Ethical and Noble Pete Carroll Would Have Stayed Through Sanctions

How can we badmouth such a brave figure. In his latest fluff piece interview with ESPN. Patron Saint Peter Carroll let the world know, if "He had known" what everyone and their grandmothers had known at the time about impeding sanctions on usc, he never would have taken the first call he got from the NFL and bolted in the dead of night for the Seattle Seahawks.

"The truth was, an opportunity came up and it was one I couldn't turn away from," Carroll told the Times. "... The NCAA came back at the university ... 'Now we're going to revisit after five years.' I had no knowledge that was coming. We thought maybe it wasn't coming because they didn't have anything to get us with. It wasn't five days, it wasn't five weeks. It was five years. Had we known that that was imminent ... I would never have been able to leave under those circumstances. When I look back now, I would have stayed there to do what we needed to do to resolve the problem."

See? We had it wrong all along everyone! How dare we continue to doubt this incredibly flawless human being? Who are we to judge? I'm sure if Richard Nixon had known that he was going to be removed from office, he would have surely held off on his resignation speech.


So before we look down on Pete Carroll's Tarnished Legacy the usc dynasty, let's all remember:

St. Peter is not a crook.
