COLISEUM TO BE STORMED, CARROLL CARRIED OUT NUDE? For those of you scratching your head and wanting some instant analysis on the FOTJ (Fall Of The Trojans) this season, Scott Wolf of the L.A. DAILY NEWS isn’t afraid to reveal that it has been Pete Carroll’s absolute incompetence in squandering talent at the running back position that has thrown Troy’s season down the stairs:
“The main focus for a couple weeks is whether John David Booty or Mark Sanchez should play quarterback. But the bigger problem all season is the stubborn refusal to shake up the tailback rotation.
“I’m guessing most defensive coordinators who face USC are thrilled Joe McKnight was developed too slowly and Allen Bradford remained on the bench. All summer, we referred to the need to stretch defenses and it rarely happened from the tailback spot.“If McKnight and Bradford (who could start on virtually any team in college football outside of Northwest Arkansas) remain on the bench for the rest of the season (enough of Chauncey Washington, we don’t care if he’s senior!), the Coliseum should be stormed with Carroll carried out nude.
