After this weekend's drubbing of Oregon State, Pete Carroll and the Trojans remain undefeated in the month of November. Since his arrival in 2000, Pete Carroll has a perfect November record. Up next: Trojans visit the California Bears, Saturday, 5:00 p.m. PST on ABC.
Light Practice, Cooler Days
In preparation for playing at California this weekend, the Trojans practiced on Cromwell Field, to get the feel off artificial turf under their feet. Practice was at 5:00 p.m., but with the recent daylight savings clock change, the field was cool and almost dark when all was said and done.
Upbeat and Loose
Players were easy and light on their feet as practice lasted just about 45 minutes. The players were still intense, but focused on having fun.
The defense continued to swarm the football, riding the momentum of last week's practice and game against the Beavers. Cary Harris broke up a pass as the ball entered the receiver's hands.
John David Booty continued to get his timing back- working on passes to Patrick Turner, Joe McKnight, Fred Davis andVidal Hazelton. McKnight, Chauncey Washington and Stafon Johnson worked in the offensive backfield.
Bright Future Ahead
Mitch Mustain had a nice practice with the scout team.
No major injuries to report, Alfred Rowe was on the sidelines, nursing the sprained ankle he suffered in the OSU game, Broderick Green is back in a boot and Sam Baker continues to try to recover from his hamstring injury.
