The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

Almost perfect weather

It’s about 90 minutes before kickoff (which is officially at 3:56 p.m.) and weather doesn’t figure to be any real factor in the game today. Skies are clear and it’s a sunny day right now with temperatures in the 40s or so.
In case you missed it, I’ll point you to one of the stories I wrote today which I thought included some interesting numbers comparing UW’s offense with Isaiah Stanback and how it has performed since he was injured.
It’s obviously not news that the Huskies haven’t been the same team since Stanback was injured.
But I was surprised at how drastic the difference has been statistically. To repeat one of the numbers, UW averaged 367.7 yards in the first six games of the season and 255 since.
I think the injury to Stanback remains the one big caveat when you look at this season and try to judge Tyrone Willingham (not that that excuses the Stanford game or the handling of the “suddenly senior issue in any way).
