The good, the bad & the unknown: Idaho

Almost all good in Washington’s destruction of the Vandals. The Good The opening - This one was over in about the first two plays. Hell of a hit by Budda Baker on the opening kickoff and a nice on-the-run play from Jake Browning to Dante Pettis. Kick team - Speaking of that first play, the kick team looks nasty this season and should make a big play or two this season in big...

Struggling Portland St. faces Washington

A year ago, Portland State became just the third program in FCS history to defeat two FBS opponents in a single season. Following a disastrous performance in its first such matchup of 2016, an 0-2 record against the higher division is looking likely with Saturday night's visit to Washington, the eighth-ranked team in the FBS. The Vikings were the darlings of the FCS in 2015, knocking...

No. 8 Washington giving up very little on defense in 2 games

SEATTLE (AP) Before sending too much praise in the direction of No. 8 Washington and what the Huskies have done defensively through two games, there needs to be a disclaimer. Facing Rutgers and Idaho to open the season is far from a daunting task. But for those two games, the Huskies are getting what was expected from their defense. While plenty of reserves have been rotated through...

Stuff and Shenanigans: Idaho? No, U-da-ho.

The second installment: Potatoes, Mulan, and checking in on Deontae Cooper. For me, this week began with a dream wherein Myles Gaskin and Jake Browning lost a fight with a grizzly bear in Leavenworth. Now, I know that is a ridiculous scenario. Grizzly bears don’t live that far southwest. Though if that’s supposed to be some sort of premonition, I’m glad the Dawgs didn’t...

Grading the Game: Idaho

He finished the day 23/28 for 294 yards and tied a school record, with five passing touchdowns and did it all in one half plus one drive in the third quarter. The sophomore quarterback was...

With highest ranking in 15 years, No. 8 Huskies host Vandals

SEATTLE (AP) Chris Petersen is at the front of the pack that's wondering whether Washington is really the No. 8 team in the country. ''Talk to me (after) Game 6, and then maybe we'll have another conversation,'' Petersen said this week. ''I didn't even know that until you told me. That's how important it is to me.

WTF happened in the run game?

There seemed to be some blocking issues on runs and short passes. We examine. The Huskies routed Rutgers 48-13 and dominated in every aspect. When a beatdown is delivered, there is always the question of "how could it have been even more of a beatdown?" Most fans felt the running game was not great, and our friends at Dawgman went so far as to give the running backs and OL grades...

The good, the bad, and the unknown: Rutgers

Washington put their much-anticipated season opener away rather quickly. The Good Welcome back, Mr. Ross - We missed John Ross even more than we thought we did (and we missed him a lot). Ross was simply a player Rutgers could not match up with and could have turned in an epic game had the Huskies needed more of him. The defense - The Husky defense kept the bar at the incredibly...

Stuff and Shenanigans: Pilot

In which Browning gives the middle finger to anyone who ever criticized his deep ball. An Eag, a Coug, and a Husky walk into a room and then proceed to do nothing all day but watch football. Two-thirds of that room ended the day happy. And it is under those circumstances that I watched Rutgers get dismantled by Washington, who apparently missed the memo that this was indeed a football...
