Rank #3: Softy and Dick H1 - Husky Honks: Dawgs win / Credit to the defense / Leading with the head / Looking at ASU

Podcast cover
Read more
It's time for the Husky Honks, each and every Tuesday at 3pm on 950 KJR with Softy, Hugh Millen, and Dick Baird. The Dawgs won last weekend, taking down the Utes 21-7. The defense deserves most of the credit in this one. We knew they were solid, but this game proved it. Utah's quarterback didn't do so well though which unquestionably helped. We continued to see some questionable hits, but it's become very apparent that the Dawgs have done a better job of teaching their players not to lead with the head. Utah is not as well-disciplined There has been a lot of hype around Arizona state, but it looks like they may not be as good as advertised. Their QB though, is much better than Utah's. Dawgs should be able to win this game, but it won't be a cake walk.

Rank #4: Softy and Dick H1 - Puka Nacua is now a Husky / Yogi Roth on the Nacua news, and all things UW / Isaiah Thomas & iconic Seattle sports calls

Podcast cover

Wide receiver Puka Nacua is now a Husky. He's one of the top receiving recruits in the country, continuing the program's recent track record of recruiting top talent at that position. Pac-12 Network's Yogi Roth discusses the Nacua news, and everything else we need to know about the 2019 recruiting class. It's Isaiah Thomas' birthday, which means it's the perfect time to reply the iconic game-winning shot call from the Pac-10 Tournament. Dixon Fain re-creates the call, and the slowcomotive version is fantastic. Is the Isaiah call the greatest in Seattle sports history, or does that belong to "The Double?"

Rank #5: Softy and Dick H1 - Frank Clark traded to Kansas City for draft picks / We saw this coming / Soren Petro with the KC perspective

Podcast cover
Read more
Big news from the VMAC today as the Seahawks have traded Frank Clark to Kansas City for a first-round pick in 2019, a swap of third-round picks, and a second-round pick in 2020. We knew this was going to happen. If not the exact deal, something similar was going to have to occur after the Hawks paid Russell Wilson what they paid him. There just wasn't going to be room under the cap to keep everyone. Franklly, the fact that they were able ot get a first round pick, and a second round pick next year when the entire league knew this was going to have to happen is impressive. We get your thoughts on the trade. Not everyone thinks we had to give Frank Clark up. How about the Kansas City side of things? Soren Petro who joined us just yesterday to talk about such a potential trade re-joins the program to tell us how people in Kansas City are reacting to the dead now that they know what it's costing them.

Rank #8: Softy and Dick H2 - Hugh Millen on Mike Leech's tweets / Petros Papadakis on Mike Leech and the World Cup / Ask Hugh

Podcast cover
Read more
Hugh Millen shares his thoughts on the Mike Leech situation. Looking at his original tweet, it seems like he might have actually been looking for a real discussion. Maybe you can even excuse him posting the video in the first place if you assume he didn't know the video was fake. Where he crosses the line is when he, instead of taking the video down and apologizes for posting it, he doubles down and gets into arguments with anyone on Twitter who dares to challenge him. At the end of the day though, it isn't appropriate for someone in his situation to make these political statements. Petros Papadakis comments on Mike Leech and the 2018 World Cup.

Rank #9: Softy and Dick H1 - Who is Jesse Biddle? / Petros Papadakis: Petros' phone number / Warriors prefer Klay doesn't play

Podcast cover
Read more
Tonight, you can hear Game 3 of the NBA Finals right here in 950 KJR, but before that, the Sounders take on the Montreal Impact. All of that means a short show for us. The Mariners lose yet again last night, and it wasn't close. Softy settled in to watch the game, and as yet another reliever took to the mound he had one thought: "Who's Jesse Biddle?" The roster has turned over so much this year that it's hard to keep track of who's even on the roster anymore. Even if you follow the team for your job like we do, roster moves, trades, guys being optioned, DFA'ed; sometimes it slips past the radar. Jesse Biddle is 27. He's not the next big thing. So why is he here? Let's bring up some of our future guys and see what they have. Petros Papadakis gets moved up an hour today. He gives out his phone number on the show. The Warriors would prefer that Klay Thompson doesn't play tonight. It seems like it would still be best if he warmed up before the game to see how he felt. How many injuries can Golden State handle while still remaining the dominant team they've been?

