DawgmanRadio: How Did You Like Them Apples? Huskies take down WSU 51-33 in 114th Apple Cup

The guys from Dawgman.com - Chris Fetters and Scott Eklund - held down the fort Saturday night while Kim Grinolds raced back to the west side after witnessing the 114th Apple Cup first-hand. Kim saw the No. 13 Washington Huskies overcome some early sloppiness on offense and ineffectiveness on defense to put on a second-half masterclass in Pullman, eventually defeating Washington State 51-33 to ensure a 10-win regular season. The win also exorcized some demons for the Huskies that played in last year's 40-13 win by the Cougars in Seattle. After our initial thoughts, we broke down what we saw when Washington State's offense started the game versus Washington's defense. The Huskies had a devil of a time getting WSU Quarterback Cameron Ward on the ground, and he made the pay - time and time again. But eventually UW's game plan paid off when they only allowed Washington State six second-half points and 129 total yards of offense. What allowed them to be so efficient and effective in the second half compared to the first half?  After a quick break, we switch sides and look at a Washington offense led by Michael Penix Jr. that averaged 10.5 yards per play. Despite running over 20 fewer plays in the game compared to Washington State, they out-gained the Cougars by 270 yards. Remarkable. And what's more remarkable is that they did it despite a slow start for the UW offense. It was only the second time all season they didn't score points on their initial drive. But they eventually found their footing, finished the half ahead 28-27, and then it only took one play - a 75-yard pass from Penix to Jalen McMillan - to show that the Huskies were not going to mess around. Both McMillan and Rome Odunze went over the 1000-yard mark in receiving yards Saturday night.  They finished with 703 yards of total offense - good for third all-time and a UW Apple Cup record - and they did that despite back-to-back turnovers in the second half.  And once they got things rolling in the second quarter, did it ever look like Washington State and their number-one conference scoring defense were going to stop them? After another quick break, Chris and Scott talked about the ramifications for the Huskies as they look to bowl season. Did Washington get inadvertently hosed by the Pac-12 because of their preseason move to consolidate the divisions and take the top two teams regardless of record? Because if they hadn't done that, UW would be playing USC in the Pac-12 Championship game next weekend instead of Utah. But does the 10 wins, coupled by a potential of USC making the College Football Playoff, guarantee a New Year's Six bowl game for the Huskies? And where do they think the Huskies will end up when the latest College Football Playoff poll is released on Tuesday?

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Scott Eklund - dealt with some technical difficulties, a power outage, and ghosts in the machine to put together an Apple Cup pregame show. It sounded at times like it was put together 114 years ago in the middle of the Palouse instead of today, but the guys got their points across and they beg your forgiveness. To start, they talk a little bit about WSU Head Coach Jake Dickert and how a defensive coach is a bit of a change from Mike Leach and the Air Raid attack where it was all passing all the time. Then they go into Washington State's offense, talk some about their quarterback - Cameron Ward - as well as the skill players around Ward that will try and exploit Washington's defense. Talk then turned to Washington's offense and what they're going to try to do to score against Washington State's defense. A couple of the guys think that WSU's defense is a little overrated, despite leading the Pac-12 in scoring defense. The guys also talk about what they expect the Cougars to do to put some pressure on Michael Penix Jr., and how the Huskies will counter those moves, as well as if WSU will try and take certain receivers away, like Colorado did with Rome Odunze. Would that fundamentally change things, or is that just a matter of picking your poison against a deep and talented UW receiving corps? After a break, the guys move to some talk of the Washington running backs room and how important they will be in terms of setting the tone offensively for UW and how they need to be effective and productive when the Cougars try and sit back to lull Penix into a false sense of security. And could there be more backs involved tonight than just Wayne Taulapapa and Cameron Davis? Scott provides a quick recruiting update, and Kim and Chris offer up their two cents' worth on UW Hoops after their 4-point win over Saint Mary's on Thanksgiving night to win the Paycom Wooden Legacy Championship, as well as their final thoughts on what they expect to see tonight on the Palouse.

This may not have been 70-21, but any win is a quality win when you head to Autzen Stadium, and that's exactly what the No. 25 Washington Huskies did Saturday afternoon, defeating the No. 6 Oregon Ducks 37-34. The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Scott Eklund - broke down all the main talking points of the game, starting with the decision to take the ball after winning the coin toss. That was the first time Kalen DeBoer had taken the ball after winning the toss, and it proved to be a wise decision, as the Huskies went down and immediately scored. Washington also got a huge slice of luck when Oregon out-tricked themselves, leading to a fumbled snap that Alphonzo Tuputala was able to gather near the UW goal line, eliminating the possibility of points for the Ducks on that key second quarter series. Not many predicted a 13-10 halftime score; in fact most of us predicted a basketball score. But it turned out to be a heavyweight fight instead, especially in the second half. The Ducks marched right down the field and scored on a bomb, which was matched by Washington when they scored. Both teams traded serious haymakers in the third quarter, and that spilled over into the beginning of the fourth, when UW quarterback Michael Penix Jr. made an uncharacteristically bad decision near Oregon's goal line. A forced pass was tipped by Oregon linebacker Noah Sewell and gathered in by defensive back Jeffrey Bassa. That's when Oregon began to slowly steamroll Washington into the Autzen Stadium turf, a 20-play drive designed to have their opponents cry UNCLE! And UW almost did, until safety Alex Cook diagnosed a Bo Nix keeper on third down, stopping him three yards short of a first down. With Nix banged up on the play, Oregon decided to kick a field goal to give them a 7-point lead. After a quick break, the Dawgman guys talk about that sequence, as well as how the Huskies responded with a 3-play, 65-yard scoring drive, punctuated by a 62-yard pass from Penix to Taj Davis, a pass that had to be seen to be believed. Then the guys broke down Oregon's next series, the one that would actually give Washington the ball back after Nix wasn't able to get back in the game. The Ducks tried to run four times, including a fourth and 1 at their own 34, but Noah Whittington slipped and fell down behind the line of scrimmage, and it all happened while Nix was on the sideline trying desperately to get back in the game. Kim breaks down the post-game scene on the field and during the press conference, and then the guys give their final thoughts on a crazy, historic day at Autzen Stadium, including the deserved Peyton Henry redemption arc.

