And I don’t understand why I sleep all day
And I start to complain that there’s no rain
And all I can do is read Dots to stay awake

- If Edefuan Ulofoshio wasn’t already one of your favorite Huskies, he will be after reading Mike Vorel’s profile of him. Vorel details the family’s travels from Nigeria to Alaska to Nevada to Ulofoshio walking on at UW. Now, Ulofshio is one of the best players and an indispensable part of a team with designs on a Pac-12 Championship.
- Jon Wilner writes about the threat that West Coast wildfires could pose to football games and the Pac-12 season at large. He argues that the fires could be a bigger threat to the season than Covid. My only quibble with that assertion is: why not both?
- Last week, Jimmy Lake told the media that the Huskies “should be contending for the Pac-12 Championship every year.” Christian Caple took a deeper look into what that means what what realistic expectations for the Dawgs would look like. While Lake aims high, those around the program seem to converge around winning the Pac-12 North more often than not as the key barometer. Let’s start with winning at least nine games this regular season and see where that leaves us.
- For those interested in Sports Talk Radio, 710 ESPN had announced another programming shakeup. Danny O’Neil and Paul Gallant are out from the station’s morning show; Mike Salk (without Brock Huard) is back in.
