http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/ht...016464635_sark_bites_---_colorado_editio.html had his presser today. interesting stuff. really compares where washington was in 09 to us now. some key points from the article. feel free to read the rest from the link above. "In regards to Colorado, it's been pretty fascinating watching them. Got a chance to watch some TV copies of some of their games, and to me they are eerily similar to who we were a couple years ago. I think they have talent on their football team, I think they are well-coached, I think they play hard and they are trying to find a way to get over the hump and to win some of these tight ball games. You look at the Cal loss in overtime, you look at the loss to Washington State late in the game, and so...they are trying to find a way to win. But I will say I've been impressed with the way they play and the style in which they play. Coach(Jon) Embree's done a really nice job of instilling the type of team that he wants, and it's just a battle. But very similar to who we were two years ago and very impressed with the way they're approaching week-to-week and how they play." bout speedy: "He is an excellent football player and they are one of the best screen teams we have seen now in three years of preparing for opponents and part of that is his stature --- he can get caught in there and stuck in there behind offensive linemen and next thing you know they dip the ball out to him and he makes one cut and they are huge plays, and it happened again last week against Stanford. I think he had over a 70-yard completion on a screen, so his stature pays off for him mostly in the screen game because you can't, you don't see him very well and then boom, he's out, and they do a great job of coaching the screen game, so it will be a huge point of emphasis for us this week, without a doubt. On if he is similar to Jacquizz Rodgers:"Oh yeah, their running style, their quickness. I think they are both quicker maybe than they are fast, their ability to get to top speed in a hurry and to make full-speed cuts, I would say that is a good comparison.'' On Colorado having gotten a lot of sacks: "They play aggressive defense. I think where it shows up the most is in third-and-long. They've got a lot of exotic pressures that there's a real NFL influence to their defense with what they do on third-down situations, but they are aggressive on first and second down as well --- a lot of five-man pressures. And they do a good job of getting after the quarterback. They rush with a purpose, that's for sure, when their guys are coming.''
