    Could be, but there aren't many more sought after or higher profile college HC positions than USC. My guess is that he was going to go to USC given the opportunity no matter what, and really, can you blame him? There aren't very many people that would turn down a pretty major promotion to stay at a lesser position even if things were going great at their current position.


    If he was going to stay, it would be out of loyalty. But what coach is going to stay out of loyalty when the press calls for his job after having the school's best season in a long time?

    I don't know if it was the difference or not, but what I do think is that this wasn't an easy decision for Sark, he was in talks with UW for a long term contract extension just a few days ago. Hearing the malcontents bury him over unreasonable results based analysis probably reduced the friction to him leaving.

    I don't know much about Helfrich, but I do know that Oregon rode Mariota this year about as much as I've ever seen any team ride a QB. Mariota showed some vulnerability towards the end of the season. I think UW definitely loses to Oregon next year but long term, I think Oregon is on a downhill slope.

    Ha, then you shouldn't have popped off guaranteeing victory over Oregon. You know I can't let that slide, cuz until that happens all I know is 10 in a row.

    I do think Mora would be a good hire, he just doesn't make me shake in my boots as you suggested.

  • Matt Leinert saying he loves the hire. "Sark taught (him) everything (he) knows".

    That makes me feeling much better about Sark's departure.

    I say with throw a bundle at Pinkel and his staff. Sark was never going to bring discipline to this team. I'm more surprised USC wants his gimmicky BS than I am with him taking the job. Now he cleans house too? Good. The last thing we need at U-Dub is coaches that don't want to be at UDub. I will personally be boycotting our (lower) bowl game if that biotch will be on the sidelines.

    Some have expressed concerns about the program now being viewed as some "stepping stone". This is an isolated instance where a coach accepted a job in his homeland and at a program he once coached. Not to mention, perhaps the most storied program in the history of college football. UDub is no stepping stone and I'm surprised by the (knee-jerk) reaction to this (not all bad) news.

    I like Pete but never wanted Sark, or the stench of USC, he brought with him to the Dub. Good riddance punkass. He's Kiffin II and I look forward to USC becoming UO wanna' be south. USC alumni will tire of his inability to discipline players and his passive demeanor in a big hurry. His first step should be to hire Leinert as his QB coach.

  • Orgeron is supposedly an ace recruiter and has gotten the USC players to compete for him. I think the big question is whether or not he's ready to be a HC outside the USC system. Has never been more than a positions coach before this year. Was never a D or O coordinator at any level from what I can tell. I think it would have made sense for USC to retain him as coach due familiarity, but might be a gamble for another major program.

    I believe he was head coach at Mississippi or something like that for a few years, and it did not go well.

  • I think Haden offered the asst gig to Orgeron as a face saving move. I applaud Orgeron for telling USC to shove it. It was probably (ultimately) a 1 year deal to let Sark get his feet while keeping Orgeron quiet. Some reward. I like Orgeron more now than I did yesterday. When you get slapped in the face, only a puss turns the other cheek.

    Leinert was more than weak armed, he also lacked discipline. I'm seeing a trend.

  • I wish before he let the cat out of the bag he would have met with his team.

    They deserved to be the first to know. Not everyone on twitter.

    Before accepting the job he should have called the AD and setup a meeting with the team.

    To do anything less just leaves a sour taste.

    It used to be we love Sark. Now Sark is Kiffin II. LOL.

    If you watched Leinart at USC then you wouldn't be so quick to disparage him or his opinion. He was never a good pro, would never work like a Russ Wilson, but you can't say anything bad about the guy's college career.

    Would be a pretty terrible hire IMO. Orgeron is a monster recruiter but as an X's and O's guy he lacks a lot. His tenure at Ole Miss was a train wreck.

    Now, he could very well have learned a lot from his first mess and is a born again coach as a result of it. After all Pete Carroll had the same thing. But Carroll also never had the tenure Orgeron did at Ole Miss either.

    If Washington's new HC were to pluck Orgeron and place him on his staff though - that'd be a major coup.

    Then I underestimate him. All this time I thought he had a pretty good team around him. Neither the Heisman, or the Natty, are (in reality) individual awards.

    Point to a post where I ever said "I loved Sark", or your post is bullsh*t.

    I watched every minute of Leinert's career. If he was QBing this big turnaround of a team that you credit Sark with, his numbers wouldn't have been better than Price's. Maybe I should be Grateful for Sark's hiring of Holt, too. He's your boy. Enjoy losing to UO every year.

    Matt Leinart was one of the best college QB's of all-time. His pro career has nothing to do with that.

    Reggie Bush and the rest of them sucked though.


    Oh-oh...what was that...sensibility? Thank you.

  • So does this mean our gimmick offense is most likely a short lived, one year, deviation.

