Fig Jam Oh… we aren’t.  Ok.  Let’s still drink though.   Hey Cougars.

The UW coaching search is not off to a great start

Fig Jam So far, I have been fairly nonplussed with Scott Woodward’s stint as the University of Washington Athletic Director.  He doesn’t seem to get it sometimes.  Now in the process of hiring the new football coach and making his biggest decision to date, that trend seems to be continuing.  That is my reaction to […]
