The Huskies take the field at 4:30. However, the opening day program began with a question-and-answer session between the media and coach Tyrone Willingham. There was no major or even unexpected news coming from that. Still, there were several items of interest, and I'll try to blog those over the next few hours.
Meanwhile, here is Willingham's opening statement:
"It's exciting to be back. Your focus now that we're back is to really take an assessment of where the team is. You're always hopefully that great things took place, and I'm quite sure that there were some great workouts, some great training, some great conditioning that took place on individual workouts. And now you want to see how that all fits in collectively, how it all fits together. So, that's what we start doing today, and it's exciting to be at that point."
