College Football: Washington Huskies at No. 1

Frank D.P.Contributor IFebruary 13, 2008


Well it’s probably not a No. 1 they want.

Olin Buchanan at says nobody wants underachiever label and gives his list of the five college football programs that have underachieved in the last five years.

The Huskies and their 18-41 record over the last five seasons finish ahead of Syracuse, Alabama, Notre Dame, and North Carolina for the unflattering ranking.

But hey it’s the Huskies so I say congrats!

The Puget Sound area won’t challenge Texas as a breeding ground for blue-chip prospects, but the Huskies did well enough to post 26 consecutive non-losing seasons from 1977-2002. That includes a 1991 national championship and an 11-1 No. 3 finish in 2000. The Huskies have gone just 18-41 and have not managed a winning season in the past five years.
