Husky Football Blog

The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

October 7, 2007 at 8:40 AM

What a crazy weekend

Turning on the computer again and heartening to see the activity on the blog even in a weekend when the Huskies weren’t playing. Really cool.
As for the weekend in the Pac-10, it merely proved that none of us has a real clue what’s going to happen each Saturday. I certainly didn’t, missing badly on each of my picks (I did get ASU beating WSU but not in a close game decided at the buzzer).
Stanford’s win does take UW off the hook, in a way. Washington’s 1985 loss to Oregon State as a 37-point favorite has been regarded as the biggest upset (in terms of point spread) in Pac-10 history, and one of the largest in all of college football.
But that’s pushed down the list now by a game that suddenly also puts a little different light on what happened last week in Seattle, as well. The Trojans really don’t look as good as everyone has thought, especially with all the injuries they’ve had the last few weeks.
Arizona State definitely looked beatable in Pullman Saturday.
But the Sun Devils are also simply finding ways to win, which was theme in the ASU locker room afterward — that this is a much more confident team under Dennis Erickson than it was a year ago under Dirk Koetter.
As for the question on the call in the end zone on WSU’s Brandon Gibson that was called no good, the officials apparently ruled he didn’t have control of the ball. I think Cougar coaches are still upset about that one. BTW, it was the same crew that did the UW-USC game in Seattle last week, so it was to be expected there would be a few flags thrown around and a few calls that everyone wouldn’t like.
I’ll try to be back with my weekly Pac-10 rankings — so where to put USC, anyway? — later today.
