Monday press conference notes

Sorry for the delay but had some connection problems and a prior commitment that kept me away from this for a while.
Not that there was a lot of real news emanating from today’s press conference.
I’ve written before that Tyrone Willingham is a real “stay-the-course” type of coach, so while he admits he’s baffled as to what is causing some of UW’s problems, the third-quarter specifically, he remains confident in the big picture of what the Huskies are doing. So this mostly felt like a regular Monday with him.
There wasn’t quite the normal player turnout, however, and few of the team’s regulars were there other than Jake Locker, who only talks to the media on Mondays and game days, so it was harder to get a real accurate sense of the mood of the team.
Locker said he thought everyone was still confident about the rest of the season.
The only starter who was there, defensive end Daniel Te’o-Nesheim, said the same thing.
Asked the mood of the team, Te’o-Nesheim said “optimistic. We just have to start winning games again. Man, jeez, four games is tough. But nothing you can do but try to win the next one. I nobody is down in the dumps. I haven’t seen anybody crying in the locker room. After the game it always feels bad if you lose but we have a big opportunity (this week) so this could be a great game for us.”
I’ll try to put some more comments up later.
As for some notes:
— Willingham said WR Quintin Daniels could be out for an “extended” period with the knee injury suffered Saturday. But everyone else is apparently fine.
— The players of the week were running back Louis Rankin (offense), defensive end Greyson Gunheim (defense) and punter Jared Ballman (special teams). The scout team players of the week were defensive tackle Jovon O’Connor (defense), quarterback Ronnie Fouch (offense) and walk-on linebacker Brandon Huppert (special teams).
