A few links to start the week. As I’m finishing these up, I’m listening to Husky play-by-play man Bob Rondeau on his weekly stint on KJR-AM and he said simply “the better team won” when asked what happened in the Apple Cup.
Rondeau also said he thought the offense looked as if it was “playing in cement” throughout the game and that he didn’t think the Huskies adjusted well to the way the game was being officiated.
