As another Husky season comes down the stretch, odds are high that a 7th consecutive losing campaign is at hand.  Washington has been outscored 138-30 in the past three games.  But with UCLA, Cal and WSU on the horizon, supporters of Steve Sarkisian anticipate a three game winning streak and subsequent lower tiered bowl game appearance.

Meanwhile in reality, the amazing irony is the Jim L. Mora, the obvious choice back in 2007 to be selected as the replacement to Tyrone Willingham, remains local while busying himself with his TV commentating gig.

But given Mora’s deep love for Husky football, his reputation as a strong defensive mind and his energy and charisma, this man remains the obvious choice to save Husky Football from itself.

It seems 98% certain that Sarkisian will be given a third year in 2011, so another full turn of the calendar is required.  Will Mora wait around that long to see how things sort themselves out at Washington?

You have to wonder, in his heart of hearts, if Mora’s not biding his time and waiting for the opportunity to be head coach at the university that needs his energy and competence more desperately than ever.
