Husky Football Blog

The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

Quick Cal recap

Reporting and writing duties for the paper kept me away from here until now, and getting out of Berkeley means I don’t have much time to blog until later.
But here are a few quick thoughts and notes:
— Louis Rankin may be UW’s starting tailback now as Kenny James watched the second half in street clothes and on crutches with his foot in a boot after spraining his ankle in the first quarter. Washington coach Tyrone Willingham, however, said X-rays showed no break. The only other tailback on the roster is senior Shelton Sampson, who doesn’t have a carry this season. But UW coaches said they never considered going with someone other than Rankin. Offensive coordinator Tim Lappano did, however, express some unhappiness with Rankin’s running in short-yardage situations, with Rankin admitting that he needed to just hit the hole harder and not try to bounce some of those runs outside.
— So much for all the Jake Locker talk. Carl Bonnell took every snap, and Locker remains eligible to redshirt. However, Locker was all but confirmed as the backup for the game when he ran the second team during warm-up drills. Asked if Locker would have been the backup if a sub for Bonnell had been needed, Willingham said “most likely” he would have gone in that direction. But with just four games remaining, and Locker still having not played, UW coaches will likely again have to make a decision next Saturday when the Huskies entertain Arizona State.
— There appeared to be no other new serious injuries other than the one to James.
— UW defensive coordinator Kent Baer said he was happy with the new-look defense that featured Brandon Ala at DE for Greyson Gunheim, Dashon Goldson for at CB Matt Fountaine and Jordan Reffett at DT for Donny Mateaki. Also, Donald Butler played significantly at MLB for Tahj Bomar. Baer said he was just “trying to get the best players on the field.”
— I’ll look through comments and answer your questions later.
