Pete Carroll talks about repeating as Champions (back in 2005)

New, comments

Here's an interview that Chris Meyers conducted with Pete Carroll back when Carroll was the coach at USC. It's from 2005, right before Pete was trying to guide his Trojans to a third straight National Championship (they split with LSU in 2003, then were #1 for the entire 2004 season and beat the Oklahoma Sooners 55-19 to win the repeat title). Following this interview, Carroll's Trojans went on to finish 12-0 and lost in the classic BCS Championship Game 41-38 to Vince Young's Texas team. Regardless, it's interesting to hear Carroll talk about maintaining that championship mindset and it's applicable to his team today.
