Afternoon notes

Really not much came out of Tyrone Willingham’s meeting with the media today.
He said there are no significant new injuries, so everyone who is expected to play should be able to play.
He also didn’t divulge anything regarding the backup running back spot other than to say that only four RBs are likely to make the trip, the same four that have made every trip to date.
ON TRYON: After a comment on the previous thread that I misinterpred what ASU cornerback Justin Tryon said, I listened to it again.
I don’t think I did. But I did slightly edit the other post after a review of the interview again.
Softy asked Tryon about UW’s offense and Tryon concluded by saying that “the biggest concern is their quarterback” and that “he’s the fastest quarterback I’ve seen on film. Like, this guy is fast. So we have to contain him in the box and each play we’ve got to hit him, hit him every play. After that it will be an easy win, hopefully.”
Softy then said “if you take Locker out of the game and hit him, it will be an easy win?”
Tryon said “it’s an easy win at that point. He is their whole offense. He makes things happen out of nothing.”
So Tryon did say without prompting that they have to hit Locker every play, though it was Softy who added the part about “taking” him out of the game. Guess you could argue that the first doesn’t necessarily mean the second, but I think it’s pretty much all the same meaning.
As others have commented, this isn’t necessarily earth-shattering. It’s obvious every team that plays UW is thinking the same thing, and Locker and the Huskies know that. But it is interesting that an opposing player would say it so publicly on a radio station in that team’s city two days before the game.
