Video: Chris Petersen curious how Huskies will respond in season opener

[do action="brightcove-video" videoid="3751762852001"/]

Washington coach Chris Petersen met with the media one last time before Saturday’s opener at Hawaii.

The Huskies leave noon Friday from Seattle and fly to Honolulu. Petersen said he plans to take the players to Pearl Harbor on Friday.

“I think that  type of stuff is very important to us,” he said. “If we were going to back to Washington D.C. I would try to get enough time to go see some war memorials and those types of things. I think is really important for these kids to hear about it, learn about and then see it (to) have it make a little more sense in their mind.”

When asked about Saturday’s game, Petersen said: “I am curious. I think there’s some guys that have played a lot of football and we have some guys that haven’t played a lot of football – as a team, how are we going to respond? … I’m excited and curious to see how they respond.”

On Jeff Lindquist, the sophomore quarterback named the starter for the opener, Petersen said: “He’s always the same and same in a positive optimistic way whether he makes a bad play. He wants to hear us. He still wants to be coached.”
