It’s Monday Dawg fans, and welcome to today’s Dots.

The Huskies-minus-Donovan are going to have to fix an offense that, if you take away the one, long TD drive (essentially the Dawgs’ only TD drive of the entire game) gained 11 yards in the 2nd half. That becomes 1 yard when you factor in the punt-snap-safety. Ignoring Carson Bruener’s INT that put the ball on the Oregon 6-yd line, the Huskies started each half with three consecutive three-and-out’s. Does that sound like a team that makes halftime adjustments? Will this change under Junior Adams? We’re about to find out...

Now that Donovan’s gone, can we talk about a defense that seems just as unwilling to mix up its schemes as Donovan’s offense was?

  • I’ll be so bold to say that nary a Husky fan is bemoaning yesterday’s dismissal of Jon Donovan. The subject of whether or not to keep Jimmy Lake is perhaps more divisive, although those who’ve wanted Jimmy Lake fired since week 1 have been yelling the loudest - as is always the case.

    Donovan was the real problem. Jimmy deserves another year to turn things around.

  • How can you not love this guy?
  • “Husky Offensive Firepower”... such an unfamiliar phrase lately...

Go Dawgs!!
