This One is on Me

I was at the game last night, and there is plenty of blame to go around for the debacle that occurred. Despite a nice comeback, UW fell short, and the reality of needing to win the Pac-10 tournament to make March Madness is officially here. USC presents so many matchup problems for the small Washington guards, which made our offense look completely out of sync. Mike Gerrity, the Trojan point guard and leader on the floor, really takes control of the offense; he killed us last night. There are numerous reasons why UW lost for just the second time at Hec Ed this year, but really this one is on me, and here’s why.

In the past 3 seasons, Washington is a combined 46-10 at home, with a conference home record of 18-8 over that stretch. I have attended exactly one game each of the past 3 seasons, and each time we have lost. In 07-08, I witnessed a loss to the Lopez twins and Stanford. In 08-09, I sat courtside for the Cal triple-OT loss, and now last night, for just the third conference home loss in 2 seasons, I was there to see it as well. So stop pointing fingers for last night’s loss, because this one is on me. To Washington nation, I am truly sorry.

    That’s some bad juju bro.

    You know, now that you mention it, I think they’ve won every game I’ve gone to except for the ones with you. You do have a little better luck in football though.

  3. I’ve never seen the Husky basketball team lose in person. Like Matthew said, football is a different story.

    Yeah, you did witness Mason Foster and the “Defeat by the Cleat” epic this season, along with me falling three rows in an unabashed display of Husky euphoria. I still don’t remember Foster scoring on that play…

  5. That, USC, WSU, and Cal this year made up for the endless losses the Long brothers witnessed together.
