Sporting News does it again

I had just glanced at this Sporting News ranking of the Pac-10 schedules for this season and was about to begin a blog wondering how they could really rank UW’s slate second to UCLA’s when I realized that the magazine once known as “The Bible of Sports” had done it again.
Close readers of this blog know that I regard The Sporting News — which like the Yankees, is a shell of its once-great self — as having about as much insight into Pac-10 sports as Lindsay Lohan does about safe driving habits.
And a careful look at this story reveals why TSN may think UCLA’s schedule is more difficult than UW’s — they think it’s Washington State that is ending its season at Hawaii and not the Huskies (not that they probably know UW’s nickname is Huskies).
We all make mistakes, and I make more than my share. But TSN seems to consistently make as many errors — be it factual or just having no clue — when it comes to all things Pac-10 as Wally Walker running the Sonics.
So read it at your own peril.
On the topic at hand, hard to believe anyone would really think UCLA’s non-conference slate of BYU, at Utah and Notre Dame — rugged as that may seem in comparison to a lot of other schools —- is tougher than Washington’s four-game grouping of at Syracuse, Boise State, Ohio State and at Hawaii.
