Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says he has no memory regarding a famous post-game exchange with Jim Harbaugh in 2009.
Even we remember it, and we’re not exactly Pac 10 junkies. Stanford beat USC 55-21, and the beat down included a two-point conversion attempt called by Harbaugh late in the game.
Cameras caught Carroll saying, “What’s your deal?” when they met at midfield.
“What’s your deal?” Harbaugh said in return.
“You’ll have to talk to Jim about that,” he said. “I don’t know anything about it. I don’t care about it. It means nothing to me. That meant nothing to me. . . . I don’t even remember the circumstances other than we were getting our butts kicked. Other than that I don’t know.”
Methinks Carroll doth protest too much. But that’s apparently on me:
“If you write that, it’s because you think that,” Carroll said about any hard feelings with Harbaugh. “Because it’s not true.”
