This is how I saw it shaping up in June of 2007:So Timmeh put together a great season (by those losers' standards of course) last year riding the talents of Pruitt, Young, and Stewart. Those three were typical TrOJie athletes ... dumb kids who were never really college material and was just getting some edumacation at a glorified community college. But still those were good kids who were Bibby recruits and made the best out of their opportunities.
Next year though it will all Timmeh's losers. He is going to have a motley crew - OJ2 & 4 losers - thugs/academic rejects who are already starting to project that disgusting aroma we get around Pom Pom's shady program.
So what I am getting at? I think Timmeh is going for a quick fix. There is no indication whatsoever that he has a methodical plan for the hopeless situation that is SuC basketball.
Methinks as soon as LSU fires its head coach - John Brady - Timmeh is going to jump ship and head over Baton Rouge. Remember Timmeh's roots? He started out as a head coach at University of New Orleans. He always wanted the LSU job in the worst way when he was toiling away at Iowa State but it never worked out. But now if he can put together another tourney run or two at Southern Cal (although the season could implode on his face next year when OJ2's selfish AAU/thugball hits a brick wall against other well coached team in college hoops), I think he may just run off to LSU.See what Wolfie has to say this week: There's been speculation in Louisiana that USC coach Tim Floyd could become the next coach at LSU. But Floyd reiterated tonight that USC will be his last job and he would not consider going to LSU because his friend, John Brady, is the coach.
``I have the best job,'' Floyd said. Guys that comment from Timmeh is classic coach-speak, non-denial, denial.
I think LSU will fire Brady at the end of this season and Timmeh will return to the Bayou.
