Go Trojans, would rather cheer for this ex cougar than the other one
Washington came out of the coaching change smelling like a Rose. I'd much
rather have peterson than Sark. Sart peeked at U Dub.
@ Spokane,we'll see won't we?Good luck to UW
I'm not sure Sark peaked at UW. In fact I"m not sure he was anywhere
near as good as to justify the USC hire. He looked a lot better because the bar
was set pretty low prior to his arrival at UW. Other schools will
now be able to use the "abandonment" card against him in recruiting. It
could definitely make a highly sought after recruit think twice about going to
USC. His predecessor at USC had a huge problem with that. Also
don't just assume that Peterson is a lock to win at UW. The last 3 coaches
to come out of Boise have flopped big time once they no longer have the easy
Sark presents himself so well: answers questions, looks relaxed, has fun, treats
people well, speaks well of opponents as well as his own players.And
did you notice how much Neuheisel (a former competing coach) liked him? Sark is
the real deal. Too bad he's out of BYU's league as far as a possible
What's not to like about Coaching at USC? You just have to steer the talent
in the right direction. If you are a "good" coach, you can get to Rose
Bowl. A "really good" coach goes to the National Championship. The pecking order for recruits in California is:1. USC2. Oregon3. UCLA4. Stanford5. Alabama6. Ohio State7. Rest of
Pac 12, Big 128. Rest of Other Big 5 Conferences9. Boise State10. Fresno11. BYU12. San Diego State13. Rest of MWC14.

@ HammathNo doubt my Man. It really is a good fit for USC as well;
even though I was suprised they didn't hire the fill in coach from last
year (cant remember the name). I like both Peterson and Sark.
This is why I say Sakk peaked; Over all and Conference record while at U Dub:5-7 (4-5), 7-6 (5-4) for three years in a row, 8-4 (5-4). He just
couldn't seem to take Washinton into that 9+ win area. I really liked Sark
while at Wzshinton and I wish him well at USC.
The challenge at USC isn't getting 4 and 5 star recruits, it's
battling the entitlement mentality and the belief too many of the players have
that they've "arrived."Pete Carroll did well there
because he made it all about competition...no one was entitled to start and you
played if you practiced well and worked hard...and he made it fun.Sark was there during that time...he knows the challanges. I think he'll
Three BYU alums as head coaches in the PAC. How many current Utah alums are
head coaches in the Power 5? Just wonderingFight On!
Well if Sark can get 7 wins then maybe the u should hire him since whit
can't seem to do that.I suspect the position on the hill should be
open at the end of the year.
Wasn't thrilled that SC hired Sark. I'm also a BYU fan, so I love
seeing Y alums succeed, but I was not particularly impressed with how he coached
the Huskies. He gets the benefit of the doubt for a year or two. He won't
have a very long leash.
