We just got our weekly Monday lunch meeting with Coach Willingham and a few of the Huskies.
The biggest news was Willingham saying that he is "leaning toward" having safety Jason Wells redshirt this season while his knee healts.
The news was better for tight end Michael Gottlieb, who sat out the opener at Oregon due to a hamstring injury. Willingham said that Gottlieb is "probable" for the Brigham Young game at Husky Stadium on Saturday.
The previously injured Jake Locker (hamstring) and Juan Garcia (foot) apparently game through the game fine. However, Locker said that he "didn't feel as fast as I normally am."
Never miss a local story.
I'll go through my notes and probably add a few items this afternoon.
Until then, however, the general bottom line seemed to be a feeling of disappointment at how the team played in Oregon, but with no implication of any discouragement that should make their load any heavier for BYU. Willingham expressed believe in the normal coaches' truism that any team's greatest improvement usually appears between the first and second games.
