Kelsey Plum makes NCAA Women’s Basketball history

The UW star dropped 57 points on Utah and became the all-time leading scorer in NCAA Women’s Basketball History. Hello Dawg Fans! Welcome to the magical world of Washington Women’s Basketball.

I was offered the opportunity to provide some very biased insight on the Washington Women’s Basketball program. Of course I jumped gleefully at the opportunity and here we are.

Chris Strausser leaving Washington

Chris Strausser leaving Washington

Chris Petersen will be looking for a new offensive line coach A surprising development came to a head on Saturday afternoon as the Denver Post reported that Washington offensive line coach Chris Strausser had accepted an assistant’s role with the NFL’s Denver Broncos. Strausser will serve as the assistant to Broncos offensive line coach as Jeff Davidson and under offensive coordinator Mike McCoy in new head coach Vance Joseph’s multiple system. That Strausser left his current post for something less than a full positions coach position, even at the NFL level, is sure to raise some...

Plotting the Learning Curve

Plotting the Learning Curve

How much can we expect the UW sophomores to grow next season? One of the primary criticisms of Lorenzo Romar recently has been that he is no longer able to adequately develop talent. Exhibit A appears to be Nigel Williams-Goss. NWG was clearly a very good player during his 2 years at Washington after joining the program as a McDonalds All-American. This year however, he has become one of the elite point guards in the country, joining Markelle Fultz as one of 20 finalists for the Wooden Award. The counter argument is of course that NWG is now in his 4th year of college basketball and...

Sources: Matt Lubick to become new UW WR coach

The former Ducks coach will be joining Coach Pete’s staff FootballScoop.com is among the sources reporting that Matt Lubick will be replacing Bush Hamdan as the Wide Receivers coach at the University of Washington. Lubick is best known for his role with the Oregon Ducks under Mark Helfrich. This would mark the 4th school that Lubick has been employed by in the past 4 months. After Oregon decided to move on from the current coaching staff after the 2016 season, Lubick signed on as the WR coach at Ole Miss (a position which he also held in 2005-2006). However, less than a month later he...

12 for ‘16: Assistants provide the assistance

What was once a source of anxiety has become a source of confidence for Husky fans and UW players. So, it’s been a little while since I last wrote on the site. I assure you, my absence isn’t related to a silent protest over the sad state of Husky basketball or due to a nacho-and-beer induced malaise post Super Bowl. Likewise, my absence hasn’t been because of excessive consumption of cable news (geez, is there anything happening in the world?) or due to being sprayed by a mystery liquid while traveling through Malaysia. Let it be known, in fact, that I’ve never been to...

Husky Coaches Host Junior Day

Husky Coaches Host Junior Day

Huskies Hosting Top Junior Wideout This weekend Husky coaches are hosting some local visitors along with a huge (literally) wide receiver target. Below are some notable visitors this weekend from junior day (note: it's not an all encompassing list): Marquis Spiker a 4 star wideout out of Murrieta Valley HS, CA. He is one of the top California wideouts and has offers from the likes of USC, Michigan, Oregon, UCLA, and UW. He is considered a Husky lean and would be a huge get for Coach Pete. It will be interesting to see who is hired to replace Bush Hamden and if Spiker will wait to make his...

Should Malik Dime play Senior Night?

Should Malik Dime play Senior Night?

The correct answer is yes Lorenzo Romar was noncommittal when asked about the status of Malik Dime for Saturday’s final home game against Arizona. Dime was suspended indefinitely when he went Three Stooges on Colorado Buffalo fans mouthing off. Romar told the media that it will be a game day decision. Obviously, he is disappointed of Dime’s actions at Colorado. .@CoachRomar's thoughts on senior captain Malik Dime ahead of @UW_MBB Senior Night. #Dawgman pic.twitter.com/k9SeBUxiRj— Chris Fetters (@Chris_Fetters) February 17, 2017 Dime also has been out with a pinky injury since...
