I'm moving this item from where I first had it to give it some more play.
Not sure if this happened to anyone else, but the sound on my streaming of media day went out about halfway through Rick Neuheisel's comments, so I may not have much more from media day --- I'll try to look for any links with news and pass those along.
But I turned to KJR just in time to catch the end of Dave Mahler's interview with Neuheisel.
Mahler concluded by asking Neuheisel his thoughts on the current state of the Husky program.
Neuheisel dodged the part about whether he feels like the downturn started with his tenure but said: "I feel badly that the University of Washington isn't as excited about its program as they were in that time that I was there because it's a great city, a great program. I have high confidence in Tyrone in terms of bringing back that stuff. I don't think any players I recruited (are still there) other than Juan (Garcia). He's a gutty kid and I wish him nothing but the best. But the University of Washington is a special place and I will always be thankful for my opportunity there and I hope and wish them nothing but the best, I really do.''
He then added that "the Huskies have one of the best players in the country in Jake Locker so they are going to line up every week with a chance.''
