Quarterbacks, cornerbacks and more

As you might imagine, Isaiah Stanback was the focus of much of Tyrone Willingham’s regular Monday meeting with the media.
Willingham again said Stanback will be the starter and that there would be no plans ahead of time to insert Carl Bonnell.
Asked what Stanback did wrong, Willingham said, “We just didn’t execute.”’ He later elaborated on that statement, some of which I’m saving for later. But in general, he didn’t think Stanback played well in either half or in any department.
Stanback, meanwhile, said he was “second guessing” himself too much during the game. He said he didn’t think Oklahoma defended him much differently than San Jose State did but that he just played more poorly.
I think you can argue the first part of that statement — no question OU was faster, which limited some of Stanback’s running — but it’s typical of Stanback to put the onus on himself.
As for cornerbacks, the Huskies know they need improved play there. But there aren’t many options and Willingham said he felt the starters — Matt Fountaine and Roy Lewis — continue to do some good things.
UW hopes that Jordan Murchison will be back this week but there are no guarantees. And there doesn’t appear to be any help forthcoming anywhere else. UW does have some young players there — namely, Matt Mosley — but Willingham indicated they won’t be playing anytime soon.
He said he’s always felt that the two positions you don’t want to play a player too soon are quarterbacks and cornerbacks (interesting, as well, as to what that may mean for Jake Locker should it ever get to that point).
Willingham said again there were no new injuries. And he confirmed that Jordan White-Frisbee will move to offense, likely tackle. Since JWF has already redshirted, he will begin practicing there immediately and could conceivably move up the depth chart quickly.
