Video — UW defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox

Tuesday also is the day when UW defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox talks to the media, and among the topics were facing Cal’s offense, the play of Sean Parker and what the Huskies did well against Oregon State.

Wilcox, if you’ve forgotten, got his first full-time head coaching job at Cal in 2003 and stayed there through the 2005 season as linebackers coach.

Asked if Cal does much different offensively now than it did then, he said: “Coach (Jeff) Tedford is an excellent offensive coach, so you see a variety of things, they are very game-plan oriented. They are going to find ways to get their best players the ball. It’s not one of those offenses where you know exactly how they are going to line up or what plays they are going to run out of each formation. They are not like that at all. They are very multiple and have a lot of different weapons in the run and pass game and they do a good job of trying to isolate those guys and get ’em the ball out in space where they can make some plays.”

Asked about trying to duplicate the success the UW defense has had at home on the road, he laughed and said: “We’ve got to play better. The road…you’ve seen Hoosiers, right? When they measure the hoop? The same thing…we’ve got to execute better. It’s not the road, it’s not the plane ride. We’ve got to execute better.”

Of what UW has done well in the games where it has played better, Wilcox said: “It’s execution, it’s confidence in your technique, playing within the defense – all those things. There’s not one single thing, it’s a cumulative effect of different things, different factors.”
