Pete Carroll is no 'flake' ... He's just not dumb

Pete Carroll is a players coach, and true USC fans love him for it. The latest case in point from Scott Wolf's report in today's Daily News:
Going Hollywood: Actor Will Ferrell [a USC alum] made a surprise visit Thursday night during a team meeting dressed as the character from his current movie, "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby."

Perhaps more surprising, Carroll entered the meeting through a cloud of smoke and also dressed as a NASCAR driver before Ferrell entered from another part of the auditorium.

Of course Wolf writes for the Los Angeles Daily News at, a url that must drive the New York Daily News crazy ... LOL.

East coast media think Carroll is a flake for doing stuff like this, but they just don't get it. The man is brilliant. We've got people like Ferrell and Snoop Dogg, who appeal to college kids and 5-star recruits.

notre dame has idiots like Carson Daly and Regis Philbin at their pep rallies. As Reggie Bush says in his new ESPN Fantasy Football commercial: "That's dumb."
