Pete Carroll Book Tour should be CANCELLED


Remember that email forward circulating a few years ago? Listing the shortest books ever written?

Updated for today, it would read something like “Sobriety, Sanity, and Self-Control” by Lindsay Lohan, “Anger Management” by Mel Gibson, “Racial Tolerance and Understanding” by Rush Limbaugh, “Sound Logic, Reason and Decision-Making” co-authored by Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann…well, you get the idea.

I would put Pete Carroll’s “Win Forever” in the same exact category. A man who just burned the once proud USC program into the ground, and then fled college football to find safe asylum with the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks, dodging NCAA repercussions, doesn’t deserve dollar one from his book tour. He doesn’t even DESERVE A BOOK.

He won’t admit it, and it hasn’t been proven yet, but he knew what was going on USC, and did nothing to stop it. And now the Trojans are a shell of a program because of rampant corruption occurring on his watch.

This is supposed to be a role model?
