"The hiring of Mike Leach at Washington State just made the Pac-12 North tougher, and the Northwest far more hotly contested. My guess is, yes, Kelly, Steve Sarkisian and, you, Coach Riley, at least raised an eyebrow. And, yes, the Beavers coach will be on the hotseat in 2012. A third consecutive losing season could threaten a guy who was among the most secure coaches in college football just two years ago, particularly if the Cougars perk up, the Huskies win eight or nine games and Oregon continues to go to BCS bowl games."

"The best performers of the young players Saturday? Sarkisian’s take: “I thought Dezden Petty looked pretty dang good, He’s come a long way from training camp to where he is now. Some of the young defensive lineman, Jarett Finau I thought really stood out today. Corey Waller made a nice play, Josh Perkins, Jamaal Jones, a lot of young guys, so it was good. Excited to see them come back out and do it again tomorrow.”"

"The other point that stands out is the difficulty of winning non-conference road games. Washington opened 2008-09 with a six-point loss at Portland, a team of similar ability to Nevada, yet went on to win the Pac-10 regular-season title. Remarkably, the Huskies have just two non-conference road wins in their six NCAA tournament campaigns under Romar: at San Diego State in 2003-04 and at Loyola Marymount in 2004-05. So while last night’s outcome was disappointing, it’s not really an indication of how the season will go."

"In spite of early struggles Lorenzo Romar’s team had every opportunity to sew up a win at Nevada late Friday night, but the inability to act on a simple instruction opened the door for the Wolf Pack."

"The glaring absence of Isaiah Thomas finally reared it’s ugly head tonight as no one took the game over late and the entire team dropped the ball. As our good friend @Sarkisianity put it on twitter: “This team has ZERO leadership. Captains need to step up. It’s not a honorary title. It means something.”"

"The Pac-12’s representative appears to be Washington after Oregon’s victory over UCLA in the conference’s inaugural title game Friday night."