There may not be a Washington football game this weekend as the Huskies take their BYE week, but the guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Scott Eklund - still have plenty to talk about. They posted their mid-season awards earlier in the week, and that's where they started. And any conversation when it comes to the top players so far through 8 games, it all has to start with quarterback Michael Penix Jr. The senior from Florida has absolutely lit it up for the Huskies in 2022, as he leads the country in passing yards per game. The guys also talked a little bit about the offense in general, with some specific conversations about the running backs and receivers, as well as the job new Offensive Coordinator Ryan Grubb has done. Do we think he'll be in line for a head coaching job soon? The talk then moves to the defensive side of the ball, including discussion on why the defense has struggled in general, what are they going to do about the secondary issues, and how big an impact Tuli Letuligasenoa has made to the defensive front so far this season. After a break to pay some bills, the guys come back to talk about this week's Pac-12 Men's Basketball Media Day, including the storylines for the Hoop Dawgs coming into the season. How will Keion Brooks fit in as a new transfer from Kentucky? How much will he be counted on to take the scoring load given up when Terrell Brown, Jr. graduated? And who will be counted on to put the ball in the net from deep? And how big an impact will the transfer bigs - Franck Kepnang from Oregon and Braxton Meah from Fresno State - make over the course of the season? And can this group be the one that gets the zone back working to the point where it is a legitimate weapon in Mike Hopkins' arsenal? Scott finishes up the podcast with a quick recruiting update, including where some of the coaches were at during the BYE week, and then they give their final thoughts as the Huskies look ahead to hosting the Oregon State Beavers this coming Friday night at Husky Stadium.

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Scott Eklund - got together after Washington's Saturday night 28-21 win at California and broke down the main storylines that came from Memorial Stadium. It was Prime Pac-12 After Dark, which meant the game would probably have some moments that would make you just shake your head, and with this game all those head-shaking moments came courtesy of the Pac-12 officiating crew on hand - but we did our best to not get too bogged down with that nonsense. The first part of the podcast gave our initial thoughts on the win, including the fact that it officially makes Washington bowl-eligible, something that is super-important for any program, but means probably just a little bit more for a first-year staff trying to generate some success and create a product that they can sell in recruiting. And when you have an offense that generated over 475 yards of total offense and comes away with a win, you can sell a lot. The other initial storyline would have been the Huskies getting their first win on the road and doing it without a turnover. These Road Dawgs didn't make it easy on themselves, going for nearly 250 yards of total offense in the first half while forcing Cal into four-straight punts - and yet only were up by 6 heading into halftime. But they didn't hand points to Cal either, whether via fumble or interception. They weren't 100 percent clean all the time, but they did force the Golden Bears into some long fields to try and get back in the game after the Huskies scored on their first three possessions of the second half.  After a quick break, the guys talk about that crazy second half that saw the Huskies and Golden Bears basically draw (UW outscored Cal 22-21), and also saw Washington's defensive front do what they did against Arizona; come up big in the moments that mattered to get sacks or put a licking on Cal quarterback Jack Plummer to the point where he just couldn't sustain any drives at the end of the game. But did the Huskies get a little greedy at the end offensively instead of trying to salt the game away on the ground? The guys then give their final thoughts, including how important it's going to be for the Huskies to maximize the time they have during the upcoming bye week before finishing their season with a strong slate of games; Oregon State, at Oregon, Colorado, and at Washington State.

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Scott Eklund - got together ahead of the Arizona-Washington game to break down the main storylines, but it's hard to get past the biggest one of all; these defenses are bad. To start the show, they talked about how Arizona should attack a wounded UW defense, licking their wounds and trying to limp through the next two games before a much-needed BYE week shows up. They are especially banged up in the secondary, which makes the recent news of Cameron Williams redshirting all the more curious. They talk about that, as well as what we might expect to see from a defensive backfield that will unveil their seventh different lineup in as many weeks. They also talked about the defensive front and why UW had to rely on true freshman Jayvon Parker and what the future looks like in that position. But most importantly, they talked about Arizona quarterback Jayden de Laura and what Washington has to do in order to get him off his spot and behind the chains. After a quick break, that led them right into the main point in trying to limit de Laura; get out to a sizable lead, and force de Laura into situations where he needs to push the ball downfield. As it has been shown so far this season, when he feels like he's got to get the 'Cats back in the game, that's when he can make mistakes when extending plays. The guys also talk about the interesting decision by Arizona Head Coach Jedd Fisch to hire former Washington, USC, and UCLA assistant coach Johnny Nansen to be his defensive coordinator. And with Arizona's run defense statistically one of the worst in all of college football, the UW offensive game plan seems clear; run, run, run, and then let Michael Penix Jr. play-action off of those runs. But who will be UW's leading ballcarrier? Wayne Taulapapa? Cameron Davis? Richard Newton? Will Nixon? Sam Adams? It will be interesting to see who emerges, and it may be more than one. They also talk about the role the tight ends could play in a game plan like this, and also delve into an important question about game mechanics; if UW wins the toss, should they take the ball? This may be one of the few games where going on the offensive from the start is the right tactic to take.

The guys from Dawgman.com - Chris Fetters and Scott Eklund - broke down the main storylines heading into Washington's Homecoming game versus Arizona. After their UCLA loss, the sense was one of being hurt, but after losing to Arizona State in Tempe this past Saturday, the vibe seemed to be more of the 'pissed off' variety. The defense is struggling to get off the field right now in a big way, but the coaches have been pleased and impressed with how the players have responded week after week, regardless of the result. They continue to practice hard and fix problems. Against UCLA they struggled to tackle effectively; their Pro Football Focus tackling grade at ASU was 90.0. That's an improvement. Now they'll have to fix their third down woes against an Arizona team that is top 25 nationally in third down percentage on offense. The guys talked first about some of the main talking points when Head Coach Kalen DeBoer, Offensive Coordinator Ryan Grubb, and Co-Defensive Coordinator Chuck Morrell met with the media, including a deep dive into some of the key plays and moments in UW's loss to ASU. After a quick break, the guys talk about their conversations with the UW players they spoke with this week - Cameron Davis, Rome Odunze, Bralen Trice, Cam Bright, and Alex Cook - with specific reference to the main storylines heading into Saturday's game versus Arizona. UA quarterback Jayden de Laura planted the WSU flag at midfield after their Apple Cup win last season, and that is certainly something that is on the players' minds, even if the only current UW coach that experienced that game was Scott Huff. And there are certainly other UA skill players that Washington will have to focus on, including pass-catchers Jacob Cowing, Dorian Singer, Tetairoa McMillan, and Tanner McLachlan. After another quick break, it was time to talk about the chats with the media and the other UW coaches they spoke with - Huff, JaMarcus Shephard, Eric Schmidt, and Julius Brown. There was plenty of talk about getting off the field on third down, how the combination of Troy Fautanu and Jaxson Kirkland on the left side of the offensive line is working out, how that might help UW this weekend against an anemic Arizona run defense, and more - including the guys' final thoughts.

