Pete Carroll and Jim Harbaugh have a history together, they both coached in the PAC-10. Carroll ran the monster years of USC dominating, while Harbaugh flew a little under the radar until Andrew Luck brought Stanford out of darkness.
The two know each other very well and Carroll even lambasted Harbaugh for running up the score on his team.
Of coarse that was after Carroll had done that to just about every college team USC encountered.
They now continue their rivalry in the NFC West and it’s as contentious as ever.
This week Carroll has accused Harbaugh of trying to get an edge with the officials after a November game where Harbaugh complained about the play of the Seahawks cornerbacks, according to Matt Maiocco of csnbayarea.com.
On Wednesday Carroll stated that Harbaugh was ‘just working the officials,” but then added: "Oh, come on, that was just coach speak," Carroll said in a conference call with Bay Area reporters. Carroll continued:
"We didn't get our hands on many guys," Carroll said. "They were too good at the line of scrimmage. We had trouble getting a hold of those guys. We were working at it, but I don't know where that came from.
"I did go back and look at the film to see what Jim was talking about. And I had trouble seeing why there was a complaint. But the fact that he did, he was just trying to get some help from the officials, I think."
"We have corners who are good-sized guys and who can run like crazy," Carroll said. "And they've been coached in the same style. We're not changing our style drastically by changing personnel. We got guys we picked who play the way we like to play."
The bad part is Brandon Browner is already out on suspension for PED’s and Richard Sherman looks to be heading to the suspension line as soon as Friday. So, Harbaugh may not have to worry about being his receivers being locked up, they may be able to run free.

Sarah Redden in the new rapping YouTube sensation. This 5-year old little girl is rap/singing about Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers going to the Super Bowl. This video is a bit more fancy than most home made YouTube videos. Not to mention they went all out with the fake tattoos, and can even pronounce “organically” correct. Check out the video below.
PEOPLE: THEY'RE THE WORST
After retweeting a death threat he received on Wednesday, it appears that San Francisco 49ers kicker David Akers has shut down his Twitter account.
The 49ers are preparing for Sunday's game against Seattle with the assumption that defensive end Justin Smith won't be available. Smith left last week's 41-34 victory over New England in the third quarter because of an undisclosed elbow injury and did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday. Smith's departure from the game nearly coincided exactly with New England...
A couple of weeks back, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was riding the bench as Alex Smith lead the team to the top of the NFC West.
Now, Kaepernick has them one win away from clinching the division and he has earned the admiration of 49ers fans across the world.
Check out this rather cute tribute rap song that a little 49ers fans did in honor of Colin:
After initially saying that after Colin Kaepernick became the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, it felt as if “someone took the handcuffs off me,” tight end Vernon Davis is now saying that he and Kaepernick are not on the same page.
Of course, if you looked inside the numbers over the past few games, you could have figured that out for yourself.
The 49ers beat the unbeatable Patriots last week and now have a chance to prove they are the Super Bowl favorite.
The season is coming to a close and I'm sitting at 142-82. That's over .600 but I can do better.

The Colin Kaepernick rap by five year old Sarah Redden is making its way into the hearts of San Fransisco 49er fans and the like, it has been going viral all over the internet.
Sarah raps about Kaepernick, the 49ers quarterback in the following video.
“Wearing No. 7 like Colin Kaep, talking Super Bowl wins, he’s bringing them back,” Sarah raps in the video, covered in fake...
San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois has been preparing all week to start in place of All-Pro Justin Smith on the NFL's second-ranked defense.
The 49ers remain uncertain whether that will actually happen Sunday night in a NFC West showdown against the Seattle Seahawks.
Smith's availability is in question after he missed practice Friday because of an...
Going on the road and beating the New England Patriots snapping a 20 game winning streak at home in December, earned 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick the award for NFC offensive player of the week award. Kaepernick, the controversial choice of Jim Harbaugh is making the man look like a genius at this point. Kaepernick led the 49ers to a 41-34 win and the second-year quarterback...
As reporters circled around Ricky Jean Francois in the 49ers locker room Friday, teammates Randy Moss, Colin Kaepernick and Mike Iupati each stopped by to call out good-natured questions from behind the crowd, drawing laughs all around. Nobody seems too worried about Jean Francois stepping in for stalwart defensive leader Justin Smith at Seattle on Sunday, particularly not Jean Francois.

The 49ers won last week and earned this spot, at least until they lose in Seattle this week. Then would Seattle be #1 even though you can’t trust them to win a single road playoff game, let alone 3 (4 if you include the neutral site Super Bowl)? Would it be the Patriots...
By a 5-year-old girl who really, really likes quarterback Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers.
Dashon Goldson has a stack of manila envelopes in his locker, filing away the paperwork every time the NFL has fined the 49ers’ Pro Bowl free safety. While he has heard from the league office more than a dozen times in his six-year career, the letters often had little to do with his hard-hitting ways until this season.
