Boy, oh boy, is it a good time to be a Huskies fan! After coming off one of the best seasons in decades, the Dawg’s are the Pac 12 Champs! Now, they’re gearing up for a huge Semi-Final game against the # 1 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide in the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl on December 31st. Can the Dawgs Beat ‘Bama and move one step closer to securing the # 1 spot for the first time since their 1991 championship? Clay Helton, Head-Coach of USC (the only team this season to have faced up against both the dawgs and the tide) certainly thinks so. But at Simply Seattle, we don’t just think, we know the Dawgs can do it.
Is it feeling a little 90’s in here?
At Simply Seattle, we’re feeling nostalgic for the early 90’s. Remember those times, when Huskies Head Coach Don James led us to back to back National Championships in ‘90 and ‘91? Any true Dawgs fan will remember the impressive 22 game win streak Washington had. What many may not realize is the similarity between the great teams of the past and the current day. The success of both ere in large part to their tenacious D. Again, at Simply Seattle, we remember; especially considering UW is once again led by a suffocating defense. So much so, in fact, SC’s coach Helton says that the Dawg’s defensive strength could give them an edge against Alabama. It’s well documented about the talent that resides on the defensive side of the ball for Alabama. Quite possibly, Alabama will have 11 players drafted in the 1st or 2nd round of the NFL Draft, when it’s all said and done! At the end of the day, the outcome very well may be determined by which defense blinks first.
It promises to be an interesting game, especially since Husky pride has been reinvigorated ever since the team came under the tutelage of Head Coach Chris Peterson. Just listen to Coach Peterson back in March outlining his expectations for the season and his players, and then take a look at where they are at. As Peterson stated in that interview last spring, the Dawgs are headed in the right direction, but their mindset remains the same; take one game at a time.

With Coach “Pete” at the helm, the Huskies have a very bright future. We haven’t seen fans get this excited over a game since the early 90s when Don James, the original Dawg-Father, led the team to back to back National Championships. Perhaps Head Coach Chris Petersen represents the 2nd coming of the Dawg-Father, and maybe he’ll usher the Dawgs into a new era of national prominence.
