About The Beavers

USC coach Pete Carroll was asked today about the Pac-10’s bowl record and focused on Oregon State.
“You saw an Oregon State team come alive this season. They had a slow start, got going, and played great football throughout the year, and for whatever reason, that game for us was one that was not respected in a sense, and Oregon State proved that anybody who thought that was wrong about the year they had.”

Turnover Margin

Versus!

It’s now 4-0 for the Versus Conference in bowl games. Too bad it does not make up for the 0-4 on Sept. 13 against the Mountain West Conference, especially from USC’s perspective. That helped keep the Trojans from earning national respect and being a serious top-two contender. Now the pressure is on Caesar to avoid being the only Pac-10 team to lose.

More On Havili

USC coach Pete Carroll spoke a little bit more today regarding Stanley Havili’s situation.
“In the system of accounting for the grades, it took a long time for his grades to get through. Three of our guys are in the same situation. One reason or another. It took
awhile. He came up short units-wise, so he can’t play.”
