Chris Petersen names his starting quarterback, reassessing the various position battles, and Shaq Thompson's potential as a two-way star.
Friday Dots: Better late than never.
It seems that the Hawks Nest is making its way to Montlake, where it will be known as "The Off-Leash Deck." Depending on what kind of person you are and/or where your seats at Husky Stadium are located, this is either the best or worst news you've received today.
- Chris already gathered a lot of great content for you in his Camp Buzz post from earlier today, so check that post out if you haven't yet paid it a visit.
- If you somehow managed to click on this link without yet seeing who Washington's starting quarterback versus Hawaii will be, Chris Petersen made his selection of Jeff Lindquist public earlier today. Mason Kelly has a timely story about Lindquist's work ethic (methinks this might not be a coincidence).
- Kelly also writes about the Dawgs partaking in a canoe race around the Montlake cut.
- Adam Jude examines the pecking order at running back, and spoke with Chris Petersen about how his experiences have shaped him into the man he is today.
- Christian Caple has been busy, writing stories in the last several days about Washington's sudden availability of talented kickers, the remarkably veteran offensive line, the running back competition, and the youth in the defensive secondary.
- Laine Higgins the USA Today includes Shaq Thompson in this roundup of college football's most impressive two-way stars.
- Phil Neuffer of the Sports Network wrote a preseason preview of the Dawgs, as did Kirsten Kendrick and Art Thiel for KPLU.
- ICYMI, here's Chris' reaction to the news that Washington has scheduled a home-and-home series in the coming years with Michigan and BYU.
- With 2015 QB Jake Browning in the fold, Erik McKinney calls Washington one of the Pac-12's winners of the quarterback recruiting race.
- Daniel Uthman at the USA Today has a fun story about how Budda Baker helped Myles Jack develop his coverage skills.
- Mark Schlabach marks the passing of the BCS by catching up with Washington alum Jeff Anderson, who helped create college football's much maligned computer ranking system.
- Judging from the volume of Google news alerts I've received in the last seven days, Bishop Sankey has apparently acquired a reputation as a voracious fumbler. What can I say? That's certainly news to me.
