A Graves Hall Tradition
Last Friday, we received at Graves Hall the final piece of what has been a long-standing tradition here at Washington - a Nebraska pennant.
Every year, staffers in athletics communications hang pennants of all the teams Washington football will play in the upcoming season near the ceiling of the Communications Room. All of the Pac-10 pennants we've had for a while, and there was a bit of luck involved as two of the teams (Syracuse & BYU) we played in the last five years. The Nebraska pennant, unfortunately, had to be ordered.
No one is sure of the exact start date of this tradition, but everyone in the office remembers the pennants hanging for as long as they can remember.
The season opens on Sept. 4 at BYU in Provo.
