Lappano: Surprises in store

UW offensive coordinator makes a weekly appearance Thursday night on KJR-AM with Elise and Ian, which is about the last public word from a Washington coach since there is never any access on Friday’s.
I finally got around to listening to it on-line — here’s where you can find it — and there’s some interesting stuff.
In particular, Lappano said that “there are going to be some surprises in our running game and we feel confident we can run the football [against Stanford].”
Lappano said he didn’t want to share what those surprises will be, but indicated they could involve personnel.
“There will be some surprises in there, might be a couple in there in our running-back positon, the way we run it, so it should be fun,” he said.
Maybe that means more Johnie Kirton or Shelton Sampson, or maybe some more running by some of the fullbacks, such as Mark Palaita or Paul Homer.
Lappano also again defended quarterback Carl Bonnell. “I still think Carl is playing well enough for us to win so we have to help him,” he said.
He called last week’s 138-yard outing against Oregon “unacceptable” and said that “I’ll take the blame on that.”
And he added of this week, “We’ve probably had the best three practices we’ve had all year.”
