Today is "Turnover Wednesday." The defense will be looking to force turnovers, while the offense will be focusing on ball security. The offense did a nice job by not turning the ball over all day. The offense was the big overall winner in practice today which was good to see.
Bradly Roussel, Allen Carroll, Terrance Dailey, Ben Ossai or Skyler Fancher were not at practice today. Fancher broke his leg on Monday and had surgery today. He should be fine by fall camp. Ossai became the latest academic casualty. No word on when the four of them will be back.
CB Matt Mosley and TB Brandon Johnson both returned to action today. Alvin Logan and Vonzell McDowell were back but limited to non contact drills.
Coach Lambright was on campus today hanging out at the coaches offices and observing practice. Lawyer Milloy was at the team meeting and helped out at practice. Nice to see the new staff welcoming everyone back and allowing them to witness to the team.
Sark really gets it. Lawyer couldn't even get into the weight room to work out in the off-season when Willingham was in charge.
Jordan Polk was the offensive star today a with a couple of TD catches and another TD on a run. Jermaine Kearse als made a number of clutch catches. Anthony Boyles scored on a 40 yard TD pass delivered by Ronnie Fouch.
On defense Mason Foster "sacked" Jake Locker twice but since Locker can't be tackled and he isn't scrambling those sacks get the old parentheses.
Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times missed practice today but it probably wasn't due to academic reasons.
"We have welcomed everybody," UW safeties coach Jeff Mills said Wednesday after practice. "We need all hands on deck. We need everybody around and we want everyone around - fans and former players are crucial to help connect. We want guys to be around and we're trying to get this younger generation to look back at our storied past and the tradition we had. That's something that coach Sark's been doing a great job of, educating our guys to great players of the past."
Sark is very pleased with the development of the safeties. Nate Williams has been especially impressive and he likes what he sees from a healthy Victor Aiyewa. Johri Fogerson is still learning the position, but has good potential. He is anxious to get Jason Wells back healthy and excited to get JC transfer David Batts into the mix.
"I'm just a competitor by nature," Milloy said. "That is what Sarkisian is about. That is what they're building toward. The reason why I'm here, because I bleed purple and gold, and I want to see him be successful.
(As usual I will add it later when Sark gets time to post)
