Pete "Barry Switzer" Carroll
Given USC's poor sportsmanship on display yesterday during the Rose Bowl, it appears that the Trojans are starting to behave like Oklahoma and Miami did before their programs imploded from poor behavior. It began with the goofy dancing with each kickoff. Perhaps that was just a way for the players to get up for the game, but when the same players began to mock the Illinois fans by clapping above their heads along with the Illinois fans to one of their bands numbers, it became embarrassing. Add that mocking behavior to the idiocy of Desmond Reed and the others who got unsportsmanlike conduct penalties, and the smell of the Rose was just not as sweet.
