It seems almost cliche to have players talking about winning a game for their coach, but when Washington takes on Notre Dame this week that cliche takes on some added significance. When the Fighting Irish roll into Seattle, Tyrone Willingham was supposed to be leading their charge. Now he's the Huskies' head coach and doing everything he can to get his new players ready to take on his old team.

Brad Vanneman can trace it back to a conversation at the end of the 2004 season he had with then-tight end Joe Toledo. It was right after Washington had lost a tough Apple Cup in Pullman and without a post-season to look forward to, all the two seniors-to-be could look forward to was a chance at redemption. And everything took off from there.

With only two days left in spring, it appears the Husky offense is shaping up well for the 2003 campaign. With a senior quarterback and All-American receiver both returning, there is no question that this year's offense will be capable of scoring a lot of points.

For the past two seasons, Washington has had a problem. It's an issue that has not been a familiar one around these parts in a long, long time. Offensive Coordinator Keith Gilbertson put me on his $hit list for saying this, and it pains me to say it, but I'll say it again: the Husky running game has been anemic. Well, it all begins up front, and there is significant reason for optimism as spring unfolds.
