    I think that USC is probably going to be facing some serious sanctions from the NCAA finally. That is my guess as to why Carroll is leaving all of a sudden for Seattle of all places. Carroll has had offers the last few off seasons and why Seattle right now of all places when the team is in shambles? It just doesn't make sense to me. I think it will be the sanctions coming and it would be about time.

    I think Carroll would be happy at Seattle. He would have money and control, not to mention a great fan base and stadium.

    Well this all just came out of nowhere. It just seems fishy with the timing and all. Very sudden.

    I just saw on NLF Network. Carroll agreed to terms (in principle) with the SeaHawks.

    My question is why the SeaHawks, why not the Bills, or Bucs.

    My guess. He gets to stay on the west coast and will likely have a lot of input on personnel.

    Just an easy question is why would you want to go to the Bucs or Bills?

    I agree. But the Bills have already interviewed both Shanahan & Cowher..... the weather is better in Tampa.

    The Seahawks just recently created an opening, & they've already got their man??

    Seems kinda fishy to me.

    Reggie will be a Seahawk next year. This has to be because USC wont be able to play bowl games for na few years.

    Tony Dungy made a tongue in cheek comment on the Carroll hiring that it's easier coaching poor 19 year olds than it is coaching rich 25 year olds.
