Here is my Huskies story for today, on the UW running game.
And speaking of today, this is the say that life changes for the Huskies as classes finally begin.
A few reactions from the start of this week:
*Senior tight end Michael Gottlieb: "It definitely doesn't make it easier, but you just kind of roll with the punches. … We're still student-athletes, so it's not a problem."
*Senior cornerback Mesphin Forrester: "I graduated in June, so … I have a couple of classes, but it's not that bad. For the freshmen, the first couple of weeks is kind of tough because you have to find your classes and it's totally different from high school. But (coach Tyrone Willingham) sets up a plan and if you follow it you'll be all right."
*True freshman receiver Jermaine Kearse: "We've played three games before school starts, so that's always good to get the focus on football and nothing but it. … They do their best to prepare us for school and manage our time with school work and football."
And, of course, my favorite -- everyone's favorite -- from sophomore linebacker Mason Foster on Monday: "Oh, man, yeah, I forgot about that. I like school. It's cool. UW is a beautiful campus, but it just kind of changes up your schedule, so you have to focus and get your work done or you're going to be in trouble. It's cool though."
