Washington Football 2011: 5 Worst-Case Scenarios for 2011

0 of 5

    Washington fans are some of the most tenacious out there. Any fans that can weather a 0-12 season and still cheer their team on is deserving of a medal.

    Only recently the Dawgs have started to come back from the void but there are still some pitfalls that could hold them back. Here are the five worst-case scenarios the Dawgs could face in the 2011 season. 

No Reliable Quarterback

1 of 5

    Keith Price and Nick Montana have never led the Huskies for any significant length of time. The Pac-12 can be an unforgiving testing ground for an inexperienced signal caller.

    If neither one is ready for the responsibility, it could mean a LONG season at UW. 

Defense Becomes Swiss Cheese

    The UW defense is no longer in foster care. Last year, outstanding linebacker Mason Foster was the glue that held together a mediocre Husky defense.

    Without his leadership and playmaking ability, the rest of the defense needs to be prepared to step up—if not, avert your eyes. 

Losing the Apple Cup

    It gives any Husky fan chills to even contemplate such an outcome.

    This would undoubtedly be the most painful game to lose—quite possibly causing Nick Holt’s head to actually explode. 

Washington Gets Hit with Probation

4 of 5

    Well with USC, Ohio State, Auburn, North Carolina and Oregon already in the NCAA’s crosshairs, no school is safe.

    While no allegations have been remotely linked to Washington, in this day and age, you never know. 

Husky Mascot Gets Changed to a Bichon Frise

    In these rough economic times even colleges are looking to save money where they can.

    Changing the mascot from a Husky to a Bichon Frise would save the university a hefty chunk of change manufacturing the uniform and also on upkeep.

    As a positive byproduct, how could you deny a face like that?
