Everything about these Dots
Was born to grow and die
- Mike Vorel covers the gamut of Husky topics in his latest mailbag. The questions come at an interesting time for the Dawgs- a couple of strong recruiting classes are coming of age and giving UW a chance to compete for a conference title while the team is also experiencing what some would consider a small recruiting slump for this year. Will on-field success foretell more commitments, or will the lack of momentum spill over into the games?
- Our beloved Danielle Lawrie didn’t start game one, but she came on in relief and the Canadian softball team got a straightforward win to open the Olympics, 4-0 over Mexico.
- The Athletic has a feature on Levi Onwuzurike that reexamines his college tape to see what he will bring to the table for the Lions. To the surprise of no UW fans, they focus on how his athleticism compensates for a lack of elite size and the productivity speaks for itself.
- For those of you who follow Washington on the radio, yesterday was a big news day. KJR announced the addition of Cam Cleeland and Greg Lewis to its gameday crew. Initial reactions to the duo are positive, so I’ll look forward to hearing them (for road games, anyway).
- Stewart Mandel has his own mailbag with some Pac-12 nuggets. He looks at the relative heat on Chip Kelly and Clay Helton across town from each other in LA, as well as a bevy of other topics.
- Scott Eklund profiled new Husky Giles Jackson and got some good details about him off the field. Jackson plays the trump and loves shrimp alfredo. Stars, they’re just like us.
Bucks wanted it more. Hats off to Giannis man. One of the only players I’ve ever seen give it his all on both ends of the floor each and every game. I Truly respect that shiii!! #WellDeserved— Budda Baker (@buddabaker32) July 21, 2021
While you could certainly build on a young talent, I'm trying to win immediately. Considering overall impact, plus leadership and culture traits, would be hard to pass on Eddy Ulofoshio. Plus you probably have him for at least two more years, unlike a Kirkland/ZTF/McDuffie.— Mike Vorel (@mikevorel) July 21, 2021
Last summer, Jrue Holiday pledged the remainder of his 2020 NBA salary ($5.3 million) to create The Jrue and Lauren Holiday Social Justice Fund to help Black-owned businesses and Black-led organizations.— The Undefeated (@TheUndefeated) July 21, 2021
Tonight, he's an NBA champion.
