I amazes me that everyone thinks all the best coaches are going to leave their current team and line up for the job at sc. Garrett is an idiot and meddles too much. Sanctions are not far away, and this years recurits are bolting.

It was just a matter of time, at least he left before the new recruits were locked in by attending classes today.
Might just be a parting shot to the AD Garrett and the school. He was really pissed that the school wouldn't let Mc Knight play in the nut bowl.

Bye bye Petey boy - too bad you couldn't remove the real source of the problem...Mike "no comment" Garrett. NCAA sanctions will most likely be pretty severe. Now is the opportunity for 'Slick Rick'in Westwood to make this a Bruin town once again.

One last thing - in a perfect world, Traveler III would take a dump in the middle of Garrett's office. It wouldn't make much of a difference, since a lot of crap comes out of the AD's office anyway.:)

Every USC Alum, and fan should be calling for Mike Garrett's head right now. HE IS THE REAL REASON that we lost Pete. Mike Garrett is a cancer, and when ever he is called to the carpet on any issue, he pulls the race card, and immediately throws anyone and everyone under the bus. There is NO room in the Trojan family, or society today for such a narrow minded individual. I would not be surprised to see not only our "pending recruits" elect to attend a different college now, but some of our current players will probably transfer to U of W to connect with the previous USC coaching staff. Steve should have a field day reaching out to some of these young men. Once Garrett is gone, we will finally be able to separate our great institution from the likes of O.J. Simpson and of course, Mike Garrett's web of lies.

Fight on my fellow Trojan Alums, and fans! Pete will probably be back in 4-5 years.

Thank you Pete Carroll for the great years of football at USC. I hope the enthusiasm and excitement you bring to the game carries over to the Seahawks and you are as successful there as you have been here.

No quality coach is going to take the SC job because of the sanctions facing them. SC is in deep doo doo for the next couple of years thanks to Garrett.

"The Los Angeles Times reported that Carroll decided Sunday night to resign from USC and take the job with the Seahawks. The school's players and coaches were informed of the moved through a text message from an assistant"

Class act Pete, let the assistant text the players you "love" that your leaving.

You will see. If not Mike Riley, then another great will jump at the chance to coach the greatest college football program in the nation.
Garrett isn't going anywhere. What is it that he has done (or hasn't done) that is soooo bad. You ucla doormat fools have been whining so much about what?? A kid driving his girlfriends car??? Wow, thats terrible. A family living in a nice house?? Wow, thats terrible too. Both these "infractions" really make a difference on the football field. Reggies been investageted by the ncaa for 4 - 5 years now. They have nothing, they suck and should be disbanded.
As far as ucla goes, they will always be a doormat. "ucla town" ha! You haven't been to a championship or BCS game since Cade McNown and you saw what happened there. Where is he?
Thanks for the great years Pete. Your detractors, the Trojan detractors will never understand. They will never understand greatness, nor will they achieve it. Talk your smack chumps. The Trojans will rise from the ashes like a Phoenix. A new era of greatness is just ahead. Trojan football in 2010. Cant wait to stomp you fools.
Fight On!!

Wow, and the mud-slinging begins. Just can't help yourselves sometimes, eh kids? And then you talk about class...

Pete, thanks for the great run. Thanks for bringing us back. Hopefully the next guy can take the wheel and carry on where you've left off. Good luck up in Seattle, we are happy for you. FIGHT ON!

Hey sleepy, S.U.C. has had their run and it's over. The program is on an elevator on the way to the basement. I suppose it make sense to a bandwagon fan that there will be quality coachs and recruits lining up to coach and play at a school headed for sanctions, right? It's time to put your "Bite on" tee shirt away for a while.
By the way, do the names Smith and Hackett mean anything to you?

For those of you thinking there will be NCAA sanctions against USC for Bush are clueless. There will be none because there is no proof the university knew or should have known that Bush was receiving benefits. This is more about Garrett and Carroll's personality clash and Garrett dictating coaching choices, etc. Garrett should be fired. First name that he contacts is Herm Edwards? The guy is one of the worst coaches of all time!

Herm "You Play To Win The Game" Edwards! LOL that would be awesome, at least there would be no shortage of good quotes.

I think there are a lot of good candidates out there who might be interested, I'm just hoping they make sure to pick the best one.
