Dawg Pack Dirt: Saint Martin’s University

*Editor’s note: This is the first issue of the 2010-2011 Dawg Pack Dirt. The Dirt is now in its seventh season of production and is being put together by a brand new group of Dawg Pack members this year. This is the third generation of Dirt Diggers since the pre-game publication was created by yours truly in 2004.

In years’ past, the Dirt has been recognized by the likes of ESPN The Magazine as one of the premier student-run info sheets in the entire nation. Special thanks to our contributors for making (and keeping) this thing fantastic. Go Dawgs!

  1. Oregon isn’t scoring 100 on the Huskies. I would be shocked if UW doesn’t put up at least 90 on SMU.

  2. Norvel Pelle is going to be at the McNeese State game, make sure the dirt talks about this so we can get the dawg pack to really make him feel wanted and welcome
