UW coach Tyrone Willingham just held his daily briefing with the media and confirmed that J.R. Hasty has been suspended from the team, that he will likely be out for the rest of the spring, but that a final determination on his status has yet to be made.
Here's his complete statement on Hasty:
"He has been suspended from the team. His status as it stands for the spring game is that he will probably not play and I have not made a final decision on what his status will be with the football team. When that moment arises I will communicate that to you. Other than that, I will not have anything else to say regarding that.''
GARCIA SAYS NO TO SEVENTH YEAR: I've seen a few of you wonder about that so I'll relay what Juan Garcia said when asked whether he would think about trying to petition for another year.
"Even if I could I would not do that. Ther's no way,'' he said.
So that should put a rest to that.
PRACTICE UPDATE (4:30 p.m.): Not much to really report, which is why I decided to just throw it down here.
Jordan Murchison remains out and as far as I can tell, he's only had a practice or two this spring, which may help explain some of the recent movement in the secondary. Byron Davenport also appeared hobbled and didn't appear to be in full pads (he was wearing sweats).
The team ended conditioning with a little passing contest with offensive players and defensive players competing to see who could hit the crossbar first from about 20 years (excluding quarterbacks). An offensive player hit it after a few tries (we couldn't tell who it was) so the defensive coaches all had to run a line. Other than that, looked pretty status quo.
