A few of the questions confronting the UW football team this spring is the topic of my story in today's paper.
And here's one extra that didn't make the newspaper version:
Can QB Jake Locker add a passing game to his running game?
Washington finished ninth in the Pacific-10 Conference in passing offense last season, and 93rd nationally. Not all of it was Locker's fault. His receivers weren't burners, and they dropped far too many passes.
However, Locker also threw too many passes that no one could have caught.
In his second season, he has to be better.
He certainly has the physical tools to be terrific on short, medium and long routes. And this season's offensive line should provide enough time for his reads and enough space for him to step into his throws.
And while we're on the topic of questions, feel free to use the Comments section below to suggest any questions you'd like me to ask of Coach Willingham or any of the players this spring, or of any players or topics you think I should cover. I always like knowing what you like reading about.
