Football Dots

  • Christian Caple put out his midseason awards with the Huskies 6 games into their 12 game schedule and there aren’t a lot of bright spots.
  • Mike Vorel looks at Race Porter’s growth both as a player and a leader to become one of the key parts of this Husky team.
  • He also talks about Bookie Radley-Hiles who has undergone some unexpected adversity after transferring from Oklahoma to Washington.
  • Hugh Millen contributed to Dawgman’s report detailing a large chunk of plays from UW’s loss to UCLA from an in-depth perspective to figure out what went wrong (or occasionally right). Here’s the link to part 1 and part 2.
  • I went on Wildcat Radio to preview Friday’s game from a UW perspective for Arizona fans.
  • Our own John Sayler also answered questions for AZ Desert Swarm about where the Huskies are at heading into Friday’s game. Look for their answers to our questions later today on the site.
  • Just in time.
