A few quick post-game notes and quotes

Here are a few quick notes and quotes from what was an obviously distraught UW locker room.
Said coach Steve Sarkisian:
“It was a great college football game for everybody. Obviously it’s frustrating to have an opportunity like we had in the fourth quarter to make it a two-score game and we couldn’t do it. The bottom line is that this game came down to two opportunities to score touchdowns from the one-yard line on two separate occasions and came away with three points. .. Our kids played hard. I’m proud of them.”
On the decision to kick a field goal to go up 27-22. “The stucture of the game gave us that opportunity. I’m very aggressive. I believe in our guys and what we do, but at that time it was the right thing to do.”
On the final play and D’Andre Goodwin: “He got his bell rung. It was almost one of the greatest catches of all time.”
On Notre Dame’s two-point play: “I didn’t know where he was and if the momentum stopped him. Unless you’re at the line of scrimmage, it’s tough to tell.”
On the goal line stand: “I’ve never seen guys get tackled that close to the goal-line that many times. Maybe some frustration set in on my part or on our kids’ part to make it a mindset thing.”
On whether he thought Chris Polk had scored: “It looked good, but there’s no replay in the stadium – so we had to go by what they said. … When you have the ball first and goal on the one, you should be scoring touchdowns. And we weren’t able to do it.”
And of injuries, Justin Glenn suffered a broken fibula and Goodwin and Nate Williams concussions.
