Happy Monday Dawg fans, and welcome to today’s Dots.
In what could’ve been considered just as bad a debacle as the opening loss to Montana, the Huskies managed to turn on the juice when they needed to. But has this team shown any improvement, now more than halfway through the season?
A come-from-behind road win in the desert should always earn at least some praise, but how often does UW need a 2nd-half comeback to overcome an opponent mired in an 18-game losing streak?
FYI: UW safety Alex Cook posted this on Instagram today, after being carted off during yesterday’s game. He was released from the hospital after having feeling in all his extremities and flew home with the team. pic.twitter.com/5GM2EEL1F8— Mike Vorel (@mikevorel) October 23, 2021
