Pregame Guesses: UCLA and Washington State

It's that time of the week again.

I've got the results from Fresno State on a Fan Post here.

I've got to be honest with you -- we're not much better at guessing than the team is at winning. I don't think anyone has gotten three points in a given week yet.

Now, let's turn our attention to the Washington State Cougars.

How bad are the Cougars? Let's put it this way: They're double-digit dogs to a team that's been blown out by BYU and Arizona, got beat pretty good by Fresno State and has dropped three in a row.

That's how bad the Cougars are at the moment.

Washington State sucking is actually sort of nostalgic for us old timers. I can recall a time when Washington State knew their place as one of the conference doormats. That was back when we used to play in New Year's Day bowl games and actually win them. This was back when Rick Neuheisel was throwing passes and Karl Dorrell was catching them.

I can almost picture Neuheisel sitting his his frat house, knocking back some Henry Weinhard's Private Reserve or MIckey's Big Mouth (no doubt delivered by the Duck Blind up on Montana), watching MTV (note to the young folks, MTV used to play music videos -- weird, huh?) , checking out Johnny Cougar and going, "Heh, heh ... I wonder if he's rooting for the Cougars?" ... then cracking up as he and his bros spill beer and pretzels all over a sofa they stole from Dykstra Hall.


I'm just going to say it: UCLA needs this win. If they lose, well ... it's basketball season. So I'm going to throw optimistic caution to the wind with this week's questions:

1 - How many points will UCLA lead by at halftime?

2 - How many touchdowns will UCLA score on offense in the game?

3 - What will the exact combined attendance be at the Rose Bowl, Dodgers Stadium (where the Cubs will be playing the Dodgers) and the Coliseum (where USC faces Oregon)?

Okay ... that last one was a joke.

3 - Seriously, which game will have the higher attendance, the UCLA-Washington State game at the Rose Bowl or the Dodgers-Cubs game at Dodgers Stadium? (Answer Bruins or Dodgers)
