From the Daily News:
Clearly, Floyd knew the large role Mayo's handler, Rodney Guillory, had with his star player and he worried about it becoming a public issue. Maybe he also did not want the media to get wind of Guillory's unlimited access within the program.
But Floyd never did enough to rein in Guillory, obviously fearful to upset his star guard. He constantly tried to pump up Mayo to reporters, telling them of his leadership skills and maturity, but it often seem contrived in conversations.
When Mayo punched teammate Daniel Hackett and broke Hackett's jaw during an offseason pickup game, Floyd deliberately lied about the incident to keep Mayo's image clean.
In the meantime, Guillory could be found in the basketball offices, the practice gym and the Galen Center for games. If you asked questions about his presence, you'd often get a shrug in reply, which meant Guillory was a necessary evil to secure Mayo.
And that led to Floyd's downfall. His personality changed because he wanted to do whatever it took to make USC an elite program. The problem was Floyd willingly ignored all the caution signs for a player who really changed nothing.
Uhm, so the question becomes why did Wolf wait till now to tell us Floyd lied? When did he find out Floyd lied? If he had know about this before why did he not report it?
From now on why should we believe any of the BS coming out of the mouths of Trojan coaches and administrators? For months/years we have been reading spin all over Southern California's traditional media about what a great kid OJ2 was. Why change it now?
So should we believe the PR nonsense we hear about Petey and his football team via the Trojan spin machine about their character and contributions to the community?
