Video — Sarkisian Monday press conference

Steve Sarkisian’s weekly Monday press conference has concluded.

No real big news as there were no significant injuries Saturday other than pride. He said Justin Glenn hurt his foot a little near the end but that it was not serious, and there is nothing that should impact anyone from playing this week against Arizona.

He began by saying he was glad this is a week where the Huskies have to quickly get back to the task of preparing for another opponent.

“It’s always good when you come off a ball game like last Saturday that you get to play again the very next week. We felt like going into Stanford that we wanted to put our best foot forward. We (felt) some of the keys would be, playing consistent football, doing things right down after down after down; playing with great pad level; being physical; playing fast, and winning the turnover margin. And we just didn’t do that in a lot of areas. I think it’s easy to point, to say that we didn’t do that on defense, but on offense we didn’t capitalize on opportunities. Defensively we were right, we were right – and when we were wrong we got killed for it. So we’ve got to do a better job of preparing our players and then ultimately get our players to a point where they play free, fast football again. I thought we took a step back that way; I thought we looked tentative again.

“That will be a point of emphasis for us this week as we get ready to play an extremely dangerous Arizona team – obviously led by Nick Foles, a guy that can throw it all over the field. But I think now, in all the years I’ve been preparing for Arizona, this is the best they’ve run the football, especially last week versus UCLA, and then against a defense that is continuously improving. So it’s a great task for us. It’s good to be coming home to Husky Stadium, to get in front of our fans. First night game – should be exciting.”

I’ll have more later from Sarkisian. For now, here’s the video:
