    Pete Carroll Pulls Prank On Team

    Was browsing ESPN.com to kill some time. Found an article that contained a nice April Fool's Joke delivered by Pete Carroll to his team during a film session.

    [ame=http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-2331835380766227973&q=Everson+Griffen&ei=SjUbSJS1EZqarQKLi6m9Ag]Coach Carroll's April Fool's Joke[/ame]

    PS. Hopefully someday soon we can have athletes like this.

    Re: Pete Carroll Pulls Prank On Team

    This would have been funny too:

    "Hey guys...the NCAA has taken away all our FB scholarships because of that stuff that happened with Reggie Bush a few years ago. Y'all are welcome to stay on the team, as long as you can pay your own way..."

    Re: Pete Carroll Pulls Prank On Team

    I was eating lunch with some of the guys on April Fools and they said that during Chizik's talk at the end of practice, one of our Compliance Officers interrupted and announced that the NCAA had just passed a new by-law allowing 5 more spring practices to bring the total to 20. Made it totally believable--holding a "document", no smiles, and holding a calendar with the additional practices already penciled in. Apparently the jaws just dropped on some of the players who though they were halfway done already.

    Not quite as creative as Carroll's (or as funny), but still good.

    A few years ago Carroll played the prank when they had LenDale White storm off the field and go to a rooftop, then throw a dummy off the side like it was him jumping...

    That is insane. I can't believe they got away with that one. Pretty funny.

    Good video, hard to believe that coach Carroll was once at ISU (under Earle Bruce in '78)

    I also enjoyed [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJXkvj21JaA"]USC Walk-On Try-Outs With Brennan Carroll[/ame]

    Yes, they do have some interesting stuff on there. I enjoyed the Mic'd up videos as well. Kinda gives you a nice perspective into practice. That freshman offensive lineman did get just straight abused.

    Yeah, he does something every year. You would think they would start catching on by now....
