7th-ranked Husky Volleyball Hitting their Stride

7th-ranked Husky Volleyball Hitting their Stride

A thorough beatdown of previously-undefeated Maryland on the road showed the Dawgs are ready for the tough grind of Pac-12 volleyball coming up. A home non-conference loss, albeit one to a top-10 Creighton opponent, the first regular season non-conference loss by Husky volleyball since 2008 at Hawaii. A disappointing offensive performance in a close win against a decent, but unspectacular, Santa Clara squad. Multiple close calls against lesser competition at a tourney hosted by Pepperdine, both against the host Waves and the Wyoming Cowgirls. Although ranked #7 in the country entering the...

PAC 12 Power Rankings: Week 3

PAC 12 Power Rankings: Week 3

Cal is moving up. The preseason is effectively over and conference play is about to begin. It is always dangerous to try to project conference play based on what PAC 12 coaches do in the first three weeks. Player rotations are still being figured out, schemes are being installed and new stars are still waiting to emerge. You might recall that most of us thought that USC was about to break off and float away in the Pacific Ocean about this time a year ago. Despite the futility of it all, I think there are some interesting observations to be had about the conference to date. I’ll deliver...

Follow today’s action with your fellow UW Dawg Pound readers. The Washington Huskies will wrap up the non-conference portion of their 2017 schedule tonight when they take on Fresno State Bulldogs. The Bulldogs are in the midst of rebuilding a program that hasn’t beaten an FBS opponent since November 2015, and hired Jeff Teford as head coach late last year in an effort to right the ship. In addition to his experience as California’s head coach from 2002 to 2012, Tedford spent 2016 as an off-field offensive consultant at Washington, helping offensive coordinator Jonathan Smith engineer...

The Prediction: Fresno State Bulldogs vs. Washington Huskies Football

The Prediction: Fresno State Bulldogs vs. Washington Huskies Football

Sitting at 2-0 with comfortable wins over Rutgers and Montana, the Washington Huskies are right where we expected them to be at this point in the season. That course doesn’t figure to change tomorrow, when the Dawgs take on a Fresno State Bulldogs team that has lost 23 of its last 28 contests. Despite featuring a new head coach in Jeff Tedford who spent 2016 as an offensive consultant on Montlake, the Huskies are favored by 33 points in tomorrow’s contest. Do any of the UW Dawg Pound writers think that a closer game is in store? Ryan Priest The non-conference schedule of our discontent...

Mailbag: Fresno State (sponsored by Ragu) Edition

Facts about the state of Fresno, and bulldogs. Fresno county was once part of Mexico. When it was ceded to the US after the Mexican-American war in 1848, one of the conditions was that we’d never try to give it back. Fresno has its own unique fog, called “tule fog” that’s named after the tule grass wetlands, and typically forms in the wet winter months. All raisins produced in the US are produced within a 60-mile radius of Fresno, which is also 50% of the entire world’s annual production. Fresno county is the #1 agricultural producer in the US, and has been for nearly 50...
