USC Trojans athletic director Mike Garrett declined to comment Friday night on whether he is about to lose Pete Carroll to the Seattle Seahawks, but he addressed a perception of doom and gloom around the program, with possible NCAA sanctions looming.
"I don't think SC falls down. We're too good. We do things well," Garrett said. "We've had a great history, 11 national championships, we've produced a lot of excellent student-athletes and I don't think that will stop."
