    Greatest coach in Husky history. One of the all time greatest coaches to have ever lived.

    @TDESPN Though, you did say the other night you cannot win the SB riding a defense. Even though you are literally the poster child for that. --twittered back at dilfer after he tried to slam hawks fans.
