It was paint-by-numbers for the Dawgman guys - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Scott Eklund - as they sketched out exactly why Washington lost to Colorado 20-17 Saturday afternoon.
It was the lack of a run game. It was the lack of stopping Colorado when they absolutely had to in the fourth quarter. But more than anything else, it was the Huskies losing the turnover battle by minus-four that crushed any of the positives that could have come from a game where they were able to generate nearly 430 yards of offense and go 14-21 on third downs.
It all started with the offensive line, who continued their inability to give the Washington running backs room to run, but most of the ire has been laid at the feet of quarterback Dylan Morris, and rightly so. What's ironic about that is he threw for a career-high 387 yards and two touchdowns.
But it was his two interceptions, as well as a fumble that was returned 88 yards for a touchdown, that undid any of his good work.
After breaking down the key plays that led to Washington's loss, the Dawgman guys then turned their attention to next week's Apple Cup. With the Cougars bowl-eligible and the Huskies staying home for the holidays, will the Dawgs have any motivation to do anything next Friday, or will they roll over and play dead?
Finally, the guys offer up a coaching search update, of sorts. It's actually more about the mechanics of the search, who Jen Cohen is leaning on to help make the decision, and how seriously to take rumors this early into a search.
