Play Of The Day

USC almost suffered a key injury during Wednesdays practice in one of the seasons more embarrassing moments.
Freshman tailback Emmanuel Moody broke free on a run, and in a practice tradition, was supposed to run all the way to the end zone without any defensive players following him. But assistant coach Dave Watson, who urged Moody to keep running, slipped on the wet turf and fell, with his feet upending Moody and knocking the back down hard to the turf.
Moody, already recovering from torn ankle ligaments that forced him to miss several games, slowly got up and appeared to be hurt before eventually jogging back to the huddle.
“I bruised my knee, Moody said. “He got me pretty good. I dont know what happened.
Watson, who yelled at Moody to “get up, said he knew Moody was not hurt.
“As an effort coach its my job to chase the back, he said. “Hes a tough guy. It was a minor collision. I tackled him with my feet like a soccer player.
