The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

Nothing substantive yet on coaches to fill the final two spots on the Husky staff.

The coaches UW does have, though, are out on the recruiting trail right now before another dead period hits early next week for the annual coaches convention.

And to provide something of an update on UW’s recruiting efforts to date and detail the challenge still ahead in these last four weeks before the Feb. 1 signing day, I wrote this story for today’s paper. Again, this is for the paper and written for a more general audience and I know some of this may be old news to those of you who are more avid fans. I’ll pass along some more detailed quotes from the two recruiting experts quoted in the story in the next day.

Also for today’s paper, I had this story on UW’s 2012 schedule, which also features a poll asking for your vote for Washington’s toughest foe next season.
