Lots of upsets to watch in hoops the last couple of days, highlighted by Notre Dame's win on Saturday. Wisconsin beat Purdue, Georgia Tech defeated Duke, Mizzou took down K-State, and there were a pair of great Big East games in Marquette/Nova and UCONN/Georgetown. Yesterday, Kansas became the latest unbeaten to fall, dropping one on the road to the shorthanded gun totin' Volunteers.
Of course, none of that excitement equaled the news of Pete Carroll's departure from USC. At least for Irish fans, this ends an eight year reign of terror (leaving out Carroll's first season) and makes the upcoming football season even more interesting. Now, we'll just wait and see what kind of sanctions are about to drop (the Trojans are eligible for everything up to and including the death penalty).
