Morning kick-off: camps around the conference are rolling

Justin Glenn talk with Mike Gastineau and Elise Woodward, who were broadcasting live at Husky practice. Glenn, who might be one of the smartest most eloquent interviews on the team, had some frank things to say about the defense under the previous regime and the coaching style.

This quote was interesting: "They are trying to teach it. Not making people feel like, 'oh I can't mess up, and if I do, they are going to yell at me.' They are more relaxed and do it the next time and lets fix it."

and later ...

"It helps when the coach isn't just going to throw a bunch of F bombs at you."
