Exhale......For Now

It looks like Pete Carroll will remain the head man at USC, at least for now. It's still a long offseason, and I won't feel relieved until all NFL head coaching positions are filled by someone not named Carroll. ESPN is reporting that Blank and Carroll are still in discussion. I'm not sure what there is to keep talking about, but hopefully it pertains to the quality of one of the Trojans that will be on the 2008 draft board, and not about season tickets to Braves games to make the head coaching position more appealing.

If that's not good enough news for you, how about this one? Oregon's Jonathan Stewart has declared for the NFL draft. The Ducks emerged as a force in 2007, and finally defeated my beloved USC. But this latest declaration removes the entire backfield from Oregon, with Dixon graduating and Stewart now looking to play on Sundays. At the moment, Oregon doesn't appear to pose a threat in 2008, unless they have some major weapons on the bench or arriving as recruits that I don't know about.
