COMMENTS: The big questions remain at left tackle, cornerback and both kicking spots. But I think there will be a lot of rotating at the tackle and cornerback spots — as well as both the MLB and WLB spots that also remain in some contention based in part on Butler’s health.
Tight end also, obviously, remains wide open. But that’s another spot where all of the players are likely to see significant time. Who actually starts come Friday at some of those positions may be based as much on what play the team runs first — or what defense it needs to be in — as anything else. Same holds true at receiver — if UW goes with three wides on its first play, then I figure Reece, Williams and Russo all go down as starters.
Still, getting the official starting designation is certainly meaningful to the players involved and also an indicator of who the coaches think has done the best job so far at those spots.
The most meaningful designantions this week could be the two kicking spots, as those are positions where rotating is less likely, though who knows with how open these positions appear to be. I also wouldn’t be surprise if we don’t get definitive word on those spots until the team is in Syracuse, or even gameday.
Rosters are expanded for non-conference away games and Tyrone Willingham said he expects to take 66-70 players, which means all of the kickers could make the trip (as well as some true frosh who may not necessarily be expected to play).
LOCKER RANKED No. 57: I also found this interesting story from Orlando Sentinel ranking every quarterback in Division-I football.
Locker’s rated 57, which isn’t necessarily surprising considering that he has yet to play. I was kind of surprised Oregon State’s QB duo was ranked ahead of him, however, and really surprised to see Arizona’s Willie Tuitama ranked No. 27. I also think Tuitama’s a lot better than he has shown to date — and avid readers of this space know I think Arizona has a chance to be really good this season — but that seems a little high at the moment.
