When I mentioned last night the Seahawks’ win brought back memories of the Pete Carroll era at USC, so did the Richard Sherman outburst. Carroll defended Sherman today, telling Seattle station 710-AM:
“You’re talking about a guy in a warrior’s mentality in the middle of everything. He’s a fiery guy. That was Richard being Richard in a moment where you would like to pull him to the side and take a knee for a while, then we’ll talk to you.”
That was also a part of the Carroll era. Remember the taunting at the Rose Bowl game against Illinois in 2008? Or Rey Maualuga’s little dance behind an unsuspecting Erin Andrews at the Rose Bowl? Some things never change.
