The Morning Haul

Good Morning!

The most interesting thing I found is a twitter feed by Jon Rothstein of CBSsports.com. Here is his quote:

"Just hung up with Washington coach Lorenzo Romar – whose Huskies should be one of a few contenders in the PAC-12. Romar on Washington “I think we’re a long, athletic team that could be very good defensively. Our guard play should be really good.”Romar on Tony Wroten “He’s a phenomenal passer. He’s like a d-back defensively. He’s got a real good attitude about himself in a good way.”Romar on Abdul Gaddy “I call him “calm amidst the storm”. He’s really steady and should be ready to go.”Romar on Scott Suggs, CJ Wilcox, + Terrence Ross “It wouldn’t shock me if all three averaged in double figures.”Romar on Terrence Ross “He’s become a better defender. He’s a perfect example of how our wings compliment our guards.”Romar on Darnell Gant “I don’t see any reason why he can’t average around seven rebounds a game.”Romar on Aziz Ndiaye “We just need him to be a little better offensively. Defensively, he’s obviously tremendous.”Romar on Martin Breunig “He’s very skilled at 6-9 and put the ball on the floor.”Romar on Jernard Jerreau “If he does in practice, what he’s done in workouts, he’s going to help us. He’s 6-10 w a 7-6 wingspan.”Romar on the sleepers in the PAC-12 “Oregon and Stanford.”Really got the feeling that we’ll see plenty of four-guard sets this year for Washington. Tony Wroten could lead the PAC-12 in assists.Early prediction on Washington starting five Tony Wroten, Abdul Gaddy, Terrence Ross, Darnell Gant, Aziz Ndiaye."

"The hardest I ever got hit was by Dave Hoffmann, an All-American middle linebacker. It was basically a hot route, in which, as the tight end, if a blitz came you run three to five yards and turn around. The ball would just appear in your hands it was thrown so fast. The team ran this play a lot and they were very good at getting the ball over the blitz. So that meant the middle linebacker was sitting there waiting for you. The first time we ran it, I caught the ball, and he lit me up. He knocked the wind out of me."
