I didn’t mean to take up all your sweet Dots
I’ll give it right back to ya one of these days
I said, I didn’t mean to take up all your sweet Dots
I’ll give it right back one of these days, oh yeah
If I don’t meet you no more in this world
Then I’ll meet you in the next one
And don’t be late
Don’t be late
- Mike Vorel looks at UW’s recruiting trajectory under Jimmy Lake and sees storm clouds ahead. Between in-state losses, a sharp uptick in de-commits, and an overall decline in the aggregate class quality, the talent that has entered under Lake does not compare well with what Chris Petersen brought in. I figured this season would be a turning point for Lake, for better or worse, where recruits could see the program with his stamp on it. So far, it sure hasn’t been for better.
- On a more positive note, Pac-12 Women’s Basketball media day was the latest opportunity to heap praise on new UW coach Tina Langley. Coach Langley convinced Haley Van Dyke to stay at UW and added 6’9” Nancy Mulkey through the transfer portal. The combination could have the Dawgs on the upswing after a fallow stretch.
- Christian Caple tackled a mountain of reader questions in his latest Husky mailbag for The Athletic. Depressingly, Caple convinced me that I’m a sucker for continuing to buy season tickets. I guess the best reason to buy them might be to say that you’re a season ticket holder.
- Also from The Athletic, a group of coaches, ADs, and agents ranked the toughest jobs in college football. A couple of Pac-12 North programs showed up on the list of toughest Power 5 jobs.
- Lots of familiar names show up on Dawgman’s list of the 10 highest-rated recruits on the UCLA roster. UW recruited most of the top players, and actually signed three of UCLA’s top 10.
