Spotlight on James Johnson

A few notes from the coaches show

Quick practice update

More from Sarkisian

Two days later, Steve Sarkisian was still accepting congratulations for his team’s play against LSU. “That’s new to me,” Sarkisian said today at his regular Monday press conference. “I’ve never been congratulated so much for losing.
