    Absolutely correct. Thanks for sharing.
    One thing I have learned in a long life: that all our science, measured against reality, is primitive and childlike -- and yet it is the most precious thing we have.

    --Albert Einstein

    The fact that life evolved out of nearly nothing, some 10 billion years after the universe evolved out of literally nothing, is a fact so staggering that I would be mad to attempt words to do it justice.

    Wtf are the talking about? A lot of nastiness toward Troy Williams there. I'm not convinced it's deserved. They're reading too much into his comments.

    That may be the most pathetic board I've ever read through. Holy cow.

    It was like sitting in a group of dumb, illiterate 13 year olds.

    If we can knock Browning down a peg or two, we win. His growth is the biggest reason behind UW's surge this year.

    The scary thing is elite QBs usually thrive against our defense after multiple looks. Think about guys like John Beck and Andy Dalton from the MWC, and Matt Leinart and Marcus Mariota in the Pac-12. Average at best the first time around, positively lethal the 2nd or 3rd time around. Jared Goff never got two looks at Utah. Kevin Hogan would've probably eaten us up last year (would've been his 3rd look -- Dalton's 3rd game was 2009, when TCU hung up 55 against us). Fafaul appears to be the exception, but 70 attempts will do that. He also averaged only 6.6 YPA, which is mediocre.

    UW is tempting the Oliver Woofing Theorem right now.

    So I said to David Eckstein, "You promised me, Eckstein, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. But I noticed that during the most trying periods of my life, there have only been one set of prints in the sand. Why, when I have needed you most, have you not been there for me?" David Eckstein replied, "Because my little legs had gotten tired, and you were carrying me." And I looked down and saw that I was still carrying David Eckstein.

    For the love of all things holy, I'm rooting for Utah on saturday. Please win by a wide margin and intercept Browning 2+ times.

    I think the difference now is that except for BYU--and it took Beck heroics to beat Utah on the last play--those teams had a huge talent and athleticism advanatage over the Utes. The odds were that the next time they'd be better ready for the Utes in every way and take care of business. The Huskies do have a talent and athleticism advantage, but not by much. And this Ute team has already beaten teams with a lot more talent and athleticism than Washington--USC and UCLA. Those teams certainly weren't caught napping against Utah, and their thoroughbreds prepared our team not to be overwhelmed by Washington's level of talent and athleticism, which is comparable to Cal's (if anything, Petersen's recruiting is a notch lower than Sark's--the one exception is Browning, who stands out in his recruiting classes).

    I agree that a key is to bring Browning down to earth. But Washington is not all about Browning; it's a balanced team. We're going to have to deter the running game and score points on offense, as well as limit Browning to a mediocre or bad game and get some turnovers.

    There's nothing structurally preventing the Utes from doing this. The problem is that for the first time this season we're facing a coach who is as good as ours.

    What's Marcus Williams's status?

    He's likely out, but since the U's new website is rather poor I haven't seen the depth chart.

    Those who saw him after he was hurt said he was in a full leg brace often used for ACL injuries.

    i heard gametime for Marcus. If he doesn't go this week, he is 100% expected back after the bye week.

    Whit said Marcus should not be out the whole season. But he wants to protec their privacy. I understand why, especially for the NFL prospects.

    I don't think they will abandon the run with a guy like Gaskin. The probably won't do too much running up the middle, but use him more him on lateral speed runs, or pass to him in the backfield.

    I actually figured out the U's new website. The banner that says "Utah vs Washington Pregame Notes" is actually the link to the full PDF release with the depth chart
