Following the most-watched USC press conference in years, Trojans head coach Steve Sarkisian sat down with Pac-12 Networks to discuss the alcohol treatment Sarkisian has agreed to undergo.

Sarkisian didn't go into specifics, saying it will be handled within the university, and then later using his incident and subsequent treatment as a recruiting pitch. "I think the biggest thing is, I'm at the greatest university in the world," he says.

"I think it sends a great message to our team that I'm willing to step forward and want the treatment," he continued. "Our team has been awesome about it. They can't wait for me to stand up in front of them in every team meeting, they can't wait for me to get out (with them) on the field. All in all, I don't know if it's a total blessing or a total positive because there are repercussions that come from it, but I'm fortunate that I'm at the university that I'm at, and that this university is offering the support that they're offering me. That's why you choose to come to a place like USC."

The clip ends with the crew laughing at Sarkisian's team-mandated up-downs.
