Ty Eriks is used to having his head on a swivel. At the beginning of the 2003 season, Ty was entrenched as Zach Tuiasosopo's backup at fullback. Two games into the 2003 campaign, Eriks switched positions, due to lack of playing time and a need for a true speed-rush specialist.

When asked if this week's practices in preparation for their Saturday matchup with BYE showed the same intensity as a regular game week, Keith Gilbertson couldn't say with certainty. The Huskies took a step back from game-planning and used this week as a time to do a little experimenting. Gilbertson talked about the experiments, as well as who is nursing their various nicks and dings.
