USC Coach Pete Carroll seems downright despondent over his starting quarterback heading to the NFL.

The LA Times's, "All Things Trojan" blog has the video of the press conference, in which Carroll, usually brimming with positivity, struggles to hide his disappointment with Matt Sanchez's decision to go pro. The only upside to Sanchez coming out early seems to be that the other marquee underclassmen quarterbacks — Tebow, Bradford, McCoy— decided to wait another year. Even the USC faithful feel that Sanchez could use a little more seasoning.
