Sunday a.m. notes

So I doubt few of you really want to look back at that one. But just in case, here’s a link to all of our coverage.
In other newws:
— The LA Times also notes that the fans, the few that bothered to show up, anyway, went easy on Rick Neuheisel.
— Here are lots of notes from the LA Daily News.
— Lots of good links from around the Pac-10 from the Oregonian’s Ken Goe, leading off with some commentary on OSU’s improbable run to being just two games away from the Rose Bowl.
— ESPN’s Ted Miller says the Apple Cup will be the worst rivalry showdown in BCS Conference history — so it has that going for it.
— Making the game even more appetizing? The Cougars might have lost another QB yesterday as Kevin Lopina left with a concussion and didn’t return.
— The stats make clear just how bad a game this will be. The Huskies and Cougars rank 116th and 118th in the nation in scoring defense, respectively, and 117th and 118th in scoring offense. So hey, who says these two teams aren’t consistent? I’d argue consistency’s been the problem. I think Husky fans would really go for some inconsistency right about now.
— Especially on night games, when I’m usually typing the entire second half, I sometimes lose track of some late-game trends. And I really didn’t realize just how bad the offense was in the second half last night until finally getting a chance to look over the stats. UW had six possessions in the second half — none laster longer than four plays or 22 yards. Three resulted in minus-yards, one in one yard. For the second half, UW ran 20 plays, gaining 39 yards. The longest gain was seven yards. That’s against a UCLA defense that while probably better than some of its numbers, had been allowing 368 yards per game.
— In the ”my how times have changed” department, today is the 12th anniversary of the afternoon when Corey Dillon rushed for an NCAA-record 222 yards in one quarter against San Jose State. UW’s leading rusher this year, Terrance Dailey, has 246 for the season. I’m reminded that Louis Rankin, criticized as he was, had more yards than that against Stanford last year (255).
All for now.