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds and Chris Fetters - sort through the wreckage that was Washington's 45-38 loss to Arizona State. That's eight-straight losses for the Huskies in Tempe, an absolute house of horrors for these Dawgs. Arizona State lost their quarterback, Emory Jones, in the second quarter, but just kept chugging along with backup Trenton Bourguet, who finished the game 15-21 for 182 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. And the Sun Devils were also dealing with their own program issues, as they recently fired Herm Edwards and RB Coach Shaun Aguano was put in charge of things for the rest of the season. Elijah Jackson made his first career start for the Huskies at cornerback, and true freshmen Tristan Dunn and Jayvon Parker played a lot of snaps Saturday afternoon. In the end, the heat didn't make a huge difference, and the grass didn't either. Because Washington tied the game up at 38 with 12 minutes to play and the game was there for the taking. But an inability by the defense to stop anyone on third down, coupled with UW's tepid final drive - one that included a 30-yard fumble that gave them no hope of trying to find the end zone - sealed their fate, a fate UW has suffered many times in Sun Devil Stadium. Grinolds and Fetters broke down the problems that plagued Washington's defense, the plays that turned the game in ASU's favor, and where they go from here. Here's a hint; any UW fan that thinks the defense is going to miraculously get healthy or better before they host Arizona a week from now should re-think their opinion. This group of Dawgs is battered and bruised up, trying to figure out a way to get through the next two weeks before the bye week arrives.

To get a better idea of what Washington will see from their hosts, the Arizona State Sun Devils, SunDevilSource's Chris Karpman gave an in-depth update on the status of the program and also spoke with Kim Grinolds to give fans an idea as to what he expects from ASU today.

Talk then turns to what they expect to see when Arizona State's offense matches up with UW's Death Row Defense. Will turnovers play a role in today's game? The Huskies have been talking takeaways all week, so we'll see if they can force ASU QB Emory Jones into some poor decisions. After a quick break, they switch sides and talk about what they think will happen with Washington has the ball on offense. Can UW exploit the fact that ASU is having a hell of a time getting off the field on third down? And what do they expect to see with the continued experiment of Troy Fautanu at left tackle and Jaxson Kirkland at left guard. And which players on that side of the ball do they expect to step up and have big games? Here's a hint; they all picked a different player from the same position group. After the final break, Scott gives a quick recruiting update, Kim and Chris offer some more thoughts on the verbal commitment of top shooting guard Wesley Yates to the Hoop Dawgs, and all three give their final takes on what they expect to see at Sun Devil Stadium today.

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Scott Eklund - broke down the main storylines heading out of Washington's first loss of the season to UCLA, and how those storylines may change as the Huskies prepare to go back on the road again to play Arizona State. UW has not won in Tempe since 2001. The first storyline was how the team has bounced back from the UCLA loss, their first of the season. Starting with Kalen DeBoer, the guys talked about the things that plagued the Huskies on the road at the Rose Bowl and what they have to clean up before they go back on the road to face Arizona State, including penalties and sudden change plays. One of the other big storylines coming out of the UCLA game was the move of Jaxson Kirkland inside, which meant another start at left tackle for Troy Fautanu. Is Kirkland better suited inside or outside, especially with a look forward to his potential as a professional? The next storyline centered around the offensive miscues against UCLA, namely the interceptions thrown by Michael Penix, Jr. and the fumble by Wayne Taulapapa near their goal line that resulted in a safety. After a break to pay some bills, the talk turns to the upcoming Arizona State road game, where it's going to be hot and humid. Add a mid-day start (1 pm) to the mix and the Huskies have to be on point with their hydration. Another point of emphasis will be getting after ASU on offense and quarterback Emory Jones, a Florida transfer. Why do their statistics not match up with the fact that they have a number of top skill players that can make plays? Talk then moved to some big hoops news this week, the verbal commit of Wesley Yates to UW. Yates, a 6-4, 210-pound prospect from Beaumont, Tex., is 247Sports' No. 2 shooting guard nationally. How will Yates fit into the Huskies' personnel, especially knowing the only player they will lose for sure after this upcoming season is Jamal Bey.

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds live from the Rose Bowl and Chris Fetters and Scott Eklund from home - broke down Washington's 40-32 loss to UCLA, a game that certainly could have been won by the visitors except for the fact that they dug themselves a 33-10 third quarter hole they couldn't fully get out out of. They start out talking about the first half, one where UCLA's Dorian Thompson-Robinson was able to pretty much do whatever he wanted on the field. Couple that with two interceptions thrown by UW's Michael Penix and a safety, and the Bruins were able to go into the half up 26-10. The second half of the podcast talks about the adjustments made at halftime, which saw UW outscore UCLA 22-14 (including 16-0 in the fourth quarter), but all the mistakes they had made up to that point - including penalties, poor angles and tackling, and UCLA playing a strong field position game - just could not be fully overcome. And DTR was able to run UCLA's offense and possess the ball in such a way that eliminated any chance the Huskies had of evening the score even after they had crawled all the way back to make it a one-score affair. So what lessons were learned? What Washington team do we expect to see a week from now down in the desert when the Huskies try and regroup at Arizona State? The guys talk about that in their final thoughts. To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Scott Eklund - break down the top storylines for tonight's game between Washington and UCLA, set for a 7:30 pm kickoff at the Rose Bowl. For Washington, it's their first road game under Kalen DeBoer. It will be their first game on grass. For UCLA, this will be their first true test after playing Bowling Green, Alabama State, South Alabama, and Colorado. The first segment starts with Michael Penix Jr. and how he is putting together a season worth early Heisman Trophy consideration. Just how big an addition has Penix been to an offense that struggled mightily last season but hasn't been stopped so far this year? And when talking about UW's offense versus UCLA's defense, the talk turns to former Husky Laiatu Latu, who is tearing it up with the Bruins. He earned Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week honors for his play at Colorado. How did he end up at Westwood after not being cleared by the Washington doctors? And will Latu line up against Jaxson Kirkland, or Roger Rosengarten? Speaking of the offensive line, what has gotten into them? The same players that have kept Penix upright and firing on all cylinders is the same group of players that really struggled to lead anything on offense last season. One other thing; UW OC Ryan Grubb coached against UCLA in the Rose Bowl last season with Fresno State, a game they won 40-37. But the Bruins have a new DC and new defensive coaches like Ken Norton Jr. and former UW player and coach Ikaika Malloe. How will that chess match go within the football game? After a quick break, talk turns to the matchup of UCLA's offense versus Washington's defense. It all starts with QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson for the Bruins, as well as RB Zach Charbonnet. What is the guys' take on DTR? And can UW's defense contain them enough to allow Washington's offense to go to work? And which players will the Huskies lean on to get the Bruins on the ground? There's one more quick pause to pay some bills, and then Scott and Kim provide recruiting updates and then the three of them give their final game thoughts before wrapping things up.

