From small chair, Petersen has high hopes for BSU

Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

On defense, BSU faces uncertainty just who its players will line up against.

Sarkisian hasn’t confirmed Saturday’s status of tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins and wide receiver Kasen Williams.

Both Huskies were involved in scrapes with the law. Williams was cited in May for being under 21 and operating a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol or marijuana, while Seferian-Jenkins pleaded guilty in July to DUI. Additionally, Seferian-Jenkins needed surgery on his pinky finger this month.

BSU defensive tackle Ricky Tjong-A-Tjoe said he doesn’t care who trots out opposite the Broncos.

“We’ve still got to prepare like we need to prepare,” he said.

From Petersen’s little chair Monday _ one he vowed to substitute with something more commanding at BSU’s next media session _ he said his biggest fear was aggravating penalties and careless mistakes that might help Washington knock BSU and its lofty Bowl Championship Series-busting aspirations off their pedestal.

“So much of it, early in the football season, is about self-inflicted wounds,” he said. “If you can eliminate some of those, you’ll feel better about your chances.”
