I admit that I have gone in a lot of different directions since the story broke yesterday.  When I heard the two-year bowl game suspension I just assumed that we there was a smoking gun coming that would be devastating - some kind of surprise...

What an extraordinary week for the Cardinal & Gold.  Unforgettable, and extraordinary.  I have already written of what Coach Carroll's departure means to the Trojan family here.  And no matter what anyone says, Coach Carroll's departure is a very sad thing for fans of USC,...
