Just before noon as I write this, the Huskies are in Husky Stadium wearing shorts and shoulder pads, concluding fall camp for another season.
In the 25 minutes open to media, three players seemed to be missing: safety Jason Wells, tight end Michael Gottlieb and punter Jared Ballman. Wells has been slowed by a knee injury all camp, but the other two were unexplained for now.
Loud music -- mostly country -- was blaring from speakers, as the coaches apparently tried to simulate the noise the team will experience one week from today when the Huskies open the regular season at Oregon's Autzen Stadium.
The Huskies are off tomorrow and will return to the field for game-week preparations on Monday.
Monday also will bring the team's annual kickoff luncheon.
(Final note: Acting athletic director Scott Woodward took in practice, and repeated his hunch -- and he says it remains just a hunch -- that a permanent athletic director could be announced next week.)
