WASHINGTON RUMORS & GOSSIP

Plotting the Learning Curve

How much can we expect the UW sophomores to grow next season? One of the primary criticisms of Lorenzo Romar recently has been that he is no longer able to adequately develop talent. Exhibit A appears to be Nigel Williams-Goss. NWG was clearly a very good player during his 2 years at Washington after joining the program as a McDonalds All-American. This year however, he has become...

Brock Huard: Huskies have good reasons to give Jonathan Smith a co-offensive coordinator

Credit for Washington’s strong 2016 season had as much to do with an improved offense that ranked eighth in the country in scoring as anything. So when the Huskies announced Wednesday that their new wide receivers coach, Matt Lubick, would also share offensive coordinator duties with Jonathan Smith, it was a bit of a head-scratcher. Brock Huard of 710 ESPN Seattle sees several...

Washington Basketball Suspends Malik Dime After Fan Altercation

Malik Dime did what a lot of players wish they could do during a game: he slapped a heckler. Heckling athletes is a tradition that goes back as far as there were athletes to heckle, and like it or not, it isn’t going anywhere. For his actions, the Washington basketball program has suspended Dime indefinitely, and hopes this will be a “valuable teaching moment” for him. The...

Washington Huskies latest “interloper” to fall short vs. college football’s powers

The Washington Huskies were not supposed to beat the Alabama Crimson Tide on New Year’s Eve, and they didn’t. The 24-7 score was more a product of the Tide deciding not to over-exert themselves than UW keeping it close for much of the game. The Huskies scored first in the Peach Bowl matchup, then wouldn’t get on the board again. It’s how Alabama typically does things. You...

Washington State Cougars socks get recalled due to an unfortunate error

A few unlucky Washington State Cougars fans likely received an unpleasant surprise this holiday season when they went to try on their brand new “Cougars” socks. Fans thought they were getting a nice pair of $18 Wazzou-themed ugly Christmas sweater socks, but the stockings were unintentionally ugly for a different reason.

Punchless Washington will see better days ahead after CFB Playoff loss

The unofficial ranking of things that were terrible to start off the 2016 CFB Playoff are as follows: 1. The new Dos Equis guy, who is so terrible he actually makes the beer taste worse by proxy; 2. Washington Huskies offense. The bad news is, Washington’s season is over after gaining a miserable 194 total yards, the first time they’d been held under 270 this season. The previous...

The Alabama defense has done it all year long and late in the second quarter of the Chick-fil-A bowl, they did it again.

Washington State socks recalled after ‘GO DAWGS’ printed on the inside

If you have a Washington State fan in your life, you may have decided to give them a pair of Cougar socks for the holidays (this would be a fairly terrible gift, but that’s not our point here). At the store when you bought these socks, everything would look fairly normal. The school logo is there, the colors are right, so everything would seem to be fine. Except for one problem…...
