The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

Wednesday update

UW coach Tyrone Willingham met with the media here today before practice.
No real big news but Willingham did confirm that Jake Locker will start at quarterback though he left open the possibility that Carl Bonnell could play a series or two.
“He may,” Willlingham said. “We have not settled on all those things right now.”
As for Locker, Willingham said he “moved around very well, very much like his old self” during practice on Tuesday, evidently eliminating any last reservations about giving him the start.
Unlike his Monday press conference, Willingham said a simple “yes” today when asked if Locker will start.
Willingham was more pessimistic about the return of LB Donald Butler saying that it is unlikely that he will be able to play this week.
However, he said CB Byron Davenport looked good and should be able to return to his starting role Saturday.
Willingham also said WR Marcel Reece has been bothered by a foot injury of late — Reece appeared to be hobbling during practice Tuesday —- but that it’s nothing that will keep him out of the game as he’s played with it the last week or so, evidently.
Willingham also talked a little bit about the Friday luncheon where both teams will be present to celebrate the 100th playing of the rivalry. Willingham said this is a unique year and doesn’t anticipate such an event happening every season. He said he knows some of his players may have mixed feelings about having to mingle with the opponent the day before the game but that the specialness of this anniversary makes it worth doing.
Willingham also said he plans to attend the Skyline-Franklin Pierce playoff game Saturday morning at 9 at the Tacoma Dome. Willingham’s son plays for Skyline. He said “the schedule seems to work out” that he can attend that game to watch his son and get back in time to handle duties preparing the Huskies for the Apple Cup, which starts at 4 p.m.
