Crushed Optimists

We are twin brothers who grew up in Central Washington. This blog is devoted to the life of Seattle sports fans, as well as various other topics that we will espouse for your enjoyment. We could be called another OFFICIAL SEATTLE SEAHAWKS site, but we'll take our uneducated crack at the Mariners, Sonics, and Huskies as well. A Seattle Sports Blog? Must be the land... of crushed optimism!

Monday Thoughts: Husky Football

This is a pretty good preview of Washington, pretty balanced, with reasons why we should believe that the Dawgs can be a little bit better this year. Not bowl-bound better, but four-five wins better. I think right now (and of course we'll preview it later this month) that our defense is going to be a serious strength.

Also, Tyrone Willingham, after a pretty poor recruiting class helped along by his late hire, is quietly putting together an all-star class for next season. His latest conquest? Ferndale QB Jake Locker, rated as a top-ten national QB prospect. You have to keep the Washington kids in-state, and if Willingham can do that, and add the other top-twenty kids like he has in this future class, we may start seeing a rise to our fortunes.
