LOS ANGELES -- Some quick notes on Pete Carroll and FS Taylor Mays
Carroll on Mays returning for senior season: "He wanted to maximize his opportunity to be his best at the next level."
Carroll on QB competition: "To me, it is really clear right now. Aaron Corp came out of spring practice the No. 1 guy. But he wasn't that far ahead of Matt Barkley, which was a total shock to us."
On LBs: "Those guys played great in spring football and have played great when they've played in the past."
Carroll on Frankie Telfort, the incoming freshmen who had his career ended due to a serious heart condition: "This is a crushing report for Frankie, his family and for all of us."
Carroll on one thing he'd change about college football: "We'd have an awesome playoff system."
Mays on whether USC is vulnerable on defense: "We know what we have in the locker room ... we have so much potential."
