Happy Monday, everyone.
The Huskies hosted their Junior Day on Saturday and coach Chris Petersen offered a scholarship to Shadle Park (Spokane) quarterback Brett Rypien, the nephew of former Washington State quarterback Mark Rypien, the MVP of Super Bowl XXVI for the Washington Redskins.
Brett Rypien has put up some mighty impressive numbers in Shadle Park’s spread offense. Here are his junior year highlights. He also has offers from Boise State, Colorado State, Idaho, Mississippi State, Oregon State and Washington State, and he told Dawgman.com that he wants to wrap up his recruiting by May.
As Petersen said on Signing Day last week, his preference is to have a quarterback in every class. The idea of going into this season with three quarterbacks was “scary,” he said, which is why signing K.J. Carta-Samuels was a priority.

- In another way-too-early poll, the Huskies come in at No. 25 here.
- Great stuff from Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News on the Pac-12’s “Night Game Nightmare.”
- Former Missouri All-American Michael Sam will likely become the first openly gay player in the NFL, and that’s extraordinarily important news.
- Washington State receiver Gabe Marks was arrested over the weekend for fourth-degree assault.
- Arizona State has hired a new defensive coordinator, but Todd Graham will still call the defensive plays.
- The UW men were dealt their worst loss of the season Sunday in Colorado.
- The UW women, meanwhile, pulled off one of their biggest upsets ever in beating No. 3 Stanford.
Also, I was on with KJR’s Mitch Levy this morning, and I’ll post a link to that segment when it becomes available. We talked mostly about the suspensions of Cyler Miles and Damore’ea Stringfellow, and there is no update on that case from county records.
