Former USC coach and now Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN Los Angeles his thoughts on the NCAA recently stripping the Trojans of their/his 2004 title...

"Just watch the comments of the players. They know. They know who won and who didn't," he said. "You've heard from (Matt) Leinart and Lofa Tatupu and those kinds of guys, they all know. The whole thing is so unfortunate. It's just so far off-base, it's just too bad."

Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting this. It reminds me of how arrogant USC was and vindicates what happened to them.

Dear USC - :rotflmao:

This is the only thing I agree with. You can strip teams of titles, and whatever, but you can't change what happened on the field. But for him to say this is all way off base, and too bad? That is just delusional.

Irrelevant.

USC had an impressive 10-0 season in 2004. Then they failed to see that one of their players was ineligible. Gotta pay.

Are you an accountant for the NCAA or running some retro-CFB fantasy league because you just won't let it go that nobody with a brain cares about this un-American revisionist history-making.

GTFO and move to North Korea if you like pretending the past didn't happen.

"Nothing that's happened has changed my thoughts," he said. "It's unfortunate that kids, years after, are punished for something the NCAA is dealing with from years and years before. Kids that were in junior high at the time, or in grade school, are paying the price for it."

With Ohio State now in the spotlight for similar allegations of improper player benefits, Carroll would not compare the two situations but said any decision by the NCAA would be tricky.

"I think this is a major challenge for the NCAA because of what they have done in the past here recently. I don't know how they're going to possibly make sense out of all this," he said. "It's going to be very challenging and it'll be very interesting to see what happens."
