Well we've finally made it to that time of year again. The first weekend of the college football season. Saturday will kick off the 2005 Husky Football season, which we can only hope will be a fair bit better than last year's 1-10 season.
First, may I make a hearty recommendation for the entertaining comics (though I hear they're called "graphic novels" these days) at www.huskycomics.com. In its second season bringing high-quality Husky Football parody humor. :)
Now, this season opener for the dawgs will be an "away" game at Air Force... played in none other than scenic Qwest Field, home of the Seahawks. I honestly don't know what to expect from the dawgs this year, but I'm sure it'll be better than before. In Tyrone Willingham's debut as coach of the Huskies, I expect a stellar performance. I'm not saying I expect to SEE a stellar performance, but I expect one nonetheless. :) It'll be an exciting game to watch regardless, and all things considered, I will make this week's prediction:
Huskies 31 - Falcons 24
I'll say up front that I always predict the dawgs to win... because I've seen too many upsets to believe there's any game that we have no chance. Go Dawgs!
