Brand new week, same old story. Might as well etch 1-12 at the top of the 2008 football tombstone, because nothing is going to stop it now. Not Arizona, not ASU, not UW, not Hawaii. FUN.
Seriously, one question - why not roll with J.T. the entire second half? What was/is the point of playing Lopina? Ok, Lopina is a junior, and that's fine. And he can scramble a little bit. Great. But what has he done to earn the PT at this juncture? What has he done on the field, other than not get us into the end zone? Why burn the redshirt on the kid QB if you are just going to roll him out for one first-half series in a game that got out of control in a hurry? Why stick with Lopina well into the 4th quarter? When it was 51-0 you still played Lopina? REALLY? Wasn't 31-0 at the half enough to decide that this thing just isn't working out? What about building for the future, starting with next season and getting your young QB some real playing time? What are you waiting for? What is the POINT to any of this???
Maybe some day it will lead to days like this:
I have wanted to hold off on saying this, and have tried to be the eternal optimist....but there is no denying it any longer. This might not be just the worst WSU team in our lifetimes - it is, without question - but this is the worst Pac-10 team of all time.
Enjoy your Saturday night.
