    OK, so maybe not "gashers," but explosion plays (20+ yards) gained and given up by Pac 12 teams last year:

    Offense (Natl rank, # explosion plays)

    5. Oregon, 82
    14. Stanford, 69
    38. Arizona, 60
    48. Utah, 58
    57. Arizona State, 56
    71. USC, 52
    75. Washington, 50
    75. Oregon State, 50
    85. Washington State, 47
    96. Colorado, 43
    103. California, 39
    116. UCLA, 31

    Defense

    7. California... 34
    13. Arizona State... 38
    21. Arizona... 41
    28. Stanford... 43
    49. Oregon... 49
    52. Colorado... 50
    60. Utah... 52
    63. Oregon State... 53
    63. Washington... 53
    84. UCLA... 59
    95. Washington State...62
    99. USC... 63

    I was just encouraged to see that we brought down the explosive plays given up last year. In 2009, I think we gave up 40-something gashers (plays of 40+ yards)

    Just hearing the term gasher reminds of the egotistical boob that used to walk aimlessly on the sidelines of Folsom....

    I did too, for quite a while. Then, during a late season (or bowl, don't remember) game, the commentator mentioned "gashers".

    Most of us hear the term and we immediately think of the former regime. It's prolly used a lot more than we think.

    I'm sure you are right, but to me, it will always be a Hawkisim....

    Im surprised to see usc down at the bottom of this list.. with how young they are going to be for the next two years, I think we definitely have a shot to knock them off here in Boulder. Ugh is it August yet?
