Road to 5-0 gets easier?

In case you missed this looks like the worst team in the Pac-10 is losing 4 key players (for the whole season) possibily further clearing up our road to Oregon with a record of 5-0:

SEATTLE -- Four Washington players are academically ineligible for the upcoming season, including running back J.R. Hasty and wide receiver Chancellor Young, coach Tyrone Willingham said Thursday at the Pac-10 Conference media day in Los Angeles.

Hasty, Young, wide receiver Charles Smith and left tackle Nathan Flowers are ineligible for the 2006 season, the coach said.

Hasty was the star of Willingham's first recruiting class at Washington. The son of former NFL defensive back James Hasty was a star at Bellevue High School where he rushed for 92 career touchdowns, including 50 in his senior season.
Then again we are probably not in the positon to run a lot of smack considering we needed this TD from MJD to eek out a win over Blue-Gray Sky's favorite coach:

Also we have a bye the week before we go up to Seattle. So really there will be no excuses for a meltdown and a loss against the Dogs. Think about it. If UCLA loses to Washington on the road what are we going to do in South Bend?

Anyways Dorrell knows very welll he still has a lot to prove. He should be starting this upcoming seaon with a record of 5-0 and Washington will be one of those must win games for Dorrell. Looks like the task just got a real easier for Dorrell. So there should be no excuses if the Bruins screw up in Seattle.
