What a wonderful start to the holidays. Who would have expected an early present from Jake Locker to you and me and his teammates and his family and the whole Husky community?

The two mix it up at Husky Stadium Saturday at 12:30 p.m.

It was two head football coaches ago that I last covered a UW practice, so a lot has changed since I was last in Husky Stadium as a member of the media. Here are some of my observations from Saturday's practice, the last official practice of fall camp. The first thing that popped into my head was the fast pace. Wow do these guys ever get things done in a hurry.

With the days ticking ever closer to Washington's September 5th clash with LSU, the more Steve Sarkisian is thinking about the game. More specifically, how the mechanics of the game are going to go.
