Stanford 34, Washington 14; Michigan 36, Indiana 33

Washington was done in at Stanford by lack of focus, three Jake Locker turnovers and Stanford's running back.

Michigan needed a (really) bad call in the last few minutes to save the day against Indiana.

I think both teams made it into the top 25 a bit prematurely. MSU is going to be even more pissed off than usual next week when Michigan comes to town given their close losses to Wisconsin and Notre Dame. On the other hand, I think ND is beatable for UW, given that they barely made it by Purdue yesterday and lost to Michigan.

And, to go back to last week when all things were glorious and good, here are some letters from USC fans in the LA times. My favorite:

Pete Carroll was simply protecting his princes by taking full responsibility for the Washington loss. To know what he was really thinking, simply recall former USC coach John McKay's reaction as coach of the newly formed, inept Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

After another error-filled loss, he was asked, "What do you think of your team's execution?" "I'm all for it," McKay quipped.
