Assessing the damage on the morning after Utah

COUGARS

FROM SALT LAKE CITY — I'm boarding a couple flights later today and will arrive in Spokane later this afternoon, then make the drive to Pullman, then attend what all of a sudden looks like it should be a pretty interesting practice. Read on for links from yesterday's proceedings.


We will start with our newspaper coverage, which, as usual, includes our game story, a notebook, our keys to the game and our scoring summary. On the blog, we had video of the bizarre postgame happenings, from Mike Leach's comments, to those of the offensive line, and those of the defensive line. I've heard a lot of strong opinions, on both sides, of Leach's decision to send both lines out to be interviewed. Shows how divisive a season like this can get. … Bud Withers says Leach needs to look at himself, too, and has an additional story and a 2-minute drill. … Howie Stalwick has this story in the Kitsap Sun. … From Utah: The Utes wanted a shutout, but were pleased that they still “killed” WSU. Some notes from the Utah side, where Reggie Dunn set an NCAA record and the Utes healed themselves. Utah is on a modest winning streak now.

In other Pac-12 action …

Stanford 48, Colorado 0 — The result was expected, but the big news here is the Cardinal using Kevin Hogan as its primary quarterback. Colorado is still terrible.

Oregon 62, USC 51 — The Ducks set a whole bunch of records as they piled up 730 yards. USC just didn't have an answer, even as Matt Barkley put up some big numbers of his own.

UCLA 66, Arizona 10 — A shockingly lopsided win for the Bruins, and a sobering fall back to reality for Arizona.

Oregon State 36, Arizona State 26 — The Beavers used a big second half to win this one. Big plays cost the Sun Devils.

Time to fly. We'll be back tonight after practice.
