Both UW goals were late. SPU keeper was great, and SPU created a few chances. UW the better team obviously but more competitive than one might have expected.

Unfortunate to not be able to have a higher number of competitive games.
Previous poster said because it was practically free. Are pac12 programs really hurting that much for money? I mean this year has so few games compared to normal that you’d think they’d have money to play a few competitive games. Must be to let the bench players play.

The entire UW Athletic Dept. is hurting for Money. Cohen better figure out a way to get the football and basketball program back near the top of the P12 or she will be looking for a new job soon. You have to keep the boosters and fans happy.

I think the discussion shows how new some people are to the college game. Look back in history of Seattle U and UW over the last 10 years and you will see they play tune up games prior to league games and Exhibitions or non-conference games. The schedule each year includes games in some form with SPU, Central, and WWU. It has nothing to do with the current Covid situation and budgets.

What is new is the Pac12 did not allow any exhibition/scrimmages this year, and only 2 non-conference games. And Pac12 teams really have not been traveling (beyond a bus ride) for their non-conference games in. All colleges athl depts are hurting financially due to covid and I would commend Jen Cohen for the job she's doing at UW during challenging times.

What about WSU? I’m surprised. I thought all the PAC 12 schools have huge athletic budgets.

Anyone know why WWU isn't playing any non-conference/exhibition games? This is the one team my HS daughter and I would like to see play.

Most athletic departments operate at a very small margin and a lot have annual “losses.”

Consider the fact that most of these revenues, especially in a P5 Conference, are anchored by football revenues. A truncated season with zero attendance probably equals an 8 figure decrease in revenue. It also doesn’t help that the PAC12 Network has been an abject failure. Couple that with the fact that boosters don’t donate when teams aren’t winning and they can’t attend games and most athletic departments are hemorrhaging cash this year.
