Bumped. GO BRUINS. -N
Just saw on the WWL that Pete Carroll has agreed in principle to be the next head coach of the Seattle Seahawks. All I can say is, Asta La Vista Cheaty!! However, what I found remarkable from reading the article this morning on ESPN was this (HT Blue Me) (emphasis added):
When the news broke Friday that Carroll could be headed to Seattle, USC’s incoming freshman class at the U.S. Army All American Bowl in San Antonio began frantically calling USC’s assistant coaches. For the rest of the day, not a single USC assistant returned a single phone call, according to sources at the game.
By now, calls might have been returned. But witnesses to the scene said that players such as All-American wide receiver Kyle Prater and running back Dillon Baxter could not figure out what was unfolding with Carroll. Baxter, for one, had verbally committed to USC as a high-school freshman and never looked at another school. But now that Carroll is expected to leave USC, other schools already have begun contacting the players scheduled to enroll there in the fall with hopes they will change their mind.
Usually, when something like this happens, the assistants, or an assistant, will call recruits or take the reins until the smoke clears. Not as SUC! No way. All those recruits you have been "competing" for the past 1-2 years can all just screw themselves and don't deserve nothing. Way to go SUC. These high school recruits have finally seen the true colors of all the coaches as SC. It is all about them, it is all about Pete. Just ask Corp. Just ask Sanchez.
Now that Pete is gone, and he is taking with him all of his cheating assistant coaches, the guys they have been wooing don't even get a return phone call? I guarantee you that when those guys calld a few days ago, Norton or Carroll would have stopped breast feeding their children to accept the call. Now, just a busy signal or a voicemail from all u$c coaches. Talk about little class.
It is all imploding at SC, and I can't see how any coach, no matter who it is, can save this recruiting class and the rest that are in it. As a note, Gold has reported that D. Riley decided to take an official visit to Westwood this weekend, at the last minute. I wonder if Cheaty Petey leaving for the Northwest had anything to do with Riley coming to Westwood this weekend. One thing is for sure, D. Riley will be feeling the love this weekend, and hopefully will see that being a Bruin will be special real soon!
