Re: 20 years later, what is the FINAL verdict on this guy?
Even talking to former players there's no consensus on Sparky. Some guys liked playing for him way more than Brad Scott. Would have been interesting to see if his time would've been different had the administration not turned down a bowl bid in 1989 and 1990. Given his coaching career since then, I guess the likelihood is that it might not have turned out much different.
