    USC has a new coach

    USC hires O'Neill to replace Floyd as coach - NCAA Division I Mens Basketball - CBSSports.com News, Fantasy, Video


    Seems like a pretty decent hire, and a guy that won't get them in recruiting troubles.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    very smart hire..


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    So does that mean that OJ Mayo just bought USC a new coach?

    Re: USC has a new coach

    Surprised he took the job. After all, USC just lost 4 starters to the NCAA draft, had 8 recruits back out of their committments, and will very likely face recruiting restrictions, loss of scholarships, and a ban on postseason play. Tim Floyd sure made quick work out of destroying the USC basketball program.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    It's pretty simple. Pete Carroll is smart enough not to get caught red-handed. Tim Floyd isn't.

    O'Neill isn't exactly a family friendly coach, but I don't know that he does any "negotiating" with players to get recruits either.

    I thought it was a pretty uninspired choice. Reminds me of the Tommy Amaker hiring to clean up the university's image. Oh well, I'll enjoy them sucking.
