Re: The Washington Panthers

Washington rolled the Raiders on the road last night 68-41 to set the stage for another outright M-I conference title next Friday night in the Potter Dome. Better get there early or you won't get in. This is a must see game. In the end, it's too much W&W (Whitelow & Ware) Washington by 10

I've seen nothing in the newspaper to confirm that. Also, what's the status on RDW, is he coming back before the post-season? I don't want to fil...
