Beverly Hills, 9021-ho: usc Head Coach Tim Floyd is accused of giving $1000 to Mayo on Rodeo
O.J. Mayo’s local fans may pronounce it “ROE-dio,” but Mayo knew exactly what Ro-DAY-o Drive is all about, and that’s BIG, BIG dollars (not cattle-roping). And according to Mayo-insider Louis Johnson, big money is exactly what Mayo received when he last sent his homies Johnson and Rodney Guillory to the Country’s ritziest city.
Allegedly, Floyd personally came to Beverly Hills and presented to Guillory an envelope with $1000 cash earmarked specifically as Vegas spending money for O.J. Mayo, who had just recently committed to the trojans.
Beverly Hills Chi — Wow! Wow!!!
Are you skeptical? Why would Floyd do his own dirty work, you ask? Because he doesn’t TRUST anyone else, that’s why. Why bring in another conspirator to the crime? It’s not always that easy to eliminate witnesses.
And as much as Floyd would like to say “See ya later, allegator,” Johnson may not go away that easily. Even though he has a shady, unsavory past, he has already been SUPPORTED in his previous allegations, apparently, by receipts and possibly phone records as well.
Johnson says that he is just trying to come clean, and that he is NOT trying to “take down” an entire University. But that’s exactly what his accusations could do. I mean, how could usc possibly claim that they didn’t know about this one? Floyd IS usc!!! They can’t blame a booster or agent for this one. This payment wasn’t gold — it was cardinal & gold.
Johnson has already reported this incident to the NCAA, FBI, and IRS. Does it sound like he’s just making it all up for publicity? Sounds a little more serious than that to me. The only question is, how the Hell did Renardo Sidney find out about this before everyone else did? At least that’s what people are suggesting, based on Sidney’s sudden bailout on his commitment to Floyd and sc.
Bet Floyd wishes he took that Arizona job NOW, although they probably would have fired him too, after hearing the latest news.
It would be a miracle if Floyd is still Coaching the trojans come next season — Mike Garrett probably already has all the scapegoat strategies all lined up. Hey — maybe Michael Cooper can coach the Women’s AND Men’s teams. That’s right — “The Stupe” can replace “The Dupe” with “The Coop.”
