    Besides Jimmy isn’t the only 3-0 start to a career? Also, where’s Dobie?

    OP says "Modern Era". I don't care about pre Don James really.

    Yes, I think Jimmy is the only other 3-0 start.

    This one seems like DeBoner, by a mile. Sark beating USC seemed like a fucking miracle and was based on a perfect set of circumstances. I dooged hard but didn't feel like we ever had a shot to win the Pac that year.

    At first glance here, DeBoner, seems ready to Boat Race some fools which is what you need to do to win in College Football in the 2020's.

    For Sark, that USC win was unexpected and still our best win since Miami in 2000.

    USC ended 2008 with a 12-1 record, #2 finish, and dominating Rose Bowl win over Penn St. They beat UW 56-0 the previous year. And the previous week, they beat #8 tOSU in Columbus.

    UW hadn't had a coach since Rick and we were 1 week after ending a 15-game losing streak

    I would have stormed the fucking field in 2009 @Doogles style but was way up in the South Side upper deck that day. I needed more Tim!

    Sark had a lot of lucky breaks against USC that year and the record at the end of the year shows it wasn’t a well coached team.

    Jimmy blew out Arizona #webeatarizona struggled to hold against the Beav getting a gift of a spot from the refs and was saved by Wittinghams poor coaching. 3-0 is 3-0 but that teams weaknesses were evident and exposed the final game and during the 21 season.

    DeBoner looks good so far and there are concerns moving forward but this team looks much more promising and better coached than the other 2.

    I came close to firing Pete after 2015.

    Interesting question, given that most coaching turnover comes from the last one getting canned. DeBoer's success is definitely the exception.

    I give Sark some credit to take Owen and have them competitive, but as others have mentioned, he had a lot of things go his way. So far, DeBoer is just beating that ass rather than leaving anything to chance.

    @Doogles touched on this in the HH Pod, but the TD with :04 left in the first half was the most big dick offensive drive in recent history. We don't score there and MSU comes out of the half with way more hope. Instead it's boot on the throat.

    Beating Colorado at Husky Stadium was big for Rick. Got that team rolling

    I forget about 2014 because it almost feels like 2015 was Pete’s first year.

    People forget that the 0-2 start didn't really mean shit back in those days. Rick was a c-hair (i.e., OT loss) from 7-1 in League and the Rose Bowl in Year 1. He still has maybe the best resume through the first 2 years of any UW corch in the modern era.

    We always lose to Ucla

    Great conference season that went down in flames

    Agree its hard to think of Rose Bowl in year 2

    Owens and James needed 3

    And Arizona St.

    But Rick was 13-3 in the conference the first 2 years. Time has made my memory fade of how competitive the first few years were under Slick.

    Fuck it! I change my mind. @MikeDamone @creepycoug I'm changing my vote to Slick > Pete.

    The UCLA game was the one tho. Coming off a tough win at Arizona and UCLA was horrible that year.

    I was there. For my first Huskieie Gayme.

    Selectively bookending Rick, after 0-2 he went 7-3, 11-1, 8-2, before losing to the U by 500 points and then following it up with losses to Texas and Michigan (12 men on the field).

    Losses to ASU, 1-loss K-State, Oregon, Beav, and of course UCLA twice. ASU of course the only home loss. 26-6 ain’t a bad stretch. It was a fun time to be at UW.
