I talked a lot of s**t this week about the Huskies. I’m not gonna lie. Nor am I gonna turn a blind eye to the things that I’ve said. I wouldn’t take back a word of it, either. It is what it is and there’s no amending the brashness that was spewed all over these pages, social networking sites, bathroom walls here and there, et cetera.
Face it, in spite of the hype, the University of Washington football team did very little to back up the uber-confidence displayed by their fans on Saturday. That’s not to judge the ballclub in any way. They played their hardest and they tried. They just didn’t get the job done. It happens. We need to take losses in stride because very few teams out there have ever won every game they participated in.
That said, one look at my Facebook news feed tells me everything I need to know about the buildup surrounding the 2010 Huskies. In short, fans drank the Kool-Aid, boasted pregame, and were absolutely let down around 7:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time on September 4th. Hey, I’m right there with you. The difference between you and me is that I made my opinions much more public. And for that, I need to face the music.
