They have yet to scratch the surface of the unethical and illegal recruiting practices that have been going on at usc athletic programs for several years. You can expect more and more recruits wanting to not get involved.

Just fire the damm coach and start from scratch...the reputation he has built in the program is one that will not allow USC to be able to recruit anyone worth mentioning. What a shame, 2 months ago, I said I was happy for USC and finally we would have a heated rilvary in basketball too, now this...fire floyd and Mike Garret - Garret first, this guys has absolutely ZERO control over the athletic programs. If anyone thinks the football program is safe of any upcoming NCAA violation penalties, I have some a planet for sale - any takers?

To tell his team not to shop around when he does is a total lack of respect and leadership. And speaking of leadership, Mike Garrett isn't stepping up either. He is getting the glory of hiring Pete Carroll but doesn't anyone remember that Carroll wasn't even on the interview list originally. We suffered a series of bad football coaches under Garrett.....Smith, Tollner, Hacket then second coming of John Robinsons. Floyd should be fired now but Garrett should have been fired a long time a go.

Everyone is coming down so hard on Tim Floyd about this whole situation and my daughters father was one of the men that left USC while he was coaching. So many other coachs have done what he has, it is just USC is such a big top name school that everyone will look at him wrong no matter what he says or does.
He is a good man and I believe he had to do what he had to do.
The men that left the team were not playing or not a good fit for the team in the first place. The team plays out of the key and I know personally that this is why my daughters father left.
Also we do have to remember that he has produced 3 NBA players in the past 2 years. That is a lot to say for a coach. He is not at bad as people think and I know him personally.

I can't wait until they dig up enough on (wannabe L.A. Mayor) Pete Carroll and that corrupt pigskin program. They have been bringing in real losers over the years (typically great athletes but deplorable human beings)!

Rob,

I will overlook the "I was happy for USC" comment because the rest of your comments were great. You know the Bruin code, no happy and no SUC together, ever... Not for ANY reason! ;)
