USC wants to wear red uniforms on Saturday; Pete Carroll willing to give up two timeouts to do so

USC coach Pete Carroll is willing to forfeit two timeouts if it means his Trojans get to wear their red home uniforms Saturday against UCLA.

NCAA rules stipulate that the visiting team must wear white uniforms. If USC does come out in red, that infraction would cost them a timeout in each half.

Carroll really looks like he's serious about this, too.

From ESPN:

"As for losing timeouts? "I don't care about it right now," Carroll said. "I think it's the fun thing to do, and I think the fans will appreciate it over time."
USC is a heavy favorite in this game, but what do you think of the decision to forfeit the timeouts? What if this somehow came back to cost them the game?

Again, USC will probably roll and those two timeouts probably won't come into play. But ... it's still risky to even open the door to that kind of catastrophe.
