"“It’s definitely an economic issue,” Sparling said Tuesday. “We’re fortunate that the University of Washington wants to play us, and also BYU gave us a very good guarantee. There’s no second guessing yourself. You just jump in and walk away with a lot of money.”"
Then, the coach expresses concern over what I take to mean he’s imagining will be horrific losses to the Dawgs and BYU:
"“The biggest thing when you play back-to-back against that caliber of team is you don’t want to get your confidence shaken.”"
What happened to that “any given Sunday” approach to coaching, where even a small D-II team in Ellensburg at least pretended they had a chance against a bigger, stronger foe? I know it’s D-II, but who’s coaching this team, Woody Allen?
Anyhow, this game is ruined for me now. How can I be satisfied with anything less than a 50-point margin of victory for the Dawgs, right?
Hey, thanks for coming!
