USC players made Steve Sarkisian do up-downs as punishment for drunk behavior

New, comments

That'll sweat the hangover out!

USC head football coach Steve Sarkisian spoke publicly on Tuesday for the first time since apparently being drunk at a donor event on Saturday night.

One detail stood out.

Here's what an up-down is:

Sarkisian had released a statement on Sunday apologizing for his behavior, but clarified his version of what happened that night.

Sarkisian will be entering treatment, although it doesn't sound like that's entirely his idea.

Pacific Takes reported Sarkisian dropped an f-bomb, and tweets suggest he said Oregon, Arizona State and Notre Dame "all suck."

USC's team alcohol policy will also change after the incident.
