‘16 in Review: Did UW really want Alabama?

‘16 in Review: Did UW really want Alabama?

You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you might find: You still want ‘Bama As we turn the page and focus our attention on this fall, here’s one last look back at one of the stories that shaped 2016 season... I said it. I think a lot of Husky fans said it: “I want the Rose Bowl. Alabama will kill us.” And so it was; UW fell semi-flat against USC at home and the College Football Playoff dreams were quietly extinguished. Still, this team had played seemingly perfect games week in and week out. It wasn’t going to hold up. There wasn’t really anything to be...

the Gekko Files: previewing USC football in 2017

the Gekko Files: previewing USC football in 2017

Hey, did you hear that USC won the Rose Bowl? I get it. The PAC 12 is the conference that USC built. At least, that’s the way that many pundits - particularly those on the east coast - see it. It is a fact, however, that the predecessor to the PAC 12 - the old Pacific Coast Conference - was founded by UW, Oregon, Cal, and what is now Oregon State back in 1915 ... seven full years before USC joined it. That is all ancient history. The conference has gone through several iterations since then and USC has been a dominating - if not the dominating - presence since 1922. Take a quick run...

the Gekko Files: previewing Washington State football in 2017

Expectations have a way of ruining the good times. As painful (for some) as they were, the days of Bill Doba and Paul Wulff brought with them a sense of clarity for the discerning WSU football fan. One simply expected a certain level of Cosmo Kramer-ish comedy to befall the program each season. If, by chance, a Rodney Dangerfield / “don’t get no respect” kind of year came along, it was that much more enjoyable. That kind of clarity is a beautiful thing. It allows its participants to focus on the things that are really important to them. For WSU, those things might include the ESPN...

the Gekko Files: previewing Utah Utes football in 2017

There are good slopes in Utah, right? Utah is good for many things. Great hiking. Stellar mountain biking. Unbelievable natural terrain. Interesting microbrews. And, of course, skiing. I like skiing. Always have. To engage in such an athletic endeavor hosted within an alpine setting has always produced a natural high for me. Literally. The thing about skiing, however, is the lingering danger. Mountains are not inherently safe places. Trails that dead end in inescapable spots, trees just daring you to hit them head on and, of course, the risk of avalanche for those who venture...
