Savannah out

Coach Tyrone Willingham announced at his regular Monday news conference today that linebacker E.J. Savannah is likely out this week with a broken thumb suffered Saturday. Willingham said a more conclusive determination will be made later in the week.
That was about it for the personnel news. Willingham said center Juan Garcia played through some groin problems and Garcia also mentioned after the game struggling with cramps. But he should be good to go.
Also, linebacker Dan Howell is expected to return to practice tomorrow.
And Willingham said Dashon Goldson’s status is uncertain this week. He didn’t play Saturday as coaches decided to hold him out to see if it would help his ankle recover.
As might be expected, the mood was upbeat after UW’s most significant win since 2003. Willingham said it was most significant that “they stayed to the finish and found a way to win at the end. That’s an important sign for any program when you can find a way to do that.”
Willingham said the shift in having defensive coordinator Kent Baer work from the pressbox and secondary coach J.D. Williams from the field is likely to continue. Baer had never coached a game as defensive coordinator from the press box. Willingham said the two coaches came up with the idea and that Willingham approved it. Asked what he prefers, Willingham said, “whatever wins.”
Asked at one point if the team had any goals for the Pac-10 Conference, Willingham said “win the conference.” Asked if he had talked about that with his players, Willingham said simply “yes.”
That’s probably something that will get a lot of play in some quarters. But I also don’t know what else his goal would be.
Also, as some of you have pointed out, I made an error in my story today saying this will be the fourth straight year UW and UCLA have met in the Pac-10 opener. UW obviously lost to Cal for its conference opener last season. It is the fourth straight year for UCLA.
