By-The-Numbers: UCLA

As painful an exercise as this has become, By-The-Numbers has an almost exorcising feel to it. Get the digits out of your system, Husky fans! Don't worry about the fact that opponents are scoring 7 points every 12 plays. Don't think about the fact that the 2008 Washington Huskies are just centimeters away from their worst start in school history: By-The-Numbers is cheaper than therapy.
