It’s 1 in the morning, do you know where the Dawg Pack is?

Leaving Bank of America Arena last night, I ran into members of the Dawg Pack who camped outside the doors for Saturday’s home finale against UCLA. There were about 15-20 tents set up.
Here’s a quick interview with some of UW’s most loyal fans.

The records of both teams suggest this is just an ordinary game, however, the contest takes on added significance because ESPN’s College GameDay crew is making its first appearance in Seattle and has brought its star-studded panel of sportscasters of Rece Davis, Jay Bilas, Hubert Davis, Bobby Knight and Digger Phelps to cover the game.
Washington is asking fans to come out and pack the arena early Saturday morning. Free GameDay t-shirts will be handed out to the first 600 UW students. There are no concessions, however, the school is providing Top Pot donuts on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Admission during the day is free, doors to Edmunson Pavilion open at 6:30 a.m. and SportsCenter will begin drop-ins from Seattle at 7 a.m. The GameDay show begins at 8 a.m.

AND FINALLY, members of the responded to a challenge issued by ESPN’s Rece Davis.
Mr. Davis,
It has come to my attention that you recently presented an open challenge to Washington fans to “do something special”. Husky fans are prepared to give the College Gameday crew an experience they will never forget.
It is recognized by ESPN that Husky Stadium is the loudest venue in college football. The Purple Nation is prepared to extend this recognition to college basketball. We challenge you Rece, to measure the decibel level on the court in Hec Ed Pavilion Saturday night. Husky fans will prove to you and the rest of the nation, that we not only have the best fans in the nation, but the loudest also.
We are PURPLE NATION.
We are THE DAWG PACK.
