Yeah the hippies all go there
’Cause they want to be seen
It’s like a room full of Dots
It’s like a psychedelic dream
- Spring practice is nigh, so we can start to piece together the prospective strengths and weaknesses of the 2021 squad. Mike Vorel looks at the defensive line as the major question mark on that side of the ball. From Danny Shelton to Elijah Qualls to Vita Vea to Greg Gaines to Levi Onwuzurike, the interior defensive line has been an embarrassment of riches for the last decade. The talent is on the roster to continue that lineage, but the performance did not match in 2020. Who, if anyone, will get to the next level?
- Vorel also counts down the 10 newcomers most likely to make an immediate impact. With an influx of transfers, there are more players on both sides of the ball who could make a difference in their first season than we are used to seeing.
- It’s the time of year when we’re so starved for new information that we read whole articles about updated player heights and weights. Speaking of starving, check out Ulumoo Ale’s updated weight.
- A former Husky made his hard-earned return to the NBA last night. Isaiah Thomas didn’t have the most efficient night in his New Orleans debut, but after the health problems he has overcome, getting on the court is an accomplishment of its own. He told the Seattle Times that he’s “102%.”
- On the subject of basketball opportunities, Hameir Wright joined Noah Dickerson on his podcast and had some complaints about his time at UW. Of all the players who could have legitimate gripes with their UW tenures, he is not the one I would have expected. Nonetheless, he worked incredibly hard in Seattle and I hope the best for him in his future endeavors.
#Michigan sophomore transfer WR Giles Jackson (@gilesjackson05) had a Zoom meeting with Washington on Monday and he came away impressed with the plan the Husky coaches have for him.— Lars Hanson (@LarsHanson) April 7, 2021
