NWSB Insider and UW hoops writer Clinton Bell brings us the question of “is coach Romar on the hot seat?” Honestly this all depends on how sympathetic the AD wants to be, as Romar has had to go through the motions this year without two of his best scorers from last year in Terrence Ross and Tony Wroten. He still has CJ Wilcox, but the team cannot rely on one players back to carry the rest of this team. Clinton thinks that Romar’s day’s are limited, and if he doesn’t get shown the door after this season, he will be very soon.
NWSB Insider and Washington Huskies football blogger Chris Hall talks about his top five recruits inked on National Signing Day. His number one is a kicker. But, as Chris points out, a good team needs to have at least a decent special teams, and Cameron Van Winkle can, and will, put the Huskies in a better position than they were last year.

NWSB Insider and Washington Huskies football blogger Chris Hall talks about five offseason objectives for the Washington Huskies to accomplish. Washington has lots of talent and depth at quarterback, so should Sark choose to come into 2013 with a new starter, there are options.

NWSB Insider and UW hoops writer Clinton Bell tells us his over and under achiever for the 2012/2013 University of Washington Huskies men’s basketball team. The easy, and even obvious choice for over achiever is CJ Wilcox. Leading the team in scoring, he was the man who needed to step up his game more than anybody else with the departures of Tony Wroten and Terrence Ross to the NBA after last season. Aziz N’Diaye is another overachiever.
NWSB Insider and Washington Huskies blogger Clinton Bell gives us his analysis, preview, predictions, and breakdown for the upcoming MAACO Las Vegas Bowl matchup between the Huskies and the Boise St. Broncos this Saturday. Things aren’t looking too good for the Huskies in Clinton’s opinion. The Broncos are just too good, and they have better weapons both offensively and defensively. This game could get ugly early, but let’s hope not.
NWSB Insider and Washington Huskies blogger Clinton Bell gives us five things that he is watching for in the Maaco Las Vegas Bowl this Saturday against the Boise St. Broncos. First off, what ever happened in the 4th quarter of the Apple Cup needs to be addressed, fixed, and never allowed to happen ever again. If the Huskies can take the Broncos out of their game, and put the ball into Bishop Sankey’s, this game could be ours to win.
NWSB Insider and Washington Huskies blogger Clinton Bell gives us five tough questions that he would like addressed by coach Sark himself before the bowl game. First off, how in the world did we allow a bad Cougars team to overcome an 18 point 4th quarter lead to win this game? Second, when will the penalties stop, they are killing us. The Huskies are a good team, but not a great one yet, and these questions prove that.
