Last week, pictures were revealed of Maualuga wearing a bright pink thong over his workout sweats during a Trojans football practice. I have no problem with men who wear pink (I also wear it on occasion) but I do, however, have a problem when it's in the form of undergarments meant for use by women only.
Maybe he was in a slump, like New York Yankees first-baseman Jason Giambi.
My hunch is that he either lost a bet or was trying to lighten up the team's mood during practice. Pete Carroll certainly has a knack for pulling pranks on his fellow Trojans, although not everyone appreciates the humor involved.

Personally, I would like to see Will Ferrell involved in more pranks.
