Cugel: DOOOOOOOOOOOOOM Squared.
LeonPowe: This is less than optimal. I feel like I wrote that yesterday.
Berkelium97: I'm not as concerned about the loss of Kiesau, but this one still stings. It stings because UW is raiding our coaching staff and giving them unbeatable offers. Meanwhile, our former commits consider following them over to UW. There's nothing wrong with it, per se, but it is a very unusual tactic---one we have not seen much in the increasingly shady recruiting game.
Hide yo Michalczik, hide yo Blasquez, they hirin' errbody out here!
Yellow Fever: I'm a little confused though - didn't Washington beat us? Why are they so interested in our coaches? That would be like the Celtics suddenly poaching Avery Johnson and P.J. Carlesimo. What?
OhioBear: So much for the old gang being back together. It lasted only a year.
If Kiesau can land two or three of these guys and make up for the losses they'll experience in Seattle, the balance of power potentially shifts up to Washington as the main challenger to dethrone Oregon in the North.
OhioBear: We spent 1976 to 2001 losing to Washington. Every. Single. Time. Washington has been to the Rose Bowl nine times since we last went. And one Orange Bowl. They were a power under Don James, Jim Lambright, and Rick Neuheisel. (And prior to Don James, they had their glory moments under Jim Owens.)
