    Week 2

    A signal caller and an entire offense share the dubious honor of being the week's worst:

    Cal QB, James Norman - 6/15, 48 yds, 2 INT
    Despite his team's impressive win against TCU, Norman did little to contribute.

    UCLA Offense - 172 yds, 6 sacks, QB Brandon Russ - 7/22 132 yds, INT
    The Bruins manage to score only 10 offensive points as Russ completed only 33% of his passes and was sacked six (6) times.

    Lol Norman threw 2 more picks vs OSU, nut threw 19-30 for 165 (iirc) and a td as well. I love James over Omar Smith of last year, but Smith had a good offseason and may start week 4 vs Penn State. I think Smith's accuracy numbers are the deciding factor here, although last year he threw much worse than the # showed. The real dilemma though is that Norman is facing high quality defenses, so how do you evaluate the first 2 games. Well in each James has waaaaay overthrown wide open wrs for ints and he is less mobile at this point than Smith, who can bring a tad more diversity to the offense. Since the offense is predicated on creativity, that might be best to see if Smith has really improved and can keep us in vs a quality cpu foe.

    Week 3

    No question as to who this Week's Worst was as Arizona State QB Cory Malone takes the honor. A far second is Washington State's defense who took the afternoon off against lowly Colorado.

    ASU QB, Cory Malone - 3/12, 19 yds, 2 INT
    The numbers tell the tale. Not much to say about Cory except that his night was mercifully ended at halftime.

    Washington State Defense - 519 total yards allowed (311 offensive), 42 points
    Allowing 42 points to Colorado is not a sign of a good defense.

    Dishonorable mention: Michigan State O-Line - 8 sacks allowed, yikes!!

    In my defense with regard to the points, I turned the ball over twice, deep inside my territory and Colorado scored two touchdowns. Then they got the long kickoff return setting up another easy score. In addition my special teams got a turnover after a score, then after that score Colorado turned the ball over on their first play after tying the game, so my defense was not completely that bad.

    You are not allowed to defend the worst of the week...take it and move on. Just ask Mr. Russ, who will be sitting on the bench for the next few weeks!

    I hear ya, but it's hard to pick out bad defensive performances from just looking at stats -- 42 points for Colorado just jumped out at me. Plus, I don't want to make this all about offense.

    Week 4

    There really wasn't much debate as to this week's worst, though a late entrant deserves dishonorable mention.

    Arizona State Offense - 0 points, 0 first downs, 16 total yards, QB Cody Vickers - 4/20, 19 yds, INT
    The stats tell the tale.

    Dishonorable Mention: UCLA QB Bernard Russ - 3/10, 52 yds, 4 Ints
    Russ makes his second and likely last appearance on the Weekly Worst as he will likely not see the field any time soon

    Week 5

    Not to feel left out, we now have a coach making an appearance in the Weekly Worst.

    Michigan State Head Coach/Offensive Coordinator:
    Lack of scoring? check! 6 offensive points
    Bad gameplan? check! 110 offensive yards
    Turnovers? check! 3 INT
    Coaching Gaffe? check! bringing in 2nd string QB for final possession of game

    To take a page from Animaniacs:

    Week 6

    Another bad offensive performance takes the Weekly Worst honors, magnified by its game's significance:

    Ohio St QB, Sammie Ingram - 6/18, 49 yards, 4 INT
    Ingram scored more points for the opposition than for his own team. The Buckeyes, in a match-up of #1 vs #2, laid an egg due to their QB play.

    Week 7

    Not too many bad performances this week, but we would like to recognize a bad performance in a victory.

    OSU HB Todd Roberson - 12 car, 13 yards, long of 5
    Either the O-line did not want to block for him or he kept tripping over his laces as the other Ohio State running backs combined for 74 yards on 10 carries and 2 TD.

    Dishonorable Mention: ASU QBs Cory Malone and Cody Vickers - 10/29, 153 yards, TD, 4 INT
    It goes without saying the revolving door at QB continues for the Sun Devils. One of Malone's 3 INT led directly to the only Cal touchdown of the afternoon.

    Cal's defense will probably be the force of the week 8 weekly worst as well. The stats speak for themselves against coach Worgums Cougs.

    It's only a matter of time before a Stanford QB finds his way into this topic... maybe I'll have to beat Colorado without throwing a pass again :p

    Week 8

    A team fall from the ranks of the unbeaten, undone by its quarterback play. We present Week 8's Worst:

    WSU QB Andrew Jones - 6/21, 53 yards, 5 INT
    The Cougars are unable to muster any points on offense after having scored no less than 28 points in their previous outings. Look no further than Jones for an explanation.

    Dishonorable mention: Northwestern's Pass Defense - Allowed 424 yards and 2 TD to Iowa on only 20 completions, a cool average per reception of 21 yards!!

    Week 9

    Stop the run, Stop the run!!

    WSU Run Defense - 195 rushing yards allowed, 3 TD
    Despite all the game planning to stop the run, the Cougar defense was shredded to the tune of 7.5 yards per carry and 3 TD, most of the work turned in by Stanford HB Mark Howell.

    In 2 years my entire secondary will be seniors and wont allow 424 yards. Until then...ugh. They make me grow gray hair faster.
