Monday Morning Report

Gary Klein in the LA Times:
  • X-rays of linebacker Thomas Williams' knee show damage, but extent yet to be determined.
  • Pete Carroll: "[Freshmen linebackers Rey Maualuga and Brian Cushing] probably maybe a little bit ahead of schedule of where we hoped."
  • Carroll will wait for Williams and Oscar Lua injury reports before deciding whether Maualuga will start Saturday.
  • Defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis: ends Frostee Rucker and Lawrence Jackson helped throw Cal quarterback Joe Ayoob off his game by penetrating into the backfield and hitting his arm.
Scott Wolf in the LA Daily News:
  • Fresno State coach Pat Hill previously "furious" with USC over past scheduling incidents.
  • Carroll noticed the Trojans were low key before the Cal game and even during the week
  • Carroll: "The penalties didn't impact the [USC vs. Cal] game," Williams injury "wasn't a typical knee injury," Maualuga and Cushing "both will play regardless of who we start."
