The question, as it was with Carroll and Sarkisian, is can the two remain tight when they find themselves at such cross-purposes, particularly with the Huskies seemingly rising in the Pac-10 pecking order.
“I think you can,” Sarkisian said. “Part of the beauty of the profession is developing friendships and relationships as you move along. We’ll be great friends all the way through this — realistically, even the week of that game. It will be a lot of fun.”
The Huskies, by the way, haven’t won in LA since 1996.
Back in the day when both worked for Carroll, there was plenty of competition, including intense pick-up basketball games.
