Steve Sarkisian accuses Stanford players of faking injuries on the field

In a game that lived up to expectations, Stanford managed to knock off Washington, 31-28, in a thriller that came down to the final minutes.

While fans watching in the stadium and on TV were entertained, Huskies coach Steve Sarkisian was not amused by the perceived antics of a few Cardinal defenders. Sark likes to run an extremely uptempo offense. The way he sees it, Stanford’s vaunted defensive unit was forced to cheat to try to slow down quarterback Keith Price and Co., according to the Seattle Times’ Adam Jude.

“Their defensive-line coach (ex-UW assistant Randy Hart) was telling them to sit down,” Sarkisian told KJR afterward. “I guess that’s how we play here at Stanford, so we’ll have to prepare for that next time. At some point, we’ll get repaid for it. That never serves a purpose for us, and we’ll never do that.”

Shayne Skov, the leader of Stanford’s defense and one of the best linebackers in the nation, took Sarkisian’s comments very seriously.

For those wondering, we have visual evidence of the play in question.

You can see in the photo that Skov’s knee was hyperextended. He could have easily torn something with the full weight of another player coming down on the joint, but luckily he didn’t.

Defensive lineman Ben Gardner chimed in to defend his team and his coach.

If both of these programs continue to dominate, this should be pretty fun.

    Sark is such a tool. Go on an AM radio talk show and toss stones from a totally glass house. When UW wins big games, it’s all about “the program” but when they take a loss it changes to complaints about the officials, the winning team, etc. instead of just taking it. Sad, really, this could be preventing the Huskies from getting to the “next level” that Stanford and Oregon play. Upsets are common in college sports and UW nearly had one – but missed. Just take it or keep it shut for once, next time they win a big one. Huddle up! ;)
