That was the single worst Husky football loss I’ve ever seen, and I had a functioning brain cell in my head during the 2008 season.
There aren’t words to describe how shittily everyone on the Huskies performed on Saturday night against the Montana Grizzlies, an FCS school that marched into Washington and came away with a 13-7 victory. Everyone. Every single person affiliated with the Huskies, from the athletic director on down to every single man on that football team failed. They were FUCKING EMBARRASSING, and I’m frankly ashamed to be a fan of this team right now. There’s no worse, more laughable feeling in college athletics than to be a Top 20 ranked football team that loses to another team from a lower division.
Jimmy Lake is a fucking joke right now. I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, but let’s look at the total package: he’s losing highly-ranked committments left and right. He’s currently running out the players that Chris Peterson got for him. He lost his defensive coordinator to the Texas Longhorns, and he hired an offensive coordinator who is somehow worse than Bush Hamdan. He couldn’t keep the team from succumbing to COVID last year – costing us a chance at the Pac-12 Championship – and now he lost to Montana in the season opener.
Dylan Morris won the starting job last year and was okay. He came into this year as the frontrunner and managed to beat out true freshman Sam Huard (our only 5-star recruit). By all accounts, he’s a hard worker and natural leader. But, what did he do on Saturday? Led this team to an opening-drive touchdown … and then nothing the rest of the game. 27/46, 226 yards, 0 TDs and 3 INTs. PATHETIC.
You know what I don’t want to hear about? How there were starting wide receivers who didn’t play for whatever reason. You are the WASHINGTON HUSKIES; they are the Montana Grizzlies. Your third stringers should be able to overwhelm that school’s number ones!
Boy did the offensive line suck! What was this I heard about the Huskies having the best O-Line in the conference? They couldn’t protect for shit!
I have no notes for the defense. I don’t expect the Husky defense to hold a team to 3 points – even one as bad as Montana – especially when the offense keeps shitting down its fucking legs the entire fucking game. What a FUCKING wretched experience; everyone affiliated with that team needs to take a long look in the mirror.
I can’t guarantee I’m going to want to talk about this team a whole lot after this. What is there to say? Even if we improve and beat some teams, there’s always going to be the dark cloud hanging over the season. They could win the next 11 straight games and we’ll all know, “Yeah, but you fucking lost to Montana, you fucking wastes of space.”
Fire Jimmy Lake. Bench Dylan Morris. Start Sam Huard. And find a fucking offensive coordinator who doesn’t have his head up his own fucking ass.
