Camp schedule set

Posted by Bob Condotta

The Huskies have released an initial version of their fall camp schedule to media.

UW will hold its first practice Monday, Aug. 4, at 3:45 p.m. The first two-a-day is Saturday, Aug. 9, after the NCAA-mandated acclimatization period.

UW will take off each Sunday through the three-weeks of camp but will practice at least once every other day until leaving for Eugene on Aug. 29.

On many days, UW will again hold split practices --- half the team going in one session, half in another --- something coach Tyrone Willingham has done throughout his time at Washington, feeling fewer players on the field can result in more and better work for those who are out there.

As noted the other day, Picture Day is Aug. 9 at 1 p.m.

There are no practices slated to be open to the media, a switch from previous years when at least one or two would be open, including the first practice. Media will once again be allowed to view the first 25 minutes of each practice, but no more.

As always, however, this is subject to change. Other than Picture Day, however, I don't see any events on here that would be open to the general public.

Why so serious?

I like the no open practices. We have the potential to really catch some of our early competition by supprise with our young talent and how we utilize them. Our youth can use any advantage we can get. If it helps pull off a early victory and can get our confidence up it certainly couldn't hurt.

No open practices? Are we really going to be that bad this year that we can't be watched? Maybe they should close the games too!

Whoops, you are correct, it is Monday and not Sunday. Change has been made.

You ever been to a practice? Not really that exciting. If you need to go watch someone work, go shadow your daddy at work.

As I wrote, this is a tentative schedule and things can change. I am told that the part about no practices being open could change, that is not set in stone, so we'll see.

Burien is right that there are two times listed for Picture Day. What we got today says 1, the web site says 1:30. Maybe just be there at 1:15 to be safe --- I'm assuming they will clarify that as we get closer to it.
