Afternoon notes

Posted by Bob Condotta

The Huskies had been scheduled for two practices today but instead cancelled the afternoon workout after going hard this morning.

Coaches explained that they felt it was time to give the players a little break after a long camp.

"You can tell, as long as most of us have done this, when to let up a little bit,'' said UW offensive coordinator Tim Lappano adding that he had "noticed a little lack of overall speed'' from some of the players in recent days.

The afternoon practice was apparently scheduled to be more of a walk-through, or what coach Tyrone Willingham termed "a mock game for the coaches'' to prepare them for game-like conditions. Willingham said an additional practice could be added later --- teams are allowed 29 in the pre-season --- but that probably not one specifically replacing what was to take place today. "No, I think we are fine there,'' he said.

Willingham added that he expects both coordinators --- Lappano and Ed Donatell --- to work down on the field this year. Kent Baer spent part of last season upstairs before moving to the field.

As for personnel updates, Willingham said center Juan Garcia missed practice this morning due to a death in the family but could be back tomorrow, when the team is expected to hold its final pre-season scrimmage. Lappano said Garcia had a little scare with his foot in practice on Tuesday but that it was simply that --- "more of a scare than anything. He's fine.'' Asked if Garcia could start against Oregon, Willingham said that would be the preference but that "it's still too early to say.''

He said S Nate Williams sat out practice with "a bruise'' that "just caught up to him a little bit.''

In other notes:

--- Willingham said that QB Jake Locker "has been fine'' with Lappano adding that Locker has had two good days throwing the ball the last two days and doesn't think he really lost much in that area during his time off.

--- Willingham said the running back situation still remains a little uncertain and that "it was nice'' to see Brandon Johnson back out there, adding another body to the mix. Lappano said decisions on the depth chart will begin to be made Friday.

--- Both Willingham and Lappano praised the play of true freshman center Mykenna Ikehara, who has been one of the freshman standouts of camp. Lappano said it was too early to say whether Ikehara will play this season and the preference would be to redshirt him, but that he could be "on red alert'' this year to play if needed.

--- Willingham said the defensive line is "still shaky'' in terms of personnel asserting itself.

--- Willingham said he was glad to see the return of TE Michael Gottlieb and that he is "fairly confident'' Gottlieb will be able to start against Oregon after missing more than a week with a hamstring injury.

--- Willingham said the team is still sorting out the return game, as well, saying "if we could fine a couple of return guys to give us a spark, we could have an above-average return game.'' He said Jordan Polk could handle some of those responsibilities but that "we haven't made any decisions.''

With practice done for the day there doesn't figure to be any more news from Montlake, but I may add a post or two later.

This was posted on a Notre Dame blog site. I found it really interesting.

".... Most importantly, it is well known within the 'top circles' of Notre Dame that Ty Willingham was violating his contract by using an 'intermediary' to make contacts with another school while still head coach at ND. He did this shortly after the October home loss to Pitt of his final season. The ND BOT found out fairly late in November and met to determine Ty's fate. It was what it was. Ty was ready to leave. Took the firing instead because of the buyout. A buyout, which in the last 3 years, he was paid more by Notre Dame than Weis, even as a UW employee. Ty Willingham was in violation and that was the reason for his dismissa..."

You know, I don't quite understand the ongoing ND obsession with Willingham. Guilt, which doesn't make sense.

I think most of us on here despise Neuheisel, but don't think we're still obsessing about him, especially since this last recruting class that Willingham brought in for us. I just don't quite understand the ND fixation. I mean, it isn't as if ND wasn't already going down the tube before him.

Many teams are skipping practice today. Michigan's players took a day at the pool. The players needed a break, both mentally and physically.

Onewood, I have heard that numerous times, once right after Willingham was fired from some high up Tyees. From what I understood, by year mid year 3, Willingham and his family weren't happy in ND and TW felt many high ups at ND were already throwing him under the bus despite winning 10 games in his first year, rebuilding the roster with talented players, and winning against Michigan and @ Tennessee that year...and that he essentially wanted to get out mid-season but that ND fired him after they got wind of it and ND lost to Pitt b/c they wanted to cut him loose and not the other way around.

