Lappano on KJR

UW offensive coordinator Tim Lappano was just on KJR-AM and I’ll post a few highlights:
— First off, he was asked about his potential interest in the WSU job and he didn’t deny it, saying “I’m not even going there right now.” Asked another question about it, he said “I do want to be a head coach somewhere. We’ll see what happens when the season is over.” Said the team has had two good practices this week and seems ready for the challenge.
— Said that while he thinks Hawaii’s defense is better than one might think given all the pub the offense gets, “I think we can move the ball on them.” Said the Hawaii defense “runs from sidelind to sideline probably as good as anybody we’ve played. They play with a lot of passion.”
— Said he knows some people think UW was crazy to schedule the game but said he told his players “I’m glad we’re playing it. We have a chance to to lose this taste we’ve got in our mouths.”
— Reiterated what he told us yesterday that Jake Locker needs to work on his touch over the off-season, saying that he needs to “get on top of his throws. When the ball sails on him that’s because he’s not getting over the top of his throws and it’s a low release. … Hopefully in the fall you will see a lot better pure passer and that’s going to happen with him. Sometimes I think we forget he’s 19 years old. … He’s not a finished product but he’s not that far away and when he is, look out.”
— Said that Carl Bonnell “took quite a few snaps” in practice today and that there is a good chance he will get a series or two in the game. Asked where Locker would be then he said “standing right next to me signaling the play in.”
— Said he wasn’t happy with the overall offensive performance last week and that “we’ve got to play more aggressive and physical everywhre.”
