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?

For Football Season: FishDuck Back to Seven Days a Week!
I had to shut down the daily articles on July 20th because I could no longer work the extra 3 to 12 hours per week of certain managerial/editorial duties. (beyond the usual ones with FishDuck)
I’ve had a blast writing without those duties, and now, due to a new agreement with the writers, I can announce that we will have articles seven days a week again. I wish to thank the writers publicly for their graciousness in coming to a solution, as now I still do not have do those extra duties with our agreement, and meanwhile the writers are back having fun creating articles as I am.
Everybody is happy! So below is the new schedule through football season:
Monday: Mr. FishDuck
Tuesday: Darren Perkins
Wednesday: Joshua Whitted & Mr. FishDuck
Thursday: Coach Eric Boles & Alex Heining
Friday: David Marsh
Saturday: Mr. FishDuck (GameDay Baby!)
Sunday: Jordan Ingram
A couple of writers could not join us as they have new projects in their lives, and cannot write for anyone at the moment–but perhaps we will see them back later.
Things rarely work out so well for all parties in agreements, but this time it has and truly….everyone wins!
Our 33 rules at FishDuck can be summarized to this: 1) be polite and respectful, 2) keep it clean, and 3) no reference of any kind to politics. Easy-peasy!
FishDuck members….we got your back. No Trolls Allowed!
