Deal or No Deal: Pom Pom’s whining about Harbaugh going for two is the ultimate “Irony Alert,” and it just cries out to be immortalized on t-shirts
How cool would it be if Pete Caroll was confronted with hundreds of “What’s Your Deal” t-shirts when he emerges from the Mausoleum tunnel a week from Saturday?
And now, YOU can make it happen. These shirts (in all sorts of colors and styles) are available right now, and CAN be shipped to you and on your person in plenty of time for the big game. And even if you aren’t going to don the kevlar and make the bi-anual trip to Hell, Petey’s infamous crybaby query to Jim Harbaugh after the Stanford upset will live forever, so the shirts will still be good.
Every time a trojan sees one of these shirts, it will stir up the bitter memory of giving up 55 points — the most in the History of sc football. And people are also going to remember the needless two-point conversion attempt that got Petey’s panties in such a bunch.
After the game, Carroll asked Harbaugh, “What’s your deal?” In other words, “Why did you try to rub it in with that slap-in-the-face, when the game was clearly over?”
To which Harbaugh responded: “What’s YOUR deal?” In other words, “Why have YOU been doing this exact type of thing to everyone for the last 5 years, and, how do you like being on the receiving end of it?”
And please don’t waste your time trying to contradict me with the Coaches’ subsequent interviews, where — obviously — they deny everything. After all, you don’t really expect Harbaugh to admit that he just wanted the scoreboard to read “50,” so that the trojans’ humiliation would be a little deeper, and so that the final score would be a little more impactful when repeated over and over again on Sportscenter, do you?
And Pete knows that he is the last person in the World with a right to complain about Harbaugh’s decision. Therefore, to the Press he says the right things — That it’s “Football,” and it’s up to sc to stop the attempt (which they did). But if he really feels that way, then why ask Harbaugh “What’s your deal?” Doesn’t he realize that after all these years of running up the score, not punting on 4th downs, leaving his starters in, and continuing to throw deep in blowouts, that eventually it was going to come back to him?
Sure, it WOULD have been a classless decision to go for two, UNTIL you realize that Harbaugh was just doing what KARMA demanded. And now, Karma demands that you join in the fun, and continue to REMIND Pete that what goes around, comes around.
Don’t like it, Pete? Deal with it.
