Tonight’s poll — Is Washington making enough progress in coach Steve Sarkisian’s fourth year?

The Seattle Times’ nightly sports poll asks a question that’s on the mind of a lot of UW fans — are the Huskies making enough progress in the fourth year under Steve Sarkisian?

The poll question goes along with Steve Kelley’s column for the Thursday paper in which Kelley writes that the Huskies need to show more and that next season will be the “Judgment Year” for Sarkisian.

As a reminder, UW is 26-24 under Sarkisian, 19-17 in Pac-12 play and 5-7 against the other three Pac-12 Northwest Teams (0-4 Oregon, 2-2 Oregon State, 3-1 WSU). UW was 7-5 this regular season and will need a bowl win to move above the seven-win total for the third straight year, and finished 5-4 in conference play for the third straight season.

As has been widely discussed here and elsewhere, if next season truly is the “Judgment Year” for Sarkisian, the roster appears set up well. The Huskies had just 11 seniors this season and return all but two players who were listed as starters on offense (center Drew Schaefer, fullback Jonathan Amosa) in the Apple Cup and three on defense (defensive tackle Semisi Tokolahi, safety Justin Glenn, cornerback Desmond Trufant), plus about a half-dozen key players who missed this season with injury. Experience and depth won’t be issues next season.

For tonight, though, go ahead and weight in on the question posed by the Times:

Is Washington making enough progress in coach Steve Sarkisian’s fourth season?
