Remember how Steve Sarkisian called Reggie Bush "an idiot again" last night and the story got all swole up and talked about by everyone on the Internet?
Turns out, he didn't think anyone was going to hear about that, since he said it in a production meeting to Shelley Smith and assumed she wouldn't repeat it. That's according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer (via CFT ) who brings us quotes following Sark's Huskies getting whipped by Nebraska.
"The quotes came out in a production meeting for [the game against Nebraska]," Sarkisian said. "In general, those production meetings are not for print media."
"It was a conversation, it was part of a conversation where there were quotes on both sides," Sarkisian said. "It's unfortunate, it's a great learning lesson for me about when things get said around media, they're live."
Fortunately for Sark, the football world probably won't talk about this long -- there's WAY too much dissection of how bad Jake Locker stunk the joint up to handle for us to spend an excessive amount of time worrying about whether one of Reggie Bush's old coaches thinks he's dumb for getting USC put on probation and giving back his Heisman.
But it's probably safe to say that Shelley Smith won't be pulling any more scoops from meetings with the Washington football staff. But, yeah, Sark should know better than to call someone as high profile as Bush an "idiot" in a room full of reporters and not expect that to get reported.
