A few more notes

— Talked to Anthony Boyles again briefly tonight and he said his test score won’t be in until tomorrow (Friday) or Monday, so he still doesn’t know anything.
— UW coach Tyrone Willingham mentioned today that a flu bug was going through the team a little bit with Vonzell McDowell missing practice Wednesday and backup center Matt Sedillo out today (Thursday).
— Willingham was asked today why Ryan Bush left the team and said he knew but didn’t want to get into it publically. But hard to figure that playing time wasn’t the major factor.
— The team will take Friday and Saturday off before returning on Sunday to resume a normal game-week preparation for Arizona State.
— Asked today which young players had impressed him during the bye week, Willingham mentioned safety Nate Williams and cornerback Marquis Persley.
— Willingham also said that cornerback Byron Davenport had begun to really assert himself on the field while continuing to recover from his hamstring injury, though he said Davenport still isn’t 100 percent. “He’s still kind of working his way there,” Willingham said. “The thing that is going to hold him back there is just the feat of letting go. So when you have that kind of sensitivity about cutting that thing loose because you are not sure it make take even a longer time to work through that.”
— With Bush leaving, Willingham said the team will have to work someone else in as a center. The backups to Juan Garcia are Sedillo and walk-on Gregory Christine, who usually doesn’t travel. So Willingham said one of the linemen in the two-deep will also have to work some at center to get some experience if needed to play.
— Here’s the full quote on what he said when asked how Jordan Murchison looked: “Not bad. He seemed to report in decent condition, seemed to work pretty well, I thought. But there’s still a lot of learning that has to take place to get back up to speed.”
