Oh brother, Ryan Leaf, the former great WSU quarterback has predicted the Huskies to go 12-0? I do not which I did not see coming more … a Cougar writing that, or it concerning “the-mistake-by-the-Lake?”
I will let you read his reasons why in the link above, but I thought this would be a ponder-point to howl about on a Saturday. I just checked the Washington Football Schedule and I am predicting the Huskies to finish 8-4 in the regular season. I see the reasons for optimism, and while the recruiting for them has not be stellar recently–that component really doesn’t show up for another year or two.
Please post your thoughts about this article here on FishDuck, in the comments below. I will not be responding on other sites, as I need to keep things a bit active on FishDuck. Thank you!
Right now they do have about half the squad at 4/5-Star players on Rivals, and thus have the potential to be quite good. But they are reliant on primarily tight-ends to be the major pass-receivers, especially since so many wide receivers have transferred out in the off-season. I also do not have confidence in their offensive coordinator; if current Oregon State Head Coach Jonathan Smith was still in Seattle as OC–I would be very concerned.
Thank goodness Jimmy Lake is not as good at recruiting coaches as Mario Cristobal is! The game in Seattle will be epic, as both sides love to hate their rival!
How do you think the Huskies will finish?

FishDuck Going to Articles on Monday and Tuesday Only…
Our off-season schedule begins, and we move from publishing articles seven days a week to Mondays and Tuesdays only. Same great group of writers, and we will have an article on other days on occasion.
The Our Beloved Ducks Forum (OBD) is where we we discuss the article above and many more topics, as it is so much easier in a message board format over there. At the free OBD forum we will be posting Oregon Sports article links, the daily Press Releases from the Athletic Department and the news coming out every day.
Our 33 rules at the free OBD Forum can be summarized to this: 1) be polite and respectful, 2) do not tell anyone what to think, feel or write, and 3) no reference of any kind to politics. Easy-peasy!
