Arizona 48 Washington 14

It wasn't that close.

Washington is now 0-5 for the first time since I was seven years old. They hold the nation's longest losing streak at seven games.

They are starting to play like they did during Gilbertson's one-win season after the sudden departure of Slick Rick, the year before Willingham arrived.

Part of this is a deluge of injuries, to be sure, but that is not all of it or really even most of it when losing this badly to a team that is going to be a lot less happy when they face some of the better teams in the Pac-10.

In keeping with the recent Benji theme, here is the Seattle Times column from Jerry Brewer about his childhood pet, and his wish that that Lord would "please take him".
