Uh oh. Nothing against talented senior Brody McKnight, but when a Canadian kicker is your team's featured player, well, that doesn't usually bode well.
According to images posted here and here, McKnight is front and center on this year's 2011 schedule poster, which should be up in Worden's front window — and every other local business — sometime soon.
McKnight's appearance may foretell a tough season at Washington-Grizzly Stadium. After last year's surprising absence from the playoffs — the first time that's happened in 18 seasons — pundits are calling for another championship-less campaign. Every major poll predicts the Griz will finish behind both Eastern Washington and Montana State in the Big Sky Conference.
But, of course, the players may have something to say about that. Including the kicker.
