Lay Off Willingham

haha…just kidding.  I would never support that, but it’s the message that Washington President Mark Emmert is sending to the fans.  I hate to admit it, but he does have a good point about the ridiculousness of their schedule this year.  Starting off the season at top-20 Oregon, hosting top-20 BYU, then hosting top-5 Oklahoma just sucks.  There really isn’t a more eloquent way of putting it.  Even Pete Carroll would have a hard time not going 0-3 against that slate with such a young team.

Luckily, it appears that at least some (most?) Husky fans don’t buy into Tyrone Willingham either.  Being new to the Husky community, I don’t know what their fan websites are.  I don’t exactly have my pulse on the feelings of the fans.  All I know is that at the game this weekend, while sitting in the UW alumni section, no one joined in with me the half-dozen times I started yelling “Fire Ty!”  But after searching around the interweb for a few minutes, I found that blog, and he does a much better job than I pointing out many of UW’s deficiencies.  But there was this little tidbit at the bottom that had me very interested: (after the jump)  Read the rest of this entry »
