"This is an outstanding group of Trojan greats-Olympians, All-Americans, national champions and sports icons-who have played an important role in USC's athletic history," said USC athletic director Pat Haden, who was a member of the 2003 class.  "They'll join our first 10 classes of Hall of Famers to form a real Who's Who in USC sports."

The Hall of Famers were selected by a 75-member panel consisting of media, previous Hall of Famers, USC Athletics Board of Counselors and Trojan head coaches and athletic department senior staff.  To be eligible for election, athletes generally must have completed their last season of eligibility at USC 10 years ago.

Why is Pete Carroll being inducted??? He cheated, destroyed USC Football, and then cashed in before the sanctions hit....is that worthy of a Hall of Fame member?
