Be sure to check out tomorrow's column. I'm not going to hide in some dusty corner, PeteTheChop. And I'm not going to write something I don't believe just to stay on the pro-Willingham side and support my previous misjudgment. That's not my style.
Call it flip-flopping or seeing the light or being fed up with the losing or whatever. I don't care. In sports, all opinions tend to change once the results accumulate.
And also, to address your other question, PeteTheChop, I've never been on board with the idea that missing out on the chance to hire Jim Mora was an irredeemable mistake. There are a lot of true college coaches who can win here. (They likely won't have Mora's ties to the program, however, unless UW can convince Gary Pinkel to take the job.) The question is whether the Huskies can convince one of them to come.
One final thought: I'm never on any bandwagon. I think for myself. I don't want to be on the Bash Willingham Bandwagon, just as I didn't want to be on the Keep Ty For His Entire Contract Bandwagon (a much, much smaller group). I don't write to be accepted by any group. I'm not a screamer, either, so I'm usually the last one to rant uncontrollably. I just write my opinion.
If I'm right, I'm right. I won't gloat about those.
If I'm wrong, I'm willing to admit it. And not just in cyberspace.
