Class act

It was nice to see that the crowd was in control all night. Maybe the blowout had something to do with it, but this was a little tamer than a lot of other UW-Oregon games.
Last year, Ernie Kent said that the Dawg Pack, UW’s student section, was an “embarrassment waiting to happen” a few weeks after playing at Washington. He didn’t want to touch the topic when I asked him about it Friday, surely hoping not to inflame any fire, but also saying he thought it was overplayed last year and he considered it a dead issue.
The Dawg Pack seemed ready to get into Kent regarding the rumors concerning his personal life – that’s what the sombreros were for.
But other than that, not much happened. Romar has talked with the Dawg Pack on several occasions about his desire that they stay as classy as possible. I was there in October when the Dawg Pack attended a practice and Romar and Todd Turner each spoke to the Pack, telling the students that they needed to not cross any boundaries.
Sounds like Romar may have talked with the Dawg Pack briefly before this game as well. It’s obviously part of college basketball for student sections to get into the game, but it’s nice when that involvement doesn’t take away from the game.
So far this year, there’s been nothing to write about the Dawg Pack, which is a good thing.
