The Super Bowl, while still firmly in their sights, is not a fait accompli for Seattle. And the Seahawks might very well need to get through a recharged 49ers team to get there.
They said it couldn’t be done. More to the point, I said it couldn’t be done, and obviously, that assessment was dead wrong. So let’s start by giving full credit to the Mariners for having the audacity to launch this pursuit.
We’ve heard this one before. The Mariners are going after a big free agent. But they never seem to land them, and signing Robinson Cano would be a surprise.
Jim Mora, a former Huskies player with strong connections to UW, would be the perfect choice to replace Steve Sarkisian. The Huskies will have to convince him to leave UCLA, where he has had two strong seasons.
Since he was a preteen, Wilson has studied Drew Brees’ poise and play. On Monday, he finally gets a chance to square off against the Saints QB.
Washington coach Steve Sarkisian stuck with senior quarterback Keith Price in the Apple Cup, despite a shaky first half.
The 1963 Apple Cup, originally scheduled for Nov. 23, was postponed the day before, hours after President Kennedy had been assassinated in Dallas. Playing a week later, the Huskies beat the Cougars 16-0.
Chuck Armstrong’s retirement as Mariners president is long overdue in an organization in need of cleansing.
Alex Rodriguez has always been the ultimate drama queen, so it’s no surprise, really, that it came to this: A theatrical tantrum in the midst of his grievance hearing on Wednesday, ending with him stomping out of the room, right on cue.
It’s actually a good time to start paying attention again to the Mariners. The machinations of the next several weeks will go a long way toward determining the degree of hope to be expended when spring training rolls around.
The big goals the Huskies had in mind earlier this season are out of reach now. But coach Steve Sarkisian says there’s still plenty left for his team to accomplish, starting with Saturday’s game at Oregon State.
