It appears USC coach Pete Carroll committed an NCAA violation when he attended Loyola's games against Mira Costa of Manhattan Beach and Concord De La Salle on separate days last month.
Mike Matthews, the Pac-10's associate commissioner of compliance, said NCAA rules stipulate a coach can only evaluate a player once during the fall period, regardless of where the game is being played.
"When a football coach evaluates at a game, he uses an evaluation for every prospect on both teams that are playing the game," Matthews said. "The (NCAA) rule says, `Not more than one evaluation may be used during the fall evaluation period, and not more than two evaluations may be used during the spring evaluation period.'
"If a football coach watches a football game, they've evaluated everybody on both teams in the game."
Matthews added it did not matter where the games were played.
He would not comment on whether the Pac-10 is reviewing the incident, but said such instances are usually a secondary violation.
Carroll told the Daily News earlier in the week it was his understanding the rules allow for coaches to attend multiple games of the same team if they went to watch another team's prospects.
This is not the first time Peetie has gotten himself involved in a recruiting scandal. I will just refer to Menelaus’s legendary list for all the sordid details on Peetie’s past scandals.
Imagine the outcry in LA and national MSM if Rick Neuheisel was involved in something like that after all that baggage from last few years involving Bush, McKnight - on and on and on?
