Okay Dawg Pound, lets play a game of concessions okay?
I will concede that was a highly convincing and effective W for your Huskies,
But will you concede SU gave you more of a scare early, and more of a challenge overall then you anticipated?
I will concede that my notion of SU having the edge due to pressure on UW did not come close to holding water,
But will you concede that SU's Ryan Nassib, and offense overall handled themselves rather well in a very hostile and difficult environment? That while pressure wasn't a factor against UW, the home field advantage wasn't too much of factor against SU either.
UW simply has a better team. Significantly more talent at the skill positions on offense then the SU defense can handle right now. Our D played well early, but as adjustments were made and as the game wore on, the lack of depth and skill in the secondary really showed.
Nice win, congrats. Hope our teams meet up again in future years, there simply are not enough bi-coastal rivalries in CFB.
PS - Fox Sports announcers, Ryan Nassib is a RS SOPHMORE, NOT A JUNIOR. I don't know what that little detail bothered me so much, but it did.
PPS - I don't care what the score was, THE MARINERS OVER THE HOME OPENER, ON THE SECOND SUNDAY OF FOOTBALL? WITH A HEISMAN CANDIDATE ON THE FIELD? I should look back at the game thread here, I don't image that went over too well.
