    National Championship Pregame

    Does anyone think that it is kinda BS that Pete Carroll is a guest commentator on ABC right now? Don't you think that that may be an unfair recruiting advantage?

    No, I don't. Now if you excuse me, I have to go shoot another commercial that will appear during the NCAA Tournament.

    Everyone knows who Pete Carroll is so it doesn't really make a difference

    Re: National Championship Pregame

    ESPN did show Paul Rhoads' post game speech after the Nebraska game as a part of their video of top college football moments from the past decade, so I'm not complaining.

    Re: National Championship Pregame

    Why wouldn't they go get a famous coach that does well with TV stuff? This is a no-brainer for the TV guys.

    How exactly would USC get any more of a recruiting advantage than their standing as a program, location, tradition, and national championships and Hiesman winners give them? If those don't already give them a huge advantage, then this appearance won't give an advantage.

    If they do (and I think they rightly do), then this appearance won't matter. So, congrats to Pete for a nice paycheck and easy gig tonight.

    If Pete Carroll starts signing tons of blue chip recruits, we'll all know why

    It was a fine post, just wrong, that's all. I would say CPR being on there does more for us than Petey being on there does for them. If he game wasn't in his home stadium I would have a problem but him being there makes sense.

    Having said that I ******* hate Mark May. He is such a condescending ***. He also is wrong more than half the time. I don't understand how he has a job.

    With my # of posts, a few of them have been wrong. You're still OK with us geeks.

    I love Lou Holtz, but he was physically acting like he was blind and Mark May looked like he was blind. was this shot at noon and green screened in?

    USC's home field is not the Rose Bowl. That would be UCLA.

    Re: National Championship Pregame

    ESPN is to blame for the rich getting richer, too.

    If you have to watch ISU basketball on Full Court, you're force fed ESPN TV spot after ESPN TV spot because the games are a pay-per-view direct feed without local or regional commercials. Duke and UNC basketball. Texas and LSU football. Michigan v. Ohio State. Just more exposure for a handful of "elite" programs. I about passed out when they had Baylor in a TV spot the other day.

    I did think it was odd that they matched Josh Groban and Flea to do the National Anthem.
