Press Conference Notes: Sark Looks Inward
While Seattle was off enjoying the late-summer weather, the Huskies were back at work on Montlake. Needless to say, there's still a bitter taste in the football program's mouth after a 30-27 win over FCS foe Eastern Washington, meaning the Huskies understand this week is more about their own performance.
Coach Steve Sarkisian led off his weekly press conference Monday with plenty of props for the Eagles, and a learning lesson for his young team.
"We played much too cautious," Sarkisian said. "Much too cautious a brand of football."
There's plenty the Huskies could Monday Morning Quarterback about the game, but the reality is that UW is 1-0, it's goal headed into the opener. Sark reiterated the turnover battle (EWU 4, UW 0), one of the most telling stats in football. The other aspects are fixable. What Sark wants is for the Huskies to play fast and free.
"There is potential of that, for sure," Sarkisian said. "Hopefully as (the players) see themselves on film and realize we weren't necessarily wrong, we just weren't doing it with the energy, passion and explosiveness that it needs to be done with."