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Scott Eklund - went into overtime Saturday night and into Sunday morning to break down their thoughts after the No. 18 Washington Huskies defeated the Stanford Cardinal 40-22 at Husky Stadium. It was a game where the Huskies did so many things right in terms of the mechanics of the game - no turnovers, forced three Stanford miscues, ran the ball, kept Stanford's run game in check, played strong field position, and always came back in a positive way after the Cardinal scored - yet there was still so much more meat left on the bone. Starting with the offense, Michael Penix, Jr. had another 300-yard passing game, but he was not the same quarterback that sliced and diced Michigan State the week before. Did the new Heisman talk start to seep in a little bit? Wayne Taulapapa ran for a career-high 120 yards, the first time he's ever run for more than 100 yards in a game in his career, and the running backs did enough to help Penix to keep the Cardinal defense off-balance. It was also the first game back for left tackle Jaxson Kirkland, and he looked pretty sharp in his 2022 debut. Obviously it's also the first time he's worked side-by-side with Troy Fautanu this season, so they will continue to improve as the season goes on. Rome Odunze caught up with the other three UW receivers that have 100-yard games - Jalen McMillan, Ja'Lynn Polk, and Giles Jackson - with 161 yards on 8 catches. After a quick break, talk turned to the defensive side of the ball, and the Huskies did a really good job of taking away Stanford's version of the 'slow mesh' RPO offense. The Cardinal weren't able to complete a successful shot play until there was 5 minutes left in the second quarter, and this was against a UW secondary that was without Jordan Perryman or Mishael Powell, their starting cornerbacks. The key was getting to Stanford quarterback Tanner McKee, and the Huskies did that to the tune of 8 sacks and 10 total tackles for loss. Bralen Trice and Alphonzo Tuputala each had two sacks, and Jeremiah Martin and Zion Tupuola-Fetui had 1.5 sacks apiece. The guys also gave mention to the special teams stars, namely Peyton Henry (who had 4 field goals on the night) and Carson Bruener, who has turned himself into a cover team demon. We wrap up the podcast with our final thoughts as the Huskies get back to work in anticipation of a short week. They become Road Dawgs for the first time this year, traveling to UCLA for a Friday night game at the Rose Bowl.

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Scott Eklund - are back on the airwaves talking about Washington's opponent this weekend, the Stanford Cardinal. And while the Cardinal had a bye week to get healthy and regroup after a 41-28 loss to USC, they are walking a little wounded coming to Seattle for this Pac-12 matchup. With no EJ Smith, the Cardinal (1-1) will have to rely on Casey Filkins to help fill the running back responsibilities, and it looks like either Barrett Miller or Connor McLaughlin will have to replace starting right tackle Myles Hinton, who won't be making the trip up north. The guys talked first about Stanford's offense, what Cardinal quarterback Tanner McKee will have to do without Smith to help balance out their offensive attack, and also a bunch of talk about the wrinkle David Shaw debuted versus USC, the 'slow mesh' RPO game. Originally designed by the coaches at Wake Forest, will the new twist in Stanford's offense cause issues for Washington, or will they continue to pin their ears back and go full tilt for the backfield, led by their talented EDGE players? After a quick break, the guys turn the tables and talk about one of the biggest storylines going in all of college football right now; the massive resurgence of Washington's offense under the leadership of first-year head coach Kalen DeBoer and Offensive Coordinator Ryan Grubb. Indiana transfer quarterback Michael Penix Jr. has been nothing short of outstanding through the first three games of the season, throwing for nearly 400 yards and four touchdowns in their last game, a win over No. 9/11 Michigan State that catapulted Penix into early Heisman Trophy discussions. The guys talked about Richard Newton perhaps being the answer to UW's short-yardage and goal line concerns, as well as how well the receiving corps is doing and how their play has done nothing but open up big opportunities for the tight ends to make their mark in the receiving game. Stanford did make a fundamental scheme change during the offseason, going from a 3-4 base defense to an even front that may resemble Washington's 4-2-5 base. After another quick break, Scott updated us on the latest recruiting scuttlebutt coming out of this past weekend, and Kim also provided a quick hoops recruiting update too, as the Huskies have been hosting a couple of official visitors.

The Huskies host the Stanford Cardinal Saturday night at Husky Stadium. The Cardinal are 1-1 and fresh off a bye week. To start, the guys talked about what UW Head Coach Kalen DeBoer and the two coordinators - Ryan Grubb and William Inge - had to say this week, specifically about the lack of physicality and efficiency at the goal line in the run game. Talk also turned to talk of DeBoer potentially being a candidate at Nebraska, a thought roundly shot down. And would some of his assistants be looking to become head coaches down the road, like Grubb? After the coaching carousel discussion, the guys then talk about some of the conversations they had with the UW players, namely Julius Irvin and Michael Penix, Jr..

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Scott Eklund - made their way through the throng of fans and students to press row and rehash a famous 39-28 win for the Washington Huskies, one 21 years in the making. The year 2001 was the last year UW won a home game over a ranked Power-5 non-conference opponent, and it happened to be MSU's neighbors from Ann Arbor. But this year's Huskies made quick work of the Spartans, pushing out to a 36-14 third quarter lead before the visitors made a full-throated push to get back in the ballgame. In the first part of the podcast, the guys talked about the environment and how Washington was able to get on top of the game quickly - mostly due to the play of quarterback Michael Penix, who finished with 397 yards and four touchdowns. They also talked about the historic game of receiver Ja'Lynn Polk, who caught six passes for 153 yards and three scores, the last one being a 53-yard bomb that looked to put the Spartans away before their furious comeback. After a quick break, talk turned to the defensive side of the ball, and how the Huskies were able to make Michigan State go one-dimensional due to their need to score a lot of points quickly. Credit is due to MSU quarterback Payton Thorne, who passed for over 160 yards in the fourth quarter alone, but the Huskies were able to find sudden-change plays when they needed them most to keep the visitors at bay. To finish the podcast, Scott provided a quick update on the recruits that were at the game, including some on official visits and a host of others that were visiting from out of state. There were a number of committed prospects at Husky Stadium, including Anthony James, Zachary Henning, Kahlee Tafai, Diesel Gordon, and others. And then the three gave their final thoughts on what they saw, including what the win means in the short term, as well as how it might play longer term in recruiting and also with the culture piece that Kalen DeBoer and his staff are in the middle of rebuilding. Trust and belief were two words DeBoer used a lot in his post-game press conference.

