Cheat sheet on UW
Wed Dec 11, 2013 11:29 am
  • Ok so after a few years of watching NFL and being a hawks fan, I've decided to try and watch more college ball.

    Decided on UW as the nearest team to Seattle.

    I need help though, aside from Keith Price & ASJ i'm essentially clueless. Oh and the new coach as well.

    I'll be watching the bowl game, who should I be looking out for as future stars?

    You're just mad the 2 programs are headed in opposite directions. Oregon had its run of conference dominance, and has no natty to show for it. They missed their window, unlike USC and UW.

  • On offense I like Stringfellow (WR) for the future. He got his shot when Williams went out with the broken leg. 6'3", 225lbs. Big body and looks like he has the bone structure to match. He's a true freshman and it was pretty exciting what he showed on the field late this season.

    I'm not as excited about our RBs outside of Sankey. Washington shows flashes, but he's fumbly. Cooper is a feel good story, so I'm pulling for him.

    Assuming Austin Seferian-Jenkins doesn't stay another year, I think Perkins has shown some real potential in receiving. He may have benefited from the extra coverage ASJ draws, but he did well with his opportunities.

    On defense I love Shaq Thompson. He was a heavily recruited Cal commit before de-committing to Cal and coming to UW when Tosh Lupoi left Cal to coach at UW. He came out of high school as a safety, but he has a big frame and has switched to LB. He's for real.

    Kikaha had a great showing this year, after a serious knee injury last year. He's an athletic 250 lb DE and fun to watch.

    Marcus Peters is one of our best DBs. My view on DB height has changed thanks to the Seahawks, so he seems short at 5'11". He's quick and has good instincts.

    Don't listen to JSea, he's just mad that his Ducks are so talented but can never seem to close the deal.

    If you're looking at guys who will be around after this season:

    RB: #12 Dwayne Washington RS FR - big running back, upright style with long speed, will put up 1k next year if Sankey goes pro
    WR: #1 John Ross FR: small jitterbug type of receiver elite speed
    WR: #9 Damore'ea Stringfellow FR: big WR, 6'3 225 as a freshman, could be an absolute beast by Jr year, and he's damn good now
    DE: #8: Hau'oli Kikaha RS JR: great FR season, then multiple blown knees, and then a huge finish to this season, could push for all Pac12 honors next season if healthy
    LB #7: Shaq Thompson SO: Obscene combination of speed and size, plays LB now, may be a S in NFL, will play at next level
    LB #41: Travis Feeney SO: Looks too tall/thin, but hits hard and really came on late this season
    CB: #21: Marcus Peters SO: Very good college CB, starting to get buzz as potential first round talent

    This team has a bright future, the concerns will be what players leave since there's always turnover with a new staff and whether they can somewhat salvage this recruiting class. It was going to be small anyway, it just can't be a total loss.

    I'm not even a UW fan really, those are just facts. Oregon has been a huge disappointment in representing the PAC, and no one can deny they're headed in the wrong direction after Chip left, and UW just massively upgraded at HC.

    How have they been a huge diss appointment representing the PAC? They lost a national title in the last minute, and then they've won the last 2 bcs games they were in. What's disappointing about that?

    As for the direction, they had a bit of a hiccup at the end of this season, but this current recruiting class might be the best ever, and they still have a ton of young talent that hasn't even played yet, and they got mariotA coming back. The future is still very bright.

  • Dang I didn't know being 10-2 is heading in the wrong direction. On top of that Oregon still clobbered UW in seattle...again.

    On topic, I wouldn't mind seeing stringfellow stay in Seattle and catch some passes from DangeRuss in a couple of years.

    Agree on those. I'd add Timu to the mix at LB, too. I like what he's bringing. He's "high motor" and doesn't cover as well as Thompson, but he plays with passion. It's fun watching him on the field.

    what basis do u have for saying he can't recruit. And the commits fleeing are a product of sark leaving, and the recruits being committed because of sark, little to do with Petersen.

    Can't recruit? And you get this from where? Certainly Boise State has trailed behind most BCS and Pac12 schools, but they still have had a few years ranked around top 50 in recruiting, amassing a number of quality 2 and 3 star recruits. But he was recruiting student athletes to BOISE. I am not sure that the best recruiter on the planet could have consistent success recruiting athletes to a non-BCS, smaller town/program like Boise State.

    Long term recruiting success is tied to success on the filed, the ability of the coaching staff to recruit - including assistant coaches, and future opportunities, whether provided by the education they received or a football program the provides training opportunity to play in the NFL. David Shaw at Stanford has all three going for him right now. Great school, winning program, NFL opportunities, and a staff that excels at recruiting. BSU was missing a few of those key components, so Petersen was limited in his recruiting. Is he a great recruiter? He may be a lot better at UW because of the advantage the school and program provide. But we really will not know if Petersen is a good recruiter until after the coaching staff is assembled, and he gets a few classes behind him. He may suck, but way too early to determine.

    The previous UW staff (Sark and company) were able to recruit a few highly regarded position players over the past few years, but the failed keeping in-state lineman in-state, especially with the quality OL the state has produced the past few years. Name recognition and program success alone will catapult Petersen into recruiting opportunities in the next few years, especially in state. We may lose some California recruiting leverage, but that has not seemingly translated into major on-field success.

