Bowl Season Progresses While Basketball Stalls Out

NCAA Basketball: Seattle at Washington Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

And if California slides into the ocean

Like the mystics and statistics say it will

I predict these Dots will be standing until I pay my bill

  • The Dawgs were set to finally resume their men’s basketball season and commence conference play against the Cougars tonight. Unfortunately, that game has been postponed due to continued Covid issues within the WSU program. Washington is set to finally start Pac-12 play on January 3rd against Arizona.

  • Speaking of Arizona, Jon Wilner names the Wildcats as one of the two conference favorites in his Pac-12 basketball preview, along with UCLA. He puts USC a notch below, but with an undefeated record, an inside-outside offensive and defensive threat, and a top-10 ranking, I’d say the Trojans belong in that discussion.

  • While the Husky football team is even further from playing, the news keeps coming. Scott Eklund looks at some 2022 in-state prospects and where they stand with the new coaching staff. On a positive note, Eklund thinks the Dawgs are still the favorites for Vega Ioane, who decommitted during the coaching transition.

  • As far as we know, the Alamo Bowl between Oregon and Oklahoma will go down tonight. Tom Fornelli previews that game and several of the other upcoming bowls. Both teams have interim coaching staffs and lots of key players out of the lineup. The Sooners are favored, but the unknowns mean the game could go many different ways.

  • The Dawgs extended an offer to a defensive line transfer from Hawaii. Another Rainbow defender has caught the eye of the UW defense. In case you’re wondering, Hawaii beat Fresno last year and forced Jake Haener into a season-high four interceptions.
