It was a Cold and Enjoyable Night at Husky Stadium

Cold, Happy Night at Husky Stadium

Prior to kickoff my Dad was as sullen as reserved as I have ever seen him in the waning moments before a game.  When this observation was brought up to him, he merely smiled and shrugged.  It’s been both a difficult season and last few years.

After seeing the team lay down and give up against Arizona and Stanford, followed by the massacre at Oregon, I wasn’t sure what to expect from the Dawgs for the final home game of the season.

UCLA’s offense was awful, so that helped.  In the third quarter I turned to papa and said:  “If you put Cougar uniforms on this UCLA team, you would never know the difference.  And maybe they’re worse, because I like Tuel, the WSU quarterback.”

Then Washington created some big turnovers in the fourth quarter and pulled away.  When Neuheisel’s mug flashed upon the jumbo tron, boos rang out from all corners of the stadium.  That was kind of a fun moment.

By the end of the night, two Washington running backs topped 100 yards for the first time in three seasons, and the Huskies pulled away to win it, 24-7.  Dad and I both left the stadium surprised and happy.

    Boo all you want but the Neuheisel was the last winning coach we had and for that, he will always get a pass from me.
