Husky Football Blog

The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

The mourning after

The good news this morning is that the Huskies are at least done with their three-game gauntlet of Arizona, Stanford and Oregon.
The damage shows not only on the scoreboard — three straight losses by a combined 138-30 — but also in the stats.
Here are the updated numbers for the Huskies showing UW is 107th nationally in total defense at 440 yards per game, 109th in scoring defense at 36.22 and 114th against the run at 219.56. That latter number could be telling going forward as UW’s next two foes — UCLA and Cal — figure to try to exploit Washington’s run defense, each with some issues throwing the ball.
But overall, the numbers reveal what might be expected of a 3-6 team as UW doesn’t rank higher than 50th in the nation in any category, that being turnovers as UW is 50th, having gained 12 and lost 11 (and meaning that one stat that often most defines winners and losers isn’t really one that Washington can blame).
And a reminder that UW is now off until Thursday, Nov. 18 against UCLA. The team is expected to practice early this week, take a couple days off, then resume a normal gameweek preparation for the Bruins on Saturday (which becomes a Monday in the practice week setup).

All for now.
