Good morning, Dawg fans. I hope all of you are recovering after the past three weeks, just like I am sure the team is. It seems like just yesterday that we all had Rose Bowl aspirations and a bright outlook on the season. I’ll continue to say it’s not over, and Sark can still keep his job, but anything less than winning out would make the season a disappointment.
Stories especially worth reading:
Art Thiel doesn’t think the Huskies should continue to play Keith Price if his thumb is bothering him to the point of affecting his play. If you followed us on Twitter during the game, you’ll know Jesse and I agree with him. I believe Cyler Miles is a very capable backup – and future star – and if Price isn’t even near 100 percent, Miles should be taking the snaps.
Here is the Seattle Times’ online tribute to Don James. I was born the year after he retired, so I’ll never be able to fully grasp the impact he had on Husky football and the University of Washington altogether, but my thoughts are with his family nonetheless.
The Huskies will honor James the rest of the season by wearing “DJ” helmet decals the rest of the season, among other things. The public memorial service will take place Sunday at 3 p.m. at Hec Ed.
Head over to UW Dawg Pound to participate in its Don James condolences and memories thread.
