  • The Seattle Times released a comprehensive breakdown of the final days of the Pac-12 before UW and Oregon announced their departure for the Big 10. David Gutman combed through mountains of emails and text messages, including those between UW President Ana Mari Cauce and other Pac-12 leaders. The messages show that Cauce was conflicted about the process over the final days and stayed engaged with both the Pac-12 media rights negotiations and alternative tracks until the final moments. Those predisposed to disliking Cauce or UW might see the process as an opportunistic scheme, but it’s hard to see how Cauce or Jen Cohen could have acted differently if their job was to keep UW’s best interest as the top priority.

  • UW Basketball got tremendous news over the weekend when five-star recruit Zoom Diallo committed to play for the Huskies next season. Diallo is a native Tacoman who is playing his senior year of HS in California. He picked the Huskies over Gonzaga and Arizona. He is the top recruit the Huskies have landed out of high school since Isaiah Stewart and Jaden McDaniels committed early in Mike Hopkins’ tenure Diallo is a crafty guard who can score from anywhere on the court, run the pick-and-roll, and set up his teammates.

  • Speaking of Husky tight ends, Devin Culp spoke to the media. He talked about how easy Michael Penix makes his job of catching passes, as well as some of the challenges of facing the Texas defense in the Sugar Bowl.
