Happy Monday Dawg fans, and welcome to today’s Dots.
- Hot off the press - Christian Caple has a 2700 word interview with former Husky, now Duck, Taki Taimani: “Exit interview: Why Taki Taimani is leaving Washington for Oregon, his impressions of the program and more”
- There were heavy weekend rumors and prognostications of Purdue WR coach JaMarcus Shephard coming to UW — those have subsided for the time being with word that Shephard is also being courted by Notre Dame. Not linking anything here, Google is your friend (but is it always?)
- “UW Husky men have another rough day inside while losing to Colorado” (Percy Allen, Seattle Times)
- Three Huskies from the men’s soccer team are projected to be taken in the first round of tomorrow’s MLS Super Draft, with UW defender Charlie Ostrem possibly landing with the Sounders.
- DB standout Mishael Powell is a walk-on no more:
