Tuesday A.M. potpourri

A few quick items for Tuesday morning:
First is our story today updating the situation on the offensive line. As I wrote the other day, I think the longer this goes on, the more likely it is that some of these guys play significant, if not starting, roles this season.
One thing that didn’t make it in the story (cut for space reasons) was this quote from UW coach Tyrone Willingham talking about why he was amenable to making some changes up front in the first place:
“I do not believe we had an all-conference linemen last year,” Willingham said. “So we have to have everybody on the line perform at a much higher level. Our expectations as players and as coaches is much higher than what we had last year.”
Also here today is our daily camp glance. Cut out of this story (guess I have to start writing shorter) was this quote from Jake Locker about the milk drinking:
“I’m really enjoying it,” Locker said. “Coach says it puts stuff back into our bodies that we need. It seems to be working.”
LEADING OFF OUR ALUMNI REPORT is this story from the San Francisco Chronicle that includes some glowing mention of Dashon Goldson’s play in last night’s 49ers game. Paraphrasing, the story details a couple of Goldson’s plays and said they show why he will “be a keeper” come the regular season.
Isaiah Stanback is starting to impress in Dallas, where he downed a punt at the 1-yard line and also caught a TD pass in practice Monday.
— Big day for Stanley Daniels Monday as he was signed by the New York Jets, then got in a brief scuffle during practice.
— He’s not quite an alum, and a lot of you won’t care about Craig Chambers I realize, but this story indicates you may not hear much about him anytime soon, either, as he is apparently battling some shoulder problems with kind of a mysterious quote from head coach Bobby Hauck (the former UW assistant) saying that Chambers is “working through some medical stuff, too.” Not sure if those are one in the same or not.
— Finally, this has nothing to do with alumni, but is more evidence of UW’s tough schedule this season. ESPN’s first Heisman Watch is out and the Huskies will face four of the top eight on the list.