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Scott Eklund - give their final thoughts ahead of Washington's next game, and this one is a big one. They are hosting the No. 9/11 Michigan State Spartans, with a start time of 4:30 pm Saturday afternoon. There are a ton of storylines going into this game, including which streak is going to be broken; UW's 21-year winless streak when trying to beat a Power-5 non-conference opponent at home, or MSU's decades-long streak of losing games on the west coast. Starting with UW's defense, how are the Huskies going to win the game when their secondary is so thin? Jordan Perryman is not expected to play, and others on that side of the ball may not be available. But Julius Irvin has steadied things at cornerback a little bit but that group will have their hands full against a big, physical group of Spartan receivers. And have the Huskies held some things back specifically for this game? Did they treat the first two opponents - Kent State and Portland State - as 'preseason' opponents? Have they kept some things in their pocket, especially on defense, to try and get MSU off-balance on offense? A big key to the game for the Huskies is going to be how well they contain the Spartans on the ground, and will that allow them to pin their ears back and get after MSU QB Payton Thorne. And is there a chance one of these teams 'shreds' the other via the pass? And what will the UW RBs do against a pesky Michigan State run defense? After a quick break to pay some bills, the guys continue to talk about Washington's offense, namely Michael Penix, Jr. and what he might do against the Spartans. They talk about Penix's history against the Spartans when he played at Indiana, and also about the UW receivers that could play a huge role in helping the Huskies try and pull the upset. To finish up, Scott gives a recruiting update, and Washington has targeted this game specifically in terms of bringing in a couple of top targets in for official visits, as well as a bunch of committed players and top local prospects for the 2024 and 2025 recruiting classes. UW won't roll out the recruiting red carpet often during the season, but this game demanded it. Kim, Chris, and Scott then give their final thoughts, including a note for fans driving to the game; WATCH OUT FOR I-405.

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, Scott Eklund, and Josh Wodka - gathered together after Washington's 52-6 win over Portland State Saturday afternoon and broke down all the relevant storylines. Obviously to start, it was a game where offensive efficiency ruled the day. Michael Penix, Jr. went 20-27 for 337 yards and two touchdowns, highlighted by an 84-yard pitch and catch to Jalen McMillan. The Huskies balanced out their passing attack with 241 yards on the ground, something they needed to show. The receivers did their part too, despite not having Rome Odunze, who Kalen DeBoer said could have been used in an emergency but there was no need to rush him back from whatever niggle was ailing him. The talk then moved to the defensive side of the ball, where a lot of good things happened for the Huskies en route to holding Portland State to 130 total yards, including 50 through the air. They kept mobile QB Dante Chachere to 6-17 passing and 5 net yards on 7 carries. But there were some issues the defense will have to address, namely the number of bodies they'll have available at cornerback for the Michigan State game, and also some sloppiness that led to some unforced penalties. To wrap up the recap, they talked about the availability for the guys that didn't play, like Odunze, Jaxson Kirkland, and Jordan Perryman, as well as DeBoer's announcement that safety Vincent Nunley is likely done for the season after being seen on the sidelines on crutches.

We all know what happened the last time Washington hosted a Big Sky opponent and it wasn't pretty. The Dawgman guys asked some of the players and coaches about guarding against letting up or mentally assuming they've already won the game before it has started simply because UW is from the FBS and Portland State is from the FCS.

The second part had to do with the conversations that revolved around the players and what they felt went right against Kent State, what went wrong against the Golden Flashes, and how to make sure they took advantage of the fact that the greatest improvement for a team in college football takes place between week one and week two. After a quick break to pay some bills, the Dawgman guys wrap it up with their thoughts after speaking this week with some of the Washington coaches, and how they felt like their respective position groups fared during the Kent State win, as well as what they need to work on to make sure their '1-0' mentality continues to reap rewards this coming weekend.

A year later, and the result is much more pleasing to the eye if you're a Washington Football fan. Instead of losing to FCS foe Montana, the Huskies took care of expected MAC power Kent State to the tune of 45 to 20 Saturday night at Husky Stadium, probably exceeding exceptions for many UW fans in general, but maybe coming up short in certain areas of the game if you asked other fans. And it's probably what you would expect for a typical week one game.  The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Scott Eklund - burned the midnight oil and then some to offer their takes on Washington's win, starting first with the overall play of the revamped offense under new OC Ryan Grubb and led on the field by Indiana transfer Michael Penix Jr. Penix went 26-39 for 345 yards and four touchdowns in just a little more than three quarters of play. Was Penix's night the best debut for a quarterback in UW history? We'd have to go back to really look at the statistics for the others, and if it isn't the best, it has to be right up there. The rest of the podcast was a bit scattershot, but we go through the relevant team and individual stats, as well as some of the bigger highlights of the game, starting with Asa Turner's interception on the very first play of the 2022 season. Overall, Turner finished with two picks. We also talk about the two early fourth down plays, the one that ended up being a 28-yard touchdown for Virginia transfer Wayne Taulapapa and one that looked like DeBoer was going to call off but Penix eventually snuck for a first down. On the other side of the ball, the Washington front did a tremendous job limiting the effectiveness of Kent State's 'FlashFAST' offense, but could have done an even better job if they had been able to corral KSU QB Collin Schlee more than once. In the end we give our final thoughts on the night and talk a little bit about the bigger picture for DeBoer and the Huskies moving forward, as well as talk about some of the recruits we saw on the sidelines. The big recruiting weekend coming up for Washington will be when they host Michigan State on the weekend of September 17.

In the first segment, they break down the offense, starting with the quarterbacks and running backs. Kim has a little different thought than the other two when it comes to leading the show on that side of the ball. Do you agree with him? They also talk about the revamped offensive line with Jaxson Kirkland having to sit out. Chris has a bit of a take on why Roger Rosengarten is starting at right tackle, and it may have something to do with who UW's quarterback is. After a quick break, the talk turns to the defense, and they will have their hands full with Kent State's 'FlashFAST' offense, one that ran over 1050 plays last year and averaged more yards per play than Alabama. The Huskies will be unveiling a scheme that may look similar to the nickel defense run by Jimmy Lake and Bob Gregory last season, but they are going to go about their business in a different way. They guys talk about the impact they expect transfer CB Jordan Perryman will make, as well as a new-look linebacking corps. Cam Bright has certainly made an impact, but Alphonzo Tuputala beating out Carson Bruener at MIK caught some off guard too. After talking about the defensive line and the impressive group of edge players the Huskies will roll out tonight, the guys take another quick break before giving their final thoughts on the game and Scott also throws out a little bit of a recruiting update as UW targets their game versus Michigan State as their next big visit weekend.

The first part of the podcast had to do with what we heard on Monday from UW Head Coach Kalen DeBoer and the coordinators, with some specific discussion regarding their decision to have no full-time position coaches in the booth from the defensive side of the ball. Some of that has to do with special teams, but it also mirrors what both Chuck Morrell and William Inge want to get done during the game. Ryan Grubb will be up in the booth calling plays for the offense. After the first break, the talk goes to Tuesday's media availability. That meant some discussion from the players, including the first injured player we've ever been able to speak to during a game week, Edefuan Ulofoshio. He talked about what he's going to be doing on Saturday. Could he end up in the booth Saturday night? Also went in-depth on our conversation with left guard Nate Kalepo, who will be starting his first game ever in the Purple and Gold in a couple of days. And there was also some talk on another offensive lineman who will be making his first start too, right tackle Roger Rosengarten. Kim asked; who will end up grading higher after the game - Kalepo or Rosengarten? After the final break, the discussion moved to the coaches that we spoke to on Wednesday - JaMarcus Shephard, Scott Huff, Inoke Breckterfield, Eric Schmidt, and Julius Brown. They talked about the new players that will be starting Saturday for them, trying to defend a potent Kent State offense, and a lot more - including what to make of seeing an 'OR' next to the starting punter.

