Hey UW fans... you're royally screwed!

Casey's Washington Huskies are screwed. This year's game between UW and the EWU Eagles has already been put on the "upset watch list" on the Bleacher Report for FCS and FBS inter-classification matchups.

While no doubt, Casey will come up with some cop-put half EWU-half UW jersey like this one, I will give no such respect to the University of Washington. You may remember that I lost a bet to Casey when UW beat WSU in the Apple Cup last year and I still owe him a "Carlton Dance" video which is roughly almost 8 months late in production, but it's coming!

Now Eag fans, check this wonderful bit of writing out...

You may know Eastern Washington’s football program best from their decision to install red turf on their football field. Whether the red turf is a genius decorative move or a cheap Boise State rip off is up for debate.

Regardless, Eastern Washington is a FCS power and is the reigning FCS National Champions. The Eagles have sent players to the NFL, most recently running back Taiwan Jones. Jones was selected by Oakland in the fourth round of the 2011 NFL draft.

Washington returns a sizeable amount of personnel from last season’s Holiday Bowl team, but the Huskies could still fall to Eastern Washington. Quarterback Jake Locker must be replaced. Expect running back Chris Polk to emerge as the featured talent in the Huskies offense.

Washington hosts Hawaii in Week 2, and then travels to Nebraska in Week 3. Hawaii and Nebraska are two higher profile opponents, but Eastern Washington will test this transitioning Huskies team.
