Only thing ou missed is what schools they coachedat. Football schools or also rane.

Bottom line isSonny ( an several other coaches) in equal time or less are doing a betterjob than Sark.😣

I'll leave that up to you since what you are saying involves a bit of subjectivity 🙂

"Better coached by one who been there one year?"

Who is also in his 12th as a head coach. And who after 8 years as a head coach had a record of 46-52 for a win percentage of .469. He basically turned around his coaching career in his 9th year and has gone 35-10 over the next 4 seasons. But even with that run, his career winning percentage is still only .563. 

This is Sark's 8th full season as head coach and his current record stands at 57-46 for a winning percentage of .553. In case, nobody caught this, Sark will begin his 9th season next year. Which, again, is when Sonny Dykes started the run he is on. Maybe Sark does the same thing, maybe not. Who knows for sure? 

Cats act like Dykes didn't inherit an experienced GP team that has ALWAYS played Texas tough. Let's see what Dykes looks like in the couple years...if y'all really care

Doubt if Dykes inheirted a more talentedteam than Sark.

He definitely did inherit a more upperclassman laden team. With junior and senior starters who will be drafted next year. A senior QB as well, maybe not as high rated stars. But definitely a team set up for a run. Look at offensive line Sark inherited, that’s a few examples of the differences

What B12 team would you trade players with? How about coach?

If TCU had all that talent why was they picked sixth in B12. Texas third.

No, it appears that Dykes was the guy that Del Conte wanted, but Kevin Eltlife, chairman of Texas’ board of regents, wanted someone else.

Eltlife reportedly told the Statesman that he was “involved in the process from start to finish, and Sark was always at the top of the list.”

“We were very excited about Steve from the very beginning, and I am thankful it all worked out because he’s the best man for the job.”

Almost anywhere else in the country, a program of Texas’ size would likely trust its athletic director to make the hire of the head football coach, but at a place like Texas where money is flowing from all kinds of sources, there are a lot of opinions that “need” to be heard.

My friend who worked at SMU under Sonny Dykes confirmed that CDC really wanted Sonny Dykes, but Big Money Donors wanted Sark instead
