USC To Lose Title And Bowl Eligibility Thanks To Pete Carroll’s Cheating A*s!

- By Bossip Staff

Pete Carroll, the Ex-USC Trojan coach, retired as soon as his tactics for recruiting talent came into question. Pete and USC may have to return a NCAA title and lose Bowl eligibility:

The NCAA hammer comes down today on USC, the most dominant college football team of the last decade.

The coach that restored the Trojans to glory and the player at the center of recruiting violations have both departed for the NFL, leaving the proud program in a shambles. Sources told the L.A. Times the team will be banned from bowls for two seasons and lose at least 20 scholarships. ESPN reported that USC will also be forfeit wins “from at least the 2004 season,” which would likely strip the school of on of the two national championships it won over the last 10 years.

“We are looking at things right now,” a terse athletic director Mike Garrett told the Times. “That’s about all I can say.”

The NCAA is expected to make the sanctions public today. The school and its fans have been awaiting the ruling by college football’s governing body since February, when USC President Steven Sample, Garrett and former Coach Pete Carroll appeared before an NCAA committee over three days. The recruiting violations involve former star and Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush, now with the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints. The NCAA launched its investigation in March 2006, after reports surfaced that Bush’s mother, brother and stepfather had lived in a San Diego-area home owned by a businessman angling to represent Bush when he turned pro.

Carroll, who took over the football program in 2001 and went on to record a 97-19 record with two nnational championships and five Rose Bowl wins, resigned in January to become the head coach of the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks, with a five-year, $33 million contract.

A separate recruiting scandal involving the school’s basketball program is also part of the investigation.

What a great mentoring coach. Thanks Pete!

    EVERY good football program is full of shady stuff, these athletes arent getting sh.1.t.t. from the school, yet their hardwork on the field brings tens of millions to the school!!!

    NCAA football and men’s basketball are basically professional sports without the labor costs. The “student” athletes are there to play sports, not to learn. Some of them have skills that are worth millions of dollars a year. The colleges are supposedly getting those skills in exchange for educations worth tens of thousands of dollars. It wouldn’t be a fair trade even if the athletes were getting the educations they are supposed to be gettng.

  • White Devil

    When the value of a service is not set by the free market but is kept artificially low, a black market will develop. There will always be violations of the NCAA rules, becuase the players are worth more than they are allowed to be paid.

    Good. Except this came too late.

    Gayle Sayers WTF? LOL alright, which fan posted that and what beef did Gayle have with USC?

  • peewee

    @White Devil youre exactly right! These players make these schools MILLIONS & MILLIONS of dollars!!!

    &&Awww the USC haters finally have something to be happy about! smh

  • thatbrutha

    If schools were so serious about this they would personally fine the coach, and AD.

    @White Devil

    Correct on all counts. However, I don’t know how you correct the problem. The athletes are know their skills are worth millions of dollars. Yet so many of them are from underpriveledged backrounds that it seems stupid for them NOT to take advantage of the side deals and under the table kickbacks that come their way. Anyone with an even pas.sing knowledge of professional football and basketball knows that the shelf life of the typical athlete is only about 2-4 years before their careers are ended due to injury, scandal, or lack of productivity.

    So what is an über-talented collegiate athlete to do?

  • BigDaddy

    They should strip Weggie of his Heisman as well…
    Greedy; just too greedy.

    “So what is an über-talented collegiate athlete to do?”

    I think they should do whatever is in their own best interest. I don’t think taking money or favors while in college is a violation of the law, only of NCAA rules. Let the school deal with the consequences. Athletic scholarships are not a bad deal for the majority of college athletes. But for the ones that are guaranteed to play professional sports, they should make as much as they can as soon as they can. Jump to the pros as early as possible. You can always go back to school later or attend in the offseason.

    How does a scholarship to USC equal “not getting shyt”??

  • White Devil

    @ white male

    Rookie salary for Reggie Bush: $3.8 million
    Estimated cost per year to attend USC $57,000

    USC got a bargain. Reggie got (comparatively) shyt.

    @ White Devil

    i have a better idea! There needs to be a semi-pro league for those super talented youngster that’ll get used up at colleges. you pay them, not big pro contracts for people aged between 18-22, earning 40-80k a year isnt bad, you put em up against college football for viewers and sponsors, and if NFL teams want to recruit from this league then come on in!!!

  • Gimmeabreak78


    I think they tried that idea. It was was called the XFL. I think the only player I remember from that time is “HEHATEME”. He went to the NFL, but his career was over in 3 years as well.

    @ Gimme
    I agree 100%

    Yeah nfl europe was @$$, id just like to see these athletes get paid for their work, cuz a scholarship is not equal to gettin paid,

  • White Devil

    @ Gimmeabreak78

    What do you think about Texas possibly becoming part of the Pac-10?

  • Gimmeabreak78


    Speaking as a former college athlete, you can’t pay them, because then you’d have the other athletes in the less popular sports complaining. They are working just as hard in practice (while keeping their grades up to boot), so I don’t think they would take kindly to the basketball and football teams being paid while the track and soccer teams have to be broke college students like everyone else.
