Tonight they play unranked but not doing too badly Arizona. And I'm hoping they win (of course). Then the week after they play Oregon State who are currently ranked 8. But after that the Huskies' schedule gets much much easier (Cal, Utah, Colorado, Wazzu). If they win tonight I think they can easily pull off a 8-4 record (assuming they lose to OSU). If they lose tonight they still should be 7-5 but that's worse than last year.
The problem is, they went 8 and 4 last season so 8-4 this year would not be an improvement (unless they win their bowl game and go 9-4). Yes, this year they've been plagued with injuries (and it shows every time Keith Price has to scramble out of the way of a sack). But eventually fans are going to get tired of saying "maybe next year." To me the perfect Husky season (other than a 13-0 national championship) would be a winning record, winning their bowl game, and beat Oregon, USC, and WSU. Is that too much to ask? So far this year it looks like we'll at least do two of those. (Sorry, Sare, for the stupidball post.)
UPDATE: we lost … badly.
