I'm happy that the Huskies won this weekend after what transpired last night in Green Bay. Bears & Cubs...well let's not get in to that right now. One thing to look forward to is Larry English making his debut tonight for the Chargers @ 9:15 CST on ESPN.
Huskie Wire | Q&A with John Tranchitella...Tranch: newly minted kick returner and more confident than ever:
JS: How is this defense starting to come together?
JT: Good. We're starting to come together and I think we're going to have a pretty good season. I think we're going to be better than we were last season on defense.
Huskie Wire | Young Huskies come to play early...a couple quotes about some potentially scary-good young Huskies:
"Both those young men that are playing, Perez and Martel, they’ve just touched the surface of what they can do now," Kill said. "They’ve got some gear to them and some play-making ability. They’ll get better as they play.
"We’ve got a good group of receivers that are working right now. Again, as you watch college football, we’re going to need them all. But I’m very, very, very pleased with the production of that group right now and what they’re doing."
WR Martel Moore is quickly becoming one of my favorite players:
"The bigger the game, the bigger I play," he said.
Kill on the inexperienced defensive line:
"As the game went on, we got better defensively. In some aspects we could have turned around and played earlier this week because we've got young kids. We were sacking the quarterback in the second half but running past him in the first half. I tell the kids to play hard but we were playing out of control early on. We had to tell them at halftime to play under control. We have such good kids here and they do exactly what we tell them. We have to learn to play under control. As the game went on, our younger kids continued to gain some confidence."
I guess this kind of makes sense? I feel like he's contradicting himself:
Western Illinois head coach Don Patterson
On NIU's ability to hold WIU to 7 points:
"The score was a little misleading in terms of how we matched up physically with them and I feel like it wasn't as one sided as the score board, but of course the game is judged on the scoreboard so based on that we got defensively beaten tonight."
