Second Guessing

It’s a bit of an esoteric point, but after the game, USC coach Pete Carroll regretted going for a touchdown on fourth-and-goal from the 10-yard line trailing 33-10.
“If I kick a field goal, its a different game. I screwed that up, Carroll said. “Thats something Ive got to correct. As I look back, I was impatient. But it was 33-10 at the time.
USC failed to score but it didn’t really matter because Oregon State botched the punt and allowed the Trojans to score a touchdown a few minutes later.

Carroll On The Loss

“We will always have a target on our back. It’s very difficult and every week you have to go out and play beautiful football. If you don’t, than you are giving the football away and that makes it very difficult. I am disapointed in the uncharacteristic play where we are not taking the ball off our opponents.”
