    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!

    Re: USC has a new coach

    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."

    Re: USC has a new coach

    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.

    Re: USC has a new coach

    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.

    Re: USC has a new coach

    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.
