Still Nothing New Regarding Cyler Miles and Damore'ea Stringfellow

New, 77 comments

Chris Petersen has kept almost stoically quiet regarding the status of Husky QB Cyler Miles and WR Damore'ea Stringfellow. If you thought perhaps there would be some clarity after practice today, you will sadly be left in the dark.

In an update from Adam Jude, where he quoted another local reporter (I am pretty sure this reporter was the first one to ask a question about the suspended players, and nobody else got the chance to follow-up.) struck up a conversation with Coach Pete about the quarterback competition.

I thought I give a shout out to Danny O'Niel and interpret Coach Pete's answers:

Can you give a status update on the Quarterback Situation: "We've got two quarterbacks out here that are competing their tails off, and there's no change with Cyler right now." (I know you're going to ask me about Cyler Miles, but since I don't want to wait for you to ask about him and String, I'm going to address the elephant in the room immediately so I can get on with my day.)

Despite the fact that he was not criminally charged: "Absolutely." (I'm pretty sure that's what I just said ... but just in case you missed it, I'll answer your question with a single word!)

Is he still part of the team: "Right now he's not." (Do you see him at practice, taking reps? Have you seen him anywhere else??? Look, I don't know what we are going to do regarding Mr. Miles, even though he hasn't been charged. Frankly, there's a lot of stuff that still needs to be looked at, and I don't want to talk to you about how we are going to deal with it. I will say this though ... there is a possibility that he will be part of the team in future. However, if I were to give you a percentage, I would probably have to say somewhere in between 23.75% to 91.15% are the chances you're looking at right now.)

What about Mr. Stringfellow: "No change with him either." (I suppose you're job requires you to ask moronic questions, so I'll give you a six syllable response. You actually don't deserve any response, but since I'm a nice guy, I'll give you something to chew on. Man, I really want a cheeseburger right now.)

Do you feel like you have to make some sort of statement with those two based on what happened: "We're always going to do the right thing by our program. I said that from the start. So we're handling it internally and doing the right thing always by our team, by the University, and what's right by these players." (I could have answered you with one word, but I though it would be polite to give you a longer answer since you asked a long question ... however, I'm not quite sure what you're asking here. Am I making a statement to the players? Am I making a statement to String and Miles? Am I making a statement to the University? Am I making a statement to the fans, media of players' families? Look, I can't tell you what I'm thinking because small children and women will get probably see or hear these comments, but let me be as stratightforward with you as possible! When a decision is made, you will figure it out from there.)

When do you think you'll make a decision: "Don't have a timetable set." (Uh, I wouldn't tell you even if I knew about it bud.)

Have you read the police report: "I've seen some of it." (Wait, I'm the coach right?)

Any response to what's in that report: "I've got no response to it." (What, you want me disparage two kids who have put themselves in really difficult situation in front a bunch of news reporters? If you want that kind of garbage, go talk to TMZ, I'm sure they'll be able to make something up for you.)
