Parrish no longer likes Huskies

We linked to it here a few months ago when CBS Sportsline.com columnist Gary Parrish ranked UW No. 17 in his pre-season poll, so only fair to link to him again now that he has decided the Huskies no longer deserve ranking.
Can’t say I disagree with his ultimate conclusion, that UW isn’t deserving right now of a top 25 ranking.
But I’m not sure to what make of his reasoning for doing so as I don’t know how you can conclude anything based on five games in Greece that nobody saw and that apparently were played in about 100-degree temperatures and with refs who were said to be not exactly hospitable.
Not to mention that two key players didn’t participate in Greece — Matthew Bryan-Amaning and Venoy Overton. MBA could start and Overton could be a 15-20-25-minute a game guy depending on how it all works out.
And that 1998 team he refenced actually made it to the NCAA Tournament, something this team would be love to do.
But hey, it’s all just interesting conjecture this time of year, anyway.
