The statistical hole left by seniors Mason Foster and Victor Aiyewa is one Andy Dufresne would be proud of. We're talking careers that totaled 504 tackles, 62 tackles for loss, and 15 sacks, as well as 56 combined starts. Wow.

With the graduation of inside linebacker Donald Butler, Cox - UW's LB's Coach - didn't have a true answer at that position last year. So he put his smartest guy on the job, Cort Dennison. Problem was, Dennison was really a weak-side linebacker, a player who got his first start at Notre Dame in 2009 when E.J. Savannah went down. 2047 Chris Fetters Mon, 04 Apr 2011 08:51:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Cort Dennison (Kim Grinolds/ Scout Coach's Corner One of the problems of playing 18 and 19-year old freshmen is that often times they break down physically, especially in the shoulders.

It is the type of win that reverberates into the off-season with good vibes. Washington manhandled Nebraska in the trenches. And they did it on the ground, behind a rushing attack that was filthy in the best way. 2047 David Samek Thu, 06 Jan 2011 15:54:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Holiday Bowl Press Conference Scout Redshirt Freshmen: Where will they fit? 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.

Scout Dawg Blog - USC After a much-needed BYE week, Washington (1-2) gets back on the saddle, so to speak, and back into familiar territory - at least for Head Coach Steve Sarkisian. 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?
