According to those attending Washington’s practice on Tuesday, Steve Sarkisian has brought in a live tiger in preparation to this week’s tussle against LSU. Either that or he’s just bored and picked him up on his way into the office.
Freshman linebacker Travis Feeney was surprised to see a live tiger at practice as you might imagine, and the team was not alerted beforehand about this interesting addition.
”I had no idea,” Freeny said. ”It was pretty funny when I ran out … I was like `Oh! A tiger!”’
Now THAT is how you prep for one of the nation’s better football teams, although unless this tiger can play defense for Sark’s crew, it probably won’t do much. This tiger is now listed as the backup weak side linebacker.
Les Miles will respond by bringing in one dozen huskies to LSU practice, but this has nothing to do with Saturday strategy. He just wants to roll around with them after practice and see if they can understand him. He understands them, that’s not the issue, it’s getting them on his level.
