No one takes WSU seriously. They're the high school tag-along little brother you have to bring to the party because the parents are out of town and you can't leave him home alone. Sure you can embarrass him, strut around, and talk shit, but what's the point? He's not in the same league so picking on him is just pathetic.

UW is the measuring stick against which WSU will compare itself in perpetuity. Without UW WSU has no identity.

Same as UW's "rivalry" with Oregon as of late.

This game always sucks for UW.

If they win they were supposed to win, if they lose then it's like the super bowl for the cougs.

The game for UW is much worse to lose then what they gain from winning.

Wow. Cougs with the comeback! How much do you Husky's trust Price in this situation? For Coug fans, it must be nice to have a kicker that can actually make a kick.

Well with all the flags coming out in this game I don't think it will be who's the best but who has the ball last.

Nice job by Sark icing his own kicker though.

I thought it was a good call. He clearly bobbed his head trying to get an offsides, thats a penalty. You're right though, there's been a lot of bad calls both ways. Pac 12 officiating is terrible.

Wow, what a bonehead play by Price right there.

Sarkisian is not a good coach.

I hope he stays at Washington for a long time.

Man, i was rooting for the Huskies in that game, but...

Giving up a huge 2nd half lead.

Icing your own kicker at the end of regulation.

Totally bonehead interception in overtime.

I'm pretty sure UW just Coug'd it.

With as big a lead as UW had you'd better be able to win no matter what the refs do. This is coming from a UW grad, the Huskies get knocked back to reality of being a so-so team and the Cougs get a well deserved celebration as being the team to do it. That's the point of rivalry games, records mean nothing. Us UWers can't fall back on our better record as we slink back home with tails between legs.

I'm a Husky fan and I can't even help but laugh.

Congrats Cougs, deserved win. Hopefully at some point college football in Washington regains some respectability.

As a side note, if this doesn't open up the QB competition next year Sark is even more incompetent than he showed today.

Might sound petty, I really wanted to look at 8-4 instead of 7-5 again.

A bowl is a bowl. The Cougs obviously played like today was theirs. Would have liked the win today, but the Huskies really only put one quarter together. People can complain about calls or anything else but it comes down to the Cougs playing a full game and the Huskies thinking they could win while only playing one quarter. I hate losing an Apple Cup, but given the choice between losing an Apple Cup and playing in a bowl game or winning the Apple Cup and no bowl game I'll take the loss and a bowl game. Especially considering the lead the Huskies have in total Apple Cup wins.

There's only one team in all of college football that would consider a season successful as long they win one game. Seriously Cougs, I'm sure you'll still be celebrating this win a month from now, while we move on to bigger and better things.

Unless there was a 2nd timeout I didn't see, he wasn't icing his own kicker. The team wasn't even lined up to snap. They were just running the clock down to the minimum (5 seconds left) before calling a timeout to ensure WSU would have no chance of a comeback in regulation. It was definitely the right thing to do.

I mean, I guess it is technically icing him, since he had to wait an extra 60 seconds from after his warmup kicks to the real thing, but that kind of timeout is very, very routine.

Coons is a mediocre kicker. Has been all season. He's no Erik Folk. Not even close. Not only did he badly miss it, but distance wise if he had made it it would have only cleared the crossbar by about 10 feet... if that. Which is pretty damn scary considering that it was only a 35 yard attempt.

At this point, I think he has to. He probably won't though.

In fairness, Price might be a new man with Daniels and Stringfellow next season. Unlike rookies in the NFL, college freshman WRs are known for having an instant impact fairly often. After watching the last two seasons, I think the truth about Price is that he's only as good as his supporting cast.

Don't get the anger, it was simulating the snap, it was a hell of a head bob, it was a good call. I'll never understand why either side chooses defaming the other after a win or loss. Also don't get why a nine loss season is wiped out because we won one game. I'm shocked the Huskies are taking this so hard, the Cougs played harder and were coached better today, that's how it goes sometimes.

Downplay the Apple Cup all you want, but I'd rather win the Apple Cup than play in one of the lesser bowl games. I certainly find it more satisfying than being declared Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl champions. A bigger bowl game, sure, but not one of the influx of random bowl games that have watered the whole thing down, and I'd be saying that if the Cougs lost the Apple Cup and were heading to the prestigious New Mexico Bowl as well.

That's just the heat of the moment. It doesn't at all. Winning the Apple Cup is just a cherry on top of a turd sundae.

Bowl games are better. Huskies lost their bowl game last year..... but it was more exciting than watching the Apple Cup. Yearly rivalry game is cool...but at the begining of every season the goal is "lets make a bowl game", you don't hear a team say "lets win the apple cup". I can see you don't have much to be happy about so you cling to this (I probably would too and pretend it was the most important game ever). Im not a college football fan anymore as its lost its luster the further removed I have become from my years in college....but cheering for a 2 or 3 win season is like Cam Newton doing his superman celebration down 20.

