    Sorry, but I believe hiring B. Hedges who almost gave Rick a Bjob during the press conference was the real curse!! You will never change my mind on that one, went to my first Husky game 53 years ago.

    Neuheisal was such a good coach and actually a good guy. Just got caught up in some bullshit...and shouldn't have lied about the 49ers interview. Sark was already essentially signed by USC the week after Kiffin was fired. Sleezey shit.

    Oh well. We are just stuck in that coaches stepping stone stage. Storied program where coaches can come, be okay, then dart to the promise lands.

    Ok, I will honor your opinion, but never agree with it. He took Willingham's team and did OK for 2 years, but blew it on recruiting. Had a chance to build a solid future, but ignored the big boys on both sides of the line and went after backs and receivers. I will refrain from expressing what I think of his character, for that would do no good, and would be contrary from what I have posted about others doing the same. Why is he not at his alma mater coaching anymore?

    To be fair, Sark pulled in possibly the 3 best recruits in UW history....miles, stringfellow, shaq thompson

    Granted he bought shaq from cal by hiring that coach for $500k but still. Those 3 kids could have started in the SEC as freshman

    You mean during "your" history...
    In all due respect at 26 years young - you never saw the best in UW history...

    Hence the word possibly...those kids were all top 20 HS players in the nation by many scouts, with shaq being one of the top 5.

    Turning a recruit into a good player is a whole different ball game. I was just responding to the comment about Sark blowing it on recruiting, which was an unfair assessment in my opinion.

    Golfman, you need to re-read my post in question: I was responding to the post about Neheisel!! Obviously Sark did not take over Willinghams team...that would be the Rickster!

    I'll have to politely disagree with your comments about Neuheial. I bet the Colorado alumni were glad to see him go. He won with McCartney's players and CU started its downward trend when they left or completed their eligibility.

    He didn't last long at UCLA and he's part of that family.

    Sark did take over Willinghams winless squad. Neuhiesal took over for Jim Lambright.

    I feel bad for the way it turned out for Benedict Arnold too.

    To put a finer point on it, Neuweasel seemed to have a hard time telling the truth and doing the right thing. His actions always seemed to underscore a basic conviction that everything in his orbit was somehow put there to benefit him and him alone. Karma can be a real bitch.

    Strange behavoir for someone with a law degree.:D

    "Karma can be a real bitch."

    Yeah, but he won't go away. I turn on the TV, and find that he's now an analyst for FOX. Of course, he only makes $300,000 for that gig, buy that's not bad money for a job with no responsibilities or expectations.

    One problem is all the Husky fans want the UW to hire another Don James to take us back to where we were but there was only one Don James. While Sark got the program out of the cellar that Willingham took us and I appreciate that, he is no Don James. Whoever they get as head coach, it should be a pretty enticing position; new stadium, inheriting a good team, large fan base, a proud and historical program, not to mention a very competitive salary. I wish them the best in this year's bowl and will be rooting for them hopefully for the next 30 years like I have for the past 30 years.

    Of course he did, my apologies.
