Quick Willingham notes

Nothing of huge note from our daily meeting with Tyrone Willingham today.
He said WR Quintin Daniels is out 2-3 weeks with a knee sprain suffered against ASU but that the rest of the team is in good health.
He said the team was in pull pads Tuesday as the best way to learn to defend Oregon’s offense, specifically the way the Ducks go about blocking. Oregon uses the cut block more than most other teams. “I’d say that would be very accurate,” Willingham said.
Willingham said he thought Tuesday’s practice went well and that he thinks the mood of the team is fine. He wouldn’t say the team is handling all of this well since he said “well” is winning games on Saturday.
But asked about Greyson Gunheim’s comments earlier today that there is a little bit of finger-pointing going on, Willingham said he didn’t see it as that but that “I think it would be called frustration.” He added that “I don’t see it bubbling up.”
Willingham, in response to a question, said the team’s typical halftime scenario is for him to talk to the players first as a general overview of the first half and what needs to happen in the second, then to meet with the coordinators and other coaches on more specifics, then to meet with the team again to give them, as he called it, “their marching orders.”
He didn’t go into real detail and I didn’t get the sense it’s much different than what any other team does.
And asked what worries him most about Oregon’s offense, he said “speed,” and the fact that the Ducks have a lot of speed throughout the lineup and like to get their players with the ball in the open-field.
