OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS

After falling to #2 in the rankings, the Michigan Wolverines received some more disappointment over the weekend as they fell 17-16 on a last second field goal to the 25th ranked Penn State Nittany Lions. This loss opened up the B1G East and set up a potential deciding game in the final week between Michigan and long time rival and 7th ranked, Ohio State.

SOMEONE HAS GOTTA DO IT

As the AFC North tries to figure out who really wants to win the division and play in the playoffs, the battle heats up as Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Baltimore all win their respective games. The Pittsburgh Steelers will play Monday night to see if they can remain tied with Baltimore for the lead at 6-6.

STARS OF TOMORROW

Recruiting season begins to wind down but there are still some major decisions to be made as teams look to fill out their classes. Will these players be able to live up to the hype? Or will they crumble under the pressure of expectations. Stay tuned to find out.

EASTBOUND AND DOWN

The battle for the NFC East remains hot as well, for all the right reasons as both the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys picked up wins on Sunday. The Eagles beat the Falcons 31-28 and the Cowboys beat the Panthers 31-20, making the NFC South a bloodbath as well as the league heads towards the playoffs.

    Washington Huskies Announce 2020 Starting QB

    Today, I am here with True Freshman Jake Davis to announce that he will be the starting QB for the 2020 Washington Huskies.  It was a tough battle this offseason between him and Redshirt freshman Samuel Connor, but I personally believe in Jake Davis's skills as a pocket passer, and his ability to grow the team and everyone around him.  We will both be available for questions as needed.

    Do you think Jake Davis can get Washington to a bowl game?

    We have a very talented roster this year, and I have hopes to maybe fight for a  bowl game, but honestly all we can do is take it one game at a time.  I know Jake has been focusing on our game versus New Mexico, but I think we all have aspirations to actually make a bowl game this year.

    Why did you invest so much in recruiting jake when you had a young qb with similiar talent, seems like you could have filled other holes?

    Samuel Connor is a hell of a passer, but when you have the opportunity to get someone with the talent and skill set of Jake Davis, I don't see why not hesitate to get out top tier talent at the biggest position in a football team?  Nor did I really lose out on recruitment last year.  I'm extremely happy with my recruitment class last year.  I believe it was ranked 27th in the nation.  Coming as the coach of NC State, I know how difficult it is with bad coaching bad QB play weighing down a team.  With Jake Davis, I know I can trust him, and he gives me a hell of a chance to win not just now, but as he develops and into the future.

    What separated Davis from Conner in practice?

    (oops i entirely missed this)

    Well when it came down to it, they were neck and neck in practice, it's just that Davis showed more flashes of potential throughout.  I thought of redshirting him, but I figured he'd work well getting game time with little to no expectations on the team.
