Kill said at Tuesday's news conference that he had 101 e-mails within three hours of the game and, just like the week before, he did his best to try to respond to each one.
"Some people were telling me how to coach and all that stuff, but I don't worry too much about that," Kill said. "If I e-mailed everybody that told me I didn't know how to coach or something, I'd be massively worn out at the end of the day."
Some of those e-mails came right after the game.
"I just get off the field and I don't even get up to my office after I visit with you all and I've got six e-mails telling me that I can't coach worth a darn and it's the same e-mails that told me I was the greatest coach in the world a week ago," Kill said. "I have it figured out right now, I'm somewhere in the middle of the line. I'm inconsistent."
This is something that I didn't think Coach Kill would even talk about or acknowledge. Hell, I have this blog and I don't go about ripping the coaching apart limb from limb, much less e-mail Kill myself. Get a hold of yourselves, Huskie faithful. I'd love to see you out there on the sidelines coaching much less playing D-I football.
I tell ya what, whatever negative sentiment you have towards Coach Kill, or if you have any crazy rant you want to get off your chest, just shoot me an e-mail: RABAttack@gmail.com. Please. I could use the entertainment. I know the crazies are out there somewhere.
Oh hey, I didn't even know you were hurt. Read on for the Infirmary Report + more
Defensive end Jake Coffman will play after missing the Idaho game. Wide receiver Nate Palmer (thumb) will be back this week. Palmer missed Saturday's game because the thumb injury prevented him from catching the ball. Linebackers Devon Butler (high ankle sprain) and Tyrone Clark (IT band/hamstring) will practice today and are probable for Saturday.
Defensive lineman Adam Coleman (ankle sprain) is questionable. Wide receiver Willie Clark (back) is questionable. Center Eddie Adamski (low ankle sprain) is probable. Tight end Jason Schepler (elbow) and linebacker/kick returner John Tranchitella (knee) are out.
Getting Coffman and Palmer back will be huge. Butler & Clark need to step up at the linebacker spots. Not looking good for Coleman or Clark and the losses of Schepler & Tranch hurt as well.
Our team is young. Very young. Does Kill have to spell it out for you? I guess he does:
"We came back Saturday. It wasn't like we just laid down and took it. We finally got going and did some things. I looked out there one time and we had Chandler Harnish who was playing quarterback, who is a sophomore. We had four sophomore offensive linemen with one senior, a junior wide-receiver and two freshmen, and a sophomore tailback. That's a pretty young football team. On the defensive side of the ball, we started two red-shirt freshmen at defensive end. You have those types of kids playing.
"And then they hit us in the mouth a little bit and our young guys, I don’t think we handled it very well."
"You’ve got to get hit the face every once in a while to learn," Kill said. "We’re still learning. We still understand that."
