NWSB Insider and UW Huskies blogger Chris Hall gives us five fearless predictions for the 2012-13 Washington Huskies season. After the loss in the Apple Cup, UW needs to get revenge by beating Washington State twice. Austin Sefarian-Jenkins will shift his focus to football, Aziz N’Diaye will have a breakout season and the team will make the NCAA March Madness Tournament.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Phil The Bartender Slater weighs in with his 2012 BC Lions season preview and predictions. Of course he expects Geroy Simon, Travis Lulay, Andrew Harris, Byron Parker and Lin-J Shell to be great. If the O-Line stays healthy, reigning MOP QB Travis Lulay will be able to focus on his solid receiving corps. A repeat championship performance for BC.
Seattle Redhawks Hoops blogger Jason Green points out the obvious. While Seattle does return leading scorers Aaron Broussard (14.5 ppg last season) and Sterling Carter (13.8 ppg last season) the Redhawks simply need to shoot the rock better than they did in 2010 for the 2011/12 season to be a real success.
Our man on the Vancouver Canucks beat C-Mac tells us players on the cusp last year, especially Keith Ballard, Cody Hodgson and Victor Oreskovich need to step up. This should be another promising and exciting run to the Stanley Cup, but whether the team has the patience to stick with such plans remains to be seen.
