Here are a couple of polls to pass some time tonight.
First is one from the Times, asking the weekly question of which of the major football (as well as futbol) teams in the state you think is most likely to win this week. And it’s a little tougher question than some weeks with each team playing a game it could win, but also lose (okay, theoretically that can happen every game, but some more than others, which I think is the case this week).
Next is a poll for this blog, asking a question I heard from a few of you after the game and which was also hotly debated this morning by former Husky QB Brock Huard and sidekick Mike Salk on 710 ESPN Seattle — should UW fans have rushed the field after the win over Oregon State?
Huard, as you can hear, argued a vehement no, saying in part that it shows a lack of understanding of UW’s tradition to rush the field for a win that while a good win, hardly stands out when matched against others in the program’s history.
A few callers commented that it was basically just students — who weren’t around for things like the 1991 national title and have mostly endured losing or mediocre seasons during their time as Husky fans — who did the rushing and that a little exuberance can be excused given the team’s recent history.
You can hear what Huard and Salk said below.
And here’s a poll to voice your own opinion:
