UW loses to USC, falls to 6-4 — Post-game scene

Back up from the post-game interviews, some of which I’ll get posted on here shortly.

For now, here’s the scene as the game ended with a little instant analysis thrown in.

To answer the big post-game question, Keith Price said he will play next week though he was vague on the exact nature of his injuries other than saying they were to both knees. He said he’d have a better idea Monday. But he said he wanted to stay in the game, and could have stayed in.

There were no other apparent significant injuries:

Also, here is the opening statement from UW coach Steve Sarkisian: “Well I think the reality of it is, when you play a good football team – you have to execute. As I touched on with the team, this isn’t about want-to. We all wanted to win the football game. Our kids wanted to win the game. I don’t think it was for a lack of effort. It was a lack of execution, quite honestly. Football is a pretty simple game; you’ve gotta block, you’ve gotta tackle, and you’ve gotta run. And we didn’t do that very well tonight. And to top that off with 11 penalties for I think for about a hundred yards – especially a couple at some crucial moments, like the 3rd and 20, a pass interference – that’s the game in a nutshell. It’s concerning offensively – 12 sacks in two weeks; the lack of execution is concerning to me. And then the biggest glaring thing on special teams and on defense was our inability to tackle. I don’t think it was that there were guys wide open downfield, or gaping holes for guys to run with; we didn’t tackle. so the fundamentals of the game are what we need to get back to so that we can match our execution with our want-to. Because I know our kids want to do well, I know they want to win, I know they want to play hard, which they do. But we have to execute so that those two things can marry up and so that we can play good football.”
