This week is a bye week for Husky football. Not only that, but there isn’t a ton to talk about given that the opponent getting two weeks of preparation from the Huskies is Colorado, a team Washington will be expected to best by at least three or four touchdowns. We’ll keep writing about football, certainly, but in preparation for Husky basketball, which quasi-begins with an exhibition against Central Washington on November 6th before officially starting off on the 10th versus Seattle University, we’ll be posting a ton of basketball coverage. Check back over the next two weeks for a piece by piece preview of the team, the schedule, and the conference leading up to the 10th, and thanks for reading.
Stories Especially Worth Reading:
Christian Caple’s Tale of the Tape focuses on Sankey’s huge day and the performance of Hau’oli Kikaha, who had two sacks.
A public memorial for Don James was held at Hec Ed this afternoon, and Gregg Bell has a nice story on the ceremony. I didn’t write much about Coach James this past week, largely because I wasn’t alive to actually witness his coaching career. To wax poetic about his importance would have likely come off as insincere when so many Husky fans have real first-hand experiences and childhood memories associated with the man.
Ted Miller’s latest Pac-12 Bowl Projections have Washington playing in the Las Vegas Bowl for a second straight year. Somehow I doubt that would satisfy the average Washington fan. Or Washington player/coach.
Percy Allen takes a look at the tendency for Oregon basketball coach Dana Altman to accept a well above average number of transfers each year.
