As a lifelong Washington Huskies fan I have had some dark moments. The Ty Willingham days were some of the worst moments as a sports fan I had in my life. There was a loss to Stanford that still rings in my head during the Ty Willingham days. There was the Jake Locker loss to BYU which felt shitty, there was the 0-12 season capped off with me being in Pullman for that brutal Apple Cup.
I had heard about the 1985 loss to Oregon State as 35 point favorites but I wasn’t even born yet. But then Saturday September 4th happened. A division 1-AA team.. The Montana Grizzlies came to Seattle on the shores of Lake Washington and beat a #20 ranked Washington Husky team. Could it get lower than this? Absolutely not. This is the worse loss in the history of the Washington Huskies program. Hands down.

The Huskies became only the 2nd team in history to be a ranked Division 1 team to lose to a Division 1-AA team. The other? Well our opponents next week the Michigan Wolverines who lost to Appalachian State years ago. And here’s my fucking fear. It seems like that was a loss that ruined Michigan’s program. It feels like they still haven’t recovered. And our loss to Montana on Saturday, well it seems monumental. There were recruits at that game. They are not coming to play for Washington unless they are homegrown. This was the worse loss in history of the program. And now let’s just hope we can recover. The first game in front of fans for the Jimmy Lake era.. well at least we know it can’t get worse than this.
