The Washington Huskies have been rewarded for their improved, yet still mediocre, season with a trip to the Holiday Bowl. Unfortunately for the Huskies, they will be matched up with the also unfortunate Nebraska who beat the bejezuz out of the Huskies 56-21 earlier in the season. Not much of a reward for Nebraska who finished the season with a respectable 10-3 record and a #18 ranking. The earlier meeting was as much of a one sided domination as I have seen any college team other than Washington State take. What's worse is that it was a home game for the UW. There's no reason to think it won't be a worse beating in a neutral location. Still, if anyone were to offer me free tickets and transportation to/from warm San Diego I'd be there yelling myself hoarse. And even if it turns into the severe beating I'm expecting, it's still better than not being in a bowl. Hopefully the extra practice and extra television coverage will help the team be more experienced next year and help with recruiting. I'm hoping that this is a sign of better things to come next year and into the future.
