Kim Hastings FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 1 Comment

Spring football gets underway around the Pacific Northwest this week.  Looking forward, Duck fans have a few questions for the 2014/15 campaign.  Will the linebackers step up?  Is the offensive line improved?  After they lose for the 11th time in a row, can we expect Washington fans en masse to jump off a Seattle area bridge, or will they use …

  Not too many “BIG” games happening this week and the media was sure to let us know about it.  Heck, ESPN’s Game Day went to Fargo, North Dakota, because of the lack of “BIG” games to go to.  It was nice seeing them there just to give the “little” guys a shout out.  We have had some great FCS …
