• Notes and video from Pete Carroll's Wednesday press conference

    Everyone has a Pete Carroll story. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll talked about a “championship season” before it even started. It’s hard to remember this now, after Pete Carroll spent nine years coaching the most successful program in college football and is now a game away from the Super Bowl in his return to the NFL, but there was once a time when Carroll was considered something of a joke. Pete Carroll said that Percy Harvin will meet with doctors today this afternoon about his recovery from concussion and will not practice today. In fact, when Carroll was hired as USC’s head coach in December of 2000, he admitted at his introductory press conference that he was “an unpopular choice,” and USC’s athletic director confessed that he had received a lot of angry phone calls from Trojans fans and boosters who didn’t think Carroll had what it took to lead their program. So what changed? Chris B. “With the talk about all the rah-rah stuff, it sort of misses the point of it,” says Spencer Torgan, a walk-on under Carroll at USC. But the Seahawks insist they will treat the game no differently than they did those against the Jaguars, Rams or Bucs or even as they would a July practice even if the prize for beating the 49ers would be the team’s second Super Bowl appearance in 38 years as a franchise. It’s that mentality treating each day, each game, the same as the next that they say got them here, and the one they say can take them to New Jersey on Feb. 2.
