Fun in the Mud
On Saturday afternoon the USC Trojans got a chance to practice in the kind of wet, muddy conditions they might see if the rain some have forecasted for January 4th comes to pass.
Rather than fret about the very un-Southern California playing conditions, the Trojans reveled in what turned into an afternoon of playing in the mud.
The rain kept many family, friends and fans at home, thinning out what was becoming quite a crowd at practice each day. Still, several braved the elements, including relatives of offensive linemen Sam Baker, Fred Matua and Ryan Kalil. After practice the players met with them before boarding charter buses to head back to the team hotel in Century City.
