Rocky Seto Comes From the Pete Carroll Extremist Wing of Trojan Nation

Something else to think about on this ugly day for UCLA fans. During the long tragicomic hiring process for a defensive coordinator the name Mark Carrier came up.  Carrier had established himself as a reputable position coach in the NFL. He had solid stints with Baltimore (as DB coach) and New York Jets (as DL coach) where he helped put together couple of the most effective and aggressive defenses at the highest level. I wrote that only a week ago but now it feels like months ago.

Carrier is a Trojan. I was skeptical of bringing him in as a DC because of lack of DC experience but at the end of the day I would have been okay with him. I didn't have a lot of issues with a Trojan like him coaching at UCLA for one big reason. He was a Trojan long before Pete Carroll arrived at SC. Pete Carroll was little more than a regular Trojan. I don't really have to flood you with all the links on Pete Carroll from last few years. Carroll and everyone of his disciple despised UCLA. These guys actively went out of their way to destroy UCLA for 10+ years on and off the field. These are the same guys who poured salt on our wounds and ran up the score. These are the same guys who destroyed all the goodwill in this rivalry.

Seto as a Carroll disciple is not some average Trojan. Here is a little video:

That video came from "PeteCarrollTV."

The guy is the perfect Pete Carroll Trojan. He is hard core. He comes from the  extremist wing of the Trojan Nation.

What you also need to keep in mind is this. This guy is only going to come here for 1-3 years and when he leaves Westwood, he will not have any problem with stabbing the Bruins in the back.

The question is why should UCLA alums be happy with this kind of Trojan character representing our football program?
