Erickson: Carrier Dome tough place to play

The Huskies have never played in the Carrier Dome, and haven’t played in any dome since 1985, when they beat Houston in the Astrodome 29-12.
UW coach Tyrone Willingham has been in the Carrier Dome, a 38-12 loss with Notre Dame in 2003 that he has been loathe to talk about this week, joking (somewhat) on Monday that “I’m having trouble looking back.”
So I decided to ask another coach today who has been in the Carrier Dome what it is like —- Arizona State’s Dennis Erickson.
As coach at Miami frrom 89-94 Erickson took the Hurricanes in there twice, winning 16-10 in 1992 and 27-6 in 1994.
“We had to play our rear ends off both times,” he said. “It’s a hard place to play. Really noise. It’s much more compact than the (Kingdome) was or the place here (the new dome in Glendale, Ariz.). It’s a hard place to play. It’s really hot in there, for whatever reason, and by my experience those fans are interesting. It will be a difficult place to play for Washington.”