Podcast cover

As Jake Browning's college career at UW draws closer to an end, the question has been asked more and more often; what will his legacy be at the University of Washington? He's the first quarterback in school history to lead a team to a college football playoff, but he's also known for coming up short in big games. Now, after a season that at this point looks to have fallen short of expectations, some have further questions about how he'll be remembered in the history of Husky football. Softy and Dick Fain share their thoughts, and take calls from Husky fans all hour on the subject.

It's Pick #1 in our Predict the Pick contest, and N'Keal Harry is off the board. The M's beat the Angels last night and are now 6-1 on the season. Felix did well, but did he do well enough to prove anything this season? We're going to probably need to see at least another couple of outings like that to know for sure, but it is a good start. Jaylen Nowell has declared for the Draft, but could we see him back on the court for the Dawgs next season? We ask The San Jose Mercury News' Jon Wilner about that, plus what's going on with the UCLA coaching job? Textimonials on the Heritage Distilling Text Line react to Felix's pitching, and Russell Wilson's contract deadline.

Rank #13: Softy and Dick H1 - Hugh Millen guest hosting / It's Russ' franchise / It was the logical next step / Mike Holmgren reacts

Podcast cover
Read more
Hugh Millen is in once again as Dick is still on vacation. After all the hype, the panic, the flurry of opinions on both sides, the debate is over and the question has been answered. Russell Wilson late last night announced (somewhat awkwardly) on Twitter that he has reached a deal with the Seahawks. It is, of course, the biggest deal in NFL history, demonstrating that this is in fact his franchise now. After all of the rumors, all of the things supposedly argued for, the most logical contract is what we got. This deal could have been done months ago, but it looks liek teh Seahawks won. What does longtime Seahawk coach Mike Holmgren think of all this? He weighs in with his thoughts. Softy says he feels some level of pride knowing that one of our guys is the highest paid guy in the league, knowing full well it is all about timing. Does anyone else feel that way?

Rank #14: Softy and Dick H1 - Thoughts on the Dawgs season after yesterday / Petersen needs to evolve / D-Line coach Clint Hurtt

Podcast cover
Read more
Well the Rose Bowl didn't go as hoped. It's not terribly surprising that the Dawgs lost, but it would have been nice if they'd have been competitive throughout the entire game. Nonetheless, it's hard to ignore all of the team's accomplishments over the last several years. Where do you stand on the Dawgs today; disappointed in what happened yesterday, and their continued struggles in big games, or proud of what this team's accomplished, being one of only very few to have had this much success? Jake Browning gets a lot of criticism for not being able to get it done in big games, but this started before Browning. Chris Petersen needs to evolve, but he's almost certainly up for the challenge. The Seahawks are still alive and about to head to Dallas for a playoff game. Defensive line coach Clint Hurtt talks about the defense's accomplishments, preparing for the Cowboys, and playing big games on the road.

Rank #16: Softy and Dick H1 - Husky Honks with Hugh Millen and Dick Baird - Legion of Tomb / Poise in the pocket / The old men of BYU

Podcast cover
Read more
The Huskies did something they haven't done much in the last couple of decades. They beat the Sun Devils! The defense looked absolutely solid, led by BBK. The secondary may be the best they've ever been, Hugh calls them the Legion of Tomb (as in tombstone). The offense looked better, especially the line, and Browning had a new poise in the pocket, but the criticism of him continues, and likely will until he's able to prove himself against a top tier team. This week the Dawgs face BYU, a big, strong, and older team that have been a bit of a surprise this season.

Rank #20: Softy and Dick H1 - Hugh Millen co-hosting / Murphy's Law / M's still rolling / Hugh answers Dick's questions about the Dawgs

Podcast cover
Read more
It was a crazy start to the show, perfect for a Friday on a holiday week. The show was supposed to be broadcasting from Jimmy's..... but things didn't go as planned. On the way back to the studio, Dick got stuck behind someone trying to parallel park who'd clearly never done it before. Oh, and someone stole a delivery truck and ended up down on the waterfront, further messing up traffic. It pretty much epitomizes Murphy's Law. Finally though, the show is underway. Softy is still out; Hugh Millen is in today. The M's won again last night (Dick also had technical problems at home ...because that's just how the last 24 hours have gone). Today, the team signed Dipoto to a contract extension. We talk a little Husky football with Hugh. Without Will Dissly, and possibly no Hunter Bryant, what does the pass-catching group look like? On the defensive side, who's going to hit the quarterback?
