Fast start critical

We’re at the stadium, where it’s overcast and 50-something degrees just like everywhere else in the Seattle area.
Among the keys for UW today, I think, is getting off to a fast start.
Sounds obvious, but in a home game against a reeling opponent, a quick start could make it an easy day. But let the Beavers stay in the game, and this could turn dicey.
And starts have been a UW problem all season. The opponent has scored on its first drive four times this year — San Jose State, Fresno State, UCLA and USC. And UW has been outscored 40-24 in the first quarter this year.
UW LB Scott White talked this week of the team possibly changing its pre-game routine in an attempt to shake things up. Like everyone else, he has no real idea why the team starts slow.
Tyrone Willingham didn’t elaborate on that when asked this week so we’ll have to wait and see if the Huskies have done anything to try to get off to faster starts.
— Also, Jason Wells won’t be in uniform today with Dashon Goldson starting in his place.
— Expected attendance today will be in the 61,000 range. That was the number of tickets sold ahead of time and we’ll see if there is much of a walk-up.
Check back throughout the game and afterward for more.
