After listening to Oregon defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti Tuesday morning, one couldn’t help but wonder if the veteran coach wasn’t over extending his raspy pipes to inspire his squad in preparation for No. 16 Washington on Saturday.
Aliotti, with his noticeably hoarse voice, told reporters Tuesday’s practice wasn’t as crisp as the prior day, which may have been the reason behind the gravelly tone.
“I thought we had a better Monday than we did today” explained Alittoi.
“Tuesday’s are usually our hardest day at work,…more things usually go into the game plan so that could be just more thinking than not being able to react.”
In his post practice briefing, Aliotti discussed the evolution of Husky senior QB Keith Price and containing the speed and agility of RB Bishop Sankey.
