Am I the only one who feels like Sark would absolutely not put up with this kind of stuff and would nip it in the bud before UW has a multitude of issues in a short period of time?
Maybe that's me being a UW fan, so I'm looking with purple tinted glasses. I feel a little like Sark is a cut above the Lane Kiffen type up-and-coming coaches from an integrity standpoint, and I hope I'm not wrong on that.
We know he didn't appear to even consider the USC job, and if he didn't take USC when the opportunity arises, what job would come along to make a guy want to leave UW? Maybe NFL, but I don't see that happening for a few years yet, if it does happen.
I'm honestly more concerned about his in game management than off the field issues or recruiting. We've got a top notch recruiter, that much we know. What we don't know is if these issues Oregon is experiencing is a thing of the future for us, or something we can avoid entirely with Sark.
We also don't know if his in game management will improve. There are some good signs. He takes blame and seems to reflect appropriately in his post-game commentary, but still it does concern me.
All in all, there isn't another coach I would prefer to see leading UW football. Thoughts?
