    Senior QB, prolific passing offense that Gilby was going to toughen up a bit, and a pretty favorable schedule. All *we had to do was let Pickett and RW steam roll tOSU and it would be smooth sailing.

    As it turned out I wanted Gilby fires and flayed at the 50 after *our first offensive series in Columbus. The hype died with me right then and there.

    That might have become the claim later on, but his 12-0 prediction for 03 started in like 2001. He stuck with it even after RN was fired, but it originated while RN was here.

    The general line of thinking was that we had absolutely killed it in recruiting in 2001 and 2002.

    I even thought Dash Crutchley was going to be a good player.

    This thread is pretty fun. It's so long now I can't remember if I already posted my confession. Here are a few things I haven't selectively forgotten:

    I stayed quiet but was cautiously optimistic about Gilby and Ty when first hired.

    I kinda bought in to the Gilby undefeated hype stirred up by Samek.

    I thought president Emmert was going to be good for the program.

    I did speak up in defense of Ty in years 1-2 when his louder critics hammered on things that didn't seem justified. One example would be his shit canning Hemphill and Braunstein, both of whom sucked so I was right. Still doogish.

    I thought UW might hire Herm Edwards.

    I liked Locker and made excuses for him, same as I did for Stanback.

    I got excited about what I saw in Sark's first game against LSU...classic moral victory.

    I thought keeping Wilcox and the rest of the staff might be a good idea when Sark left.

    I thought we might have a chance against Oregon EVERY year during the streak.

    I'm sure there were plenty of others.

    Hemphill didn't suck.

    How was he good? Just because some players on the team said he was?

    With some of the guys, it's hard to tell. It's hard to look good with shitty coaching. That said, shitty teams normally have poor talent. Hemphill did not do anything post UW to make anyone believe he was any good.

    He was the best safety on the team and produced greatly when given the opportunity.

    No tiff gonna happen. Its a matter of opinion and what each of us thought we saw. I saw a big and imposing but slow, lumbering safety that frequently came in two steps late with his head down. He got a few nice pops on guys that were already going down but couldn't make a 1 on 1 stop in the open field because he had limited quickness and bad technique. Any wr or tb could juke him out of his shoes or outrun him.

    That's just what I thought. I was excited about him as a prospect but lost the excitement quickly when I saw him play. Many others seemed to stay caught up in the hype. There were few exciting prospects coming in those days so it didn't take much in the way of talent to get people excited.
