After losing the Apple Cup in double overtime and staring a loss to California right in the eye to finish out a winless campaign, the real question becomes what will the 2009 Washington Huskies look like? With a top-25 recruiting class in 2008, there are still quite a few players that have yet to make their mark.

Well, it's finally come - the Awful Cup. I mean, the Apple Cup. Both Washington and Washington State has combined to build up the kind of notoriety that has ESPN bringing two writers to cover the AC. But unfortunately everyone is interested for all the wrong reasons. Together, the Huskies and Cougars have been shut out of the Pac-10 regular season - until Saturday. Both deserve to lose.

With Washington's loss to UCLA and the Cougars suffering their third shut out of the season to ASU, the number-one and two worst teams in America will square off Saturday afternoon in Pullman for the state championship of college football. On the line will be the title of "Worst Team in College Football". Lose the game and you've rightly earned the distinction of being the bottom of the bottom.

SEATTLE - Well, here's everyone's red-letter game. Like Nick Saban returning to Baton Rouge, it's Rick Neuheisel's time to head back to Husky Stadium and face the music against a Washington program that is a shell of their former selves. Will he be cheered? Will he be booed? Will he have more former players on UCLA's side than on UW's side?

SEATTLE - As we've done with previous segments, it was time to bring in another big gun to help with this week's Dawgman Radio. In from Chicago, noted UW columnist and blogger John Berkowitz was on hand to see the Huskies get taken out by Arizona State 39-19. He spoke with Scott Eklund, Kim Grinolds and Chris Fetters after the game about what he saw, as well as the state of the UW program.

Well, at 0-8 and no end in sight, the University of Willingham Huskies trudge on. Saturday they host Arizona State (2-6, 1-4), another team in a freefall, yet the Sun Devils are favored by at least two touchdowns. And playing against a team that's been outscored by over 100 points their last three games, why not?
