I just saw this quote on SB's Dawg Pound website: "The Huskies were one of the first power five schools to recruit Fultz ... ."

Does anyone know what the puppies consider themselves to be a part of when they use the term "power five schools"? I first thought it must be the powerful public schools on the west side: UW, WSU (Vancouver campus), Seattle U, Evergreen State, and Central Washington (Des Moines campus). Or perhaps it refers to the five King County powerhouses: UW, Seattle U, Central Washington (Des Moines campus), Seattle Pacific University, and the Art Institute of Seattle. Or maybe it's a reference to what they consider to be the five most powerful basketball teams that have the husky as a mascot:UW, UConn, Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania, Michigan Technological University, and St. Cloud State University.

Perhaps someone on the Board can solve this mystery for me?

Now that the original question has been answered, can we hijack this thread and turn it into a 'My Personal Power 5 Schools' thread? :D

I'll start, my Power 5 for various reasons are:

1)Gonzaga University
2)College of the Holy Cross
3)Seattle University
4)Loyola University Chicago
5)Georgetown University

Pardon my digression.....dog days of summer and all that.
