With the loss of four seniors, the offensive line for the Washington Huskies will look drastically different next year when it takes the field against San Jose State. One player Husky coaches are hoping to have in the fold for next year is West Los Angeles College's big-time OL Brandon Jefferson who will be on Montlake for an official visit very soon. Full Story

Apparently it wasn't enough for Washington State to win the 98th playing of the Apple Cup. In adding insult to Washington's 26-22 loss Saturday, there were some Washington State players and fans that decided Husky Stadium was theirs for the taking immediately after the Cougars' Alex Brink took a knee to finish off the fourth-quarter clock. It wasn't Clemson-South Carolina, but it had the chance to be. Full Story

Well, the mid-day fog has made the planned pre-game flyover impossible, so now it's just the battle of the bands. The Washington State band travels well and only did their trademark 'WSU' before the Washington band took center stage. After the seniors were honored, it was time for the always impressive flag ceremony. Full Story

Patience is a virtue. Gig Harbor (Wash.) S Jake Merrill is a testament to that old tenet. After being asked by Husky head coach Tyrone Willingham to be patient while the team determined their needs, Merrill received a written offer from the Husky coaching staff on Thursday afternoon and he made his decision quickly thereafter.

I'm not exactly sure when the Apple Cup officially came into being, but I believe it was when I was playing in the mid-sixties. I know I have a picture and the memory of accepting the trophy on behalf of Washington State University on November 25, 1967. It was one of the greatest moments of my playing career. Full Story

Playmakers in the secondary are at a premium in this year's recruiting class, but one player who fits that mold is S Ashley Palmer from Compton Community College. Palmer has a plethora of offers, but has scheduled only one visit at this point – to the University of Washington. was able to catch up with Palmer as he watched some football on a lazy Sunday afternoon and he updated us on his season, his thoughts on Washington and the progress of recruiting.

Washington Head Coach Tyrone Willingham is imparting life lessons to his players that they can take with them to the football field. Take, for instance, the lesson learned in Tucson, Ariz. this past weekend in Washington's 38-14 trouncing of Arizona - don't take anything for granted. That point will be hammered home to Willingham's team as they prepare for the Apple Cup. This is their bowl game. Full Story

Going into their tenth game with only one win, the Washington coaches knew it would take a substantial effort to defeat Arizona on the road. They would have momentum against them, as the Wildcats had just run over #7 UCLA the week before. But that game proved to be an anomaly, as the Huskies 38-14 win over the 'Cats in Tucson showed just how evenly-matched the two teams really were. Full Story

After the game was over, the coach couldn't help but admit that not only was his team out-played, but he was out-coached. His team didn't rise to the occasion and play to their ability. They made too many mistakes and the other team took advantage of every miscue. If you know Washington was one of the teams playing, but didn't know which game, you'd likely think Tyrone Willingham would be the coach talking above. Not so fast... Full Story

Another beautiful day in the desert. We'll see if Washington's game plan and execution match the weather as they take on the surging Arizona Wildcats in Tucson. All signs point to a solid UA victory over a Husky team looking for an indentity and searching for success. Full Story
