Charlie Weis is no longer Notre Dame's coach, but that doesn't mean he's out of Pete Carroll's hair. Weis said Sunday that comments he made about Carroll in an interview published by a website were taken "totally out of context." In a question-and-answer session posted Saturday by IrishIllustrated.com senior editor Tim Prister, Weis was asked: "Is it frustrating to you Pete Carroll, for example, portrayed in one way . . ." Weis was quoted as responding: "Let me ask you this question: You guys know about things that go on in different places.

The Seattle Seahawks, who today fired coach Jim Mora, are close to reaching an agreement with USC's Pete Carroll to be their next coach, The Times has learned. A Seahawks contingent including CEO Tod Leiweke interviewed Carroll in Los Angeles earlier this week to gauge his interest in replacing Mora. Carroll has long been considered a candidate to return to the NFL, where he coached the New York Jets (1994) and New England Patriots (1997-1999). However, Carroll's greatest success has come at the collegiate level.

From a dreary field in Seattle to an eerie field in Eugene, the whispers have been the same. From first downs at the Coliseum to the last series in South Bend, the wondering has been incessant. Who is coaching these guys? While the source of the rips and tears in this strangely ragged USC football team can be debated, the overall appearance cannot. Pete Carroll's Trojans do not look like Pete Carroll's Trojans. They don't swarm, suffocate or scheme like them. They don't attack with the same intensity, defend with the same abandon, or behave with the same inspiration.

A computer is allowed to choose between USC's Pete Carroll and Texas' Mack Brown. The result? "Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job." DAVID MACARAY Rowland Heights Football is a game played by humans, announced by humans and viewed by humans. A computer should not determine the rankings of a football team. To err is human -- to pick the wrong team at No. 1 is the BCS. JEFF CALZADA Montebello After learning of the BCS results this week, my girlfriends and I thought we should appropriately express our feelings on shirts that we will wear to the homecoming game: Front: .0007 Back: Number of weeks USC has been #1 in the AP poll: 29 Number of first-place USC votes in the coaches' poll: 53 Letting computers decide the No. 1 team: Useless.

If it seemed like forever for Penn State Coach Joe Paterno to catch Bear Bryant as the winningest coach in college football, how long do you think we'll have to wait for USC's Pete Carroll to pass them? I've seen the glint in the kid's eye when he looks at my daughter, but even if he gets lucky and some day Mr. and Mrs. Grocery Store Bagger have my grandchild, at the 2-5 rate Carroll is going, the next T.J. is going to be an old man holding his own brat and still waiting for Carroll to impress.

Pete Carroll will begin searching today for clues, reasons for why California seemingly imploded a week before a showdown with the Trojans. Cal's 42-3 meltdown at Oregon dropped the Golden Bears from sixth to 24th in the Associated Press media poll. "It was so far out of character and out of line with that they'd done up until this point," Carroll said Sunday. Cal's fall makes Saturday's matchup between the Trojans and Golden Bears a game between top-25 rather than top-10 teams.

Lost in the knee-jerk hype about Saturday's USC-UCLA football rivalry will be the disturbing reality that this is the autumn of our discontent. USC will take the Coliseum field at 7-3, including a 4-3 record in a Pacific 10 Conference that it has owned for most of the decade. Scan the national rankings and you'll find the Trojans at No. 24, their lowest such standing since 2001 and mostly a gift rating based on history. USC will be coming off a 55-21 defeat at the hands of Stanford.

With a showdown against third-ranked USC growing close, Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor has found himself in a tight spot from which he cannot seem to scramble free. The sophomore wrote a tribute to Michael Vick across one of his eye black patches in the season opener against Navy. When asked about honoring the convicted felon, he offered an interesting reply. "Not everybody's the perfect person in this world," he said. "Everyone kills people, everyone murders people, steals from you, steals from me, whatever . . . . " This week, as the controversy gained momentum, Coach Jim Tressel offered his support of Pryor by saying: "Whether it was a coverage read or a defensive guy not playing a gap or whatever, these are all moments that we can learn from."

Eight USC players and two UCLA players were voted to the all-Pacific 10 first team and USC's Pete Carroll was voted coach of the year, the conference announced Monday. Carroll, who guided the Trojans to a record fifth consecutive conference championship, shared the honor in 2003 and 2005. The teams and award winners are selected by vote of conference coaches. "It's nice recognition from the fellas," Carroll said.

With Rey Maualuga and three other linebackers having moved on to the NFL, Chris Galippo said before the season that he was eager to once again have the responsibility, "of either making plays or possibly losing a game," on his shoulders. Galippo, of course, was not solely responsible for the Trojans' defensive collapse against Oregon. But USC's defensive signal-caller and the rest of the linebacker corps struggled mightily during a 47-20 defeat in which the Trojans' defense gave up 613 yards.

As USC attempts to move forward after its upset loss to Washington, Coach Pete Carroll says the Trojans' turnover problems need to be dealt with aggressively. But what of the conservative play-calling that seemed to shackle the Trojans at times in their 16-13 defeat? Carroll on Sunday defended the decisions of play-caller Jeremy Bates , who became an immediate topic for Internet message-board vitriol the second Erik Folk kicked the game-winning field goal for the Huskies.

It took 30 years, but Pete Carroll finally returned to Ohio Stadium as the third-ranked Trojans prepared for tonight's game against eighth-ranked Ohio State. Carroll was a 28-year-old secondary coach on Earl Bruce 's 1979 Ohio State staff. After the Buckeyes lost to USC in the 1980 Rose Bowl, Carroll left for North Carolina State. So Friday's visit to the Horseshoe for the Trojans' typically playful stadium walk-through stirred memories. Carroll recalled looking out his office window three decades ago and seeing former Ohio State coach Woody Hayes walking across the street.

One difference. The cuffs. True to his legend, even on a stroll through a hotel lobby when next to nobody is watching, Paterno's cuffs are rolled up above his shoes, the quintessential 1920s hipster. Says Carroll: "I love those cuffs, I really love them.
