Two prominent members of the USC Trojans engaged in some fisticuffs after arguing over money. The result, WR Steve Smith got the better of TE Dominique Byrd, landing a haymaker and breaking his jaw.

You would think this type of behavior would be frowned upon in Trojan country, but the head "genius" and ultimate "players coach" (much like the greats Ron Zook and Rick Neuheisel) Pete Carroll characterized the incident as "no big deal". Is this a blip in the otherwise successful tenure of Carroll or the beginning of a Bobby Bowden/ Phil Fulmer-style discipline program beginnng? Stay tuned.
