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

Dawgman Radio

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.

Dawgman.com's Kim Grinolds was joined this week by WildcatAuthority's Jason Scheer, who gave us some fantastic insight into how the Arizona Wildcats are doing this season and what to expect from the visitors when they travel to Seattle to play Washington on Saturday at Husky Stadium. After a quick UA Hoops update, Kim and Jason get into what has made the offense so good this season in Tucson. Longtime offensive coach Jedd Fisch, who coached at stops that include the Seattle Seahawks, Michigan, UCLA, the Los Angeles Rams, and most recently the New England Patriots, was named Arizona's head coach ahead of the 2021 season. Jason talked about how Fisch has been received so far by the UA faithful. The talk then turns to his offense, led by former Washington State quarterback Jayden de Laura. They talked a moment about de Laura planting the WSU flag in the middle of the field at Husky Stadium after the Cougars defeated the Huskies in the 2021 Apple Cup, and his regret over that decision. Jason also talked about Arizona's offensive skill players, a group that includes one of the best receiving corps in the entire country: Jacob Cowing, Dorian Singer, Tetairoa McMillan, and tight end Tanner McLachlan. And if you are Washington co-Defensive Coordinators William Inge and Chuck Morrell, Jason provides a blueprint he thinks could be successful in slowing the 'Cats down a little bit. They take a quick break after talking about Arizona's offensive line to talk about the other side of the ball. It came as a bit of a surprise to see longtime Pac-12 coach Johnny Nansen take over as UA's defensive coordinator. Jason talks about that move, as well as the fact that the Wildcats will probably show more in terms of scheme than any other team Washington has faced so far this season. He is also quite frank when talking about Arizona's run defense. It's not good, as the 'Cats are giving up nearly 230 yards per game on the ground, and Cal's freshman running Jaydn Ott ran for 274 yards on 19 carries against UA earlier this season. Kim asked Jason what he would do if he was Nansen and tasked with the job of trying to stop Washington Quarterback Michael Penix Jr. Then we hear some final thoughts from Jason on what he expects to happen during the game from an Arizona point of view.

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. To begin the podcast, the guys go over the main storylines, namely the inability of Washington to win at ASU since 2001, the mid-day start and playing in the heat, as well as playing on another grass field. 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.

Dawgman.com's Kim Grinolds spoke this week with SunDevilSource.com's Chris Karpman to find out as much as he could about Washington's next opponent, the Arizona State Sun Devils. To start, they give UW fans an idea of some of the places to go after the game, since it's a 1 pm start. Should it be Mill Ave? Scottsdale? Karpman offers up a few suggestions. Arizona State is going through some chaos at the moment, dealing now with a team without a permanent head coach, as well as an NCAA investigation into alleged recruiting violations. Karpman talks about what it's been like the last 18 months dealing with all the turmoil. And how is the coaching search going to go? Which names would intrigue Karpman in terms of taking ASU to the next level? As for the game itself, they started out at the ASU offense, led by Florida transfer Emory Jones, running back Xazavian Valladay, and receiver Elijhah Badger. Karpman offers up some key offensive line information as far as injuries and who should start against the Huskies. And how comfortable is Karpman with ASU's offense if they need to convert third and medium? After a quick break the talk moves to the defense. Miami transfer DL Nesta Jade Silvera is a name the Washington coaches have already identified as a problem. Does Karpman think the ASU defensive coaches will dial up pressures to get after Michael Penix Jr? And does Karpman think the ASU secondary will go more zone or man against Penix? And finally, if ASU needed to kick a 40+ yard field goal to win the game, how confident is Karpman that the Sun Devils will pull out the win? Grinolds asks Karpman; has he seen visitors struggle from turf to the natural grass of Sun Devil Stadium? And does he think that will factor into the end result of the game Saturday? As far as other intangibles, does Karpman think the game will be well attended? Will the weather impact attendance? He also adds a couple of other game notes that UW fans should take note of.

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 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.

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.

To start, Moore breaks down the Stanford offense, a unit that will be missing its top running back in EJ Smith. But they have added a new wrinkle in the 'slow mesh' RPO that Wake Forest uses, and Moore talked about that. Jackson also goes through the top targets that Stanford quarterback Tanner McKee will lean on to help move the Cardinal offense down the field. Moore also gives his opinion on the position group he feels is holding the offense back. After a quick break, the talk turned to the defense. Stanford did give up 41 points and 505 yards of total offense. Moore talked about the much more publicized change in their defensive scheme from a 3-4 to an even front to help shore up concerns along the defensive line. Jackson mentioned the defensive players UW fans should pay attention to when the Huskies have the ball on offense. Moore also gives a couple of keys on how he thinks Stanford's defense can be beaten (hint: it starts along the line of scrimmage). Moving to special teams, Moore notes a potential dilemma for Stanford; Casey Filkins is considered their best returner, but without EJ Smith, would they risk having Filkins back there since he is also their top available running back? To finish the preview off, Moore talks about a couple of keys for Stanford to be able to pull the victory, as well as what UW could do against the Cardinal to win at home.

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.

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 first part of the show started with Stephen's take on Mel Tucker and how he's been received at MSU after leaving Colorado after only one season in the Pac-12. Then there was a quick take on what Seattle fans might expect with former MSU RB Kenneth Walker when he gets healthy. Talk then turned to the offense and what UW fans should expect to see from the Spartans on that side of the ball, starting with their base scheme and some of the top skill players MSU will use, as well as Stephen's outlook when asked about the Spartans' OL. If it was third and three, would he be more comfortable seeing MSU run it, or throw it? After a quick break, the talk turns to the other side of the ball, and Stephen breaks down MSU's defensive scheme, including the areas where they have tried to improve from last year, especially in the secondary and on the edges of their defensive line. And when talking about special teams, does Michigan State have the kicker they would trust to kick a 52-yarder to win the game? It sounds like their punting game can stand up against anyone in the country. To finish off the preview podcast, Stephen talks about MSU's history going up against Michael Penix and what he thinks is going to happen Saturday at Husky Stadium, as well as his keys to the final result.

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Scott Eklund - got together to hash out some of the main storylines and thoughts that were brought to the fore after talking to the Washington players and coaches earlier this week as preparations continued for UW's Saturday matchup with top-10 Michigan State. Game time is 4:30 pm Saturday afternoon at Husky Stadium, and the game will be shown on ABC. On Monday we spoke with Chuck Morrell, Ryan Grubb, and Kalen DeBoer, and the talk went more to do with general thoughts about the Huskies through the first two games, what they've done well, what they need to work on, and any surprises - like running more wildcat? And are they just showing that to put more on tape for their opponents to prepare for? On Tuesday we spoke with Michael Penix, Jr., Richard Newton, Jack Westover, Jeremiah Martin, Sav'ell Smalls, Carson Bruener, Makell Esteen, and Jaden Green. We focused on those conversations during the next segment. After a quick break, we talk about the conversations we had Wednesday with Lee Marks, JaMarcus Shephard, Inoke Breckterfield, Eric Schmidt, William Inge, and Julius Brown. A lot of good stuff to chew on here. We finish with our final thoughts on what we learned from the players and coaches this week, and the conversation also included a quick recruiting update as the Huskies are expecting to host a few official visitors and a number of committed players.

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.
