It's a special edition of DawgmanRadio, Kim Grinolds was joined by his youngest son Kyle, who was in Boulder Saturday night. It was supposed to be a celebratory weekend, but the only ones doing the celebrating at Folsom Field were the Colorado Buffaloes, as they beat Washington 20-14.

It was a huge win for the Buffaloes, who got one step closer to bowl eligibility and especially for the seniors, who had never beaten the Huskies. In fact, the last time Colorado beat Washington was back in 1996. The Huskies had beaten the Buffs nine times in a row before Saturday night's disaster.

Kim and Kyle break down what went wrong for Washington, so they were busy. They gave props to Colorado's Laviska Shenault, who was a play or two away from breaking the game open. They also talked about how Colorado played the field position game, often starting drives deep and having to play out of the shadow of their end zone.

But mostly, they talked about a broken offense. Where is it going wrong? Where isn't it going wrong? It started with Jaxson Kirkland limping off the field early in the game, eventually watching the rest of it on the sidelines on crutches. Henry Bainivalu was Kirkland's replacement, and Kim and Kyle discuss his night.

The Huskies couldn't get anything going with their running backs, running 25 times for 61 yards. They also talked about Jacob Eason's tendency to lock in on receivers and go backward under pressure instead of stepping up and through the pocket.

What is going on with the junior quarterback? With NFL scouts in attendance, both Kim and Kyle talk about Eason's game and what's missing. And where were the younger receivers? Everyone heard Chris Petersen talk about doing a deep dive into why the offense was broken as far back as after the Rose Bowl. Well, it's still broken.

And lastly, what does this performance mean for Friday's Apple Cup game? Will Washington be able to even score enough points to beat Washington State, who just gave up 53 points to Oregon State?
