The only way to win is to bet on yourself

This is not a one-and done football program at all. Coach Petersen is not playing it safe, nor is he simply replaying the same tune to carry into a five-seven year career for the Washington Football team. He wants to win, repeatedly.

The best way to do that is improve recruiting. Load up on players who fit that new team scheme. Check out that 2018 recruiting class.  Twelve mighty young men who will band together to face the future together. It’s a class still small in number but mighty in talent and passion for the game. The strategy may aim at bigger recruits now, but they are still focused upon players who fit the team culture.

Well played, Coach Petersen, well played

I admire and respect Coach Petersen more and more. He is not scheming to play it safe, or to guarantee long term employment. He is working to compete nationally for a championship. And not in small steps either. He is able to rebuild an entire team, and reformulate the scheme almost instantaneously.

In college, the only true constant is the coaching staff. I am growing more and more confident in the Huskies coaches. This is a team making the right moves to win. Now, following up the success of last year, the team has the opportunity to climb into the national spotlight once more.
