The Warriors arrive back in town this afternoon with little free time. Practices resume tomorrow in preparation for Saturday's road game against Fresno State.

So, yes, the Warriors have several problems. But since it's Sunday, heck, here are some of the bright spots:

• Marrell Jackson was recruited for his speed and football IQ. He has emerged as a hard-hitting, downhill-moving safety. His kick-blocking is a bonus.

• During practices, the coaches often have to encourage outside linebacker Jerrol Garcia-Williams to not try to knock down everyone in his way. During games, he is given the green light. He's a solid tackler. When he gains more weight, he'll be a star.

• Placekicker Tyler Hadden is quietly having a solid season. In a season of much uncertainty, the Warriors are fortunate to have a reliable kicker.
