Moreover, one of his right-hand men at Tech for all 10 seasons there, defensive coordinator and assistant head coach Ruffin McNeill, is now a head coach himself -- one who brought a host of Leach disciples with him and turned two into coordinators. 2047 CHRIS CHANCELLOR Sun, 04 Dec 2011 22:31:00 GMT 1 137 Washington State washingtonstate Scout Moos shakes up the Pac-12 with Leach hire PULLMAN – Bill Moos, who has vowed to change the "culture" of Washington State athletics, may have changed the landscape of Pacific-12 Conference football for years to come when the Cougars announced Wednesday that offensive guru Mike Leach has agreed in principle on a five-year contract as head coach. 2047 HOWIE STALWICK Thu, 01 Dec 2011 00:16:00 GMT 0 137 Washington State washingtonstate Cougar Pride statue Scout Talking linebackers, Stanford w/ Chris Tormey PUNDITS AND FANS this season are talking about Andrew Luck in historical terms.

So ends the worst five-year stretch in the history of Husky football: So ends the worst season in football history for the school, the conference, and all the fans. Hopefully, this last season was the end of the downward spiral that has culminated an 18-year run from 12-0 to 0-12. 2047 DICK BAIRD Mon, 15 Dec 2008 23:35:00 GMT 0 147 Washington washington Steve Sarkisian (Kim Grinolds/ Scout Coach's Corner For Washington fans, I would think it's best to forget the Apple Cup and move on. Move on to a new beginning. Move on to a new system, a new coach, a new year, a new era, a new schedule, and hopefully a new attitude. Boy is it ever time for a change in Husky football! 2047 DICK BAIRD Fri, 28 Nov 2008 08:18:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Daniel Te'o-Nesheim (K. Grinolds/ 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 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 DawgmanRadio - Arizona TUSCON, Ariz. - Gentle Ben's Brew Pub on University Avenue was the place, but it turned out to be anything but gentle. The Dawgman crew thought we had seen everything earlier that night in Arizona's 48-14 whitewashing of the Washington Huskies, but apparently that was just prelude 2047 Staff Sun, 05 Oct 2008 22:04:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Baggett and Bruns (Kim Grinolds/ 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.

This latest loss for the Washington Huskies - at the hands of that mighty football power the Stanford Cardinal - was a particularly tough pill to swallow, simply because the Cardinal beat the Huskies the way the Huskies used to beat them; by physically pounding them. 2047 DICK BAIRD Wed, 01 Oct 2008 07:00:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Ed Donatell (Kim Grinolds/ 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 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 Dawg Blog: Fall Camp 2008 The 2008 version of the Dawg Blog is up and running...Who is looking good?

Savannah won't be around with the Huskies travel to Eugene August 30th to tangle with Oregon.

Grinolds/ Scout Savannah Situation Means Opportunities Let's not rush to judgment on E.J. Savannah and let the proper channels sort out where, when, and how he is going to help this Husky football team. No question when you lose your leading tackler there is going to be some adjustment. Whether its academics or injury it really doesn't effect how you think as a coach. He is not there; so you replace and move on. 2047 DICK BAIRD Wed, 06 Aug 2008 06:51:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Joshua Gage (K.

So when junior linebacker Donald Butler said he wanted to talk with new teammate Kurt Mangum recently, the frosh from the Phoenix area didn't blink an eye. He also didn't realize he was picking up the check. 2047 Chris Fetters Thu, 24 Apr 2008 07:25:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Kurt Mangum (K. Grinolds/ Scout
