Baseball talk

Pete Carroll told me four different times he hit three homers in batting practice at the Coliseum (including back-to-back), so it must mean it’s important. Maybe he can play for the USC baseball team, which got swept by Arizona State over the weekend and lost 10 of its past 12 games.

About special teams

Pete Carroll is not thrilled with the long-snappers right now, which experience problems on field goals and punts.
“We’re not even a C- right now,” he said Sunday.
Backup kicker Jordan Congdon fluttered a 38-yard field goal during practice that was short and wide right during practice. One of the criticisms when he played at Nebraska was kicking from distance.

Quarterback update

Another one of those mixed days for the quarterbacks, as they dealt with a live-pass rush in full pads and experienced problems dealing with the blitz.
The practice ended with Mitch Mustain throwing about a 45-yard touchdown pass to Ronald Johnson. However, Johnson was so far behind the secondary, he looked like a punt returner waiting to catch the ball, which was high and short, but still catchable.
“It was an ugly throw,” Mustain said. “I felt like we made some Day 1 mistakes. That was frustrating.”
