Husky Coach Steve Sarkisian live from Ballard

The Huskies pulled off what may be one of the greatest upsets in school history last Saturday when they beat the third-ranked USC Trojans. According to a Seattle Times poll, fans say this win was bigger than the “Whammy in Miami.”

The winning field goal was kicked as the final seconds ticked off the clock and then in a blink of an eye the field was swarming with Dawg fans. As the Huskies prepare for their first away game of the season at Stanford, first-year Coach Steve Sarkisian will be answering fan questions tonight at Anthony’s at Shilshole. The 950 KJR Husky Coach’s Show will air live from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Play-by-play guy Bob Rondeau and KJR’s Mike “Gasman” Gastineau will sit down with the coach and talk about last week’s big win, the upcoming game and everything else Husky Football.

It was an epic win. Looking forward to the rest of the season. The Huskies are now in the same position as USC was -in letdown mode.

Not sure what to say, I like the intensity Steve has brought to the Huskies….but I've wondered if Sarkisian and Holt's decision to leave USC was in part due to the looming NCAA sanctions of the USC football program, and wonder what part of Pete's ways they will bring to Seattle.

Sure Steve left for an obvious promotion, but Holt took a 150,000 pay cut to come up here.

Agreed. Many people forget the LA does have a professional team and the NCAA investigation is still ongoing. When Bush took forever to get his first NFL touchdown, I always reminded everyone it wasn't his first “professional” touchdown.

One football team beat another? Why is this such a big deal?

I'm here because I like to read about my neighborhood. But I'm at a loss to understand what all of the fuss is about.

Not sure if Holt took a pay cut. Remember Pete is a control freak when it comes to defense; doubt if Holt ever got to call a game. Now he,s his own man.

According to the Times he took a pay cut.

However, I think the NCAA lets coaches and coordinators take loner cars as gifts, so I'm sure there is much more to their compensation than what the university pays. No doubt a 911 or something like that.

UW is going to stomp WSU this year. After the Huskies first few possessions against LSU, and seeing that intense crowd, my first thought was WSU is screwed this year. I'm no champion of either team, but UW looks very sharp.

Actually the link above is old. Holt makes more then he made at USC and makes the same amount as WSU head coach Wulff. He is one of the highest paid coordinators in the country- Read more here- http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/huskies/2

I have no doubt you are at a loss when attempting to understand football. I'm hitting the like button, because few would be honest enough to admit to the world they do not understand such a simple concept.

Shilshole is considered Ballard.

And when did you ever expect commentary to actually be relevant to the entry on this blog?

I feel sorry for anyone that had to go to college in the toilet known as the University District.

Are you serious? Barney, are you a toddler? Keep it cordial and relevant, Ballardites!

Because it will bring in more donations from alumni who haven't paid attention to the university until seeing it on SportsCenter. Next question.

I feel sorry for anyone who did not have the financial facilities (or perhaps academic prowess?) to know the proper use of the word “who” after the word “anyone.”
