The running back position has plenty of bodies, but will anyone step up to take the lead in the race to see who gets a bulk of the carries in 2009? Head coach Steve Sarkisian and his staff get their first real look at what they have to work with starting next Tuesday, but here's a quick look at the halfback and fullback positions and which players to keep an eye on...

Outside of Yakima, Wash. - In this segment of DawgmanRadio - Kim Grinolds, Jon Martone and Chris Fetters put together a little roundtable chat on what they saw Saturday at the 101st Apple Cup, what went wrong for the Washington Huskies, and who just might be the right guy to fix it in order to get prospects like Deandre Coleman back in the boat.

Many expected the Huskies to beat Washington State on the road with ease this year, but as hapless as both teams have been this season, the Huskies proved to be more inept...read the thoughts of the players after a tough 16-13 loss as they try to explain their thoughts as they head into the bye week before focusing on their final opponent this season -- the California Golden Bears...
PULLMAN, Wash. - In a game featuring teams no one wanted to watch, Washington and Washington State made the 101st Apple Cup one for the ages, defying every reasonable convention. Nico Grasu's 37-yard field goal in the second overtime propelled the Cougars to a fitting 16-13 triumph at Martin Stadium Saturday.
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.

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?
