NWSB Insider and Washington Husky blogger Brandon Choate brings us his first edition of bye week blues for the 2013 season.

NWSB Insider and Washington Huskies’ football blogger Chris Hall talks about what to expect when the Huskies host Boise State for their opening game of 2013. Whiel expectations for both teams are quite lofty for the next year, the first game of the season will undoubtedly prove at least some of each team’s worth.

NWSB Insider and Washington Huskies football blogger Chris Hall is back to tell us all about the top WR recruit the Huskies just landed, Damore’ea Stringfellow. As he briefly spoke about in a previous post, Stringfellow is out of California, and regarded as the best WR in the recruiting class. A player with athletic talent, he will give Keith Price another target to throw to, that is if he doesn’t red shirt, like Chris believes will happen. Stringfellow has the ability to out-muscle, and out-jump DB’s across the Pac-12 spectrum, which will be a plus for a below average QB like Price turned out to be last season.
