Good morning and happy beginning of the end of The Death Heatwave (for now).
With today’s dots, let’s start with some sweet sweet NIL updates:
The real ironic part of all this: The NCAA made this interim policy because of state laws, but schools without state laws might adopt NIL policies that are looser than those state laws.— Chris Vannini (@ChrisVannini) June 28, 2021
The state law was a recruiting advantage… until it wasn’t.
- The Athletic looks back at the 40 Pac-12 coaching hires of the 21st century. Guess who’s ranked 40th?
- They also talked to former and current college football players about the various effects of playing a longer season with more games — as will be the case with a 12-team playoff.

(This is probably telling as to how four-star running back Emeka Megwa's UW official visit last weekend went. UW will only take one running back in its 2022 class.)— Mike Vorel (@mikevorel) June 28, 2021

By the way, if you’re a gal who’s interested in playing hockey (even if you’re terrible or have never played before), hit me up about SWHC. We’re all super cool and you should join.
It's official: It's the hottest day in Seattle EVER, surpassing the record that was set...yesterday.— Paige Cornwell (@pgcornwell) June 28, 2021

Thoughts and prayers to all the people in Seattle who have landlords that when asked about the AC situation said, “oh don’t worry it never gets that hot in Seattle”— Jake Browning (@jake_browning) June 28, 2021
Do good things, don’t do bad things, and bow down to Washington.
