07:20 AM ET 02.03 | Considering the number of high-definition sets in use on Sunday night, there's a pretty good chance millions noticed the big scratch on Pete Carroll's face. It was, after all, pretty hard to miss. Many people on Twitter wondered what happened. ... After the game, our own Peter Schrager asked Carroll about it on FOX Sports Live, and the answer was pretty much what you'd expect from Carroll. "I did get hit returning a kickoff in practice this week," Carroll said with a chuckle. "I jumped in to give Percy (Harvin) a break, trying to do the right thing, and Derrick Coleman grabs me and (Chris) Maragos comes in and gives me a shot in the head. We covered kicks like wild men tonight so it was OK. If I contributed to that in any way I'll take the hit."

I do enjoy seeing the smile on Coach's face...

3rd coach to win a national collegiate championship and a Super Bowl. None too shabby.

I recommend the Cowboys owner step on the gridiron and try returning kickoffs in practice every week. ;-)
