It's usually because they haven't developed the tendon strength necessary to withstand the big hits that come with stepping up to the college level. 2047 DICK BAIRD Sun, 27 Mar 2011 05:30:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Gregory Ducre (K.Grinolds/ Scout 2011 Recruiting Rundown Now that Signing Day is done, Dawgman has taken the time to sort through the rubble to see where how Washington Huskies finished out the recruiting process. Did they finish out the way they wanted to? Did they address all their needs? Did they get a solid mix of stars and team players? Was their haul effectively balanced between offense and defense? 2047 David Samek Tue, 08 Feb 2011 14:57:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Derrick Brown ( Scout Looking beyond the Holiday Bowl, Part II Washington won their last three games in a row, and not only earned a trip to the Holiday Bowl, but they got a huge measure of revenge in beating Nebraska. That is a great reward not only for a team that worked so hard to overcome a three-game losing streak, but also for a program that has not been to the post season in nearly a decade. 2047 David Samek Tue, 11 Jan 2011 20:30:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Alameda Ta'amu (Kim Grinolds/ Scout Dawg Blog - Holiday Bowl With Washington now in San Diego to take part in their first bowl appearance in eight years, will compile all the news, notes and quotes as the Huskies prepare to take on Nebraska in a rematch of an earlier game in which the Cornhuskers took UW to the woodshed.

Washington has brought in some very talented young players in Steve Sarkisian's first two seasons as the University of Washington's head football coach.

This will be Sarkisian's first return to Troy since leaving USC nearly two years ago. After the Huskies' 16-13 upset of the then No.3 Trojans in Seattle last year, does USC have something special cooking for Sark and company? 2047 Chris Fetters Thu, 30 Sep 2010 02:40:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Marlion Barnett (K.Grinolds/ Scout Dawg Blog - Nebraska It's week three, and for some reason week three always brings about a tough opponent for Washington of late. USC, Oklahoma, Ohio's been a virtual bloodbath at home. This weekend is no different, as the No. 6 Nebraska Cornhuskers come calling. Can the Huskies pull out a little last-second magic, as they did last year against the No. 3-ranked Trojans?

Here's a little progress report on the Husky defenders as I see them in practice.
