I was with you until this paragraph. Sarkisian would be a fool not to have taken that job. UW isn't USC, not even close. USC has way more upside and will out recruit Washington most years. Easy decision. USC most likely has as much if not more talent on the roster than Washington has. It would be a terrible, terrible, decision for Sarkisian not to take the USC job. That was an easy decision for him. Now giving him the USC job, that is shaky.
