Perhaps as much as reliving the glory days at USC, Pete Carroll also wanted to keep his reputation intact last night as he once again addressed NCAA sanctions
“I never felt it was dealt with properly,” Carroll said. “I thought it was dealt with poorly and very irrationally and done with way too much emotion instead of facts.”
Carroll said USC’s error was being unaware of everything going on outside the program.
““We just didn’t know what was going on,” he said. “Had we known I would like to think we would do the right thing and would have stopped everything and fixed it by doing what we should have done. But unfortunately, because we didn’t know, the university gets killed over the deal.”