    I say with throw a bundle at Pinkel and his staff. Sark was never going to bring discipline to this team. I'm more surprised USC wants his gimmicky BS than I am with him taking the job. Now he cleans house too? Good. The last thing we need at U-Dub is coaches that don't want to be at UDub. I will personally be boycotting our (lower) bowl game if that biotch will be on the sidelines.

    Some have expressed concerns about the program now being viewed as some "stepping stone". This is an isolated instance where a coach accepted a job in his homeland and at a program he once coached. Not to mention, perhaps the most storied program in the history of college football. UDub is no stepping stone and I'm surprised by the (knee-jerk) reaction to this (not all bad) news.

    I like Pete but never wanted Sark, or the stench of USC, he brought with him to the Dub. Good riddance punkass. He's Kiffin II and I look forward to USC becoming UO wanna' be south. USC alumni will tire of his inability to discipline players and his passive demeanor in a big hurry. His first step should be to hire Leinert as his QB coach.

    All of this seems pretty unnecessary but I guess that is what internet message boards are all about.

    Seems pretty ungrateful considering UW had won 12 games in 5 seasons before Sark got there. But college football is the ultimate what have you done for me lately sport so I understand.

    It used to be we love Sark. Now Sark is Kiffin II. LOL.

    If you watched Leinart at USC then you wouldn't be so quick to disparage him or his opinion. He was never a good pro, would never work like a Russ Wilson, but you can't say anything bad about the guy's college career.



    Point to a post where I ever said "I loved Sark", or your post is bullsh*t.

    I watched every minute of Leinert's career. If he was QBing this big turnaround of a team that you credit Sark with, his numbers wouldn't have been better than Price's. Maybe I should be Grateful for Sark's hiring of Holt, too. He's your boy. Enjoy losing to UO every year.


    Why the anger?

    Name his WR's.


    Smith and Byrd were 2, add Lendale White to the mix...how many TDs did White and Bush run for during Leinert's Heisman run? Oh, USC's D sucked too, right?

  • I've said what I had to say. Not about to sit here talking up USC football.

    Great program that, IMO, made a big mistake today. Time will tell. Go Dawgs.

    Leinert was more than weak armed, he also lacked discipline. I'm seeing a trend.


    He didn't lack a Heisman trophy or a National Championship though.


    Then I underestimate him. All this time I thought he had a pretty good team around him. Neither the Heisman, or the Natty, are (in reality) individual awards.


    Point to a post where anyone ever said that he didn't have a pretty good team around him or your post is bullshit.
    Believe it or not, it's possible to be a very good college QB even if you have a very good team around you.

    And you are wrong, the Heisman is, in fact, an individual award.

    The Heisman Memorial Trophy Award, is awarded annually to the person deemed the most outstanding player in collegiate football.

    What did they do in the pros? They must be terrible and their opinions meaningless. LOL.

    It's cool HawkWow, we all get fired up for our college teams/alma maters.

    You could be right that USC made a big mistake and time will tell. I'm not big on the hire but the only person I would of got really geeked about was Gruden which of course was a pipe dream.

    I don't think Kiffin was a terrible coach as much as just a corpse as a personality. I'll never figure out how he was so good at recruiting, when did the sales pitch end and the corpse take over? The players didn't get inspired by him and weren't having fun thus they didn't put forth the effort on the field. If Sark can recruit and get the kids up for games then SC should be fine.

    But again who knows? That's why we sit here and debate on internet message boards instead of doing our jobs.

    Wow. Steve Smith, Dominique Byrd and Lendale White. Amazing group of talent there.

    Matt Leinart was a special QB in college. You know who else was? Tim Tebow and Vince Young. They were all terrible in the pros but that doesn't lessen their college careers.

    Now if Matt Leinart came out and commented about some pro coach teaching him things.. thats one thing. But its hilarious to bash Sark, when you have a lot better examples, listing the comment his college QB at USC made while they won 2 titles in 3 years.

  • Speaking of "stepping stone" with the exception of Barkley, that's what USC is for QBs. QBs that get exposed like chumps at the next level after "stepping" away early and losing the all star cast that once supported them.

    You talk about him like he was a non-factor, LOL, How many TDs did White give USC? I'll wait for you to look it up. Wipe the egg from your face before formulating your next reply. Take away Bush and White and USC is in the Holiday bowl with Leinert.

  • This thread has gotten really silly really fast. Sark's gone. Some are happy, some are sad. UW could be better off for it, it could be worse for it. Regardless of if Sark leaving is a good thing, the program's a lot better off now than when he got there, and I appreciate that. We couldn't say that for Gilbertson or Willingham, and arguably not for Neuheisel either.

    What's most important now is that they hire the right guy.