I actually also heard that Emmert and Turner flew out to see Willingham that year, don't know if it was when UW played @ ND or later in the year to see if he wanted to come back to the Pac-10 and coach at Washington.

I don't have any confirmed facts, just what I heard a few times.

SuperFraud is a Yuck fan, don't dignify him with a response.

I understand the ND obsession with Willingham because I often see a similar obsession in the investing and political world. When someone or a group, school etc. makes a bold decision or assertion, they have so much at stake to justify why they made that decision. They will go to any length to twist data and info in any which way to fit their decision or hypothesis.

ND fans are only right about one thing and that was how bad Kent Baer was, especially after half-time. They also complained Willingham's recruiting was getting worse and that he played golf too much. Willingham's 2002 class he signed was ranked #13 by Scout and his 2003 class was ranked #5. His 2004 class was not very good and around #35, probably because ND went 5-6 that year (hope he learned his lesson about golfing since people were pissed about that). His 2005 class got off to a slow start but I imagine it would've picked up since the team ended up going bowling.

Anyway, when they made such a controversial decision (firing a guy when his first recruiting class are just JRs, has gone 21-15 in those 3 years, and is primed for a big 4th year with tons of talent returning) and take so much heat for it, they feel the need to justify it in any way they can that they made the right decision.

Of course, that's why the 3-9 record they had last year was so amusing. They ripped Ty for his subpar 2004 class after Weis enjoyed one year with his 2002 class and two years with his #5 2003 class (Quinn, etc for 2 years) but then when they graduated, he fell flat on his face. They said it was because there was no upperclass talent yet fail to acknowledge that Davie didn't leave Willingham with much at all after his first year either. That's probably why the team went 5-6 and 6-5 the next two years (but not a terrible 3-9).

Jason,

I'd be OK with Kirby going to UW, but it would really upset me if he goes to WSU. His family has known the new coach at WSU for a long time, and Wulff recruited Kellen very strongly, so I think that's the reason Kirby is tempted by WSU. However, I think a chance for Kirby to red-shirt, and play three with his brother would be to good to pass-up if I were him.

RedDawg,

I think that probably answers your question from yesterday

Onewood,

I think the running back you were thinking about was John Tate. He committed to UW, but changed his mind and never came in. Don't know what happened to him after that.

Posted by augiedawg70

1:53 PM, Aug 20, 2008

Thanks, HFNY

So, if we beat ND this year and they end up 3-9 again, it won't be Willingham's fault?

Personally I think 3-9 is on Weis just like 4-9 is on TW. By year 3 a coach has had enough time to recruit a few classes to fill the holes he inherits in the depth chart, and to "coach up" the roster he inherited.

I also don't think that after the first tier (e.g. USC, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Texas) the talent gaps between BCS schools are as great as we sometimes assume. Despite the bashing of Ty's recruiting, Weis inherited Quinn, Samardzija, Zibby, Laws, Walker etc etc from him.

And turning that around, while the '04 Huskies weren't the most talented group, by the same token TW inherited Joe Toledo, Isaiah Stanback, Louis Rankin, James Sims, CJ Wallace, Dashon Goldson, Roy Lewis, Juan Garcia and Casey Bulyca.

2:18 PM, Aug 20, 2008

Seattle Dave, I hear what you're saying about 2007 and UW. Unfortunately, Willingham at UW didn't inherit anything close to what he left for Weis at ND. Nor was ND coming off a 1-10 season, but a 6-5 record with a bowl game. The last two years, I believe 11 Willingham recruits were drafted while the list you supplied has only 9 total player with only 3 of those players drafted and Toledo missed most of 2005 while Stanback missed half of 2006.

save you some time this season:

UW will go 4-8 this year

Ty will have "reasons" for every loss and the same lines from last year

"We need to learn how to win"
"We need to learn how to finish"
"This team is about playing championship level football"
"We're close"

UW's defense will be only slightly better than last years worst defense ever in the history of the school as true frosh try to match wits and power with Jr's and Sr's.

The season will end with everyone saying
"Well, we look loaded for '09"

Shall I give you a sneak peek into '09??????

sure

More of the same

UW is now the Duke football program of the west coast.

Brooks-

More plausible that the noise at Autzen comes from fans banging together bags of silver dollars passed out by Phil Knight at the stadiums entrance.

