Happy Monday Dawg fans, and welcome to today’s Dots.
- There were no Woofs over the weekend following edge Lance Holtzclaw on Friday, and Fall camp is a ways away — but still some good news on the recruiting front as 2022 4-star DL Hero Kanu announced UW in his top 10 (top 9?).
- And this announcement is coming today from local 2022 4-star OL Malik Agbo:
- CBS Sports has Jimmy Lake as one of the most underrated Power 5 football coaches: “I see Lake following in the mold of fellow Pac-12 North coach David Shaw at Stanford, who has enjoyed a successful tenure after his promotion from a coordinator role” says Ben Kercheval.
- An article on NIL from Mike Vorel, with Myles Gaskin, Jake Browning, and Kelsey Plum describing their experiences making ends meet while at UW.
- As a kid who had a collection of football helmet stickers, I still love these helmet schedules. Wall-size please?
- This story covers Pac-12 rival Arizona, but being a uniform traditionalist, news that bucks the current milieu of endless uniform looks will always grab my attention.
- Shocker, this:
- Dawgman breaks down every one of ESPN’s game-by-game projections. ESPN gives the Huskies only a 4.3 chance of winning the Pac-12, and picks two games that UW is more likely to lose than win: Michigan (away) and Oregon (home).

- “Today’s news is a heavy blow for anyone that loves soccer in our community. Jimmy Gabriel was beloved in this region, and our sport would not be where it is here today without his influence.” - Sounder FC owner Adrian Hanauer
Jimmy Gabriel was a legend in Scotland, England and in Seattle.— Washington Men's Soccer (@UW_MSoccer) July 11, 2021
He gave so much to Seattle-area soccer over many years, including as an assistant coach for Washington men's and women's soccer programs.
We will miss you, Jimmy! Thank you, and rest in peace. pic.twitter.com/h1WvmVK1rq
One more thing — Dustin Poirier speaking truth Saturday night, Conor MacGregor is a dirt bag.
