USC Coach Drills Team on Current Events

12/30/2008 5:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The USC football team had to watch some "special" game footage yesterday -- after their coach got wind of their massive brain fart of a performance on TMZ.

There's a post on a USC football website detailing yesterday's team meeting where coach Pete Carroll, "showed the video ... giving the players plenty of opportunities to laugh at each other and also offering a teachable moment. He reviewed some current events with the players, including Biden's role as the next VP and Blagojevich's scandal."

Carroll was also quoted as saying, "Our players were clearly not on their game last night at Lawry's ... We've got some things to work on."

The Trojans are scheduled to pound Penn State into oblivion during their Rose Bowl matchup on New Year's Day.

2 really sad parts to this story. 1, these guys are most likely all on scholarship. What a waste and or scam. 2. They all probably voted for Obama without even hearing any issues or knowing any facts. Apparently they didn't know any facts. I think it's safe to say that the term student-athlete doesn't apply at USC.

Mr. Tire Biter    

Except for maybe the Ivy Schools they answered the same as most college kids their age.

The part you got right was USC destroying Penn State like all the other hapless Big Ten teams that come out west for the Rose Bowl.

they actually weren't bad    

A lot of college students probably don't know a lot about current affairs. I know that when I was in college I concentrated on studying and didn't have a lot of time to pay attention to current affairs, even though it has always interested me. That said, I know I would have known who Joe Biden is. At least TMZ is right about them pounding PSU. That day they'll be my favorite team, the University of Whoever Plays Penn State!

Funny how the haters forget that these are typical football players that every school has, especially State Penn, oops, I meant Penn St. At least TMZ was smart enough to target a prominent team like USC that people actually care about hating. Just like any celebrity, we love to hate them because their success makes the average idiot feel incompetent about their own lack of success. Jeez, isn’t fun writing anonymous comments about these 300lb guys that could whoop just about anyone’s ass? Both USC and Penn St. are guilty. But…I guess Penn St. needs any excuse to feel confident about the Rose Bowl? I have mad respect for the Lions, but I think we should see how the football players play FOOTBALL on Thursday which is what they do best, instead of judging them on a 2 minute, edited, video-bite designed to perpetuate sensationalism amongst the common drones of society. Maybe we should start criticizing the engineering major for not being able to lead the country in defense? Hell, intelligence and athleticism are both talents, so why pick and choose what is honorable and what is foolishness just to fit our own selfish insecurities? Funny how Athletes get paid so much for entertaining us with their physical, and NOT mental talents…Yet some idiots pick them apart for it…I guess they just couldn’t make the grades to get into USC? May the best team win, and I’ll be happy just to see what these athletes do best…PLAY FOOTBALL!

When I was college age I really couldn't have cared LESS about current events or the news either. You're supposed to be blistfully ignorant when you're young! Ahh...to be young and clueless again.

If you people think that saying "they are in college" is an excuse (especially to the idiot #8, sorry buddy, I don't know what Community College you failed out of, but this is anything BUT typical), and even more so to the ones that said they didn't know these things when they were in school....this is easily a HUGE part of everything that is wrong with this world. Makes me wish that stupidity was fatal!

Are you kidding me? TMZ chooses favorites in College Football games? I think that's almost more ridiculous than the stupid USC football players!
