OK, this will be an interesting contest.
Steve Sarkisian gets the LSU Tigers for his debut as a head coach? No bueno.
But the Huskies will have slightly better personnel than last year, and an experience Jake Locker. Won't that mean something?
Any guesses on this? It's not like LSU was great last year, right?
LSU will win, just too fast and too much talent compared to the upstart Huskies.
But I predict closer than most will think.
UW use to get great fan support, I'll be curious to see if the fans give this crew a chance. It's been two years since they have seen a win.
If LSU can get their qb situation under control this will be ugly. Miles has been a really good recruiter and his cupboard is full. Washington, not so much.
Meanwhile Appalachian State qb has mower roll backwards over his foot. ouch!
Hey, Beckon, big ups on the great knowledge about App. St. QB. Love those kinda posts.
The focus will be on Locker, who has the tools but only played 4 games last year before sitting out the last 8 with an injury. But the Huskies' defense is a huge problem. Last year's defense was the worst in UW history -- even the wretched WSU Cougars beat them and there have been no notable additions to the defensive roster. It's hard to see how LSU won't be able to move the ball on them.
My biggest two biggest fears. Being bitten by a pygmy rattlesnake while at or a foot slips under a mower. EEEEEEKKKKKSSSSS
Rattlesnake Bites Man At Wal-Mart
Man In Critical Condition After Reaction To Antivenom

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- A man bitten by a snake at a Wal-Mart store in St. Augustine, Fla., is in critical condition after having a reaction to antivenom medication.
According to the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office report, a pygmy rattlesnake bit Jeriel Joiner, 27, on the hand as he reached under a display of ferns to retrieve a baby bottle.
Witnesses said the snake was still on Joiner's pinky finger when he pulled his hand out.
Jeremy Robshaw, of St. Johns County Fire-Rescue, said firefighters arrived at the garden center of Wal-Mart Tuesday afternoon and took Joiner to Flagler Hospital for treatment. He was then transferred to the intensive care unit of the Shands Medical Center.
Robshaw said Joiner's hand had swollen to the size of a baseball glove.
Firefighters captured the snake and positively identified it as a pygmy rattlesnake.
Ashley Hardie from Wal-Mart's corporate office said the garden center of the St. Augustine store was closed off while animal control officials and a wildlife expert combed the area looking for any other snakes. She said safety of customers is Wal-Mart's top priority.
Wal-Mart said the store reopened the garden center Wednesday afternoon after being cleared by authorities.
In the past three years, snake bites have been reported at Wal-Mart garden centers in Viera, Sanford, and Pembroke Pines, Fla.
Pygmy rattlesnakes are found across the southeastern United States and are most commonly encountered by humans in the late summer months.
