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 www.dailynews.com, 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.
