Coaching in the internet age?

Would DJ have survived?  Was it Ty's downfall?

No idea personally, but I am curious about the thoughts of others.  In my mind, DJ was left, with the exception of the insiders that had access, with free rein.  I don't really think he had any real measure of his performance other than game day.  A lot of the problems with UW football have come after the program was exposed to the public in a manner that most coaches probably weren't prepared for.

I didn't really pay attention to the daily progess/performance of the team until dawgman came about.  There were a couple of other websites I came across, coz and another one whose name I can't remember, but it's where I ran into Whiskeydawg for the first time.

What effect did the increased exposure and scrutiny have on the demise of Dawgs?  My opinion is little.  I place the blame on the ADs.  Other programs have flourished with the same exposure.

This is in no way a slight, nor a jab, at any website that follows the Dawgs.  I love them all but one.  I just wonder if our coaches and AD weren't ready for the limelight.

That said, kick some ass this weekend Huskies!!!
