Washington football: How will Chris Petersen perform in his first season?

Otto Greule Jr

For more on Huskies football, head on over to UW Dawg Pound.

Chris Petersen is the new face of Washington Huskies football. He'll have a lot of issues to deal with this upcoming season, most notably finding a new quarterback and running back to keep this offense humming. With Keith Price and Bishop Sankey gone, the new faces to lead Washington football remains a bit of a mystery. Can Petersen engineer a big turnaround?

Evidence seems to point to some struggles. Dan Hawkins and Dirk Koetter both made transitions to big major college programs, but weren't able to convert that into consistent success at Colorado or Arizona State. Petersen does seem to be moving into a more favorable situation at Washington. Steve Sarkisian has built the program back up and has the Huskies on the cusp of competing for Pac-12 North titles.

We asked some of our Twitter followers how they think Petersen will perform in his first season at Washington and received some differing answers.
