Concerns that athletic Washington quarterback Jake Locker won't be able to work within new head coach Steve Sarkisian's pro-style scheme might shortly evaporate.
Locker completed 16 of 18 passes for 200 yards and two touchdowns as the Huskies' starters buried the backups, 33-0, in the spring game.
Obviously, a team that went 0-12 last year lacks skilled depth, so Locker was exploiting overmatched players. But Locker's accuracy, a problem the previous two seasons, showed dramatic improvement throughout spring practices.
Running back Chris Polk also made a statement with 95 yards rushing on 12 carries. A marquee 2008 recruit, Polk began last season as the starter before getting hurt and redshirting.
And here's a potentially meaningful quote from linebacker Mason Foster, who had two sacks in the scrimmage, to the Seattle Times.
"Everybody is working three times as hard as before. Everybody wants to play for these coaches and they are coming out and competing every day, whether it's in the weight room or video games at the house. It's just a different mentality."
Lots of good quotes and notes here.
