If it’s any consolation, UW coach Tyrone Willingham and athletic director Todd Turner know you’re frustrated with the Huskies’ performance on the football field. And while it may not do much good, they say they share that frustration.

Willingham met the media today and admitted that the 48-41 loss to Arizona on Saturday was among the most painful of his career.

However, he said it is more important for the coaches and staff to listen to each other than to fan criticism. And he said that he has no indication that the discontent is costing him any recruits.

Willingham also was sorta, almost, kinda given asked if he would give a vote of confidence to defensive coordinator Kent Baer. Willingham didn’t, but explained later that he simply doesn’t believe in taking such issues public.

All of that will be the main topic of my story in the Tuesday paper.

Meanwhile, Turner’s blog on the UW web site addresses fan frustration.
