    Strange time to resign from a basketball coaching job isn't it?
    Must be the full moon!

    Good for USC!

    OJ Mayo was a amateur in name only, really a professional in waiting. I am glad the USC had the courage to run Floyd out of town.

    I am ready for the NCAA to get ruthless on coaches and restore integrity to the process. College basketball is tainted more today than perhaps at any time since the wave of betting scandals during the 1950's and early 60's.

    A message must be sent. If as a coach, you find out that one of your players took money outside NCAA laws, the kid should be immediately benched pending investigation and if the allegations are proven true by reasonable standards, the kid should be immediately cut from the team and his scholarship revoked.

    Any coach who fails to do this becomes as guilty as the agent who paid the kid and the kid who took the money. All these kids are briefed in detail on their obligations under NCAA rules as a condition of accepting their scholarships.

    You or I breech essential terms of a contract worth $500,000 to $250,000 and getting fired would be the least of our worries. Civil court for return of contract value would be a very real possibility.

    Here's the link to the ESPN story. This is the first I had heard of Floyd paying someone money to steer Mayo to his team.

    That's a very corrupt thing to do.

    Again, I applaud USC for firing him. The official word is he offered his resignation to the AD. But common sense says he was told to do it, so he was fired.

    I hope this is the tip of the iceberg. This crap of pseudo-agents with the AAU circuit must be crushed hard.

    There is a lot of funny stuff surrounding USC football program also, ala Reggie Bush.

    Tim Floyd will never coach a college team again. You simply CANNOT do that sort of thing and be OK. The NCAA has got to ban him, pretty much like they did Kelvin Sampson.

    Eddie Sutton recovered from similar problems and had a nice coaching career, even after the pay-to-play stuff at Kentucky came to light.

    I can see Floyd coaching somewhere in a year or two, may not be a big name program or in a big name conference, but someone will want to hire him.

    When I first heard about Floyd's resignation, I thought that Floyd was the sacrificial lamb for the USC athletics department. It's a way for USC to tell the NCAA how much they believe in compliance, standards, blah-blah-blah. All the while, the Reggie Bush matters and Pete Carrol get a free pass.
