Belated picks

Even though UW’s season is over, I meant to continue giving my picks here for Pac-10 games and simply forgot. Maybe something in all that turkey.
Or maybe the fact I went 1-4 last week had something to do with it, as well, though I almost had a direct hit on the one game I got right — I called OSU to beat Stanford 31-7 and the score was 30-7.
Watching the Notre Dame-USC game, however, brings lots of Husky-related thoughts as you remember just how close Washington was to winning that game. There’a also the eternal Willingham-Weis debate that could get a little ammo in the pro-Tyrone camp should it turn out that Willingham was able to come closer to winning at USC this year than was Weis.
Watching Arizona State beat Arizona brings the realization of just what a strange Pac-10 season this has been. Just when a team seemed hot, like Arizona, it turned cold. And just when a team seemed on the brink of complete collapse, like Arizona State, it produced an improbable win.
It’s completely fitting, then, that five Pac-10 teams are probably going to finish the conference year 4-5.
