Tonight was a magical night in Los Angeles inside the Coliseum. The resurgent USC Trojans welcomed in the fourth-ranked Stanford Cardinal and they showed them the door with a 20-17 upset.
The atmosphere in the stadium tonight was electric throughout. The fans were raucous and the Trojans’ players were right on point. They looked at times as if they were the ranked team on the field, not the men clad in all white.
It was kind of reminiscent to the days when the USC football program ruled the college football world back in the mid-2000s. The days when Heisman trophies and national championships were a normal, every year occurrence.
Well, after the big win this evening, the leader of those teams–former head coach and current Seattle Seahawks head coach, Pete Carroll–gave a little recognition to the program’s accomplishment on this night:
Congrats to the Trojans! Amazing! #FightOn

Now, some can take this one of two ways. Some may say it’s a nice gesture, while others might be a little skeptical as they believe that Carroll turned his back on the program when he left for the NFL, knowing that the school would be put under sanctions.