    One other important clarification - Sark left with only 7 recruiting commitments confirmed, the lowest in the Pac12. Only one player has reopened their recruiting, but has not responded since the Petersen hiring. UW is starting the recruiting season WAY behind any other school in the conference. This year may be a "wash" - but I do not see where you get "running away like rats off a sinking ship"? This was shaping up to be an ugly year for UW recruiting regardless of what Sark chose to do.

    I will take a coach that can actually develop players. Sure Sark could bring in a Top 25 recruiting class but too many times did I see players who reached their peaks in their first year of playing. Petersen literally takes 2 and 3 star guys and improves them every year and a good chunk of those wind up in the NFL.

    Developing Players >>>>>> Recruiting ANY DAY in College Football.

    Besides...this is UW...plenty of reasons to commit other than the coach. I'll think we'll do fine.

    Exactly....One thing Sark didn't do well is recruit well in Washington. Homegrown talent. Yes he got the Kasen Williams and Sankey but there are more than that. Lost out on Myles Jack, etc. I hope Petersen invests more into homegrown players. Especially with top HS teams here. Sark didn't develop players - look at Price. I don't think he improved from his sophomore year on, as just one example.

    Serious question, were you smoking crack when you typed that?

    Over the better part of the last decade Boise State has produced more NFL stars than Oregon has. And he did so at BOISE STATE.

    I'm not as high on Petersen as some are, I'm not down on him either. I'm in "wait and see" mode. But that said, it is a fact that Petersen coached for Oregon, had extremely strong ties to Mike B and was even offered the Oregon head coaching job in the recent past. He turned down a then national power Oregon but jumped at the chance to coach UW. I wonder why that is?

    Regardless of how good of a coach Petersen really is, I love the fact that he turned down Oregon and USC before coming here.

    Like J said, he was offered nothing from UO. The year before when Kelly almost left for TB, UO had already scheduled the press conference to introduce Helfrich as the HC. Bellotti has no power over who gets hired at UO, I know for a fact he wanted the job and was told no thanks. So to think he could get Pete the job, when he couldn't even get it for himself is crazy.

    As for putting more NFL players, I would like to see those numbers. One thing UW fans like to ignore is that a lot of his recruits did t have the grades to get into PAC 12 schools, and if you follow recruiting at all a potential academic casualty will be rated lower, even though said recruit would be a 4-5* if he had the grades. Boise is a much easier school to get into so Pete and his staff could take those players.

    You can look at the links below. Oregon has 27 NFL players, BSU has 18. You can also look at the last link for a list of BSU recuits over the years.

  • From 2008 to 2012 BSU had four first round picks compared to one from Oregon in that span. Oregon had a pair in the 2013 draft which makes it a lot closer, now 4-3 since 2008. If you go back to 2006 it's 4-4, but then you are dealing with BSU players that Peterson didn't recruit.

    Anyway, I was wrong about the Oregon job. I did read that he interviewed for it, but I can't find any confirmation that he was offered anything. Only that he shot down USC, UCLA and Penn State.

    In interviews Petersen specifically talks about "OCGs" (our kind of guys) and specifically talks about rejecting recruits because they didn't have good grades.

    Kind of reminds me of how UW got Jim Lambright.

  • I believe the Oregon/Peterson job thing was hotter when Belliotti left, but you Duck fans are more in the know than I am.

    I'm wait and see on Petersen, but I think he's a great guy, a good coach and he has a good chance of taking the program to the next level. I love how loaded the Pac 12 is with good coaches right now.

  • It looks like all the key players have been mentioned except for the big man in the middle...DT Danny Shelton.

    The reason Bellotti left is because otherwise they probably would have lost Chip Kelly to a head coaching job somewhere else. Bellotti moving to assistant athletic director, or whatever his title was, was all about giving Chip Kelly the gig.

    When Chip was rumored to have a deal with the Tampa Bay Bucs the previous offseason to when he left to take the Eagles job there were rumors that Phil Knights jet was in Boise. But that was all just rumor as far as I know, and is as close as Peterson has ever come to having anything to do with the Oregon head coaching job.

  • Bellotti actually confirmed just last week that he asked Petersen about taking the Oregon job.

    From the Seattle Times:

    Bellotti started to recruit Petersen again, this time as his potential successor as Oregon’s head coach.

    Petersen, the head coach at Boise State at that time, was already eyeing a different Northwest school.

    “I’m not surprised at all,” Bellotti said Friday morning, after Petersen was officially named Washington’s head coach. “I’ve been in the loop the last couple days, and in the last week or two with USC and Washington. Chris and I talk — I wouldn’t say frequently, but multiple times per year about his future and what he’s going to do.

    “He had let me know years ago, five to seven years ago, that the Washington job was one that definitely held interest for him. Just the combination of recognition that maybe they could be better, in his estimation, but that they had the resources and facilities to regain the level that they had played at in the early ’90s.”

    “I talked to him about the possibility of coming back to Oregon is some capacity, even as the head coach, and he said he wasn’t as excited about that — but the Washington job was one that had always intrigued him,” said Bellotti, now an ESPN analyst.

  • Bellotti was forced to step down after 2008 in order to promote Chip.
