What a Great Season the Huskies Had!

Yesterday in the College Football Semifinal game in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, the University of Washington Huskies lost to Alabama. Alabama is still undefeated and still the #1 team in the nation.

It started out with the Huskies scoring first. But the Dawgs never scored again as the Alabama defense held them. The final score was 7-24. But it could have been a lot worse. The Husky defense never gave up, never stopped trying, and forced Alabama to punt often. Unfortunately the Huskies offense could never take advantage of that as the Alabama defense shut down both their passing game and running attack.

But, I still love my Huskies.

Think about this: last year they went into the Apple Cup needing to win to have a 6-6 season and be bowl eligible. They did win and went on to play in a bowl called the "Heart of Dallas Bowl." They won that, too, for a 7-6 season record.

This year they lost one regular season game (to the hated USC), won the Pac-12 Championship Game, and then lost to Alabama for a 12-2 season record. That's quite an improvement. And, at least for now, they are the #4 team in the nation out of 128 FBS teams.

So I still love my Huskies. And I can't wait until next year because I think they will do even better. Right now they are scheduled to play their opening game at Rutgers on Friday September 1st. That's only 243 days away.
