Road Dawgs: Nebraska-Bound
A smooth three-hour flight brought the Washington football program from Seattle to Lincoln, Neb., a nice start to the first road trip of the season. Before departing UW, the Huskies held a light practice (just shorts & helmets) to re-emphasize the game plan against the Cornhuskers.
Travel at UW is a pain-free operation. Student-athletes, coaches and administrators board four buses and cruise over to Sea-Tac, right on the tarmac. Then it's wheels up on the charter, which took the traveling party direct to Lincoln. Special shoutout to Assistant Athletic Director of Football Operations Dennis Slutak for coordinating all the travel logistics.
On the flight, most of the student-athletes either sleep or listen to music/watch movies. Cool to see the voice of the Huskies, Bob Rondeau, digest a wealth of information leading up to the game, scanning through Nebraska clips, media guides, etc.
Once in Nebraska, the group split - players to their hotel and donors/administrators to another. The Huskies will meet downstairs later for a snack, but the importance is for them to rest.
Now that we're in the Cornhusker State, we'll pass on a few links related to the Huskies from behind enemy lines.
