The Morning Haul: 11/1


Good morning! It is seriously November. I hope everyone had an enjoyable midweek Halloween, and whether or not you’re ready for it, welcome to the beginning of the holiday season. Now that Halloween is past, it is officially acceptable for every store to sell Christmas themed goods, for holiday foods and drinks to pop up, and for advertisements to use the holidays as a theme. Now, most reasonable people will wait until after Thanksgiving has passed to really start putting up decorations and pulling out traditions, we will all be whacked over the head with the seasonal joy. But it isn’t so bad, husky basketball and football will both be in full swing for most of November, and that is just terrific.

Stories Especially Worth Reading:

Also, a look at Washington’s recent trend, or blind coincidence, towards winning close football games.

Not specifically related to Washington hoops, but still important to keep in mind: Kyle Anderson, the highly touted freshman, has been cleared by the NCAA to play this year, so UCLA is at least partially for real. They’re still waiting on the NCAA investigation into Shabazz Muhammad.
