    The truth of the matter is; any other year we would have lost today's game. If this is their worst play then it's gonna be a great year.

    I think he would do the same. I dont think Alexander would do as good on any other team.

    Thats just my opinion

    The players can do the job but Holmgren is often outcoached. Better coaches recognize his tendencies and take advantage of him late in games. I agree that he should keep the pedal to the metal for 4 quarters every game instead of getting a lead and 'prevent-defensing' us into a heart attack at the end of the game.

    I am encouraged that coaches around the league are showing some more balls lately by going for 2 point conversions at the end of games instead of the dreaded sister-kissing ties and the inevitable boring OT. College does OT better by giving each team a chance.

    Hopefully this is the year the SeaLice actually become the SeaHawks!

    Speir61, I totally agree with you about Holmgren playing very conservatively in the second half. I think playing conservatively is fine, draw their safeties close to the line to stop the run and short pass, but then let it fly every once in a while. Not only will that often be explosively successful, but it serves to keep the safeties more honest, making the conservative game more effective.

    It hasn't really hurt the Hawks so far, but look at what it did to Doba and the Cougs this year. They are the best 4 win team in the country...I really believe they could have been 10-1 just as easily, if Doba would have played a more aggressive 2nd half.

    How can you call this a sport,sitting on your butt going around in circles for three or four hours at a time. Hell, even old fat men like me could do it.

    Try sitting in the seat of a performance go-cart for 9 minutes and then answer that. Sitting behind the wheel of one of those monsters for a few hours must be draining to say the least.

    Ever here of something called centrifugal force. I personally ahve raced cars before and not go-carts. Quartermidgets is what ive raced. The most ive sweated in my life was in one 40 lap race in 80 degrees and my arms felt like i had just done 1000 pushups. Bottomline, never get in a fight with a racecar driver.

    I reckon I done opened a can of worms on this one....

    In addition to the "normal" sports out there, I consider anything where you are competing/participating and have the likely possibility of grave bodily injury or death a sport... And yes, those guys sweat like mad, most are in great shape and do a lot of Physical Training.

    As an aside, the UW chess team is putting up a stink because they want to get money from the athletic fund - the same fund as pays for football, basketball, ultimate frisbee etc. So far it looks like a Nay from the Athletic board...:clown:
