With UW football finishing their season with nothing but pride on the line, fans are already looking ahead in anticipation, wondering if their junior quarterback will take the money and run to the NFL? Or will he stick around Montlake for one more season? 2047 Chris Fetters Tue, 01 Dec 2009 09:46:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Jake Locker (Kim Grinolds/ Scout Huskies Give the Fans What They Want SEATTLE - It wasn't exactly the Middleton Line, but for Steve Sarkisian it'll have to do. Washington tight end Kavario Middleton predicted the Huskies would hang at least 50 on Washington State this week, and they came up nearly three touchdowns short. It was about the only thing the Huskies didn't do well during a 30-0 whitewashing of the Cougars Saturday night at Husky Stadium. 2047 Chris Fetters Sun, 29 Nov 2009 05:14:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Steve Sarkisian (Kim Grinolds/ Scout Small Senior Class Deserves AC Win There were only 12 seniors listed in Washington's full depth chart for their last game, against OSU. Of the 27 listed in the offensive depth, only four were seniors and only two were starters recruited and signed into the program.

Grinolds/ Scout Monday Press Conference Notes There's only one more media session left this year for Washington football, and odds are good that Kavario Middleton probably won't be invited. It's unfortunate too, because the Husky tight end had the best line of the day Monday as Washington and Washington State begin preparations for their yearly entanglement known as the Apple Cup. 2047 Chris Fetters Tue, 24 Nov 2009 02:56:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Steve Sarkisian (Kim Grinolds/ Scout Monday Press Conference Notes Steve Sarkisian admitted Monday that if he had a choice, he'd rather be playing football this weekend, especially in light of Washington's 48-21 loss to OSU this past weekend. But they have a bye week, and his coaches will do what they can to get their team prepared to play an Apple Cup with nothing on the line but pride. According to Sarkisian, that should provide more than enough motivation. 2047 Chris Fetters Mon, 16 Nov 2009 23:04:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Steve Sarkisian ( Kim Grinolds / Scout DawgmanRadio - UCLA PASADENA, Calif. - Kim Grinolds and Chris Fetters of sat down Saturday night and went through all the news and notes after the UCLA Bruins hung on to beat Washington 24-23 earlier in the day at the Rose Bowl. 2047 Staff Sun, 08 Nov 2009 07:51:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Daniel Te'o-Nesheim (Kim Grinolds/ Scout DawgmanRadio - Bob Condotta SEATTLE - Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times was nice enough to sit down with Chris Fetters of and hash out where the Washington Huskies are after the first eight games of their 2009 season, who has stood out, who has surprised and where the Huskies go from here on out. Can they make it to a bowl game with games against teams like UCLA and WSU on the horizon? 2047 Staff Mon, 02 Nov 2009 16:01:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Nussmeier, Sarkisian and Locker (Kim Grinolds/ Scout Huskies seeing Red on Defense SEATTLE - The numbers aren't pretty. When looking at the statistics for Washington's defense in 2009, there's one thought that keeps getting recycled; they look an awful lot like 2008's defensive numbers. But that team was 0-12 and the 2009 Huskies are 3-3 and looking for more wins. How can that be? 2047 Chris Fetters Tue, 13 Oct 2009 01:41:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Nick Holt (K.

I thought the tempo and pace of practice not only would help condition the team but that it would also slow the game down for them once it started. We will find that out soon enough, but more importantly - how are they addressing some of the more obvious areas of concern? 2047 DICK BAIRD Wed, 19 Aug 2009 07:34:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Demetrice Martin (Kim Grinolds/ Scout DawgmanRadio: Post-Spring SEATTLE - Kim Grinolds, Scott Eklund and Chris Fetters spoke Friday about the Steve Sarkisian effect and what took place during Sarkisian's first spring as head coach of the Washington Huskies in this segment of Dawgman Radio. 2047 Staff Sat, 02 May 2009 07:52:00 GMT 1 147 Washington washington Steve Sarkisian (Kim Grinolds/ Scout Recruiting, Conditioning and Admissions SEATTLE - Winning is being brought back to Washington, and after watching 11 of their 15 practices this spring I personally think it will happen this coming season.
