Bark for Sark


On the brutal afternoon of September 14th,1996 in Husky Stadium, when the star Cougars quarterback picked himself up off the turf after the Huskies bashed him for his 8th - yes 8th - sack of the day, Steve Sarkisian was en route to the 29-17 defeat that would eventually deny his 14-1 BYU Cougars the 1996 National Championship. Did young Steve Sarkisian ever dream he would one day return to this scene of slaughter as a veritable Husky Hero? Ah, the unforseeable irony.

The defeat only made young Sark stronger. Yes, that very season would see the future Saskatchewan Roughriders quarterback and USC Offensive Coordinator win the Sammy Baugh Trophy, grace the December 1996 cover of TV Guide, and win the Cotton Bowl.

Now the Washington Head Coach, Sarkisian has inspired the hottest shirt in Seattle. Half the fans in Husky Stadium were wearing these shirts today, or one of the 3 other "Bark for Sark" designs available. Steve Sarkisian, the man, the myth, the Husky Hero. He's just living the dream.
