ASHBURN, VA. - This is how coach Pete Carroll won big at USC last decade.

Forget all those highlight-reel glamour boys on offence –- the Carson Palmers, Matt Leinarts, Reggie Bushes and Dwayne Jarretts, who scored all those touchdowns, won Heisman Trophies and got the free ... well, never mind about that.

Rather, Carroll won 84% of his games from 2001-09 mostly by unleashing super-athletic, in-your-face, swaggerin’, stylin’, playmaking defenders at all positions, and in aggressive schemes.