Clearly you're having a very hard time with this. I'm sorry about tonight's game.

I value rivalry games more than winning a Doritos trophy for whatever crap Cooler Ranch Bowl a team ends up in. I'm not saying I don't enjoy bowl games, but they don't carry a lot of weight, because there are just too many random games that have over saturated the market. So, no, it's not about clinging onto anything, it's simply valuing a yearly rivalry game that brings the attention of just about every Washingtonian football fan onto one game more than the Carl's Jr Double Bacon Blaster Bowl. Bowl games are fun, but unless we're talking about the bigger bowl games, that's pretty much all they are.

Man, some of you guys are pathetically sore losers.

I don't see how it's absurd to think some long standing rivalry games carry more weight than the Belk Bowl...but but but it's a bowl!

I have to agree with Pinksheets. For WSU this win means more than when UW beat Stanford or Oregon State. It's a pretty big deal, even more so since it meant avoiding an 0-9 Pac-12 run this season.

Have to disagree with the bowl bashing. As someone who suffered through UW's bowl drought I know how important they are for a program. You really miss them when you're not going and I'd trade a rivalry loss for a bowl appearance every time. Of course, I want it all - - Apple Cups, Rose Bowls, and more - - so this loss sucks hard. It actually hurts most because it takes away from the positive vibe and prestige the season had going. That's where it really gets me, more so than losing to a rival. Cougs face-smashed us and left us with the same exact type of season we've been having the last couple of years. Average, mediocre, and disappointing.

Man, some of you guys are pathetically sore losers.

I don't see how it's absurd to think some long standing rivalry games carry more weight than the Belk Bowl...but but but it's a bowl!


Not a sore loser at all. I think WSU played the game well and UW only put one decent quarter together (and not just the players, the coaches as well.) I think it was a well earned victory by WSU. I think a the win for WSU held a lot more value than it did for UW and that was obvious in the way both teams played. I also fully disagree that a rivalry game is more important than a bowl game. That is like saying beating SF is more important than making the playoffs. If I had to pick one or the other, I would pick the playoffs every time. Saying otherwise comes from an acceptance of losing.

No, it isn't. Getting into the playoffs is a path to being the world champs, getting into the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas is not.

Look, I'm not saying bowl games are worthless or it isn't great to get into any bowl game. Good for UW for having a strong enough season to be bowl eligible, I wish Wazzu could get back to that kind of play. You're telling me if UW went into Autzen and smashed the Ducks at home, that wouldn't be as memorable a part of the season as if the Huskies got to play a post-season game in Vegas against a Mountain West team?

I'm not clinging to the Apple Cup because the Cougars suck, the Apple Cup is a big deal, even if Husky fans like to brush it off to pretend they've got bigger fish to fry. It's the state rivalry game with a pretty damn good history. It's a moment when almost every Washington sports fan is fixated on one event, with friendly and not so friendly rivalries between friends, family, coworkers, etc. If the Huskies don't think so, well, that's probably why they didn't come into this game with as much heart as the Wazzu kids did.

Rivalries, to me, are a bigger part of college football than the litany of randomly sponsored bowl games. I love the big bowl games, and of course I'd be happy to watch the Cougars play in any bowl game, but I like the bragging rights that come from beating the Huskies more than those that come from being the 7th best team in the Pac-12 and beating the 4th best from the Mountain West in beautiful Albuquerque. I'm just saying some rivalry games are bigger than some bowl games, a bowl game is not intrinsically better or more important than all regular season games, nor do I think the Apple Cup is more important than every bowl game.

Man I wanted it all, screw the Cougars, to me there is no reason at all to lose to a team that let the scrubby Colorado Buffaloes come back and beat 'em, rival or not.

Cougars defense came out and punched the Dawgs offense in the mouth and the Dawgs backed the hell down, that was so damn pathetic. I don't care what has to happen to create a new attitude on this UW team, but it needs to happen. There is no way in HELL that they could've backed down that easily to the Cougars. Salute to Wilcox for having his side of the ball under control, Sark on the other hand? I'm wearing thin...

Gratz to the Cougs, Huskies looked uninterested if thats poissible, flat at least and there were a lot of flags also, not taking away from the Cougs they fought for the win where the Huskies seemed to thinjk it was just going to be theirs by showing up.

Having said all that, next years cup is going to be much more interesting now. I watch the Cup everyyear because of games like today, weird stuff and unexpected things happen in these games.

It sucks that the far superior team lost.
