Born in Rexburg, ID, raised on Camano Island, a UW Grad, and now a Denver transplant, Randall recently graduated from law school at the University of Denver. He officially became an attorney in December of 2013, and now officially qualifies as the Dawgpound "legal expert." Ask him any legal questions and he'll give you a qualified answers like "it depends," or "maybe." However, those answers will co$t you ...

Game Preview: USC at Washington

23

Saturday, October 13, at 4 pm Pacific Time, the Trojans come to Seattle. It will be a game to remember. Expect to see some serious pass-rush, and some big passing numbers as USC takes on the...

NCAA upholds ruling on Boise State Broncos scholarship sanctions - ESPN

+

Their scholarships are going to be reduced from 85 to 82 for the next two academic years. The infractions case focused on a series of violations involving more than 75 athletes and several men's and women's teams over a five-year period. Violations ranged from recruiting infractions to impermissible transportation and lodging, and prompted the departure of longtime athletic director Gene Bleymaier.

Beano Cook, ESPN commentator and the 'cardinal of college football', dies - ESPN

+

I loved listening to Beano. The guy knew his stuff, and was really a quality guy. He will really be missed.

This is the first interview I've heard from Dex since he's been a Husky. I really like this kid,...

2

This is the first interview I've heard from Dex since he's been a Husky. I really like this kid, and I think he's going to be something special. I'm not biased either ... even though we grew up on the same Island ... and went to the same high school ... 10 years apart from each other. Just listen to this interview. I think you'll like him. He LOVES football.

TCU Horned Frogs quarterback Casey Pachall to leave school - ESPN Dallas

+

This drug problem appears to go pretty deep. Pachall is going to withdraw from school and enter an inpatient facility for 30-60 days, depending on his performance there. The door is still open if Pachall can make a good recovery. We'll see what happens.

Concussions hit home: What the latest research says about brain trauma and young athletes | MLive.com

2

The war against concussions continues. This particular group of studies takes a "totality of blows" approach, saying that though there are many hits in football that do not cause concussions, adding all those hits up over time does damage the brain. Interesting fact from this article: playing a high school football game is the equivalent of being involved in a car crash at 20-30 miles per hour.

Jerry Sandusky sentenced to at least 30 years on child sex abuse charges - ESPN

+

I don't know what exactly to think about this. I doubt he'll live this long in prison, and he won't get parole until the minimum us served ... that's 30 years, but the actual sentence was 30 - 60. I just wonder what kind of closure this actually brings to the families of the victims, and of course the victims themselves ... if any at all.

Beavers must move on without QB Mannion - Pac-12 Blog - ESPN

3

This really sucks for the Beavers. Cody Vaz, Mannion's replacement, is really an unproven commodity. It could be that he is a revelation, and gives the Beaver's what they need to whether the storm ... but he's a junior with only 2 starts under his belt. We'll see what happens.

Gangline Recap Week 6: Tedford's a Happy Happy Man

12

Words cannot describe the emotions found on Tedford's face in this picture. Happiness, relief, disbelief ... you get the point. A win for Cal prolonged, for at least a week, the talk in Berkley of...

Washington at Oregon: Full Preview Time!

9

Oregon has a long and storied history, which begins in 1988, as Duck fans don't have any good memories of the Huskies before that season. In fact, history is irrelevant to this series, and anyone...

Response to Pacific Takes' Roundtable re: Huskies Most Overrated Team In The Conference

Recently, here, there was a conclusion that the Huskies are the most overrated team in the Pac12, this week. The roundtable discussed several different reasons as to why they reached this...

TCU Horned Frogs' QB Casey Pachall arrested on suspicion of DWI - ESPN Dallas

+

Pachall has been suspended indefinitely ... which sucks for the Horned Frogs. All that has been made public so far is that he blew over the 0.8 limit.

Arkansas Razorbacks coach John L. Smith now lists $40.7M in debt - ESPN

+

Good grief! Even though Smith listed $40.7 million, but he racked up more than $15 million last month alone ...

ACC to keep 8-game league football schedule - ESPN

3

It looks like the ACC is taking the low road with this news. Instead of going for a 9-game conference schedule, as originally planned, the conference decided on an 8-game conference sked ... think of your favorite 5 letter word to describe how the conference lacks ... something.

