Be warned, if you click play on the video below, you could be subject to a few audible obscenities when members Pete Carroll's Seahawks reach into a Gatorade cooler and find a fake snake.

But you'll also get to witness a bunch of grown men shrieking because Carroll put the snake there. And also managed to splice in some safe for work "Snakes on a Plane" footage beforehand. Point being here, though, is that the video's hysterical; maybe it doesn't guarantee on-field success for the Seahawks, but it does at least show that the team's having fun. Right?

Pete Carroll has fake snake pranking skills


This would be disappointing to a lot of coaches in the college scene, I am glad that you pointed this fact out and how disappointed we at SC was of Pete Carroll, especially the 2009 season. He was out coached 19 times in 9 seasons.

I thought I would see if I could find a few facts to support your position. Here they are.

1.  He is 96-19 (83.5%) in 9 years (2001-2008) as a college head coach (all at USC),

2.  The second best winning percentage of any current Division I coach with at least 5 years of experience.

3.  He is 62-14 in Pac-10 games, giving him an 81.6% winning mark (a league record).

4.  He reached 50 career USC wins faster than any head coach in Trojan history

5.  He has 35 victories over AP Top 25 teams (35-9 overall, 79.5%).

6.  From 2002 to 2008, his teams won an unprecedented 7 consecutive Pac-10 titles,

7.  Appeared in an NCAA-record 7 consecutive BCS bowls (including a pair of BCS Championship Games),

8.  Recorded at least 11 victories in each of those 7 seasons (an NCAA record)

9.  Finished ranked in the AP Top 4 in each of those 7 seasons.

10. His Trojans also set a no-longer-active NCAA record by scoring at least 20 points in 63 consecutive games.

11. He has gone 16-2 against traditional rivals Notre Dame and UCLA.

12. He is 29-1 in November (he won his first 28 November games)

13.  Also under Carroll, USC is the first school to have 3 Heisman Trophy winners in a 4-year span.

14. Carroll represent the winningest periods in Trojan history. He is 6-2 in bowl games, including 6-1 in BCS games.

15.  2009 season
For the first time since 2001, his young, rebuilding, injury-plagued 2009 USC team had an up-and-down season, going 8-4 overall and tying for fifth in the Pac-10 at 5-4 to earn an Emerald Bowl berth.

The Trojans beat 3 of the 4 ranked teams they played (Ohio State, California and Notre Dame, all on the road) and swept traditional rivals Notre Dame and UCLA. USC's defense was in the Top 25 nationally in scoring defense and pass efficiency defense.

Safety Taylor Mays was an All-American first team pick. He was a finalist for the 2009
Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year.

16. In 2009, he was named Coach of the Decade by Lindy's.

17. Under Carroll, USC is riding winning streaks of 31 home night games, 15 non-conference games, 14 non-conference home games and 11 non-conference road games (not including 7 neutral site contests).

Yep you are absolutely right he was out coached each and every time that a team had equal or better talent than he did.

I am sure there are other coaches that would like to be out coached in the same time period, with the winning percentage and the number of times he was out coached.

I am equally sure that a coach would love to have a 8-4 record in 2009, go to a bowl game with the injuries we had in that year. Having a 8-4 year and not appearing in a major bowl is under achieving at SC.

Oh yeah beating 3 ranked teams with the injuries we had. Oh boy really disappointing. Yep and on the road. Did they not have a freshman quarterback. Dang what a disappointment.

Pete Carroll has said from day one that if an opportunity from the NFL came along with the criteria he was seeking he would be moving on to the big league. Now the time frame might have been suspect, but then you would have to be his brain to know his exact motive for leaving at this time in his life.

Pete Carroll has fake snake pranking skills

Now let's see him "translate" that funny stuff on the field into winning some games.   I don't think that he will be anywhere above average coach in the pro's.  Whether you came blame him or not for the scandals that happened at USC, I do believe that he skipped town right at the time he knew something was going to go down with the NCAA.   He had inside word.   Remember how many times in the past his name was mentioned for either another college job or even in the pros?   He always was firm and said, "I am where I belong, and I am happy here at USC, Im not going anywhere."   And the year that the probations started and all the heat on USC from the NCAA, he picks up and jets to the Seahawks.  Tooooo Coincidental.   Not saying it wasn't a smart move, because it was, but it was still dirty. He IS better off with Seattle than he would be dealing with the NCAA at this time that is for sure.  Just shows how selfish he really is.  (not to mention USC getting another dirtbag in Kiffen---See 2-3 years from now how this guy will burn)

Pete Carroll has fake snake pranking skills

Wow, this is hi-LAR-ious. Almost as funny as the prank Pete pulled when he recruited blue-chip talent to a school where it's incredibly easy to get talent through the door, allowed that talent to run wild (no discipline on or off the field), won a lot of games with that talent, got his ass out-coached whenever the talent level of his opponts was anywhere NEAR that of USC (see: 2009 season), then skipped town one step ahead of the law to make a lot of money while his former program was hit with sanctions.

Sooooo funny!

Pete Carroll is a d-bag.

Pete Carroll has fake snake pranking skills

He was the same way while at SC. He once had a player pretend that he was angry and distraught, this player then pretend to jump off a building, however it was a fake of the guy.

It must be fun at practice and being around a good practical joker and this guy is your head coach.

There were a few others pranks that kept the team loose.

I don’t know how this will play out with the pros, but in college with him as the head coach it was excellent for almost 10 years.

I am one Trojan fan that will always be a Pete Carroll fan and wish him well in whatever he does or try to accomplish.
