A few thoughts on today's story

Posted by Bob Condotta

Today's story elicited some vast, heated, and mixed reaction, so I'll try to respond to a few of the general questions that have arisen.

Why now? We wrote the story now simply because it was timely now. There remained a lot of questions about what happened, and why, and since we had what we thought was some new information that would lend a new perspective to it, we published it now. Simple as that.

Why don't you write something like this about the Cougars? I would argue that we treat all the sports teams that we cover fairly, and in the same light. But for general questions about our coverage, you should ask our sports editor Cathy Henkel, whose e-mail address is

Why are you always picking on the Huskies? I would argue, as some commenters have done, that the story isn't necessarily "positive'' or "negative'' but is simply just reporting what is there. Again, there were some questions about what happened, and why, and this is some of what we found when we looked into it more deeply.

As for the blog, happy to get back to "more mundane'' football matters now, so in that light, want to make sure you saw ESPN's list of the top 10 individual college football seasons that includes Al Worley's 14 interceptions in 1968 at No. 6. That's three more than UW had this season as a team.
