I wanted to make this a stand alone post. One of the Bruins I felt most happy for yesterday was none other than Norm Chow. It was fun to see the Bruin offense roll up 455 yards of total offense with a combination of red shirt freshman QB and a much maligned senior QB behind an offense line that was completely rebuilt from scratch. They did that to a Washington team supposedly led by superstar proteges from Pom Pom Carroll's program. Guess Sarkasian and Holt didn't look the geniusies they were when they had to go up against Bruins without having a 2 deep roster of 4/5 star All Americans all over the lineup.
Of course there has been a lot of glowing reviews of Sarkasian after they pulled of that "upset" against Southern Cal playing with its backup QB. Perhaps the guy will turn out to be a solid coach. We will find out the answer in next 2-3 years eventually (just like we will get the answers re. Lane Kiffin).
However, I think here is a question all Washington fans and Pac-10 observers needs to keep in mind. I asked John Berkowitz, our SBN colleague who runs the solid UW Dawg Pound blog during the BN podcast thread last week how many games he thinks Huskies would have won last year if Locker didn't go down. His answer was "3-4."
It's a number people who love keeping an eye on Pac-10, might want to make a note of for rest of the season.
Good luck to Sarkasian and the Huskies rest of the year.
