VIDEO: USC Coach Sarkisian Apologizes...Again

USC Head Coach Steve Sarkisian apologized for the second time today. His first was via a statement issued on Sunday. Today's apology was in front of the media.

Thanks to Michael Lev of the OC Register for sharing the video. Lev has a full transcript of Cutty Sark's press conference posted on the Register website.

Here's the most important comment of the entire press conference from Sarkisian

I took medication and mixed it with alcohol. Not a lot, unfortunately.

Unfortunately? I think he meant fortunately because if that's what happens when he mixes "not a lot", can you possibly imagine what would have happened if it had been a lot?

And, his second most important quote was in response to whether or not he has a drinking problem:

No, I don’t believe so. But, through Pat and through the university, I’m going to find that out. I’m going to go to treatment. I’m going to deal with it. In the meantime, I’m going to be the head football coach here. And I believe I can be. I don’t know what else more there is to say about that.

Ummm....If you're going to treatment, you have a problem. It appears that, even after Saturday night, he is still in denial. This is quickly moving from "ridiculous" to "just plain sad."
