at 85th, below Hawaii but definitely, definitely a few spots higher than (3-3) Kent State and (1-4) Western Kentucky.
- Acccccccentuate the positive:
