Coaches show notes — Sark talks more about black uniforms

In part because there wasn’t much new to discuss from the earlier press conference and the coaches show last week, this will be a fairly abbreviated version of the notes from Steve Sarkisian coaches show.
The most interesting thing might have been Sarkisian’s elaboration of the black jerseys for Thursday’s game. He confirmed that they will be worn but said the team will stay in gold helmets.
He said among the aspects that played into it is that the players “always want stuff like that.” He also said that with a few other UW teams wearing black at times, or having some black in their uniforms, that black “becomes almost a secondary color to us.” He noted that the men’s basketball and softball teams wore black last year.
He said the school went to NIKE for a mockup and that it “took a couple tries” but ultimately they got it right. He said the players “have a little saying that if you look good you feel good, and if you feel good you play good. So hopefully that holds true Thursday night.”
He also talked a little bit about the original decision to move the game and noted the exposure the program will receive and that the players are enthusiastic about playing in such settings.
But he said that “it’s vital that we play well” and make a good impression on the nation. “From inside our own locker it’s extremely important that we go out and play well, which I think we will. We’ll play a passionate football game, which is something I think we will do.”
In terms of football news, he said that Talia Crichton could be out for the year — with just two games remaining after this one, not a surprise and he had said on Saturday that they wouldn’t rush him back this year. He also said that the OL will remain the same as it was at Oregon, with true frosh Erik Kohler and Colin Porter in a reserve role but likely to get on the field in some capacity.