Or gasps of embarrassment from the crowd when they see their players walk onto the field in uniforms that look like they are covered in smurf vomit.

Posted by Seattle Dave

2:46 PM, Aug 20, 2008

I don't think there is any question that Weis inherited a better deal at ND than TW did here. Brady Quinn alone would account for that, I think. I'm just saying that a) by year 3 it is on the guy who is there, and b) the idea that we had no talent at all on the roster is a myth. We had at least 9 guys (Gunheim is a 10th and there may be a few others) who either have already earned NFL paychecks or will be getting a long look from the league.

My point is that with the 85 man limit, major conference teams that aren't in the recruiting elite (USC et al) are, broadly speaking, going to have somewhat similar talent levels. If even the worst team in the Pac-10 in 2004 (and one of the worst the conference has seen in quite a while) was carrying that many future pro's, that must be so.

Boise - Thanks for John Tate - that was who I was thinking about.

To all -

This recruiting season is gonna turn REAL interesting if we miss out on Moore too. That only leaves Heard, Enger, Trufant and Locker as the In-state recruits we're considering. Casey Locker has an offer but has not committed - kinda strange.

I do think Nolan Washington from Kennedy HS will be offered before long, but stil.

As I said before - lots of out-of-state kids. We HAVE to win this season or this recruiting class could be in a lot of trouble.

That leaves us in EXACTLY the same situation we are in this year - with Ty's first recruiting class starting so late in the year, it was a poor class and there are only 6 players left on the team and virtually NO senior leadership and a bunch of freshmen being counted on. Trouble most of the time.

I agree RedDawg. I've made a couple of posts about how good I thought Ikehara is, and how happy I am that we got him. Most didn't seem to notice, or maybe they just haven't figured out who he is yet. At any rate, I'm glad the coaches gave him a shout - out, and he got a little ink here on the blog. People will be really happy with him in the future. Great kid also.

The ND fans that still harbor pure hate for Ty do so b/c they have delusions of grandeur about their program and need a scape goat for being a mediocre team. But they were mediocre before Ty and continue to be under Weis. They haven't had a top 10 finish in the coach's poll (or even won a bowl game) since 1993.

Not to say that criticism (or even his firing) wasn't fair, but to act like Ty bears any greater responsibility than Bob Davie or Charlie Weis for ND's mediocrity is dishonest.

From Wikipedia-
Because of the size and design of Husky Stadium (almost 70% of the seats are located between the end zones), it is considered one of the loudest college football stadiums in the nation.[5] [6] At times, it's nearly impossible to hear oneself even think, getting so loud that it inflicts pain because it is actually possible to feel the noise.[7] During televised games, it has been known to become so loud that the cameras shake.[8] During a September 1992 game against the Nebraska Cornhuskers, ESPN measured the crowd noise at 135 decibels--well above the threshold of pain.[9]

I don't know another stadium like it," Lane Hoss said. "I know other teams are proud of their stadiums too, but there's not one like coming here."[10]

that the first wave originated in Seattle at the University of Washington's Husky Stadium on October 31, 1981,[3][4] at the prompting of Robb Weller (later Entertainment Tonight co-host, and then a television producer). Weller, a Washington graduate, was the guest yell-king during the Huskies' homecoming football game against the Stanford University Cardinal (led by junior quarterback John Elway)Longtime UW band director Bill Bissell also claimed co-creator credit with Weller, suggesting that the wave was devised by both of them prior to the game. The following week, the wave appeared at Seattle Seahawks professional football games in the Kingdome and has been a staple of Seattle sports ever since.

Four straight losing seasons and really, other than 2000, nothing to write home about for a decade or so. Heck, we've never even defeated ND in football (though I think that will chnage this year). Also, based on HFNY descrription it appears Mr. Intergity was, in fact, dealing behind his employers back.

Bainbridge - I agree that a lot of Huskies suffer from the same affliction. Although it's really been delusions of being average over the last few years. That said, UW fans should expect success. There's no reason the old status quo of a Rose Bowl or two every decade shouldn't come back. The UW has a huge fan and alumni base, great tradition, and is the biggest and best university within 900 miles. Most of all, UW is a football school. Always has, always will be.
