Who would you rather have as your head coach? Two great head coaches so you could debate this issue. But what you cannot debate is which coach created a better coaching tree.
Meyer’s had Dan Mullen (Mississippi State), Gary Andersen (Oregon State), Charlie Strong (Texas) and Kyle Whittingham (Utah) just to name a few. Carroll’s had Lane Kiffin (USC), Steve Sarkisian (USC) and Ed Orgeron (Ole Miss). End of story.
Tim Tebow has worked out at USC off-and-on for the past couple years. Maybe Mark Sanchez should complain to someone about that because for the second time in his career he is going to be a teammate, this time with the Eagles. Let the media circus begin.
Actually, maybe Matt Barkley is the one that should be upset.
Here’s a view of the USC campus circa 1965-66. Note the parking and open space of the campus. The green field adjacent to the track is the old Bovard Field where the baseball team played prior to the construction of Dedeaux Field in 1974.