Mike McQueary files defamation suit against Penn State - ESPN

+

Mike McQueary's whistle-blower lawsuit claims his treatment by the university since Sandusky was arrested on child molestation charges in November has caused him distress, anxiety, humiliation and embarrassment. It seeks millions of dollars in damages.

Former Ohio State Buckeyes coach Jim Tressel hired by Ohio TV station - ESPN

+

"Jim's national championships as head football coach at Ohio State and Youngstown State universities are well known to all, but his motivational speeches and best-selling books will be the basis of our [series.]"

Gangline Recap week 5: a forgettable week for sure

2

Do I need to say ouch? Granted one of those losses was Stanford, this was an absolutely horrible showing by our gangline. The three wins were LSU, Oregon, and Oregon State, and of those three wins,...

Pac-12, Big 12 in talks for 7th bowl

+

Apparently the Pac12 and Big12 are in the process of trying to get yet another bowl berth for either conference. This one would place a team from either the Pac12 or the Big12 against the "best" team from a group of five conferences: Big East, Mountain West, Conference USA, Sun Belt and Mid-American Conferences. This deal is getting done to shut up some of the whiners out there who don't belong to an "Automatic Qualifying" conference. This is just adding to the bowl games that are going to decide who's going to "represent" in the new playoff format.

Scooter accident puts UCLA player on IR

+

I couldn't resist posting this ... it's just too funny. Apparently poor Jordan Zumwalt got into an accident on his scooter, and got a bunch of stitches ... so much so that wearing a football helmet is extremely painful.

List of prospects to attend Stanford/UW game

+

Bob Condotta gives a list and a small description about each of the recruits planning to attend the game tonight. I think visiting on a Thursday game is better than a Saturday since, theoretically, the coaches will have more time to spend time with the recruits, which is good for us.

Game Preview: Stanford at Washington

+

The Dawgs and the Card are a close 40-38-4 in a rivalry that more or less started in 1920. The first two games of the series were real barn burners, with Stanford taking the first game 3-0,...

Jerry Sandusky victim has book deal

+

It looks like "victim 1" in the Penn State/Sandusky scandal is no longer going to remain anonymous. He got a book deal and will reveal his identity the date the book is released.

The Penn State Exodus Continues

2

Paul Jones, a QB-turned-TE, is the latest player to bolt Statetown. Make him number 14 in a list that just wont stop growing. He's leaving for what the school says is "personal reasons ..." but that's really just a blanket statement that covers everything including the kitchen sink.

Husker AD Osborne to Step Down

+

The 75-year-old Osborne announced at a news conference Wednesday that he would step down Jan. 1, though he will stay for an additional six months to assist in the transition to a new athletic director.

Harvey Updyke Arrested

+

I couldn't not post this one ... the guy who allegedly poisoned Toomer's Corner oak trees in Auburn was finally arrested and charged with "terrorizing." Apparently the guy is an Alabama football fan, 65 years old, and wanted to take the law into his own hands when a hardware store wouldn't credit him the full $150 for a lawn mower he bought there ... poisoning a historic set of trees seemed right in order ...

Notre Dame and Michigan are no Longer Playing Each Other

8

Looks like this rivalry got the shaft, which is really too bad .. I think. I actually haven't ever paid attention to this game, but ESPN is upset about it ...

Coons to Punt First Against Stanford

5

It looks like Coons won the punting competition over the bye week, and he will punt at least the first time on Thursday. Durkee could also see some time at punter on subsequent punts. I, on the other hand, think that neither of them will be punting this week ...

Gangline Recap Week 4: Can you spare some Change?

4

I thought this helmet was going to be upside down and filled with a bunch of change and dollar bills after CU's game against the Cougs ... guess I was wrong.

Having a Shorter QB Cuts Both Ways

+

This has probably been discussed ad nauseum, but I love it when the weaker half of somebody's argument or stance comes back to bite its prognosticator in the @$$. There's two sides to a line, clearly, and even when just about everybody in the known universe says that a shorter quarterback can't see over his line to find the right passing lanes, most people forget that the defensive line has to see over the offensive line to get to the quarterback. Cowboy defensive end Jason Hatcher referred to Russel Wilson as a "midget." I guess he couldn't come up with anything better as a compliment.
