Dawg Pack Dirt: Stanford University

Dawg Pack Dirt: Stanford

Volume 6, Issue 13, January 14, 2010

Special to Seattle Sportsnet

I’m not going to lie. I had to talk myself off of the bridge, too, after the last two weeks. But I was able to convince myself that it’s still early and we still have plenty of home games left to make an impact.

When we’re struggling like this is when we need to impact the game more than ever and create that Hec Ed advantage that has led the Dawgs to wins so many times before. With that being said, onto the Dirt…

The Game:

-Stanford Cardinal at Washington Huskies

-Thursday, January 14, 2010 at 7:30 p.m. PST

The Team:

Stanford is currently 8-7 overall and 2-1 in Pac-10 play. They suffered a loss to California, and beat USC and UCLA.

-If it seems like there isn’t that much dirt for this game, it’s because there isn’t. These kids are boring. That’s why they go to Stanford. Nerds… (*Editor’s note: They might be boring, but they are in desperate need of someone to talk to. You’ll see why as we go along.)

The Coach:

– Head Coach Johnny Dawkins is the legendary former Duke Blue Devil who was a two-time All-American and recipient of the Naismith Award, given to the nation’s best college basketball player. Any hatred towards Duke, which any good American should possess, should be directed towards Mr. Dawkins. Thank you.

The Players:

-#20 F Peter Abraham (Fr.) likely won’t play considering he’s only logged six minutes in four games this year. But I found it funny that Stanford’s official athletic site does not have any biographical information on him. Does anyone know anything about him?

My guess is that Johnny Dawkins himself doesn’t know who this kid is. From his Facebook page I can tell you that he really likes quotes and he’s shooting a blistering 1/1 from beyond the arc, but that’s about it.

-#40 F/C Elliott Bullock (So.) can be reached on his cell phone at [edited for relevance]. Keep it classy as always. He’s only shooting 18% from the field, yet somehow still managing to get almost 10 minutes per game.

-#15 C Matei Daian (So.) doesn’t really have any outstanding dirt, but he’s Romanian so if anyone here knows any Romanian phrases or fun facts, feel free to let them out.

-#32 G Da’Veed Dildy (Jr.) is shooting 10% after 10 attempts from three-point range this year. His name is also a little ridiculous.

-#3 G Chris Ebersole (Sr.) is another person that may or may not actually be on the team. He’s a frickin’ senior and he doesn’t have a bio. Here is Chris, along with teammates Drew Shiller, Landry Fields, and some random guy. Looks like a fun time…

-#2 G/F Landry Fields (Sr.) is good. He’s one of the best players in the Pac-10 so make sure to be talking to him a lot throughout warm-ups and the game. Here he is in a picture that he captioned, “wild, caged animal”.

-#22 G Jarrett Mann (So.) was also generous enough to leave us his phone number. Contact him at [edited for relevance]. I’m told he likes phone calls and texts in the early AM hours.

-#10 G Drew Shiller (Sr.) was one of the mice in the picture with Landry Fields and Chris Ebersole. Here’s a funny video of him getting the crap scared out of him by Landry Fields in a scream mask.

-#50 F Jack Trotter (So.) can also be reached via his cell phone at [edited for relevance]. Seriously, for being smart enough to go to Stanford, these guys sure don’t know anything about not giving their phone numbers to complete strangers… Here he is, dressing like he does every day.

-#45 G Jeremy Green (So.) was suspended from the team in October after being arrested on suspicion of domestic violence and assault in his dorm. He has since been reinstated, and is averaging 17.6 PPG since returning.
