A night road game means some tough deadlines, and now some long and early hours to get back home.
So there’s not a lot of time tonight to analyze this one. Not that it needs a lot of analysis — LSU is simply a lot better than UW is right now. I know there’s a lot of frustration out there about that, and some questioning whether there ought to be that big of a gap in the fourth year for a coach. Because of some of UW’s issues on the lines, though, this looked like a bad matchup from the start, and turned out worse than a lot of us thought. And LSU didn’t even play a real efficient game with some of its penalties and dropped passes and a few other mistakes.
A tough one, no doubt about. And now UW comes home to what looks like the one gimme on its schedule — Portland State at CenturyLink Saturday. UW has to get a nice confidence-building there to launch itself into Pac-12 play.
For now, though, the press box is closing up so I’ll pass along a few links:

All for now.
