It’s silly, no?
When a rocket ship explodes and everybody still wants to fly
But some say a man ain’t happy unless a man reads Dots
- The Huskies wrapped up their signings early for a small 2021 recruiting class. Barring any unforeseen late additions, Christian Caple has a thorough profile of the entire 15-man class. Sam Huard is the headliner, but the defensive line looks stout, as well.
- Washington made a late push for Davon Townley, an edge rusher from Minnneapolis, but he announced this morning that he will sign with Penn State.
Four-star Minneapolis outside linebacker Davon Townley just announced he'll sign with Penn State over fellow finalists Nebraska and Washington. The Huskies just offered him on Jan. 25, so would have been a surprise to see him head west.— Mike Vorel (@mikevorel) February 3, 2021
- Speaking of Sam Huard, the Burien QB faces a bizarre spring ahead. He plans to play what is left of a HS football schedule, but still enroll at UW early enough to participate in spring practices. Mike Vorel has more on Huard’s dizzying schedule.
- Jon Wilner looks ahead to the Pac-12 schedules for this coming fall. He rates the Huskies’ slate as the 9th toughest due to some opportune home games and a softer assortment of South opponents. He also circles September 11 as a key date for the conference with four Power-5 matchups, including UW @ Michigan.
- Washington has established itself as a power program in soccer. Despite three early exits for MLS, the team still looks formidable as it prepares to start its season.
- Coming off a disheartening performance against WSU, the men’s basketball team hopes to prove it was a one-off miss rather than regression to poor form. The Dawgs will face Oregon State on Thursday and Lauren Kirschman looks at what they need to do to prevent a losing streak.
- In the spirit of viewing all news through Dawg-shaped glasses, here’s an old article from The Athletic on the mentor-mentee relationship between Isaiah Stewart and Andy Jassy, who was announced Tuesday as the successor to Jeff Bezos as Amazon’s CEO.
Been writing on this since the pandemic. Many Schools aren’t in a hurry to load up on high schoolers they’ve never met in person due to pandemic when they can take a transfer.— Bud Elliott (@BudElliott3) February 3, 2021
“Why make a four-year mistake when we can take a transfer we know is decent?”https://t.co/wvHkAtWEk6
All I ask is that the Pac-12 refs are particularly bad in the new NCAA game. I need the authentic experience.— Michael Katz (@MichaelLKatz) February 2, 2021
