    USC and Floyd

    USC punishes itself for violations occurring under Timmy. Too bad he always thought the grass was greener elsewhere. His time with the Bulls was a complete disaster and his return to college ends in controversy.

    Re: USC and Floyd

    My assumption is that USC is doing all of this to maybe hide things with the football program, but I could be completely wrong.

    Love the headline on MSN- USC "severely" punishes men's hoops team. Those punishments seem a little light if allegations of payments are true.

    He left Iowa State for what was at the time one of the most high profile coaching jobs in the world in any sport and a ridiculous pay increase. Good for Tim and any Iowa State basketball coach who is held in such high regard and can make such a move. Having that happen only means our coach is extremely talented and our basketball program is doing very well. Holding ill will or thinking he should regret it doesn't make any sense to me.

    What about a certain Iowa State football coach who left for a more high profile job and nearly a 100% pay increase? Where is your "Good for Gene" post???


    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.

    A few of us have said "good for Gene." I'm happy for him, and happier for us. That worked out nicely.


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

    Maybe you never heard about the rumors that Timmy had a meeting with 'ol Roy Williams at an AAU tournament in Vegas before he left for Chicago then. If they are true you might not have such high regard.

    I've heard that before, what I think was Floyd was a patsy or a sacrificial lamb so the NCAA wouldn't further investigate the football program. (cough, cough Reggie Bush and some other things).

    The situation with Floyd personally giving $1000 to Mayo's handler is a bit fishy:


    1. Floyd wouldn't of done that personally if there was a transaction
    2. $1000??? I'd bet it would of been more than that.

    Keep in mind this is 100% opinion. I have no sources, evidence, etc.

    I, too, find it interesting that Floyd would be ******* dumb enough to hand deliver the money himself. And $1,000 is a little low according to the movie Blue Chips.

    I'd agree. If I were a Blue Chip looking for some cash from a school my minimum would be 50K.

    And just think of the inflation that has happened since then. I highly, highly doubt Floyd (or any coach) would be stupid enough to risk their job in that manner for that small amount of $.

    Most likely the $1,000 payment in question was just one of many installments.

    The big difference between the two that you seem to be missing is that Floyd actually produced some good results at ISU for ISU...Chizik not so much.

    I think most of us realized that Chizik saw ISU as a stepping stone (which I personally have no problem with) but we just expected that he would need to produce good results at ISU for ISU before he would be given the opportunity to move on.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    "Patsy or sacrificial lamb"? Sorry, not buying that.

    Floyd has always been one to, shall we say, push the envelope...even at ISU. If you think he is as clean and pure as the wind-driven snow then you are sadly mistaken.
