Wednesday was not a good one for the Washington Huskies, as Will Mahan was diagnosed with a season-ending injury, and running back Johri Fogerson is doubtful to play this Saturday against Syracuse. We spoke with UW Head Coach Steve Sarkisian to get his thoughts on the injuries, as well as his take on the team bouncing back from their loss to BYU.

A crowd of roughly 15,000 turned out for the first Friday Night Lights spring game in Washington's history and saw quite a bit of defense with a little offense sprinkled in. While they were entertained with several contests between Husky coaches and students, they also saw the Purple beat the Gold (white) team 14-13.

After three weeks of spring ball and 11 practices, the Husky defense is starting to exert itself in the weekly standoffs called scrimmages. Here's a little progress report on the Husky defenders as I see them in practice. Even though they lost their two best players from last year in Donald Butler and Daniel Te'o-Nesheim, I think as a group they are making some great strides to fill those voids.

SEATTLE - If it wasn't clear by Tuesday, Steve Sarkisian put it out there in big bold letters: Every Spot is Available. There is no depth chart right now, the UW Head Coach said after the Huskies' 10th practice of the spring. He wanted more physical play up front, he got it. He wanted to see different combinations of linemen on both sides of the line of scrimmage - he got that too.

SEATTLE - After Jake Locker completed a pass to Kavario Middleton in the end zone, it looked like the whole offense went crazy in unison, jumping up and down. It appeared a football may have been the victim of some excessive celebration, and a few flags come out to spoil the mood.

The system has been implemented: The culture has been changed; the recruiting is excellent; the General is definitely in charge. That's my current opinion of Husky Football. Call me nuts, but I think this head coach will be here for at least 15 years and win this program many championships.
