Huskies Coaches/Players Get Boner of the Week Award

Washington Arizona St Football**UPDATE** Video of the final touchdown is below The ending to the Washington/Arizona State game on Saturday night had to be nothing short of mind-numbing for Husky fans. To recap, with just under four minutes left, Eric Folk kicked a field goal to tie the game at 17. Arizona State got the ball back and drove just past midfield before seeing their drive stall with three straight incomplete passes. The Sun Devils decided to punt and they got a good one down to the 10 yard line leaving 1:17 left. At this point you figure Washington will do one of two things — either pass off the bat to try and move into field goal range or run the ball and settle for overtime. They decided to do a bit of both.

The Huskies handed the ball to Chris Polk twice in a row, setting up a 3rd and 1 with 27 seconds left. Considering they ran the ball on first and second down there’s no other conclusion to draw except that they had to be playing for overtime. But for some odd reason the Huskies decided to pass on 3rd and 1 and they threw an incompletion. On 4th down they punted to Arizona State which got the ball at midfield with 13 seconds left. The Sun Devils faced the same decision — take a shot down field or play for OT. They decided to go for broke and launched one past the Husky defense that completely blew the coverage, letting two receivers get behind them. Danny Sullivan completed a 50-yard touchdown pass to Chris McGaha for the game-winner. 24-17, ballgame.

Besides running the prevent defense (that only prevents victory) and rushing only three guys on the final play, the call to pass on 3rd down won’t be forgotten by Washington fans. U-Dub’s coaches may have looked great against USC but either they or the players made some boneheaded plays in the final minute of this game. Wow.
