"You really can’t get entertainment this good anywhere else. It’s like living in a trailer park that includes a bar and a strip club." - StLouisDawg (May 2019)

"I like this place. You guys are like a slightly angrier version of with more PTSD." - Mitch_Cumsteen (Texas fan from

"This place is what people make it. We have blood feuds going back years. We have some good discussion. We have malarkey... People forget that the business model is based on Lord of the Flies... Show weakness and you're done." - Race Bannon

Message boards full of debauchery and child-like wonder. Founded by Derek Johnson and members of the Husky Half Brain Revolution.
First off, welcome to our message boards. The first thing you'll notice is that you're not in Kansas anymore. In this era of heavy-handed censorship, we've created a place where people can relax and say what's on their mind. (Sometimes using language which could peel paint. It's like being in the back room of The Sopranos -- or a saloon in Deadwood).

We've become a magnet for rascals, scoundrels, and the dispossessed. Our best posters are clever and eccentric. Many of them have been banned from every other football message board on the west coast.

We have eleven forums (and their respective mottos):

Husky Football: "Yap About Husky Football"
The Enumclaw Truck Stop Recruiting Board "Your one-stop shop for recruiting news and illegal fireworks!"
Duck Refuge "A sanctuary for eDuck posters longing to breathe free"
College Football Forum: "Sam Darnold lives for message boards like this"
Yellow Snow's Record Shoppe: "Music, books, watches, cigars and the finer things in life"
Tug Tavern: "If the boys wanna fight, you'd better let 'em"
Payton's Place: "Hot NBA talk mixed with listless Husky Basketball talk"
NFL Board: "One word: GRONK!"
Mariners Baby! - and Other Sports: "Hot Mariner talk, Golf, soccer and other sports"
Classics: The Pantheon of great posts in the history of Hardcore Husky"
Swaye's Wigwam: Boobs, guns and breakdowns of articles from The Athletic (Secret board that requires $129 annual donation)

My best advice to you is to lurk awhile and get acclimated before posting. Now, why would I say that? Good question.

If I had a nickel for every naïve soul that wandered onto our boards looking for Pollyanna discussions about the Dawgs, or wanting to find the coldest beer near Husky Stadium, I wouldn't have to solicit donations. (You can help out by donating here)

Yes, things can get ugly for newcomers really quick. Like a tourist going for a quick swim in a South American river, only to be devoured by piranhas. Hardcore Husky is a combination of Lord of the Flies and Full Metal Jacket.

Or let's look at a post made by the irreverent poster AllPurpleAllGold, aka @TheKobeStopper.

"The thing is we don't need new posters. We make better posters. One poster here is worth a hundred on

"That's because is a place for random people to hang out and talk Husky football. This is a place to hang out with your friends. And new friends are always welcome. But the sucky ones will get weeded out."

That's why if you have some game and can endure the initial hazing, you'll have a blast here.

Case in point, there is a poster from Utah named 89Ute. Here he is reppin' our site in a recent 10k run. (75k)


He also described why he hangs out every day on Hardcore Husky:

"For me, there is a hell of a lot of Pac-12 talk here that I love. Case in point, the post today about Tayler Katoa's injury. Anything that happens to another Pac-12 school never makes it to the Utah bubble, here, you guys are all over it.

"For a non-mandatory pay site, the recruiting info blows me away. Shout out to The Season is Over Podcast gentlemen. I'm envious of what these guys do for your team. I find benefits because it's Pac-12 relevant and I'm learning to analyze football like a big boy Pac-12 fan.

"The football talk here is top notch and all the bullshit in between is pretty fucking fun. You can't talk football 24/7. I enjoy fucking around until the next football related story/event drops. That's really what we're doing here.

"Don't try to mainstream this place or try to win over the respect of the athletic department. Those motherfuckers come and go, year in and year out, you don't. Fuck em!

"HardcoreHusky's perceived weakness is it's very strength. Embrace it. There is a hell of a lot of activity here, at least from my perspective.

"I have to act professionally 8-10 hours a day and it's fucking stifling. I spend all day being neutral and non-offensive so I can pay the bills. I love this outlet.

"At work, social gatherings, semi-professional parties, I go hang with the outcast smokers even though I'm not a smoker. That's where the real shit is happening, that's what this place is.

"Every day something here makes me laff. The last place I want to be is some politically correct, soft pussy bullshit-everyone-gets-trophy message bored.

"Keep this bitch going and keep the cunts outta here."

Another Pac-12 interloper, Bearswiin, explained the value he derives from Hardcore Husky:

"This is a place for true fans, no matter what colors they wear. You want to play footsie with rah-rah lemmings from UW, Dawgman is the place for you. But here, these are the people who dared to expect more from UW than the shit they got with Ty and Sark, and were banned from Dawgman for it. These guys aren't afraid to question or criticize their team or school for what it does wrong, in addition to cheering for what their team and school does right.

"I respect these people. I've known and bantered with many of them for a dozen years on several boards, some of which don't exist anymore. It would also seem that they respect me, because they recognize that I, too, am a true fan, even if I root for another team. And I'm not the only outsider here; there are several other non-Huskies here who enjoy and "get" this liberating environment. I dare not speak for them, for they have their own voices, but for mine own, I'll say as nicely as possible: go fuck yourself."

Now then, here are the Hardcore Husky Rules. We don't have many of them, but even Hardcore Husky has some standards.

1. No calls for genocide, etc.
2. No posting of pornographic images or implied sex acts (Playboy-style nudity is allowed in Swaye's Wigwam [Premium])
3. No posting of people's personal Facebook photos and private information. That's flat-out creepy.
4. No posting of premium content from other sites
5. No pretending to be someone you're not (the head coach accounts I've let slide because everyone knows Sonny Dykes Justin Wilcox isn't really posting here while Cal is playing its games.)
