Grinolds/ Scout Huskies find another way to lose PULLMAN, Wash. - In a game featuring teams no one wanted to watch, Washington and Washington State made the 101st Apple Cup one for the ages, defying every reasonable convention. Nico Grasu's 37-yard field goal in the second overtime propelled the Cougars to a fitting 16-13 triumph at Martin Stadium Saturday. 2047 Chris Fetters Sun, 23 Nov 2008 00:47:00 GMT 0 147 Washington washington Jordan White-Frisbee (Kim Grinolds/ Scout Dawg Blog - Apple Cup Well, it's finally come - the Awful Cup. I mean, the Apple Cup. Both Washington and Washington State has combined to build up the kind of notoriety that has ESPN bringing two writers to cover the AC. But unfortunately everyone is interested for all the wrong reasons. Together, the Huskies and Cougars have been shut out of the Pac-10 regular season - until Saturday. Both deserve to lose. 2047 Chris Fetters Thu, 20 Nov 2008 00:35:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Paul Wulff Scout Player Quotes - UCLA SEATTLE - Here are quotes from Washington's Mesphin Forrester, Ronnie Fouch, Johnie Kirton, Brandon Johnson and Mason Foster after losing to UCLA 27-7.

No one knows what the team needs more than the players themselves. With so many different coaching options, there are a couple key components that the players feel they need in their next coach. 2047 Jonathan Martone Fri, 14 Nov 2008 08:53:00 GMT 0 147 Washington washington Michael Gottlieb (K. Grinolds/ Scout Dawg Blog - UCLA SEATTLE - Well, here's everyone's red-letter game. Like Nick Saban returning to Baton Rouge, it's Rick Neuheisel's time to head back to Husky Stadium and face the music against a Washington program that is a shell of their former selves. Will he be cheered? Will he be booed? Will he have more former players on UCLA's side than on UW's side? 2047 Chris Fetters Thu, 13 Nov 2008 23:40:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Rick Neuheisel (Getty) Scout Dawg Blog - ASU Well, at 0-8 and no end in sight, the University of Willingham Huskies trudge on. Saturday they host Arizona State (2-6, 1-4), another team in a freefall, yet the Sun Devils are favored by at least two touchdowns. And playing against a team that's been outscored by over 100 points their last three games, why not? 2047 Chris Fetters Thu, 06 Nov 2008 00:40:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Dennis Erickson Scout It Falls on Deaf Ears With only two home football games left for the senior class, their time to make an impact is dwindling. This Saturday will prove to be one of the last chances for these players to not only talk about what needs to change, but walk it as well. And the Arizona State Sun Devils can be beaten. 2047 Jon Martone Wed, 05 Nov 2008 07:54:00 GMT 0 147 Washington washington Luke Kravitz (K. Grinolds/ Scout Blown Out by the Trojans, Sun Devils Up Next Wow! Totally outclassed in LA. Obviously, firing the coach and leaving him on the sidelines didn't inspire the still defeated Washington Huskies. This time it was embarrassing as the Trojans of USC literally did whatever they wanted to in shutting out an emotionless and almost flatlined Husky team by 56 points. 2047 DICK BAIRD Tue, 04 Nov 2008 06:23:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Dick Baird Scout Coaches' Quotes - USC LOS ANGELES - Here are quotes from Washington Head Coach Tyrone Willingham and Defensive Coordinator Ed Donatell after the Huskies were buried 56-0 by USC Saturday afternoon. 2047 Chris Fetters Sun, 02 Nov 2008 03:21:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Tyrone Willingham (Kim Grinolds/ Scout Dawg Blog - USC This week's USC blog almost seems irrelevant. With the news of Tyrone Willingham's firing at the end of the season coming out Monday, it took all the steam out of the Huskies' quest to find a win on the road this weekend in Los Angeles. Maybe that's a good thing? The 43-point spread the oddsmakers have put on this game just equals a record set when the Trojans played Washington State. 2047 Chris Fetters Thu, 30 Oct 2008 01:40:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Pete Carroll Scout Dawg Blog - Notre Dame Well, from a Washington perspective, it doesn't get much worse than this. Not only are the Huskies off to their worst start in nearly 40 years, but now they have the team that fired UW's current head coach coming into town. And to add insult, they are playing arguably their best ball to date. It's shaping up to be a textbook case of two teams inextricably linked going in opposite directions. 2047 Chris Fetters Sun, 26 Oct 2008 02:30:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Charlie Weis Scout UW Quotes - Oregon State Here are quotes from Washington coaches and players in the wake of the Huskies' 34-13 loss to Oregon State at Husky Stadium. 