Sunday Night With Sarkisian

Steve Sarkisian said on the Pat Haden-LenDale White incident: “They had a discussion on the field and went their separate ways.”

Sarkisian said he spoke to Haden but not White since the incident. Leonard Williams played 54 snaps against Utah a week after going 94 against Arizona. Sarkisian said safety Gerald Bowman is healthy to play against Utah. He said Adoree Jackson (hip) must manage his injury and play.

Linebacker Anthony Sarao went 81 snaps on defense and 14-15 on special teams.

“Wow not sure about the call,” Bush tweeted. “Hate to see a game decided on that.”

The whole LenDale White controversy started near the end of yesterday’s game when witnesses said White got into an argument with Pat Haden. Why?

Several sources told me Haden confronted White over his critical comments via twitter during the Arizona game about defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox. White became aggravated by Haden’s remarks and told the athletic director he was not on his “pay roll,” and “All i said was what people were thinking.”

Haden reportedly told White he needed to support the program better and White questioned Haden’s college football achievements.

Another LenDale White Update

I’m not sure why LenDale White was upset with Pat Haden. But I know the second confrontation after the game occurred when White wanted to say hi to Steve Sarksian at his press conference. White did not have a credential to enter the press conference that is when the LAPD and security tried to escort him away and he became upset.
