I've spent the past four years covering football, basketball, track, women's soccer, women's golf and baseball, all at the collegiate level. I also interned at 710 ESPN Seattle on the Kevin Calabro Show and worked at Hollister Inc as a "model" where I convinced parents their children would love them if they bought overpriced T-shirts. When not talking or writing about sports you'll often engrossed in one of my first two loves: Alaskan Amber and South Park. I've lived in Seattle's U-District for four years now and have never even SEEN a mugging (Shout out to the Spokesman Review's Christian Caple). I'm fluent in over six million forms of communication, but never really grasped Spanish. Oh, here's my list, just in case you wanted to ask. 1. Kanye 2. Tupac 3. Bruce Springsteen 4. Lupe 5. Pearl Jam 6. Early Puccini (Before he sold out) 7.My roommate Bill's shower EP 8. Billy Joel 9. Nas 10. Biggie Follow me on Twitter: @Jacob_B_Thorpe

Sitting at 3-4, the Huskies still have a chance to make a season of it, but it will take some drastic changes, while the team licks its wounds from a brutal 52-17 loss at Arizona.
For all the apprehension surrounding the schedule and unease regarding whether or not quarterback Keith Price will begin to play as well as he did last season, it's easy to forget that the Huskies are ahead of schedule.
Despite Washington's lack of recent success against Oregon, the hate that fuels the bitter rivalry remains strong.
Justin Wilcox has the Washington Huskies playing great defense, but are they for real?
Following a dominating win over Portland State, and a bye, the product Steve Sarkisian puts on the field against Stanford will tell us who the Huskies really are.
Back in 2009, when Washington faced off against LSU, it signaled the start of a new era in Husky football. Fresh off a 0-12 season, the Huskies had an energetic new coach, Steve Sarkisian, who had previously been the offensive coordinator at USC.
