Scheduling Difficulties 2008

August 27, 2008

Tyrone Willingham supposedly needs to win this season to stay as the coach of the Huskies, but the schedule isn't doing him any favors.

<blockquote>For the second season in a row, the Huskies play one of the country's hardest schedules. Washington coach Tyrone Willingham can't afford another nonwinning season after a 4-9 mark in 2007, but the Huskies probably have a very difficult time getting to .500 playing a murderer's row of opponents.<p>Washington opens the season with a Pac-10 road game at Oregon on Aug. 30, then plays home games against BCS hopeful BYU and defending Big 12 champion Oklahoma. Anything other than a 0-3 record to start the season would be an achievement. An Oct. 25 home game against Notre Dame – Willingham's former employer – rounds out the nonconference schedule.</p></blockquote>The way that Willingham has turned things around from the mess (with regards to discipline) that Rick Neuheisel left and Keith Gilbertson had to inherit, I'd be trying to find ways to get him to stay not to leave. I'm not an alumni, but UW should be known for being a good school all around not for the embarassment that their football team was becoming.
