Coach Tyrone Willingham sent a first-day message that he won't slow down for those Huskies who weren't ready to hit the ground running.
When his team took the field for the first time Sunday afternoon, presumed starters such as offensive tackle Ben Ossai, guard Morgan Rosborough and linebacker E.J. Savannah were replaced by Cody Habben, Matt Sedillo and Chris Stevens respectively.
At least for now, Willingham was vague about his reasons.
"There was some things that were not completed prior to coming into camp, so we made some adjustments and we'll stick with those adjustments until some things are rectified," he said. "At the appropriate time I'll talk about those things. ... I think you could say we're serious about what we're doing."
Never miss a local story.
The issue may -- or may not -- have involved conditioning goals. However, Willingham did say that this team's overall running was the best since he arrived three seasons ago.
