SEATTLE - Washington Defensive Coordinator Ed Donatell was less than two days into his new job when he was asked a seemingly basic question; would he be using the 4-3 or 3-4 as his base defense?

SEATTLE - Well, the beat goes on. The Washington Huskies fight like hell, only to find another way to let one slip from their grasp. As frustrating as it is for those sitting in the stands, it's maddening for those playing and coaching on the sidelines.

After five-straight in the loss column, the rubber has definitely met the road. Husky Nation is so hungry for a win, but it's not as easy as going down to Dick's on 45th and dialing up a couple of cheeseburgers. The Huskies host the Arizona Wildcats in a game where both teams are searching for answers
