Well, the mid-day fog has made the planned pre-game flyover impossible, so now it's just the battle of the bands. The Washington State band travels well and only did their trademark 'WSU' before the Washington band took center stage. After the seniors were honored, it was time for the always impressive flag ceremony.

It looked bad enough as it was happening, but Johnny DuRocher had no idea how bad it was really going to be. The Washington quarterback - who came in the second half of the Huskies' game against Oregon State - was getting his cage rattled repeatedly by Beaver blitz schemes that the Huskies could not defend. The sting of an 18-10 loss was painful enough, but by Sunday DuRocher had a cast on his left arm and a season of eligibility most likely used up.

As Washington center Brad Vanneman made his way to the locker room after losing to Arizona State 44-20 Saturday, he did so with a bit of a hitch in his stride. About half way there, he let out a common one-word expletive. While the Washington players had plenty to say about the defeat, it was pretty clear their private feelings could have been nicely summed up by Vanneman in four letters, none of them suitable for printing here.

It seems almost cliche to have players talking about winning a game for their coach, but when Washington takes on Notre Dame this week that cliche takes on some added significance. When the Fighting Irish roll into Seattle, Tyrone Willingham was supposed to be leading their charge. Now he's the Huskies' head coach and doing everything he can to get his new players ready to take on his old team.
