- Jon Wilner ventures inland to profile Steve Sarkisian’s Texas team. He points out that Sark’s West Coast ties could lead to the Horns reaching further out of state in recruiting at the expense of teams like USC and UW.
- On the subject of recruits not coming to UW, the Huskies appear to have made the right decision to move on from Bellevue’s Ayden Hector. The standout DB landed at WSU after allegations of inappropriate behavior in high school. After a solid freshman season, he has been suspended for minor in possession and possessing a fake ID.
- Christian Caple examines another method of player acquisition, the expanding transfer portal. Jimmy Lake has expressed his dissatisfaction with players hopping between programs, but has recognized that it’s now an essential part of team building and has shown that he knows how to play the game this winter.
- The Seattle Times shined a spotlight a UW sport that doesn’t get much attention. Women’s Cross-Country was postponed from a fall to a spring schedule due to the pandemic, but the team is now off and running (I refuse to apologize for this pun).
- The Women’s Basketball team has struggled to a 5-11 record, but they have a chance to finish on a high note. They host Utah and Colorado this weekend in their last homestand of the season.
