"I have no update on Casey. I will make a formal announcement on Tuesday in the press conference," Diaco said.
Diaco did reiterate that he thought the offensive line improved during the game. The Huskies managed only 224 yards of offense and allowed pressure early.
"They did some good things, some things we need to work on," Diaco said. "They fought hard and a lot of guys played and got better as the game went on. They were handling movement better. They added a wrinkle that guys got to get used to...I was overall pleased."
As far as the play of Chandler Whitmer, Diaco estimated 7 or 8 plays in the passing game that could have went big. Some of it was overthrows, some of it was receivers. It's just a hair off.
"Just a little bit of timing. Assigning blame or accountability, you are talking about an inch here or there," Diaco said. "You got guys open, 7 or 8 balls that were just a hands reach from beyond being an explosive play. One or the other, overthrown, under thrown, dropped, when they get their timing down it will be nice."
Diaco lauded Whitmer's game-managing skills. Whimter was 12 of 27 for 142 yards passing.
* The staff asked Justin Wain, the punter, to angle the ball on his final punt to prevent a return up 19-16. Wain shanked the punt of out of bounds, but the Huskies caught a break when he was run into. His second punt was excellent and he was generally very good. Diaco said the angled punt may have been too many instructions for him.
* UConn is 1-1 going to play Boise at home next week. Diaco's expected everything he's seen from the team.
"I am not disappointed in anything. I am seeing what we anticipated seeing" Diaco said. "We got a lot of work to do."
