The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

And away we go

Here at UW for the season-opening media day, which coincides with the first practice of the season.
Wanted to pass along my story for today on 10 questions facing the Huskies as practice begins.
I mentioned in the story that this is the first time Tyrone Willingham will have more of his recruits on the team than from the previous two coaches — Keith Gilbertson and Rick Neuheisel.
Here’s the breakdown based on the roster in the media guide:
Willingham, 49
Gilbertson, 19
Neuheisel, 10
That adds up to 78, which is eight below the number of 85 that is allowed — but I also didn’t include WRs Anthony Boyles and Devin Aguilar, whose eligibility for this season remains unclear.
Few teams are at the maximum of 85 for long due to injuries, transfers, ineligibility, etc. But beginning a year at 78 is a little on the short side, especially considering three are kickers. EDIT: I changed this from an earlier post to correct the number to 78 after reviewing the new roster.
That’s not to start the year on a negative note, just to point out that this team still has some significant depth issues at a number of positions.
Media day begins around noon, so we’ll try to have some notes from that up within an hour or so. Practice is at 4:30 and will run 90 minutes or so, and we’ll put up a report on that shortly afterward as well.
MORE ON DAILEY: I’m blatantly stealing this link on Terrance Dailey’s commitment from the Vacaville Reporter from 78pup on the earlier post, but wanted to move it here to give it better play.
As BoiseTruth pointed out, the last line is interesting with Dailey saying he’s basically been told he will start as a freshman if he puts in the right work in the weight room. Obviously a lot can change with the RB spot this year with all the new guys coming in.
ONE MORE NOTE, Syracuse’s top tight end has decided to quit the team.
