After a dry spell, the Huskies were back to practicing in front of the media today. Unfortunately it's the last open practice of the fall, with the team moving to game-week mode with only post-practice interviews available. There was a lot of attention paid (as you might expect) to the OL situation in the wake of the retirement of Dexter Charles, and the defense again notched a number of turnovers.
On to the tweets!
