I think our program had hit their ceiling under Petersen. Good on his part to recognize that he wasn’t the one to take us over the top. I also love how he finally showed confidence on his way out saying this program will win the Pac-12 and there is plenty of talent to get over the top.
Loved everything I heard from Lake about being aggressive on offense and special teams. How in his office he has one TV on NFL games, the other on college trying to find the next great defense/offense. He made a reference he suggest offensive plays to Pete and joked see it works the Seahawks scored a TD on that.
With recruiting I expect the landing 3 star table scraps from Texas strategy to finally die off and focus much more on southern Cal which we always should have done.
I feel like this is a Bellotti to Kelly transition. Where Bellotti had Oregon as a solid program but you always felt they could do much more. Then Kelly came along and their run from 2009-2014 they were the #1 team in SRS during that stretch. I expect UW to be in the playoffs sometime soon under Lake.
