USC held hostage Day 3

No surprise that Mike Riley would be USC’s first choice if/when Pete Carroll leaves USC.

The surprise would be if Riley came. He’s already left Oregon State once (for the Chargers). Riley was lucky enough to get his old job back after flaming out with San Diego.

Leaving this time, though, would present another set of circumstances. Riley would be leaving his hometown and the Beavers’ program in the middle of recruiting. Does he really want to do that?

<i>The Oregonian<i/> reported Saturday night that Oregon State AD Bob DeCarolis was prepared to offer Riley a lifetime contract.

If Riley doesn’t come, then the speculation turns to Jacksonville’s Jack Del Rio or Tennessee’s Jeff Fisher. Washington coach Steve Sarkisian took his name out of the “running” on Saturday.

There is more than a little consternation on the recruiting trail where USC. The Trojans top two recruits are uncertain.

“It hurts," receiver Kyle Prater told Rivals.com. "I don't even know what to say. I can't really tell you anything because I don't know anything so I can't tell you. All the coaches at the school are just as clueless as me."

I talked to a USC coach Saturday who was out on the road but had not been contacted by Carroll.  His boss has talked to NFL teams before. He said the concern this time is that the process is dragging out and definitely impacting recruiting.

Corona, Calif. safety Demetrius Wright stayed with USC Saturday, committing during the Army All-American game. He called USC is “dream school.”

Prater is visiting Tennessee soon.  I think Kiffin closes him on playing in the SEC and being coached by a lont time NFL WR's coach in Kippy Brown.

At least Petie got to nail those young girls that Charlie Wies knew about. Paying players and having sex with young girls then running off to the NFL before the ncaa brings the hammer down. I don't blame you for taking up for him he is a stand up guy.

ebonyrod: Even if there were infractions there is nothing I've read or heard that would say Pete had anything to do with it or that he even knew they had happened. There has always been a vendetta by Oklahoma against USC since they seem to have trouble beating them whenever they play. And not just UO but a lot of other fans throughout the country who call west coast football as simply wimpy and gutless. That is until they play us. California supplies quality players throughout the west and especially the Pac 10 who's rosters are littered with California players. The national champs UA's quarterback is from where. You guessed it CAlifornia. Three Heisman trophy winners in the past 8 years from where. Of course it's CAlifornia. California has the largest population of any State. So all this makaes since. Come out to California and live for awhile and you'll find the stereotype given to CAlifornia is ridiculous. And it probably comes from people who have never been to the golden State. I could go on and on and even tell you a story of UA finally allowing black players to compete. But I won't. But it had something to do with USC. Happy New Year!

The spread was 3 1/2 points in favor of Oklahoma and Leinart wasn't a rookie he's just arrogant and way to full of himself back then the only reason Lienart name even gets mentioned because Reggie Bush was their to bail them out, but lets sit here and argue about a National Title game that happened in 2005 because that is going to make either school better in 2010.
