Stanford head coach David Shaw slammed Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian on Tuesday after the Huskies coach accused Stanford of faking injuries in the Cardinal’s 31-28 win this past weekend.
Taking his turn on the Pac-12 coaches’ teleconference weekly teleconference, Shaw said: “We don’t fake injuries, we never have and we never will. I don’t condone it. I don’t teach it. I don’t allow it.”
He also called Sarkisian’s allegations unprofessional and got in a zinger when he pointed out that the only coach in the league who has been known to tell players to fake injuries is on Washington’s staff, defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi, who did so while at California.
“That’s not calling anybody out. That’s just stating a fact. It’s been proven. It’s been admitted and we all have moved on,” Shaw said.
And, as if to twist the knife, Shaw added:
“We didn’t do it against Oregon, so why in the world would we do it against Washington?”
Translation: You’re not Oregon, pal, so simmer down.
