Happy Tuesday, here’s some dots:
- Mike Vorel does his best with the tricky task of ranking UW’s top 50 players going into this year. This morning he covers 40-31. (Yesterday he had 50-41, if you missed it.)
- All Minnesota’s quarterbacks are in COVID protocol at the moment except for Jake Browning. Here’s a handful of articles about that, including some of his thoughts on the bizarre scenario.
- The Vikings’ SB Nation site, The Daily Norseman, has a podcast out where they talk about the Jake show.
I’m not crying you’re crying:

For those of you who haven’t been paying more attention to NFL training camps, between and injury wiping out Carson Wentz and COVID taking out the Vikings’ quarterbacks not named Jake Browning, the Montlake Jakes are all the sudden getting a lot of notice:
