Sunday night news and notes

Looking back at Saturday, passing along the update on James Rodgers, and a little more. …
— First off, OSU coach Mike Riley announced tonight that OSU’s standout receiver Rodgers is out for Saturday’s game at UW after injuring his knee yesterday against Arizona. Intriguingly, the story says OSU has already clarified that if Rodgers is out for the year he could likely redshirt this season and come back next season for one more year when his broter, Jacquizz, would also be a senior.
As for how this impacts this week’s game, OSU has a dangerous passing attack even without Rodgers. But Rodgers has been one of the best WRs in the Pac-10 the last three years with 177 catches in his career, and 16 this season.
— Here’s my Monday follow story on the loss to ASU Saturday night, including some interesting quotes from some of UW’s defenders about what happened.
Specifically, Nate Williams said that:

“We played really well late in the game, but I think a lot of the guys came out a little overanxious and were just trying to do too much, and that’s really been a problem for us all year. So we just have to execute and everything will be all right for us.”

And Cort Dennison:

“I think we were all trying to do our own thing and got caught up in the moment. Give them a lot of credit — they executed and ran some plays that were good plays to run against our defensive calls. But I think a lot of us did our own things at times and that killed us.”

— Here’s UW’s team statistical page from NCAA.org. As you can see, UW ranks sixth or lower in every statistical category among Pac-10 teams other than sacks allowed, in which they are fourth. And the season is starting to get to a point where the schedules are beginning to even out and the stats a little more relevant.
— I’ll be on the Husky Roundtable Monday morning at 8:20 a.m. on KJR-AM with Mitch Levy and former Huskies Hugh Millen and Chuck Nelson.
All for now.
