Home-and-Home: Spring-game attendance, media policies and practice standouts
Christian and Tyson get together for their regular assessment of Washington and Oregon, post-spring.
Home-and-Home is a monthly conversation between Christian Caple of On Montlake and Tyson Alger of The I-5 Corridor. With more than two decades of combined experience covering football in the Northwest, join On Montlake and The I-5 Corridor each month for their unique views on the Ducks, Huskies and Pac-12 football.
ALGER: OK, Christian, I’ll concede that Seattle has quite a bit going for it right now.
The Kraken are the hottest team in the NHL.
The Sounders are the best team in the MLS’ Western Conference.
The Mariners didn’t mess up their City Connect jerseys — different story on the pants — and On Montlake is holding steady on the list of Substack’s top-10 sports bread-winners.
But why can’t Washington get a few people to its spring game? I get that it’s more of an event for Oregon and that’s why UO estimated 45,000 were in attendance Saturday in Eugene. And I know a lot of the photos floating around from Washington’s game don’t take into account the crowd below the press box.
But Washington should be better than being the game used as the counterexample to illustrate how strong Deion’s showing was in Boulder, right?
