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.

Was i shocked when i saw the video....you bet...but not really.....i don't care if they play football, baseball, tennis or basketball...i don't care if they are not athletes at all.... it is a sad state of affairs when kids (and yes they are kids) don't know what is going on in the world. i don't expect them to be able to talk about what is happening in the middle east. but they should know who will be running the country (whether or not they or anyone else voted for them). kids are like this today because we allow it. we laugh at the fact that they don't know anything....but we are not fixing it. stupid athletes are nothing new....but every year it gets sadder. we really have our priorities screwed up. the saddest part of the video was the kid who said i am just a meathead....i don't konw....if we don't have expectations for the kids today...then why should they.....I don't care who wins the game.....the loss is already pretty great......

I'm amused that so many people are calling these football players kids as an excuse as to why they are so ignorant. Obviously they have never had a tendency to open a newspaper and probably voted for Obama with no kind of info on the issues.

Coach should be embarassed!!!!

I guess it's understandable,though. USC is obviously happy being known for cranking out modern day "Gladiators" that get scholarship for runnin the field ,and not for the students that work really hard to get a degree. But then their parents obviously don't care how dumb their babies are as long as they get in the NFL.
