USC men’s basketball coach Tim Floyd made a direct cash payment to a man who helped deliver O.J. Mayo to the Trojans program, according to Louis Johnson, a former member of Mayo’s inner circle.
Johnson, a one-time Mayo confidant, has told both NCAA investigators and federal authorities – including the FBI, IRS and U.S. Attorney’s Office – that Floyd gave at least $1,000 in cash to Rodney Guillory, a man who allegedly lavished Mayo with improper benefits while the guard starred for the Trojans.
No mention of this on the front page of the world wide leader. Seems to be a Yahoo exclusive at the moment.
I'm not doubting that this could be true, and if it is, well then holy shit.
Edit again for clarification: The story on coach Floyd is not from Dr. Saturday Or Shutdown corner. I think originally I intended to post something about one of the Yahoo blogs stirring up PC to the NFL rumors and then edited it to get the correct blog linked and lost my original text. Apologies to the crew at Dr. Saturday as I appreciate their fine work and will continue to frequent their blog.
I think it is easy for all Trojan fans to understand how touchy we get about PC to the NFL rumors, but it is always important to remain level headed when dealing with this kind of news.
