Charlie Weis And His Comments About Pete Carroll

Weis is now backing away from the reckless comments he made about Coach Carroll.

Weis later claimed his comments were meant to be general statements about false Internet rumors and their impact on coaches’ lives.

 

These are the statements that Weis make about Coach Carroll,

“Let me ask you this question: You guys know about things that go on in different places. Was I living with a grad student in Malibu, or was I living with my wife in my house? You could bet that if I were living with a grad student here in South Bend, it would be national news.

“He’s doing it in Malibu and it’s not national news. What’s the difference? I don’t understand. Why is it OK for one guy to do things like that, but for me, I’m scrutinized when I swear. I’m sorry for swearing; absolve my sins.”

Mark Sanchez Rookie Of The Week In NFL

Former Trojan quarterback, and current Jets QB, Mark Sanchez has nominated for NFL Rookie of the Week.  Go here to vote and check back Friday afternoon to see who wins.

Sanchez’s stats:

Sanchez recorded the third most passing yards for a rookie in Week 1 in NFL history, completing 18 of 31 passes for 272 yards, one touchdown, one interception and a passer rating of 84.3 in the Jets’ 24-7 win over the Houston Texans. Sanchez led a Jets offense that gained a total of 462 yards and controlled the ball for nearly 39 minutes.

So much for Coach Carroll not being happy about Sanchez leaving, it did leave the job open for Matt Barkley.
