Well, yesterday was depressing. I was wrong to give the Huskies a chance. The Ducks beat them badly.
Stories Especially Worth Reading:
The News Tribune asks an extremely relevant questions: Where does Washington go from here?
If you haven’t read enough, here’s a Jerry Brewer story about what another year of humiliation in this rivalry means for the Huskies.
Condotta touches on the struggles of both Keith Price and Austin Seferian-Jenkins. I believe that now, five games into the season, it’s time to starting talking about the fact that Price hasn’t really had a single great game all season. He has played well several times, but there have been no 250+ yard games, no three touchdown performances. The Huskies can’t pass well. Whether that’s due to the offensive line struggling in pass protection, the loss of Aguilar and Kearse hurting more than anyone guessed, or Price himself struggling, it needs to be sorted out soon if Washington is to have a successful season.
Also, a useful position review from Condotta. In a loss like this, it is important to separate the good from the bad, rather than lumping everyone together. As far as bright spots: as I discussed late last night, Shaq Thompson and Bishop Sankey both have given Husky fans a reason to be mildly optimistic.
