There isn’t a simple descriptor for the Huskies’ offense. It’s many things, by design: It’s part spread, part pistol, part trickery — and, for many Husky fans the past two seasons, part maddening. Ultimately, the goal is to be a balanced offense.

PGA: PGA Championship - Second Round(Reuters) - Rory McIlroy has set his sights on finishing a so-so season on a strong note as he prepares this week for The Barclays, the first of four FedExCup events that conclude the 2015-16 U.S. PGA Tour. "I'm trying to judge my year on wins," McIlroy told reporters on Wednesday at Bethpage Black in Farmingdale, New York. Obviously the two missed cuts at the majors were very disappointing, especially the way I missed the cuts." The Northern Irishman missed the cut by two strokes at the U.S. Open in June and by just one shot at the PGA Championship last month.
