| Old Buzz: A really
bad color commentator on Fox Northwest, but forgiveable because of his crimson heroics
in the Mother of All Apple Cup upsets in 1982.
New Buzz: A friend, high-stakes gambling associate and shameless apologist for Slick Rick. Worse, the one-time darling of Sigma Nu has a wicked case of male-pattern baldness. Yikes! Shoulda been in Theta Xi instead.
|Old Buzz: A confused young
man torn between Slick Rick's snake oil promises and the fact he knew he'd
never see the light of day trying to compete with Hurd and Swogger.
New Buzz: Racing off to the ear doctor. Thought Slick Rick pledged he'd someday make millions throwing footballs. Now believes the coach actually said "throwing dice."
|Old Buzz: Gambled away his

|Float plane rides||Old Buzz: Cute stunt used
to transport top recruits to the lake-front home where Mrs. Slick was standing
dockside with a plate of brownies.
New Buzz: May day! May day!
|Bill Doba||Old Buzz: Unassuming,
straight-arrow defensive wunderkind who likes to BBQ steaks for the
New Buzz: Unassuming, straight-arrow head coach who knows all the rules and wouldn't know a lap dance if it hit him in the face.
|Old Buzz: A mere extension
of the UW PR machine.
New Buzz: These dudes actually know a hard news story --- that is, when it's presented to them on a silver platter.
|Old Buzz: The witty Seattle
P-I scribe is the freshest approach to sports columns this side of Thomas
Boswell. Plus, ya gotta love anyone who dares to constantly poke at the sacred
Seattle cow known as Husky athletics.
