A couple of week ago, Steve Sarkisian was bogged down by a bug. Could have been the flu (heck his team had been passing it along from player to player).
This week, it’s a fever – for winning.
For a man so used to winning at Southern California – where losing was plain-and-simple unacceptable – the constant one-good-game, followed-by-a-bad-game trend has really gotten to the second-year UW coach.
“I’ve been sick. It makes me sick. I can’t stand losing,” Sarkisian said after practice Thursday. “But we go back to work. I’ve been proud of our guys – they fought back. They’ve continued to fight back, and we’ll fight back again Saturday.
