The Huskies practiced in full pads this morning.
Senior receiver Corey Williams (pictured) wore the honorary gold jersey again, for the third straight practice. He could hang onto it another day as an apparently amazing diving catch on a long ball that seemed to amaze even Williams.
"The ball was overthrown," he said. "When I seen it I knew it was overthrown, but I though, 'Man, I'm just going to go get it.' That's all I said in my head: 'Just go 100 percent and go get it.' I threw out my arms and the ball stuck right in my hand. I don't even know how to explain it. It was a good catch, though. I just wasn't going to let it hit the ground."
The catch highlighted what sounds like an otherwise sluggish practice.
"We were sleep-walking a little bit," offensive coordinator Tim Lappano said. "We had great practices in my opinon until this morning. We didn't have (Sunday) off, we did some things, but we didn't play football and when you come out the next day and you haven't palyed football in a day you see it a little bit. Coach Willingham warned us that might happen. It wasn't a poor practice, but it wasn't as good. There have been some really good practices the past couple of days. Really good practices. We didn't quite get as much done as we needed to this morning."
Then there will be a second practice at 4 p.m., but with no briefing to follow.