The first day in full pads during fall camp is always a must-see event. The energy is bumped up just a little bit extra, and the hitting starts to really take place in earnest. But all it takes is someone getting hurt to put a pall on proceedings, and that's what happened Wednesday during Day Six of Washington's fall camp. During a red zone team period, Ulumoo Ale got hit and went down, suffering an injury to his left leg. The drill had to be moved to the other end of the field while the trainers attended to Ale, who eventually had to be carted off. The injury put a big damper on the rest of the practice, as it was clear it took a minute or two for the players to shake off the shock. The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Scott Eklund - talk briefly about the injury, and we won't know more about Ale's status until Saturday at the earliest because that's the next time the media speaks to head coach Kalen DeBoer. The guys also touch on the quarterback competition, and it was a day where all three quarterbacks - Michael Penix, Jr., Dylan Morris, and Sam Huard - all had moments finding the end zone, both during regular team periods and during red zone-specific periods. After a quick break, the talk turns to the other side of the ball, where the discussion moves specifically to the defensive backs, and even more specifically on Elijah Jackson and Davon Banks. Can they break through and push Jordan Perryman and Mishael Powell? Going back to the offensive side, the receivers get their due, specifically Lonyatta Alexander and Ja'Lynn Polk. Who is going to be UW's third receiver, with Jalen McMillan in the slot and Rome Odunze out wide? And who is the best in the room going after 50/50 balls? And where does Giles Jackson fit in all this? After the final break the guys talk about the other group currently standing out, the EDGE players, and also talked about the interactions they had with some of the offensive players and coaches after practice - namely Scott Huff, Nick Sheridan, Giles Jackson, Henry Bainivalu, Richard Newton, Dylan Morris, and Sam Huard.

Tuesday was Day Five of Washington's Fall Camp, and the guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Scott Eklund - went through everything that they saw, including a ho-hum first half of practice, followed by fireworks during the second half. The second half finally got to some situational team stuff, including the first 2-minute drill we've gotten a chance to see, and it was very revealing. Michael Penix, Jr. led the offense to touchdowns on two drives, the second one with 12 seconds to go during a 2-minute drill. After the quarterback talk, the guys move to the other side of the ball and give some much-needed love to the EDGE players, who have been killing it so far. The talk specifically revolves around Sav'ell Smalls and Zion Tupuola-Fetui. They move back to the offense and talk a little bit about Aaron Dumas getting some more reps and how consistent Sam Adams has looked so far through five practices. After one final break, the talk moves to the many guests that were at practice today. There were a number of former Huskies, including Micah Hatchie and Coach Dick Baird, as well as former Dawgs who now are scouting in the NFL: Cary Conklin and Mark Bruener. The guys then talk briefly about the women that have been at some of the early practices. There have been multiple referees that have taken part, and a female scout for the New York Giants was spotted on the sidelines today.

The Washington Huskies never went through back-to-back practices during the spring, so it was understandable to see some guys starting to struggle just a little bit after the end of their fourth-straight practice, under beautiful Seattle summer skies on Sunday as the Blue Angels flew overhead. The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, Scott Eklund, and former intern Jack McCauley - got together after the practice to rehash what UW Head Coach Kalen DeBoer talked about after practice, as well as how certain players and positions stood out. DeBoer singled out Giles Jackson on offense and Davon Banks on defense as guys that have stood out to him, but there was also a lot of talk between the guys on what the offense didn't do well on Sunday, and that's catch the ball. Almost every skill position group on offense suffered from the drops, and that really hurt the offense's chance to take advantage of some plays where they could have really gashed the defense. After a quick break, the crew talks about the EDGE group, another position group DeBoer has been highly impressed with so far this fall. They also talk a little bit more about the quarterback battle. Did Sunday's practice move the needle in terms of anyone taking a step forward or back? They also talk about a couple of other defensive backs that have impressed them, namely Jordan Perryman and Dominique Hampton. After the final break, the guys provide their final thoughts before Monday's day off, as well as Jack gets a chance to preview a podcast he recorded with Intern Emeritus Luke Mounger a few days ago where they give their thoughts on what they want to see during fall camp.

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds and Chris Fetters - broke down what they saw from a spirited Saturday practice at Husky Stadium, a Chamber of Commerce day where the coaches set the tone vocally and by the end the defense responded by making big plays. The guys on the defensive side included cornerback Jordan Perryman, DL Voi Tunuufi, LB Kris Moll and Daniel Heimuli, and EDGE players Bralen Trice, Zion Tupuola-Fetui, and Maurice Heims. In the first part of the pod, the guys break down the quarterback battle and where it stands. Is the job Michael Penix's to lose? Each quarterback - Penix, Dylan Morris, and Sam Huard - have had a day where they have been the one to shine. Day One it was Penix, followed by Huard, and then today it was Dylan Morris. The sophomore had a number of strong plays, including strikes to Ja'Lynn Polk, Devin Culp and Jack Westover that showed Morris has everything physically it takes to handle the job. But not one of the quarterbacks looked great during the final team period, the first one during fall camp with referees, chain gang, the whole thing. The defense shut them down every time. So is it a matter of Penix just maintaining a slender lead while all three continue to split reps? Or have Morris and Huard made gains on the former Indiana star? After a quick break, Grinolds and Fetters break down what they saw from the receivers, running backs, and tight ends. And then they provide their final thoughts on another day bathed in beautiful Pacific Northwest sunshine.

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, Scott Eklund, and intern Josh Wodka - recapped an interesting Day Two of Washington's fall training camp under sunny fall skies. Again without full pads - they won't do that for a couple more days - there was still a lot of reps being run when the team was split into two groups. The first and second teams stayed in Husky Stadium while the rest of the team went to the east field. The talk starts with, as you would expect, the quarterbacks. What you might not expect is that it wasn't Michael Penix, Jr. who stood out. Sam Huard had arguably a better day, but wasn't without a miscue or two. We expect to see more of Dylan Morris Saturday as the coaches continue to cycle through the reps to make sure all three quarterbacks get an even share with the first team. Talk then moved to the defensive backs, with specific mention to Jordan Perryman, Davon Banks, Asa Turner, and Dominique Hampton. After a quick break, the crew finish up the podcast with thoughts gleaned from their conversations with the defensive coaches and players they spoke to, namely William Inge, Chuck Morrell, Alex Cook, Asa Turner, Elijah Jackson, Ulumoo Ale, Jordan Perryman, and Alphonzo Tuputala. And then each of us rounds out the pod with our thoughts on what we saw and some overall observations too.

