SPORTS TALK 101 continues to celebrate the Apple Cup
University of Washington Huskies (5-6 overall, 3-4 PAC 10)
After being picked by many sportswriters around the country to win the PAC 10 this season, the Huskies have failed
to live up to their lofty expectations. In fact, a certain sportswriter here at this school also picked them as PAC 10
champs. The season has been filled with injuries to key players, but as any coach will tell you that is football and
the great teams adjust and overcome. What seems to have plagued the Huskies the most this season is their ten-
dency to play down to the level of their competition. This point was glaringly apparent in losses to Arizona and
Nevada. Nonetheless, the Huskies have shown tremendous promise of what might have been in wins over Oregon
and Oregon State. Overall, inconsistent play at the one position that matters most, the Quarterback position, has
been the Achilles heel of the dogs and as Cody Picket goes so goes the dogs. Here is a brief synopsis of the Hus-
kies’ season. (PAC 10 Games in Bold)
Opponent Result Record (Wins-Losses)
At Ohio State 28-9 Loss 0-1 Tough opener vs. National Champs.
Indiana 38-13 Win 1-1 Not so sure UW could beat their hoop team.
Idaho 45-14 Win 2-1 Idaho has won 4 games the past 3 seasons.
Stanford 28-17 Win 3-1 At 3-1 the year had so much promise.
At UCLA 46-16 Loss 3-2 Huskies led 16-7 at halftime.
Nevada 28-17 Loss 3-3 OUCH! Enough said.
At Oregon State 38-17 Win 4-3 1st step of defending NW Champ. complete.
USC 43-23 Loss 4-4 For the record, USC is good.
Oregon 42-10 Win 5-4 So much for Neuheisel wearing a UO cap.
At Arizona 27-22 Loss 5-5 See Nevada comment above.
At California 54-7 Loss 5-6 Don’t feel too bad, Cal beat USC too.
Washington State ???????
The Washington State University (9-2 overall, 6-1 PAC 10)
Well, the Cougs weren’t picked by anyone to repeat as conference champions this year. In fact, the west coast me-
dia picked them 7th out of 10 teams. (I personally picked them 3rd) How have they done to this point? Let’s see,
they are one win from capturing their second PAC 10 title in as many years. That is correct, if they win out they
will at worst share the conference championship with USC. Aside from an overtime loss at Notre Dame early in the
year and a lackluster performance vs. USC, the Cougs have exceeded all expectations and given football fans from
the state of Washington something to cheer for. After losing their All-American quarterback, defensive tackle, and
cornerback to the draft and graduation, the Cougs have reloaded in a big way. The cornerstone of this team has
been the defense, which leads the PAC 10 in nearly every statistical category. An offense that is efficient, but not
spectacular has done just enough to not lose games for the Cougs this year. Not many people would have believed
that the Cougs would be ranked in the top 8 in the country heading into this year’s Apple Cup.
Opponent Result Record (Wins-Losses)
Idaho 25-0 Win 1-0 Playing in Seahawks Stadium is always nice
At Notre Dame 29-26 Loss 1-1 How did they lose to Notre Dame again?
At Colorado 47-26 Win 2-1 So much for the powerful Big 12 North.
New Mexico 23-13 Win 3-1 The Lobos were a worthy adversary.
At Oregon 55-16 Win 4-1 How did these guys beat Michigan?
Arizona 30-7 Win 5-1 A win on homecoming! Hella Cool!
At Stanford 24-14 Win 6-1 Yawn.
Oregon State 36-30 Win 7-1 Coolest mascot in the PAC 10. Go Beavers!
At USC 43-16 Loss 7-2 Did I mention these guys were good?
UCLA 31-13 Win 8-2 What is a Bruin anyway?
Arizona State 34-19 Win 9-2 One win away from 3rd 10 win season.
At Washington ??????
