So you're at a bar/club and you see this hot ass girl sitting on one of the stools kinda hanging out by herself. You kinda recognize her. You realize that she's hooked up with a couple people that you know. The rumors floating around are that she's a crazy ride but you'll pay for it. Fogged by the glitz and glamor of the atmosphere - as well as the booze from celebrating the fact that you're drinking on a Tuesday - you go for it. Then BAM herpes.
I feel like this is the scenario a college football coach walks into when they've had success. The NFL looks like a tasty tart, a larger salary, more control, a larger stage. However, when making the move, they're blind to the mistakes of the others, only to walk into the same trap all the ones before them did. The failure as a college coach in an NFL franchise sticks with you - not unlike herpes - for it takes a ton of work and wins - Valtrex - to make people forget about the debacle.
Now Pete Carroll, considered to be a genius of this generations football coaches, is posted up at the bar eyeing that potentially infected girl in this case, the Atlanta Falcons. Come on Pete. I remember a few years before when you were very stern about not leaving the USC organization for any NFL team. Well besides the Raiders, quite honestly I think you've picked the most infested franchise in the nation. Better stock up on those AB's and bring some rubbers cause if you're in for the long haul, you're gonna get burned. Pete it's better to get caught looking.
