Could next week be worse?

The mood afterward was about as funereal as you might have expected.
Some players called this the worst loss of their careers, and Tyrone Willingham admitted afterward that he would have to look at what he’s doing since “obviously, that was not good football.”
All the goals for this team are now lost, leaving only playing for pride next week in the Apple Cup.
The question will be who takes the snaps at QB.
Johnny DuRocher suffered a concussion when hit on the play in which he threw the interception that was returned for a touchdown and was taken to the hospital afterward.
Carl Bonnell tried to play after being removed when he suffered a thigh bruise but he was obviously laboring.
Even walk-on Felix Sweetman was ailing, suffering a shoulder stinger while playing on special teams early in the game.
UW offensive coordinator Tim Lappano said it’s possible that Bonnell won’t be able to play next week, saying “Carl’s really beat up” which would leave it to DuRocher and Sweetman, provided they are able.
Two injured starters and a walk-on doesn’t sound like any way to try to snap a six-game losing streak in Pullman.
Who could have envisioned all of this when this team was 4-1?
There were two other injuries as DTs Donny Mateaki (calf) and Wilson Afoa (knee) also limped off the field.
The three points, by the way, was the first time UW has been held without a touchdown in a home game since the 1983 Apple Cup.
