Mays recalls start without a safety net - Daily Breeze
A year ago, Taylor Mays was a confident if not wide-eyed freshman pressed into service as a starting free safety when USC played its second game of the season against Nebraska.

When Mays faces the Cornhuskers again Saturday, this time he figures he'll know what he's doing...

..."It's crazy," Mays said after Thursday's practice. "It's night and day. Now I feel like I know where I'm at on the field, like I'm able to understand the offense and I'm able to make more plays on the ball, be more around the ball, and have a lot more confidence when I'm out there."

The emergence of...Mays enabled Coach Pete Carroll to have Pinkard play more of a role at cornerback. That plan went awry...
