Jeff Lindquist said it best: they had no idea what to expect

 

The Washington Huskies started spring football Tuesday, and it was all in the unknown. All the players had been recruited by Steve Sarkisian, but they were playing for Chris Petersen now, so how would they embrace the change? And what exactly would that change be?

First Impressions: Man, what a difference a few months makes. I can remember the last Wednesday practice before the Apple Cup - and truthfully not that much changed during the Fight Hunger Bowl practices even with Sarkisian gone - and so much has already gone by the wayside in terms of how practices go at the University of Washington

First thing first; the music has been toned down. A lot. Outside of individual periods and warmups, the music is gone. The feeling at practice inside the Dempsey Indoor Facility was at times part church, part classroom. You could hear the coaches and the instruction they were giving the players. 


The distinctive two air-horn blasts to signal an end to a period, something that had been used since the Jim Lambright days? Gone. Instead it was a shot clock buzzer that went off, as players would move to their next assigned areas.


With Cory Littleton out, that gave Marcus Farria and Psalm Wooching time to show themselves out along the defensive line.

Timu in Trouble: Petersen would not elaborate on the senior captain’s absence, other than that he had been suspended and would be coming back for the second half of spring. Tuesday afternoon it was reported by both the Seattle Times and Tacoma News Tribune that Timu was charged in December with two misdemeanor counts of vehicle prowling. The report claims he stole parking passes so he could sell them to teammates. 

This is the latest hit for the Huskies in which a few of them have had recent run-ins with the law. Quarterback
