Happy Fourth of July weekend, Dawg fans, and welcome to today’s Dots.

  • But first, a message from American national treasure Dolly Parton:
  • The decision expected by most - JTT’s commitment to Ohio State - is the scenario that creates the fewest column inches in this edition of Dots. In the end, there were no surprises - no last second maneuvers shocking us to joy or dread. And now we can all finally move on.

Reminds me of this scene from the film Hoosiers (1986):
Some ref: “Coach you need one more.”
Gene Hackman: “My team’s on the floor.”

  • This piece from Husky Maven serves to remind that players leaving home is nothing new. And somehow the sun still comes up each morning.
  • Forget those NIL opportunities from the local tech giants. THIS is it right here:
  • Once a Dawg, always a Dawg.
  • A member of the College Football Hall of Fame, Terry Donahue was UCLA head coach for 20 years and won 7 consecutive bowl games in the 1980’s, including three Rose Bowls. Donahue’s legacy harkens back to the era of John Robinson, Don James, and Rich Brooks.

Happy Birthday, America.

And Go Dawgs!!
