Taking a look at Florida

It’s common for football coaches during the off-season to visit with other coaching staffs around the country, and the Huskies were no different.
UW offensive coaches recently visited Florida where they exchanged ideas on the spread offense with coaches there.
“We just studied some things,” UW offensive coordinator Tim Lappano said today. “We went down there and exchanged some ideas with coach (Urban) Meyer for a couple days. It was good.”
Lappano said he was also able to study Florida QB Tim Tebow, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, and that he thinks Jake Locker is in the same class.
“He’s right there, believe me,” Lappano said, comparing Locker to Tebow. “He’s right there. He’s not far away.”
UW coaches also visited Missouri, apparently looking primarily at the defense of the Tigers, which improved drastically last season after Missouri coaches simplified the scheme a bit. Missouri runs a 4-3, and indications are that at the moment the Huskies are likely to stick with a 4-3 base while sprinkling in some 3-4 looks from time to time. UW’s depth chart released today shows a 4-3 defense and coaches didn’t mention lineups using a 3-4 in conversations with media today.
