Low Profile

USC quarterback John David Booty said he likes staying out of the spotlight despite the obvious advantages of being in such a marquee position.
I dont see myself from the outside so I dont really see it. Im a Southern boy. Were definitely raised a little different than someone from Orange County. Ive been by myself a lot out here in Los Angeles. Im usually just hanging out with my roommates. I dont put myself in situations where trouble can arise.”

USC concluded its final practice before the Rose Bowl and it’s not looking good for wide receiver Patrick Turner.
“He’s still not full speed yet,” Pete Carroll said. “It’ll be hard to contribute.”

Silver Lining

Apparently there was one positive from the Stanford game as Fred Davis broke the USC record for receptions by a tight end.
“I found out from a reporter that I had broken the record after the Stanford game. I got the game ball after the game and now its at my moms house.”
There might be a Stanford fan out there willing to pay a lot of money for that ball.
