A few more Monday notes

A few more notes and quotes from today:
Tyrone Willingham on the team’s third-quarter troubles: “I know everybody is trying to pinpoint the reasons, but please understand you are not searching any harder than I am.”
— Willingham on his team’s mental state this week: “They’ll be fine. This is an important game for anyone that is a Husky. I think our guys understand that.”
— Willingham on the role of Chris Stevens’ who now is third-team at weakside linebacker behind Mason Foster and walk-on Josh Gage.”It will be a lot on special teams and there will be some situations where he will be one of our rush guys.”
— Willingham said the backup running back rotation is still in flux despite the fact that J.R. Hasty is now listed No. 2 behind Louis Rankin. “I don’t know if we’ve settled on it yet. I think it will eventually iron itself out as to who and what the situation should be.”
— Asked what he thinks is the most improved position on the team this season, Willingham said “I would say our special teams has been the area that has been the most improved. I thought last week was pretty solid in the special teams. We didn’t have many coverage breakdowns and I thought Jared Ballman played reasonably well. I think that area was pretty solid.” He also said he liked the returning of Rankin and Anthony Russo.
— Willingham on the play of Jake Locker: “I think in certain areas there has been improvement. I think he has continued to be more confident about his play and what we can accomplish. Now we have to get all the parts to execute, Jake included.”
— Asked about opponents seeming to take Locker’s running away, Willingham said: “We do what we did in the first half, that is have the running game come from other places.”