2047 Jon Martone Sun, 19 Oct 2008 05:30:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Ronnie Fouch (Kim Grinolds/ Scout Dawg Blog - Oregon State It's after the bye week, is there a game this coming weekend? You bet. The Oregon State Beavers - fresh off hanging 66 on Washington State, come looking for more Evergreen State pelts as they trek to Seattle to take on a beleaguered bunch of Huskies. The spread is already two touchdowns; is that being kind, or does Washington have it in them to reverse this curse? 2047 Chris Fetters Thu, 16 Oct 2008 20:50:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Mike Riley (Otto Greule/Getty Images) Scout Dawg Blog - Arizona SEATTLE - This week's dawg blog sees the Huskies heading out of the Northwest for the first time this year - to Tucson, Ariz. to face the Arizona Wildcats. At 0-4, the only bright spot the Huskies might see this weekend comes courtesy of that patented Arizona sunshine. 2047 Chris Fetters Thu, 02 Oct 2008 20:50:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Mike Stoops Scout Dawg Blog - Stanford With the bye week in the rearview mirror, the Washington Huskies return to work Saturday against Stanford. The Huskies are desperate for a taste of success, and if they plan on reaching any post-season goals, a win over the Cardinal is pretty much mandatory. 2047 Chris Fetters Sat, 27 Sep 2008 22:45:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Jim Harbaugh Stanford Scout It Starts Up Front Not only is the Huskies' tackling to date leaving something to be desired, but a rare few are taking the blunt end of the shots when they are delivered. Mason Foster, Nate Williams and Mesphin Forrester have already eclipsed the 20-tackle mark. The only player on the defensive line to get into double-digit tackles is Daniel Te'o-Nesheim with 17. 2047 Jonathan Martone Wed, 17 Sep 2008 07:31:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Johnie Kirton (K. Grinolds/ Scout Dawg Blog - Oklahoma With the Washington Huskies coming off a heartbreaking home loss against No. 15 BYU, they have to rebound, and do so quickly against the Oklahoma Sooners, the No. 3 team in the country. The last time the Huskies hosted a top-five team from outside the conference? No. 4 Miami in 2000, and we all know what happened in that game. To quote Al Michaels - do you believe in miracles? 2047 Chris Fetters Sat, 13 Sep 2008 20:30:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Bob Stoops Scout Dawg Blog - BYU Much like last season, the Washington Huskies face a team from a non-BCS conference for their home opener. Last year it was Boise State; this year it's BYU. The stakes have been raised, however. With 0-1 and the prospects of playing another top-25 team staring them right in the face, how will Tyrone Willingham and his Huskies respond this Saturday? 2047 Chris Fetters Thu, 04 Sep 2008 10:48:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Bronco Mendenhall Scout Photo Gallery - Oregon Here's a photo gallery - taken by Kim Grinolds of - of Oregon's 44-10 win over Washington Saturday night at Autzen Stadium in Eugene, Ore. 2047 Kim Grinolds Sun, 31 Aug 2008 07:54:00 GMT 0 147 Washington washington UW fan (Kim Grinolds/ Scout Dawg Blog - Oregon Many people felt the Washington Huskies had the hardest schedule in college football last year. Heading into 2008, there doesn't seem like there's going to be much letup. For their opener, they dive head-first into conference play and go on the road at the same time. Oregon has not been a very kind host, winning their last three at home against the Huskies. What will this year bring? 2047 Chris Fetters Sat, 30 Aug 2008 22:50:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Mike Bellotti Scout The transition of Johnie Kirton After rushing for 2,675 yards as a senior at Jackson High School, Johnie Kirton joined the University of Washington football team. He started his career at fullback. After redshirting in 2004 he added 32 pounds and became a tight end. Now he is in the mix to start at defensive tackle for the upcoming Oregon game Saturday in Eugene. 2047 Jonathan Martone Thu, 28 Aug 2008 08:20:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Johnie Kirton (K. Grinolds/ Scout Baptism under Fire Regardless of what the released two-deep says, the Washington Huskies are going to be a young team to open the season. Look for as many as 20-22 first-year players to be on the field against the Oregon Ducks. You are who you are, and this team will have lots of red-shirted and true freshman playing in their very first college football game come this Saturday night. 2047 Dick Baird Tue, 26 Aug 2008 07:17:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Anthony Boyles (K.
