Safest To Cover Bets Of The College Football Year

Apparently Jim Harbaugh is in the know.

“Perhaps the reason it’s been up and down here [at Stanford] is that no one has stayed here 20 years,” Harbaugh told Dodd. “… Charlie Weis is going to do that at Notre Dame. [Jim] Tressel at Ohio State. Pete’s doing it. He’s only got one more year, though. He’ll be there one more year. That’s what I’ve heard. I heard it inside the staff.”

Pete Carroll might leave. The rumors have been too rampant for me to worry about it anymore. But it is hard for me to buy that Jim Harbaugh, of all people, is the one with inside information. Even if his info turns out to be accurate and precise, why in the world he would randomly volunteer a quote like that before he’s even coached a single game in the PAC 10 is beyond me.

Pete Carroll wasn’t too happy,

“If he’s going to make statements like that, he ought to get his information right,” Carroll said. “And if he has any questions about it he should call me.”

Why You Would Want To Anger Him, I Have No Idea

Around the blogosphere it has been picked up by Deadspin, The Wizard of Odds, and of course Conquest Chronicles.

Finally, Dennis Dodd (CBS Sportsline writer) is reporting (via AOL Fanhouse: USC) that the copy of the UCLA Football Spring Guide he received explicitly predicts a 20 point victory by UCLA over USC this year.

Uh, whether Carroll is at ‘SC in coming years or not, I think we can say for this year that Stanford and UCLA are going to get their asses kicked.
