A few news and notes for a Sunday morning:
--- Here's my story on Saturday's scrimmage, which includes a few quotes not in the earlier post.
One quote that didn't make it in the final cut was backup quarterback Ronnie Fouch's assessment of how the Husky defense looks under new coordinator Ed Donatell.
"They are disguising everything and the blitz schemes are a lot better than we had in the past,'' he said.
--- Oregon, the first opponent next year for the Huskies, also scrimmaged yesterday and one of the stars was again 235-pound JC transfer running back LaGarrette Blount. Oregon coach Mike Bellotti is quoted as saying that Blount is "better than I thought he might be.'' So sounds as if the Ducks may have round their replacement for Jonathan Stewart.
Oregon's QBs, however, struggled, going just 13-26 for 83 yards with three interceptions.
--- BU, UW's second opponent next year, also scrimmaged, and also got a good performance from a new running back, redshirt freshman J.J. DiLuigi. Here's another story on DiLuigi. That scrimmage marked the end of spring drills for BYU and here's a good overview at the Cougars at the end of spring ball.
--- Oklahoma, another UW opponent next season, held its spring game, and columnist Dave Sittler says not to worry that QB Sam Bradford threw three inteceptions. Here's a recap of the spring game, reporting that OU's ball-hawking secondary dominated.
--- UCLA also scrimmaged yesterday and coach Rick Neuheisel then named Pat Cowan, the son of former Husky Tim Cowan, as the team's No. 1 QB. That caused Ben Olson to grumble that he maybe hadn't been given a fair shot at the job.
--- USC also scrimmaged and QBs Mark Sanchez and Mitch Mustain continued to struggle.
--- Notre Dame, another UW opponent next year, is in the middle of its spring drills. Here's a good overview of where the Irish stand.
All for now.