It wasn't exactly clear skies and 90 degrees in Seattle today, but the heat was sufficiently turned on at Husky Stadium, where the Washington football team gathered for their first practice of fall camp. The first practice is always the one that will generate the most hot takes and overreactions, and this year was no different. The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, Scott Eklund, and new intern Josh Wodka - put all their thoughts out there after watching the Huskies run around for a couple of hours and hearing UW Head Coach Kalen DeBoer break down the day and also take questions from the media. Of course the discussion started around the quarterbacks and the battle between Michael Penix, Jr., Dylan Morris, and Sam Huard. At least one of the Dawgman guys thinks the job is already Penix's to lose, but will he stay around longer than a year if he gets done what he came to Seattle to do? The talk then moved to two of the more interesting players out there on the offensive side of the ball, starting with receiver Giles Jackson. Jackson and Morris had some telepathy going on the field, as the former Michigan transfer was catching passes all over the field. And the offensive coaches wasted no time in trying to get the new running backs up to speed. Wayne Taulapapa was the first running back out there, followed closely by Will Nixon. Nixon is listed as a running back/receiver on the official roster, but he played just running back today and looked the part. After a quick break, the talk turned to the offensive line, and there was plenty to talk about with that group. Jaxson Kirkland is the biggest storyline, literally, while Roger Rosengarten got all the first-team reps at right tackle. Victor Curne has moved back out to right tackle, while Matteo Mele was the player getting reps behind center Corey Luciano, and Geirean Hatchett was back at right guard behind Henry Bainivalu. So how much of that movement on the right side of the line was due to an improvement in Bainivalu's health? How much of it was recognizing Curne should be back outside? How much of it was determining Rosengarten was the one that really won the right tackle job out of spring instead of Mele? As I said, it's easy to jump to conclusions and overreact after Day One, but a lot of questions still need to get answered when it comes to Washington's offensive line. Switching lines, we talk about Ulumoo Ale's day, and not just inside at defensive tackle. He's also being used as the main guard in the shield on punt coverage, which is interesting. Before hitting another quick break, the guys talk about what they saw with the EDGE players and defensive backs, and whether or not they think Asa Turner is a shoo-in at safety. Back from break, they finish off the recap podcast talking about today's featured post-practice speaker, former UW linebacker Keishawn Bierria, and Scott provides a quick recruiting recap on a prospect that may or may not commit to Washington at some point here. Jordan Sanford was supposed to announce his verbal commitment today but hasn't so far. Is he having second thoughts? We talk about it. And then we finish up with final thoughts and a reminder to all that we're running a fantastic promotion to go along with the start of fall camp; FIFTY percent off a yearly subscription and monthly users can use this promotion to upgrade if they want to!

And just how tenuous is UCLA's move to the Big Ten? Could the UC system throw a wrench in the works? Just follow the money. After a quick break, we talk more about Pac-12 Media Day, namely Kliavkoff's thoughts about NIL, pay-for-play, and what that means for the student-athletes participating in the non-revenue sports. We talk for a bit about UW's NIL program, namely the recent Dawg Derby.

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Scott Eklund - had a ton to talk about, especially after Washington's joint statement Friday morning about UCLA and USC defecting to the Big Ten.  Will Washington get a chance to bolt too? Can they do it with or without Oregon? In the first part of the nearly hour-long podcast, they talk about the ramifications of losing the LA schools and what could happen in the near term for Washington athletics. After a break to pay some bills, they jump right into the more positive news; Washington's recent football recruiting. The Huskies picked up a verbal commitment from Fairfield (Calif.) Rodriguez cornerback Leroy Bryant Friday afternoon, the 16th public verbal commit for the 2023 recruiting class. They also talk about the last two offensive line commits in Menlo-Atherton's Soane Faasolo and Ferndale's Landen Hatchett. Faasolo, at 6-foot-9, represents Washington's desire to get longer with their offensive linemen. The guys also talk about Hatchett, a UW legacy (his brother Geirean is a current Husky OL) and his comparison to another local offensive lineman in Micah Banuelos, and the plan laid out by the UW coaches that eventually turned the tide for Hatchett. After another quick break, the podcast finishes with arguably the most important recent commitment for UW, and that's quarterback Lincoln Kienholz from Pierre, SD. What are his strengths and what are the Huskies getting with Kienholz? How does he differ from Avery Johnson, the other 2023 quarterback prospect looking heavily at UW before Kienholz's public commitment? The guys wrap up the podcast with their final recruiting thoughts as we move into July. That's normally the month the coaches take time away from Montlake to go on holiday and spend time with their families before fall camp begins in August. But could UW fans see some more verbal commitments take place before the coaches leave town? And finally, we have another promotion that we think you will love: TWO MONTHS for just ONE DOLLAR.

And there was a lot to talk about. To start with, they spoke on the three players that have just left the program - Jordan Lolohea, Draco Bynum, and Emeka Megwa - and that talk turned to a conversation that revolved around a revamped running backs room and what should UW fans expect from that position? After a quick break, the guys talked about Jaxson Kirkland's waiver to come back and play his last season at UW accepted by the NCAA, and how will that move will impact the Washington offensive line in the fall. And could the line look different depending on if the Huskies use a right-handed quarterback or a left-handed quarterback? And could the receivers group actually end up becoming the group that gets highlighted and produces the most out of all the offensive positions? Talk turned to men's basketball, specifically the recruitment of Kentucky transfer Keion Brooks and what UW fans should expect from Isaiah Stewart's former prep teammate at La Lumiere. If you want a more in-depth conversation surrounding the remaking of Washington's roster ahead of the 2022-23 season, Fetters spoke with Head of Hoops Aaron Beach to get his thoughts and they do a deep dive here.  And finally, Kim and Scott go deep into Washington's recruiting schedule for the month of June, starting with this weekend's slate of camps and UW's 7-on-7 tournament, which takes place on Sunday.

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Scott Eklund - met up in the tunnel at Husky Stadium to give their initial impressions of Washington's fifteenth - and final - practice of spring football, held Saturday afternoon. Early rain gave way to sunny skies, as the Huskies were able to go through a 70-80 play 'scrimmage' with scoring rules to simulate as much of a game environment as they could. A Michael Penix, Jr. pass to Rome Odunze proved to the be the difference in the 'game' as the offense came back on the final series to beat the defense. Grinolds, Fetters, and Eklund went through each position group, starting with the quarterbacks, and gave not just their impressions from the day, but also overall how they looked, what went right, what went wrong, and a quick look ahead toward the fall. After doing that for the offense, they did the same for the defensive side of the ball after a quick break. Mishael Powell and Alex Cook were the two defensive players that came up with interceptions during the scrimmage. They broke down who they felt stepped up Saturday, as well as throughout spring. There were some veteran named that popped up, but also a few that definitely surprised over the course of April. There was also plenty going on with recruiting during the spring preview, and the guys touched on some of the main names that were seen at Husky Stadium.

