Neither team is what you would call “good.” But on Saturday, it was very clear that the Washington Huskies were flat-out better than the Washington State Cougars.
That’s not the only thing we learned while watching the Apple Cup, however. Each team presented us with information about who they truly are in Washington’s 30-0 victory over their in-state rival. We break down those two BIG things right now.
1. The Cougars possess the most fragile QB corps in history.
You may remember a short time ago when I made a ridiculous prediction in our Super Megapost regarding the status of the Washington State quarterbacks for Saturday’s game. Here’s a direct quote from that article:
Holy crapola, Ron Kittle is on Facebook! If you collected baseball cards as a kid like I did, you may very well know that Ron Kittle is a former Major League Baseball player who, in his heyday, was regarded as a power hitter with an inability to hit for average. Baseball Reference compares Kittle favorably with the Steve Balbonis of our world, which is no compliment.
Anyways, long story short, Ron Kittle is our friend on Facebook, and he’s not the only semi-famous person we’ve made an acquaintance with recently. We’ve also hooked it up with Mariner broadcaster Dave Sims (a true American hero); ESPN college basketball analyst Doug Gottlieb; current Major Leaguers Jack Cust, Corey Patterson, Chad Billingsley, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, and others; Seattle’s own Felix Hernandez; quarterback Matt Leinart; journalists Peter Gammons and Jeff Pearlman; and even Sportscenter anchor and former KIRO TV sportscaster Linda Cohn.
