Ty Willingham said he heard that Boise State tailback Ian Johnson had said Husky Stadium wasn't especially loud on Saturday. Willingham called the comment "kind of an affront to our fans," who he no doubt hopes will be even louder Saturday when No. 10 Ohio State visits. (By the way, BSU quarterback Taylor Tharp seemed more impressed, attributing part of his team's offensive problems to crowd noise.)
(Also by the way, the ticket situation for the Ohio State game remains similar to the Boise game. A couple of thousand remain, but tickets are almost certain to remain availaible on game day.)
Otherwise, there wasn't much new from the one Willingham availability we had today. He said the injured players are "moving forward," but didn't give any indication if any will be miss the Buckeyes' game. However, he did say of fullback Luke Kravitz, "we're hoping he's day to day rather than week to week," which is probably what passes these days for an upgraded condition.
Willingham once again praised the Ohio State defense, singling out the linebackers as maybe the most physical his team will see until the USC game … two weekends ahead.
Meanwhile, UW's sports information office announced that the Marcel Reece's 58-yard touchdown reception from Saturday's game is up for the Pontiac Game Changing Moment for week two of the NCAA Season. The winning university each week earns a $5,000 contribution from Pontiac to their general scholarship fund. Additionally, the winning play will be nominated for the "Pontiac Game Changing Performance of the Year" and the chance to win a $100,000 General Scholarship from Pontiac.
