I’m obviously a fan of this option, but I think it would be extremely important that CU have the appropriate support structure in place to aid him in his sobriety. It’s not enough to just protect CU from Sark falling off the wagon - we would need to do everything we can to help keep him clean.
Why would Sark have any impact on Alfano one way or the other? Also, Alfano is not likely to leave CU regardless. He is already enrolled and attending class. It'll be everything they can do to get him eligible for 2020 season, let along if he transfers again.I would be ok with this provided his contract is incentivized to protect CU 1) should he not actually be clean and/or relapse while he's here, and 2) should he jump ship (I.e. insist on goddamn real buyout in the contract this time, RG). Also, I wonder how hiring Sark would affect Alfano--not saying that should influence RG's decision in any way, just wondering if Alfano would be more or less likely to stay.
Maybe I missed something, but there was a reason he left Alabama. Speculation, IIRC, was that he felt the coaching staff wasn’t very supportive while his grandmother was ill. Said coaching staff included Steve Sarkisian.Why would Sark have any impact on Alfano one way or the other?
I can't imagine Bama's Offensive Coordinator had any significant contact or relationship with a true freshman Defensive End.Maybe I missed something, but there was a reason he left Alabama.

Damn. You just doxxed smiley. It all makes sense now.honestly I'm struggling to see why we shouldn't hire Sark. The alcohol thing is really the only problem and I think we could protect ourselves and Sark with some proactive contracting (GuySmiley don't **** it up) and a plan for Sark. Maybe don't make him in charge of dealing with the next Avery Buffs lager
Do we have any questions about his ability as a HC?
ability to put together a staff?
The MSU money thing makes me feel like we need to moneyball this thing. We can't get Sark without the alcohol problems. But damnit if Sark doesn't get on base a lot and that's what we need.
I think you'd be surprised how little contact or relationship assistant coaches have with players on the opposite side of the ball. I'm not trying to argue with you, I just don't believe your concern about Sark and Alfano to be warranted. Carry on.Try harder. I’m sure it’s sooo hard to imagine a coach on a team had contact with a player on that same team.
