Last week in this space, I asked if you were more concerned about the season in the wake of the 41-3 loss at LSU.
About 60 percent of you said you were.
So I figured it only fair to ask the question again in the wake of Saturday’s 52-13 win over Portland State. Everybody, I think, realizes the reality of that game and the overall difference in the two levels of football — I was reminded that Portland State in 2008 lost to Washington State 48-9 (that’s the WSU team that went 2-11 with its only other win in one of the more infamous Apple Cups of all time).
Still, maybe despite the fact that a lopsided win was probably to be expected (remember that Portland State had struggled enough on defense that it fired its defensive coordinator on Wednesday) you saw some things you liked. Keith Price looked like his old self, for instance, Bishop Sankey got 103 yards, the special teams made some big plays, the defense dominated the way it should have, and in general the team’s confidence got restored a little bit.
Conversely, maybe you were still troubled by some of the team’s lapses in judgment that led to Steve Sarkisian’s halftime harangue, or something else, despite what was the biggest win (in terms of margin) for the Huskies in 11 years.
Or maybe a big win against a Portland State to you means nothing at all.
Anyway, go ahead and vote:
