Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
When the University of Southern California named Pete Carroll as their new football coach in December 2000, critics raised a cacophony of objections. The former NFL coach, they noted, hadn't coached anywhere in over a year; hadn't worked with a college team since 1983, and then only as a coaching assistant. It didn't take Carroll long, however, to silence those "experts." After a 6-6 rebuilding year in 2001, he went on a rampage, winning 79 games while losing only 9. He also chalked up victories in five Rose Bowls and an Orange Bowl. Steve Travers's What It Means to Be a Trojan recaps one of the most glorious runs in college football history.
