Huskies reliving Saturday?

The Huskies have talked a lot since Saturday about moving on past the events of the USC game.
But UW coach Tyrone Willingham has also talked about learning from what happened in the final moments of that game. So maybe that’s what he had in mind for Wednesday’s practice.
During the 25 minutes that reporters were allowed to watch Wednesday, the scoreboard read Visitors 26, Huskies 20, with 1:34 left in the game and the ball at the 20-yard-line.
That’s the same scenario that greeted UW when it took the field for the final drive of the USC game. (The Trojans kicked off with 1:34 left after scoring to go ahead 26-20).
The Huskies often practice two-minute drills, so maybe that’s what they were planning on doing.
During the time reporters could watch, the Huskies spent about five minutes running the No. 1 offense against the scout team defense and Isaiah Stanback took most of the snaps at QB, indicating that his hop pointer won’t limit him in any way Saturday. Carl Bonnell took the rest.
The only players in red were safety Jason Wells (more on him in the post below) and backup linebacker Kyle Trew (unknown injury). Dashon Goldson was not in red. Linebacker E.J. Savannah also is not in red any longer though he is wearing a rather big club on his hand to protect his thumb.
Wells did not appear to be taking part in any drills.
Today was the day defensive coaches are available to the media and one of the more interesting comments came from defensive coordinator Kent Baer, when asked a question about working against Jake Locker on the scout team.
Baer called Locker a redshirt — the first official acknowledgement that that is what he is this year though it’s obviously been unofficial for a while — then said “he just loves football. He has such a burning desire to play and he has such great tools. But he just loves football and it’s fun to be around guys like that. It’s fun to see.”
