After not letting him do anything all year, the lame duck interim coach trotted out Huard to start in the Apple Cup. Rough debut as a starter, threw 4 picks, Cougs rolled 40-13 to snap a long losing streak in the rivalry game. This horrible season is mercifully over. I can't imagine a single member of the staff will be back.

Coaching DOES matter. Night and day difference for the Dawgs so far this year. 3-0 start, offense can move the ball and put up points. Brought in a bunch of transfers at the skill positions. I wasn't familiar with him, the new starting QB is Michael Penix. Apparently he always showed he had talent while he was at Indiana but he couldn't stay healthy. He looks really good so far. Good poise in the pocket, accurate, actually looks like a QB. Play calling/offensive scheme is so much better than last year as well.

Well...after a nice 4-0 start, they went to UCLA and forgot to bring their defense. Almost had a stirring a 4th quarter come back, but too little too late.

Wow heck of a game tonight. 20 min Power outage, ties, winning Fieldgail with 12 sec., blocked kickoff attempt, flags, 2 sec left 3 laterals, husky intercept. Whew. Impressive quarterback. Hope you all could see it.

Yep, quite a game. Early on looked like OSU was going to crush them. Ran the ball at will. Got in the Red Zone first 3 drives, but 2 4th down stops limited them to only 7 points. I've been really critical of the Dawgs' defense ever since the UCLA game, but they came up big numerous times and did enough to keep them in the game. Penix is a stud. I honestly knew nothing about him before the season started. Apparently he always displayed talent, but couldn't stay healthy at Indiana. He's easily the best QB at UW since...I don't even know how far back you have to go. Browning had a really good Soph season but then went steadily downhill. Ever since then the position has been very sketchy.

He won't be here long, but Penix is definitely part of Husky lore now. That's gotta be one of the more stirring wins in quite a while. I didn't think they had a chance of winning in Autzen.
