The Morning Haul 9/27


Good morning! During what amounted to my first actual day of class, now that all of the syllabus combing and name games are over, I took feverish notes, experienced the rush of “I now know everything about everything” college student epiphany, and almost ran into Abdul Gaddy as he was headed out of the lecture hall I was entering. It was a damn good day.

Now, it’s game-day, which means that it is already a much, much better day than yesterday. I will be experiencing my very first home game that is taking place when school is actually in session, which will also unfortunately limit my coverage during and immediately after the game. Expect a post-game story to be up around an hour or two after the game ends, but logistically, actually being a fan at the game will stop me from any sort of halftime analysis or anything like that.

Oh, and here are several picks of the game, and a few other things worth reading.

Stories Especially Worth Reading:

Bob Condotta is picking Washington to lose a low scoring game by a respectable amount.

Todd Dybas of The News Tribune isn’t really picking the game, but he is talking about it.

The Dawg Pound has a great Q&A with Hank Waddles of the “Go Mighty Card” blog.

Also, UW volleyball knocked off the defending national champions, #4 UCLA, in five sets last night in Seattle. Great news for the program.

Okay, so maybe only one of those links is a pick of the game…
