    Tim Floyd

    Will Tim Floyd go back to USC? I have been kinda following him at UTEP, and I thought he might be there for the long haul, what with the class coming in next year and all. What think you?

    So USC realizes that they cant win without cheating. Bring back Floyd. Bring back Pete Caroll next. Have the $$ ready for the next OJ Mayo. Have the homes ready for the next Reggie Bush.

    He's a heck of a coach, but I think he's always played loose with the rules , not just with OJ Mayo

    Re: Tim Floyd

    It is about times he changed jobs again. I dont know how USC could bring him back. Maybe he is just trying to get his name out there.

    This. I don't remember all the details about Floyd and why USC departed ways (damn ol' age). But has there ever been a coach who was forced out or escaped before the mob came for his head? Wouldn't this be like McDermott coming back or Steve Alford going back to Iowa Chitty?

    Not even close. He was winning at USC, but got caught paying OJ Mayo. It was never proven but

    lol, well besides the winning part it's pretty close. There was a reason he left USC and that was to save his name and save USC. So it would be like me having an affair with our nanny, I get caught, and then bring the nanny back to work after the dust settles. It would be great if it would work, but it sure wouldnl't look good.

    But now a days nothing surprises me.

    Not true. Lubbock, Amarillo, Midland-Odessa all compete for worst in the country ahead of El Paso.


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Until further notice, the Big 12 tournament is best. There's an experience here. Not just the teams -- the feel, the vibe, the establishments. Iowa State not only won the pregame -- filling the nearby Power & Light District -- it won the whole damn scene.
