Sarkisian on with Colin Cowherd

UW coach Steve Sarkisian was a guest on ESPN Radio with Colin Cowherd earlier today, You can access the audio here. Here are some of the highlights:
— Sarkisian said it’s hard to tell how the league would have changed had the Pac-16 happened, saying “not sure if we would have ever known unless it came to fruition.” He said he thinks that it would have been natural to have expanded recruiting into Texas a little bit but that “I don’t know how much more it would have changed outside of that.”
— Asked about the addition of Utah, he said “I think it will be a good fit from a proximity point of view and a football point of view” and noted Utah’s recent on-field success.
— Asked about the USC sanctions, he said that “I was pretty surprised” but that he doesn’t know all the “specifics of the information and the hearings and all of that. I wasn’t interviewed by the NCAA, so I don’t know to what degree and extent all of those things.” He said again that it’s “an eye-opener” for other coaches to make sure they are paying close attention to the activities of their players.
— Asked about the reaction of Lane Kiffin to the sanctions, he said “I think he was disappointed, is maybe the best word. We can all safely say that we knew something was going to happen, but to what degree we didn’t know, and when this came down I think he was disappointed to know that ‘man, I’m taking over a program and that this is the starting point’ for him.”
— He was asked about Jake Locker and said what he’s said often about his gifts as a player and as a person and teammate.
— He concluded the interview noting that he took the boat to work today, living right across UW on Lake Washington. When told he was living the dream he said “that’s right.”
