Daniel Te'o-Nesheim

He is Washington's all-time leader in sacks, but Daniel Te'o-Nesheim isn't a big talker. Honestly, it was rare for the local media to get a chance to speak with him, but on Saturday at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, the talented defensive lineman spoke with NorthwestFootball.net's Doug Farrar and he sent us the audio of the interview...

Farrar was nice enough to share his interview with Te'o-Nesheim on Saturday from Indianapolis and here's what the Husky all-time leader in sacks had to say on several subjects...

Husky CB coach Demetrice Martin

On Saturday's show, the Dawgman.com Radio Show on Sports Radio 950 KJR will have Husky CB coach Demetrice Martin and former Husky Matt Rogers on to talk about things.

The conversation with Martin should be interesting as he talks about the reception Washington has received with Los Angeles-area recruits. Martin was the point-man for several of Washington's biggest recruits including Culver City LB Victor Burnett and Crenshaw CB Gregory Ducre.

We will also ask him about the progress of the cornerbacks and how they are coming along during winter workouts.

Rogers was a member of the 2001 Rose Bowl team and was a Top 10 finalist on American Idol a few years ago. He's also the host of the Discovery Channel's "Really Big Things" and CBS's "There Goes the Neighborhood".

If you wish to email Matt a question, feel free to do so at huskystadium@gmail.com.

We'll also be taking your calls on all things recruiting and Husky.

So tune in Saturday from 9 am to 10:45 am to get the scoop!!!

The Dawgpack plans to bring it on Saturday

The Dawgpack Response to Davis' Challenge

Mr. Davis,

It has come to our 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.

Robinson on the move?

Word came down on Friday afternoon that former Husky guard Nate Robinson could be headed to Beantown in a trade from the New York Knicks to the Boston Celtics.

This story from the New York Post indicates that the move is very complicated, but it intimates the move has a lot to do with freeing up playing time for rookie Toney Douglas who has had to share minutes with Robinson.

Last weekend, Robinson won his third-straight "Dunk Contest" and promptly announced his retirement from the competition once he received his award.

Savannah denied sixth-year by NCAA

Savannah denied 6th-year of eligibility by NCAA

Word came down on Tuesday that Husky senior LB E.J. Savannah's appeal to the NCAA for a sixth-year have been denied.

Savannah was one of the top recruits who signed with Washington in then head coach Tyrone Willingham's first recruiting class back in 2005, but to say his stay on Montlake was tumultuous would be an understatement.

After redshirting in 2005, Savannah played in nine of Washington's 12 games as a redshirt freshman in 2006 and then started 10 of the Huskies' 13 games in 2007, finishing fifth in the conference with 111 tackles.

Willingham and Savannah were at logger-heads during the spring and summer of 2008 and Savannah was dismissed by the soon-to-be-fired Willingham during the first month of the season.

Savannah stayed enrolled at Washington and was re-instated by new head coach Steve Sarkisian and earned his starting spot back for the 2009 season and finished with 43 tackles while playing in seven games, missing five due to various injuries (foot and hand).

The Bellevue-native finished his career at Washington with 176 tackles, 16.5 tackles-for-loss, two sacks and one interception while playing in 29 games in his four-year career.
