    Seattle fires Jim Mora, ESPN reporting Pete Carroll next.

    ESPN going nuts on possible move of Carroll to Seahawks.

    Nothing concrete, but Mortenson and Schefter reporting on the possibility, claim that Carroll is already putting a staff together.

    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    It's a good time for Carroll to get out before the roof falls in on SC football.

    He's tried the NFL before, and flamed out. He's a god at USC, I don't see him taking a hike. NCAA is never going to give them any real punishment, they are a cash cow and draw big ratings.

    the basketball team at USC has been made the scapegoat (the Reggie Bush situation was 2 years prior to Mayo but is still dragging on ).

    Even if they do get real punishment, are fewer people going to watch them? Nobody gets taken off TV as a punishment these days and no one is bowl ineligible. The most that would happen is that they would lose some scholarships, and be put on probation.

    Yup, nothing is going to happen to them, so I don't think it will be an issue for Carroll wanting to get out.

    Some teams do get taken off as a form of punishment. I really like what Carroll does for the college game. I really think that college football is better off with Carroll than without him. But I think that the hammer is going to and needs to come down on USC football. With the absence of a NFL team in LA, USC football is king. That players are treated like royalty which inevitably leads to NCAA infractions. If Carroll leaves I think you will see USC football face serious sanctions and go through another 5 year down period.

    I certainly can't remember the last team that happened to in either basketball or football.

    I hope Carroll doesn't leave (and I don't think he will), but if he does, I hope guys like Mike Leach, Chris Petersen, Steve Sarkisian are at the top of USC's list to replace Carroll.

    I'm not so sure Pete Carroll will be a great NFL coach. What do you think?

    Anyway, TV money in college football flows through the conferences, not the NCAA. The NCAA makes its bones from the basketball tournament.
