With Ted Miller off to ESPN enjoy Jerry Brewer of the Times while he is in Seattle because he, like Ted, is headed to the big time one of these days.
My contention is that, because the Huskies are such an unknown commodity, we can't start marking off wins and losses just yet. Unless something dramatic happens, we probably can say that the Huskies won't beat Oklahoma and USC. Beyond that, I just don't know. I have to see the team play first. Having a winning record with this schedule won't be easy, but when will it ever be? The Pac-10 is always going to be a nine-game grind. The Huskies are always going to play a challenging non-conference schedule on top of that. If the team is good enough, it will win. If not, it won't. Simple as that. I do think the Pac-10 won't be as much of a bear this season. Beyond USC and Arizona State, I see a lot of question marks.
