Like a game show contestant with a parting gift

I could not believe my eyes

  • A significant portion of the spring chatter has focused on positions that appear thin- the injury-ravaged OLBs and the transfer-depleted WRs. Mike Vorel took a look at a position where some think the depth might be excessive- running back. For a team that wants to “Run the Damn Ball,” the allocation of carries is a crucial storyline with a big impact on overall success.

  • Mark Emmert received a contract extension to remain President of the NCAA. Emmert’s tenure has been most notable for his double-talk and inconsistent application of the NCAA’s own rules. On the other hand, I’m not sure anyone could look good if their charge is to execute university presidents’ vision for college athletics.

  • 247 also looked into the Husky hybrid coaching staff coming together in Austin. Not surprisingly, Sark has glowing things to say about Coach K. Although I’m sad to see him leave, I’m fascinated to see how his kung fu works in the Big 12.

  • If, for some reason, you’re looking for a favorite Husky player for the 2021 season, you could do a lot worse than Ryan Bowman. Dan Raley from Husky Maven has a breakdown of the rags-to-riches career Bowman has had at Montlake.
