Pete Carroll Does Not Practice What He Preaches
Jim Harbaugh ruffled some feathers a few weeks ago when his Stanford football team seemed to run up the score a bit in a blowout of USC.
It led to a feisty (read: lame) exchange between Harbaugh and Trojans coach Pete Carroll, who couldn't figure out what Harbaugh's "problem" was. The implication was obviously that Carroll did not think it was good sportsmanship for one team to run up the score on another. Fair enough ... that's a common complain in sports. But it made this season over the weekend a little more baffling:
So USC's coach verbally spars with an opposing coach for showing up his team, then goes and does the exact same thing to another opponent? Something does not add up in Pete Carroll's view of sportsmanship.
