HCA: Kicker rankings aka Andrew Furney domination

Ted Miller ranked the Pac-12 kickers and Andrew Furney dominated.

Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE

Ted Miller's position previews worked their way to kicker on Monday, which is the one ranking for WSU to shine. As expected, WSU ranked in the "great shape" category. If Miller hadn't put Furney in the top group, we may have had to burn the ESPN Pac-12 blog's Utica branch to the ground.

Here is what Miller had to say:

Washington State: Andrew Furney was second-team All-Pac-12 and kicked a 60-yard field goal against Eastern Washington, the longest in the nation last year. Doesn't kick off.

WSU was listed behind Oregon State, which would imply Furney is the No. 2 kicker in the conference heading into the season.

Poll: Most shocking 2012 game? - Pac-12 Blog - ESPN

The Apple Cup had no national impact, but it featured not only the biggest comeback in the 105 meetings between Washington and Washington State, it featured a comeback like that from a two-touchdown underdog.

Washington State 31, Washington 28 (OT): The results themselves of the above games were surprising, and the same could be said of this game, too. But the shock of this final was as much about how it happened. The Huskies were heavy favorites and, according to form, they led by 18 points in the fourth quarter. The Cougars, losers of eight consecutive games, including a 46-7 white flag effort the previous week at Arizona State, were surely ready to pack it in and bury a horrible first season under Mike Leach in an unmarked grave somewhere along the Palouse. Yet the Cougs stormed back with 21 consecutive points, and the Huskies wilted in one of the sloppiest efforts you'll ever see, getting flagged 17 times for 127 yards. It was the largest comeback in the 105 meetings between the schools.
