USC Losing Leverage, Gaining Humility

There were three events that occurred over the past two days that signified a change for USC’s football program.

USC was slapped with penalties from the NCAA Infractions Committee three weeks ago.

Pete Carroll, Will Ferrell, Captain Compete Pull off a Halloween Prank

Despite the pressures of trying to go undefeated each season and win a national championship, the guy sure has managed to set up pretty awesome pranks….Read More

Pete Carroll Should Not Go to Atlanta

Much like I said about Cam Cameron last week, coaches looking to make jumps need to ponder the situation they’re going to. Some people get so blinded by the thought of a promotion that they go to a bad team, perform poorly, and get canned for good. I’m not saying that Pete Carroll wouldn’t be…Read More
