Here's kind of a fun off-season thing from ESPN.com, which is soliciting fans of every college team for their help in defining what they think is the "Face of the Program.''
Here's the link, and the apparent idea is for fans to suggest what they think is the greatest defining image of the program they follow.
Not a lot of responses so far, but I would probably have to agree with those who have suggested Don James. College programs are inevitably defined by their coaches since the players turn over so rapidly, and while I know there are some who might suggest that Jim Owens had as big an impact on UW as did James --- that without Owens there couldn't have been James --- I think James' overall record just speaks a little more loudly. The guy who wrote in that Husky Stadium itself is the real face of the program might not be far off, either. Just don't tell all the people who want to bulldoze it.
