This is a little debate that we had in the office. If you combined the Washington Huskies and the Washington State Cougars into one football team how many games would they win in the Pac-10 and how many Cougars would start versus how many Huskies would start.

Here is the position-by-position breakdown. I have put in bold who I would start.

OFFENSE (Huskies – Cougars)
QB: Isaiah Stanback or Alex Brink
RB: Louis Rankin or Jerome Harrison
FB: Not applicable
WR: Sonny Shackelford or Jason Hill
WR: Craig Chambers or Michael Bumpus
LT: Robin Meadow or Bobby Byrd
LG: Clay Walker or Sean O’Connor
C: Brad Vanneman or Nick Mihlhauser
RG: Tusi Sa’au or Norvell Holmes
RT: Joe Toledo or Charles Harris
TE: Robert Lewis or Troy Bienemann
P: Sean Douglas (41.9) or Kyle Basler (41.1)
PK: Evan Knudson or Loren Langley

DEFENSE (Huskies – Cougars)
DE: Donny Mateaki or Mkristo Bruce
DT: Manase Hopoi or Aaron Johnson
DT: Wilson Afoa or Ropati Pitoitua
DE: Greyson Gunheim or Adam Braidwood
OLB: Scott White or Scott Davis
MLB: Joe Lobendahn or Will Derting
OLB: Even Benjamin or Steve Dildine
CB: Matt Fontaine or Wally Dada
CB: Roy Lewis or Alex Teems
SS: CJ Wallace or Eric Frampton
FS: Dashon Goldsten or Husain Abdullah

Head Coach: Tyrone Willingham or Bill Doba

My breakdown finishes with 17 Cougars and 6 Huskies with one push at punter.

The next question is how many game would this team win?

The entire Husky team including 3rd string would start over any stupid ass Coug anytime anywhere, throughout history, no question.

NONE of the Husky LB's? I've seen both the Coug and Dawg LB's in person and on TV and yer nutz. Only Derting is correct there. Also, you want Knudsen, Douglas and Chambers. Bumpus is money as a PR, but he rarely seems to get open on the field as a WR.

Good to see we would start Toledo who is always injured so he never starts for his own team. Same goes with Fontain who I saw was benched for the another CB. It is sad to say but this would still only be a .500 team probably

Sorry but this topic is totally boring . Why would I want to pick both Huskies and Cougars from this year's team? I think a better topic would be pick the all time Cougar and Husky football team, then you will be able to name off some real talent.

To answer your question about how many wins this so called team would win the answer is zero. (The dawgs simply put have no talent and the cougs, well, they'd be "cougin' it" !!!!!!!!

What a bunch of negative dudes you have on this site Locke---I think you have to go with Basler though, he was a MVP of the Holiday Bowl vs. Vince Young and Texas two years ago.
