Upward Mobility is a Relative Term

For Pete Carroll, the wages of NCAA sin appear to be a five-year sentence with the Seattle Seahawks. By Thanksgiving, Carroll surely will consider this punishment far too severe to fit the crime.

Yeah, I know he's getting $35 million for his troubles. But Carroll was Pigskin King of Los Angeles. He's going to wind up being another 5-6-7 win coach for the NFL's most and most deservedly anonymous franchise. He won't be the first guy to learn that a raise does not necessarily equal a promotion.

If Carroll has the wit to ditch the Seahawks uniforms and its hideous color scheme, I may revise my forecast.
