    Nice to see Seth layout the potential hypocricy in the OJ Mayo/Tim Floyd situation compared to Reggie Bush/Pete Carroll.

    Re: Seth Davis Column on Floyd

    Greed is not good! In reference to Floyd. He wanted to win so bad he created this situation...but as the article points out...he was paid to win! Tough job being a college basketball coach. Can't imagine dealing with all of these egos...teenage egos! Not fun!

    Weird that Walker was mentioned; must have forgot about Beasley.

    Re: Seth Davis Column on Floyd

    Thanks for the article.

    It's nice to read that Floyd has kept records detailing the contact with Mayo's people. Floyd is just too damn smart to give 1000 to this guy on a Beverly Hills street corner. I hope he lands somewhere other than the B12. Unless its for a certain school.....

    Floyd won't land anywhere in college. At least not a "BCS" school.

    Note to coaches: When a highly-touted recruit calls you and asks if you want him for a year, you say NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I disagree. Give him 5 years.

    Re: Seth Davis Column on Floyd

    The difference between Pete Carol and Floyd is Floyd is accused of giving the kid money. Pete Carol did not give Reggie Bush a dime. An agent gave Reggie Bush the stuff. So Floyd is a direct link. Carol did not know anything was going on. Well he might have but what can he do. I would think Floyd is smarter than to give a guy a thousand dollars.

    So Floyd would be 60, more than likely in rebuilding mode...I just don't see it.

    Re: Seth Davis Column on Floyd

    So when is the hypocritical NCAA going to go after Kansas State or Bob Huggins? Their selective outrage/investigations are a joke. If this occurred at ISU, we'd be toast.

    The NCAA takes a lot of heat, but IMO...This crap is a lot of one on one meetings. As long as the money is coming in and the recruits are being delivered...There is no proof because everybody is happy. As soon as somebody doesn't get what they want; they're ****** and only then do they squeal. Then and only then does the NCAA know where to investigate and dig deeper.

    Sure he didn't. And if he did, he sure as hell should have done something about it

    Kelvin Sampson immediately jumped into my head. Although his violations weren't nearly as egregious as this.. but he still seemed to have 9 coaching lives.
