    Krauser turned the ball over a lot and telegraphed a bunch of his passes so losing him isn't anything serious. The one thing that might be bad is Aaron Gray because he was really out shape and missed a bunch of short shots. I think we're going to be great though.

    I talked about this in some other threads already, but Washington fans were pretty excited to hear that we were going to play Pitt the next two seasons. Once PAC-10 play starts we don't get the opportunity to play many non-conference games. We only get about 1 or 2 chances and like to have a formidable opponent. I think we got one and then some this year.

    Word is that Pitt is pretty good about taking care of business at home. We match up in February I believe, so if both teams are playing to expectations, this game could have a pretty big impact on tournament seeding.

    Hopefully we give you all a good game. We will need some guys to step up to fill Brandon Roy's shoes, but supposedly the underclassmen are talented. The last few years have been wierd for Husky fans, having a basketball team that is consistantly in the top 20 and a football team that is no where near it.

    A formidable oppent.. you play UofA twice a year I don't think you could ask for a more formidable oppenent UA had a down year last year, things will be better this year!

    I really followed Pitt when Howland was the coach. I had an opportunity to meat with him when he was coaching at Northern Arizona University because I had thought about trying out for the team, but intramurals were more fun and didn't require all of the practicing

    Come time for March Madness I always have Pitt going deep into the tournament and I think they'll be deep into the tournament again this year!

    No disrespect for Arizona or any other PAC-10 team intended. I was refering to formidable non-conference opponents. UW boosters are excited to see that they are seeking out some non-conference games that give us the chance to see how we stack up against some big boys outside of our conference as well. We hadn't done very much of that before as the only way we used to be able to come close to a .500 season was to line up a bunch of non-conference patsies. So seeing that we have signed up to play a team like Pitt with that opening is encouraging because it shows that our program believes in itself enough to play a tough team like Pitt wven though it doesn't have to.

    I would never diss the Wilcats in B-ball. The PAC-10 is a much rougher league than most people outside of the West coast believe IMO. There is an incredible amount of equality amongst the schools which leads to all the teams cannabalizing each others records in conference play. It makes it a fun conference to follow because there is no perenial champion anymore.
