08:31 AM ET 12.30 | Accounting for seven touchdowns and outplaying a Heisman Trophy winner in a record-setting shootout tends to catch the eye, as it did for a healthy Keith Price. "I can't say enough about the performance," [Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian] said. The best news for Washington fans is that Price will be around for possibly two more years. Just a sophomore, he turned in one of the better seasons in UW history. After outperforming Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III, will there be Heisman talk going around for Price. It's a possibility. "I think his future is very bright, and I think our future is very bright because of him," Sarkisian said.

This game proves they play NO defense in the 12-Pack or Big 12. That was worse than arena fooball

Sarkisian has the Huskies going in the right direction, no matter what you want to say about Baylor's D. PAC12ers better watch those guys.

Yep, they can't win a 9-6 game.

LOL! Do they still play arena football anywhere? If you were an offensive-oriented type, watching that was like a football orgazzzzm.

Question for you offense haters...just kiddin.

In the UTx game the other night, they asked Manny Diaz the differences in the two conference. According to them he said both were basically a product of their region. As examples he said the Big 12 doesn't have the quality/quantity of huge/mobile D-linemen because they aren't as plentiful in Big 12 states as they are in the SEC. He said the SEC doesn't have quantity/quality of QBs/Receivers the Big 12 does which he thinks is a result emphasizing that type of offense and the 7 on 7 emphasis in the Texas HS ranks!

I don't know if the commentators oversimplified his responses or that was his true assessment. They also claim he said he thought Baylor receiver Kendall Wright was the best receiver period. Your thoughts?

So the kid goes from nobody to Heisman front-runner, in one game eh ... don't think so.

Makes sense...and he has seen both conferences....but it might be over-simplifying a bit. SEC has had some very good QB's (the Mannings, Namath, eg) and some very good receivers (Moreno and JJ for two) while the Big XII* has had it's share of excellent D players...Tommy Nobis, the Selmon brothers....but perhaps in the overall picture he might have something...

and Kendall Wright sure looked good last night. As good as Broyles? Possibly, but would have like to have seen LJ and RB play that defense...lol

There does seem to be alot of grits-and-eggs D Linemen with above-average speed for their size in SEC recruiting areas. Not so sure about the rest of that, though. Maybe it's just a bias since my team is without a stud WR, but it seems like the number of star WRs from the Southeast is down lately.

My first response was hogwash for a couple of reasons but the more I thought about it I tended to think he might be right in the bigger picture. I thought I heard a stink about one of the SEC schools hosting 7 on 7 tournaments. If so, it is emphasized there. And I remember several D-linemen in the pros from the Big 12 schools. But, as a whole, Diaz assessment may be more accurate than not.

And there it is!


I've been waiting for a good double-post this morning so I can feel like it's a normal FN day...grumble grumble.

QUOTE(#17):

Threw for 4 td's and ran for 3 more, outgained the other team--and still lost. OT, they know not even how to spell defense much less use it. Shame, shame, shame.

That's what happens when you use all your scholarships on offensive players. No D.

Similar to those SEC schools that use all of their scholarships on defensive players. No O.

QUOTE(#2):

This is so not, they played against the Bears, no D. The B12 knows not what D stands for much less be able to do it. At best next year this kid wins 7 or 8 games, probably just 7. It is the 12 Pac, come on now, barely above the ACC.

What are you talking about?? RG3 is great, but Price outplayed him last night and yes both defenses sucked big time, but it was a fun game to watch. The Huskies, if they get any type of defense will win at least 9 games next game .
