Poll — Did the Stanford loss dim your enthusiasm for this season?

A week ago, I sensed about as much excitement for a Husky game as there had been in years — maybe even going back to 2001.

Now? Not so much. A 65-21 loss will do that, especially a defeat that once again exposed some defensive issues that loom ominous heading into the home stretch of the season. UW still has to face what are this week rated statistically as four of the top five offenses in the conference — Oregon (first), Arizona (third), WSU (fourth) and USC (fifth). A trip to Oregon State won’t be easy, either, as the Beavers are averaging 430 yards in conference games only, having apparently found a quarterback in Sean Mannion.

All of which made me think that maybe it is time for a poll to get a gauge of what the fan base is feeling this week. So the question is simple enough — did the Stanford loss dim your enthusiasm for this season, and by how much? And feel free to talk about it further in the comments section.
