Day 2 of Huskies fall camp kicks off again at 10 a.m., with newcomers then practicing again at 4 o’clock today. On Wednesday, the full squad will come together for the first time in the morning.

Good read from our Larry Stone on the start of the Chris Petersen era. A snippet:

There are subtle but definite signs the players are buying into this post-Sark reality. Certainly, they are learning the Petersen idiosyncrasies.

They know how meaningful it is when Petersen sounds his air horn, used to signify, and glorify, turnovers.

They know that to Petersen and his staff, it’s crucial to build camaraderie off the field, which they firmly believe will lead to a cohesive unit on it.

“The last couple of years, we always talked about how close we grew, but I feel it’s emphasized each and every day,” linebacker John Timu said. “I feel we’re much closer. We know about the guys that just came in (freshmen); we know their full names, we know about their families.

“There’s no cliques on this team anymore. There’s not guys relying on their own position group. Guys talk to each other now, which is a big difference we see. That’s good. It kind of goes on the field as far as trusting each other when we play next to each other.”
