“Don’t condone in victory what you wouldn’t in defeat,” said Coach Sark.
That being said, the Dawgs are in a good position being 1-0, but there is a lot of preparing left to do for their upcoming contest with LSU. Coach Sark also stated how proud he is of the tradition the University of Washington has by playing great teams across the country.
