More fun and games with Pete Carroll and Will Ferrell

Will FerrellPete Carroll Adam Rose of the L.A. Times blog All Things Trojan put up the YouTube video of Pete Carroll's latest prank with Will Ferrell (as we did on Fab Forum since our own Mark Medina was also at the practice and witnessed it).

But Adam lists other pranks that have been pulled during USC practices and team meetings.

One of those took place on April Fools' Day this year, when Carroll had police come into a team meeting to arrest a player for abusing a freshman. Then he showed a video of the alleged abuse -- defensive end Everson Griffen knocking a teammate on his back during a routine drill.

Adam's list is worth a look.
