Was in Section 311, so thankfully I was shielded by the absurd amount of wind and rain in the first half. I'm right by the edge of the South Stands, and I looked left and there was hundreds of gallons of water flying horizontally every second. A lot of old schoolers are saying that was the craziest wind/rain they've seen in Husky Stadium since the infamous Hurricane Game against USC. The folks in the lower bowl got completely drenched, and with the wind, we had a ton of people bailing at halftime because they were probably in danger of hypothermia. (A poncho over jeans or soft shells weren't going to cut it last night; you needed to dress like all-rubber, like Maine Lobsterman in a Nor'Easter, of else you were soaked to the bone.)
That's also why the passing games were shut down for the most part in the first half. We got one-dimensional for a while, but Sark didn't want to risk throwing it in those conditions, and I couldn't blame him. You've got a two-possession lead on a foe that's dealing with the weather worse than you are. Play it safe, kick it away, and play field position on a day like that. Sankey only had four rushes last week, so hopefully it averages out a bit better. Callier is coming along nicely, he can spell Sankey more. Once Dwayne Washington learns ball security, we can put him in more often, too. And Cooper is still learning how to trust his legs again (can you blame him?), but once he's up to speed, he could be a beast.
