Quick post-game notes, links

Well that’s obviously a tough one, and the shock was evident on the face of the Husky players afterward.
— Here’s my game story that focused on the disastrous ending.
Jerry Brewer says there is bound to be lots of second-guessing after this one — I imagine it’s already begun, To his credit, as noted in both stories, Steve Sarkisian took lots of blame for the last series. As for the last play, he said he needed to see the film before really detailing it.
— And here’s the notebook that leads off with an item on Cole Sager (much of this had to be written pre-game) but also includes a post-game note on Chris Polk and all the trashtalking in the game with Vontaze Burfict.
— Here’s the gamer from the Arizona Republic with lots of coverage from the ASU side of things. You’ll see that Dennis Erickson just wanted to try to get 20 yards and try a field goal, but Chris McGaha broke wide open.
— Here’s an ASU notebook focusing on McGaha with the note that Erickson didn’t even know he was on the field on the last plahy.
Here’s a quote from Erickson about the last play:
“I’m in shock. We were able to come back, we had one time out try to and get down there and attempt a field goal, although I’m not sure who would have kicked it because Thomas Weber isn’t 100 percent. I’ve been in a lot of games in the many, many years I have coached and I don’t know that I’ve ever won a game on the last play like that.”
And on what he saw the Huskies doing: “They were playing some kind of two deep. We had four receivers and we sent one towards the safety on one side, the other one on the other side, and we tried to put Chris up the middle and the guy tried to reroute him, I guess.”
All for now.
