Willingham says running game not that good

I caught most of the Tyrone Willingham show tonight and I didn’t hear a whole lot really newsworthy. There weren’t any calls, and I don’t know the exact reason — maybe there weren’t any, I don’t know — why so I won’t speculate.
What might have been the most interesting comment to me was Willingham’s assessment of the running game. UW rushed for a season-high 224 yards. But the caveat is that WSU has been one of the worst run defense teams in recent memory, having allowed 266.5 per game previous to the Apple Cup.
Willingham said he wasn’t all that impressed by UW’s running game, saying “we didn’t rush the ball well at all.”
He also said that “the number of missed assignments would shock you.”
UW had a new O-line for the game with Skyler Fancher getting his first start at RT with Ben Ossai out with a concussion so maybe that had something to do with it.
