Day 9: Coaches, players talk Day 8 scrimmage, plus other notes

Yes, today was the Huskies’ ninth day of fall camp, and they spent it by practicing for roughly an hour and a half inside the humid confines of the Dempsey Indoor.

But most of the day’s curiosity centered around what happened at Husky Stadium on Monday, when the Huskies held their first scrimmage of the camp. It was closed to media. So we asked what happened. Read more »

Day 7: Troy Williams to John Ross highlights Huskies’ practice

With another practice in the books, let’s get right to the news and notes …

— First, a note that the Huskies were just in shorts and helmets, so none of the team periods were live and there was obviously no tackling.

— There was good news for the Huskies on the personnel front: WR John Ross, who watched Saturday’s practice while wearing a walking boot, was out of the boot and a full participant in practice. And as the headline notes, he also was involved in the day’s best play. Read more »

Day 6: News and notes from UW’s open practice

A crowd of maybe 500 or 600 people or so was on hand at Husky Stadium for UW’s first fall camp practice open to the public. As usual, we have some news and notes to pass along from the session.

— The Huskies were in full pads, their second full-pad practice of camp. The first was yesterday, when they held a closed, off-campus practice at Pop Keeney Stadium in Bothell.

TE Michael Hartvigson watched practice with his right arm in a sling, and WR John Ross watched practice with his left foot in a walking boot. LB Scott Lawyer is still in a yellow, no-contact jersey, and DBs Aaron Chapman and Brandon Lewis are still not participating. Read more »

Notes and observations from UW’s first practice of camp

This was a different start to fall camp than the Washington Huskies are accustomed to, primarily because there weren’t any freshman involved — aside from kicker Tristan Vizcaino, who was the only newcomer to practice with the veterans at 10 a.m.

The rest of the newcomers — as well as a few returning players — will take the field for a separate practice at 4 p.m. First, we have a few notes and observations to pass along from the morning session.

With the Washington Huskies beginning preseason camp on Monday, let’s take a look at five key storylines that will be worth watching over the next three or four weeks.

1. Who gets the reps at quarterback?

UW coach Chris Petersen said at Pac-12 media days that third-year sophomore Cyler Miles won’t play against Hawaii, but made it clear that Miles is otherwise back in good standing with the team after his well-publicized offseason transgression. That means Miles — who was suspended throughout spring — will practice on Monday for the first time since the 2013 season ended. Read more »

Poll: Who is the Huskies’ most important player?

Pac-12 announces 11 a.m. TV window for football, among other decisions

The Pac-12 announced today that it has made a handful of decisions stemming from this year’s summer meetings. The most important announcement for fans, I would imagine, is the addition of an 11 a.m. television window for football games this season.

Complaints about late kickoff times have been loud and frequent since the creation of the Pac-12 Networks. Games will now be broadcast in the 11 a.m. time slot in place of the evening time slot (7 or 7:30 p.m.). Read more »
