|Pete Carroll posted a 97-19 record as the head coach at USC.|
Forde: "And don't think Carroll didn't foster the atmosphere that created the (Reggie) Bush fiasco. His best USC players got Hollywood star treatment, with celebrities circulating freely within the program. The practice field, the locker room, the sidelines during games -- they were open to stars and opportunists alike."
Plaschke: "Simply competing was never enough for these Trojans. They had to follow Carroll's motto by always competing, everywhere, in everything, even if that meant cheating."