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds and Chris Fetters - were on campus for Washington's final practice ahead of their Saturday Spring Preview, and there really wasn't much to talk about with regard to the practice itself as the team was in shells and shorts and focusing mainly on special teams. But there is still a ton to talk about, and the guys started the first segment of the podcast going over some of the things they talked about with the coaches and players they met up with after practice. It was the offensive coaches and players available to the media today, so we spoke with Ryan Grubb, Scott Huff, Michael Penix, Jr., Sam Huard, and Henry Bainivalu about spring, the NFL Draft, the QB competition, and Bainivalu's brush with a recent accident involving a Seattle Sounders beat writer that saw the UW right guard help nab a hit-and-run suspect and get some Champions League final tickets in return. And then there's talk of 'Fumble Island'. What the hell is Fumble Island? We explain. After a minute to pay some bills, the guys come back with a lot more draft talk. Is Trent McDuffie the only surefire first-round Dawg taken tonight? Is there a chance Kyler Gordon could join him? Then we finish the podcast off talking about the transfer portal, how busy it could be in the coming days because of the May 1 deadline, and whether or not we believe in the 'mass exodus' talk being thrown around other Pac-12 message boards. Lastly, it's all about UW Hoops. The Wednesday signing of former Oregon center Franck Kepnang means the coaches are one piece closer to getting their roster balanced for the 2022-23 season.

The transfer portal has become an ever-present fact of life when it comes to college sports; even when you think things are settled down and everyone has found their place, it can all change in an instant. That's just the way things are nowadays. So it wasn't that unusual to see former walk-on players Kasen Kinchen and Meki Pei decide to move on in the hopes they can earn a scholarship somewhere else. That makes sense. But when a basketball player like Emmitt Matthews, Jr. makes a move into the portal like he did yesterday, those are decisions that seemingly come out of the blue. The guys from Dawgman.com - Chris Fetters and Scott Eklund - delve into a lot of the portal talk in the second half of Tuesday's post-practice podcast. To start with, they talk about Day 13's full-pads practice, the last one they'll be having before Saturday's Spring Preview at Husky Stadium. They talk about the players they saw mixed in with the ones and twos during the team session the media was able to see on Tuesday. After a quick break, it's all about the portal and how things should really heat up around Montlake because the deadline to put your name in the portal if you plan on playing this fall is this Sunday. That means any Washington players that want to put their names in after the spring preview will have roughly 24 hours to do so. Is that enough time to come to a big decision like that? And how behind the 8-ball does that put the northern schools and the ones that push back their springs because of weather and the like? Both Chris and Scott talk about what they expect to see from the portal this week, and how it could just a couple of names, or how it could be a lot more than that, depending on the conversations the players are having with the coaches, their families, and their own support staff. This is just a reality of the portal, and the players can take their names out of the portal just as quickly as they put their names in, so good luck trying to make heads or tails of it moving forward. The guys also talk about some of the post-practice interviews they were able to conduct, namely Scott's question to co-DC Chuck Morrell about how far along he feels the defense is at this point. Morrell also names some names when it comes to players that have pleasantly surprised him and have gotten more turns than he was initially expecting to see. Learn more about your ad choices.

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Scott Eklund - wrapped up their first full viewing of a practice this spring, as up to 500 Washington fans joined them to check out what the Huskies have been up to so far in April. It was a normal two-hour practice, full of individual periods, some team periods, some one-on-one and 7-on-7 work, special teams, and more. So the fans that did show up this morning got a great sense of all the different items the coaches stress and work on to get the players as ready as they can for the summer player-run workouts. It's a relatively quick podcast today, around 20 minutes, because it was more of highlighting the players that did well and stood out during the team sessions. Julius Irvin was the lone turnover king today with an interception (Ruperake Fuavai looked like he recovered a fumble as well), while Michael Penix, Jr. and Dylan Morris combined for three touchdowns during their drives in the final team period of practice. Penix hit Giles Jackson twice on scores, one from 5-yards out, and the other from 20, while Morris hit a streaking Nick Juran down the middle of the field for 46 yards. Washington Head Coach Kalen DeBoer singled out the receivers and EDGE players Friday when he spoke to the media, and both position groups definitely had their moments today during the team periods. The Dawgman guys talk about their days, as well as offer some more color and insight as to how the practice went for those Washington fans that were unable to attend. It was also the same day the Huskies were hosting their coaches clinic for the high school staffs to come in and see what the new UW staff is all about, so there were plenty of high school coaches and recruits on hand to watch practice under sunny skies at Husky Stadium.

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Scott Eklund - wrap up their thoughts now that the Washington Huskies are 10 April practices in. With only 15 practices in total, that means the Dawgs are now two-thirds of the way through spring ball. Where did the time go? Starting with the quarterback competition, the guys talk about who they think is leading the pack, as well as how they expect things could shake out as the battle continues to be joined. They also talk about the running backs. For a position that has seen very little go on from the media standpoint, there certainly has been a ton of player movement. Emeka Megwa has been out all of spring, and Caleb Berry has just started to come back. Cameron Davis and Richard Newton have not been practicing either, so at this point the only scholarship running backs that have played spring at 100 percent health are New Mexico transfer Aaron Dumas, and Jay'Veon Sunday. The guys got a chance to speak with both UW OC Ryan Grubb and RB Coach Lee Marks to break down what they see in the two incoming transfer running backs; Virginia's Wayne Taulapapa and Nebraska's Will Nixon. Clearly with three transfer running backs in before the start of the 2022 season, an already loaded room will undoubtedly suffer attrition of some sort. What the numbers will be and who those players are is anyone's guess at this point. Chris broke down who he saw playing with the two-deeps on defense during the limited 11-11 session the media gets to see, and with a few players that weren't spotted in there, like Jordan Perryman and Carson Bruener (both were practicing), it's hard to know if they are still cycling players through to get turns put on film, or if there's something else going on. After a quick break to pay some bills, the talk turned to recruiting and who was at practice today. The Huskies also had a couple of draft hopefuls on hand in Cade Otton and Luke Wattenberg. The guys also provide some insight into some of the interviews they did post-practice. Not only did they speak to Grubb and Marks, but they also talked with Dylan Morris, Ja'Lynn Polk, Roger Rosengarten, Troy Fautanu, and others.
