Just not much to be excited about for this rabid sports fan

(Just for humor sake, here's an article on the top 10 most disappointing plays for the Seattle Seahawks, Washington Huskies and Washington State Cougars thus far this season. It's sad, but when seasons like this occur, you have to retain your sense of humor somehow.)

(It’s good to hear Seahawks defensive end Patrick Kerney’s exploratory shoulder surgery went well and that he is expected to return to play this season. The Seahawks can’t afford another long-term injury to a star player)

(Could the Washington basketball program really be a force in the Pac-10 this year? With Isaiah Thomas and Jon Brockman leading the way, who knows? Finally ... SOMETHING to be excited about!!!)

Not much changed last week other than what we already knew. The Seahawks are helpless on offense without Matt Hasselbeck and Deion Branch. At 2-6 there’s virtually no shot they can make the playoffs if those two don’t come back. Granted, in the horrible division known as the NFC West, anything is possible. With two games remaining against first-place Arizona, the Seahawks could still conceivably snatch the division crown. But they need to beat Arizona both times and they NEED to get healthy. This week they got Miami on the road. After being Denver at Mile High last Sunday, the Dolphins can’t be taken lightly this year. Hasselbeck will miss the game, so you almost feel like the Seahawks should just throw in the towel.

The Huskies are still winless and looking like crap. Nothing new there. Can Tyrone Willingham just leave now? Seriously, what's the point?

BYU’s defense is still looking more and more like a high school JV one. Nothing new there either. No doubt some of my BYU fan friends may be thinking No. 23 Ryan??? I know. It’s a steep drop considering I had them in the Top 20 last week. How can you drop a team after winning? Simple. I know the offense is good. But it’s not unsolvable. We saw TCU solve it. The reason it’s been having success the last two games is not just because it’s good though, but because UNLV and Colorado State just suck. And the fact that those two teams could hang a collective 77 points on BYU shows how horrible the Cougars’ defense is. This team probably wouldn’t beat Northwestern or Minnesota so I’m being gracious putting them at No. 23. I suppose 8-1 has to count for something. It’s just sad that a team which had such high expectations has essentially become the 2008 Hawaii Warriors.
