Carroll names sophomore Matt Leinart to be the starting quarterback after a heated training-camp competition with Matt Cassell and Purdue transfer Brandon Hance. Some are surprised at the decision. Leinart reportedly tells the coaching staff, "You're never going to regret this." Leinart is a first-team All-American in his first season as a starter. (Photo by Stephen Dunn/Getty Images)
