Pac-12 Roundtable: Washington State disappoints the most in Week 4

The Washington State Cougars disappoint the most in blowing their 4th quarter lead to the Colorado Buffaloes. Utah was meek in their loss to Arizona State and Arizona's offense did nothing against Oregon.

Avinash Kunnath, Pacific Takes & California Golden Blogs: Washington State. Blowing a 17 point lead with 7 minutes to go is pretty bad. Giving up two touchdowns of over 70 yards or more is worse. Going for it with a chance to make it a three TD game with a field goal is avarice. Come on Leach.

Jon Woods, Ralphie Report: I know that Oregon's defense has improved, but how in the hell do you get zero points out of seven red zone trips, Arizona? I mean that is just nearly impossible to pull off. The Wildcat defense played quite well in the first half, but the offense robbed us of what could have been an extremely entertaining game.

Trevor Wong, Conquest Chronicles: Washington State. The Cougars blew a 17-point lead and allowed Colorado to score 21 points in the final seven minutes of play? Come on, man.

Jack Follman, Pacific Takes: Arizona's offense. I think their defense actually played pretty well and basically limited Oregon to four touchdowns at home, and that is really hard to do, so I don't think their defense deserves any blame. Their offense had the chance to put up 28 points easily in the first half and 14 in the second half and they came away with 0 because of unpressured bad passes, dropped passes, fumbles and just plain unforced mistakes.

JazzyUte, Block U: Utah. I am just utterly disappointed about everything with this team. I hope they can get it together, but if last Saturday was a showcase of what’s to come ... yikes.

Ryan Rosenblatt, Bruins Nation: Washington St. lost to Colorado. 'Nuff said.

David Piper, Addicted to Quack: Washington State. You can't blow a 17 point fourth quarter lead at home. Especially to Colorado, who I was ready to anoint the worst team in conference history. Side note: how is it that Wazzu's offense got worse under Mike Leach.

Scott Allen, Rule of Tree: Washington State. The Cougars deserved a mention on MNF's "C'mon Man" after blowing a 17-point fourth-quarter lead to Colorado at home.

AndyPanda, Building the Dam: California. Everyone is saying Washington St., but their defense has been very poor bordering on bad all season. The Bears out-played Ohio St. but still managed to lose that game. I never thought they had any chance to beat a USC team in the Coliseum that was bouncing back from a loss, but the Bears should have been more competitive.

UteCentral, Ute Football Central & Pacific Takes: Tie between Washington State and Utah. The Cougars gave up a game that they controlled and lost to a terrible 0-3 Colorado team that lost to Colorado St and Sac St. That is a bad loss for the Cougars especially against a team which is consider perhaps the only "easy out" in the league. While many didn't expect Utah to win at ASU, I don't think anyone expected a complete collapse by the Utes especially on defense who could not stop the Sun Devils the entire first half. After being voted 3rd in the Pac-12 and second behind USC in the South, with the exception of the BYU game, the Utes have disappointed at nearly ever turn.

awbutler, Pac Hoops & Pacific Takes: When you don’t beat the team that people were joking was already down 17-0 on Thursday, I’m surprised. When it’s at home and following a 17-point closing quarter lead? That’s when I become disappointed. I do, however, like to give credit where credit is due and Pac-12 POW winner, Jordan Webb, was tough late. Everyone likes a closer.

Justin Karp, Pacific Takes & Bold Saguaros: A clear tie between Utah and Washington State. Wazzu gets a little bit of an an edge for blowing a two touchdown lead at home against the clear #14 team the Pac-12, but it's hard to excuse Utah, coming off a very emotional victory over their rival, from completely forgetting they were playing a game of collegiate football in Tempe.
