Ex-Trogan Timmeh Turns on SUC, Hints At "An Underground Economy"

Newly employed Floyd is flapping his mouth and throwing more than implications toward his former boss.

I wonder if Timmeh let UTEP know about his position on recruiting during his interview?  He clearly doesn't feel the need to hide his belief that star players like OJ2 come at a premium.

 "And there is an underground economy in our sport. And I'm not saying anything about the case. Nothing about the case. But if anybody thinks that O.J. Mayo, with his talents, was bought for $1,000, you're out of your damn mind. It's just absolutely preposterous. And my name being associated with the recruitment of O.J. Mayo...It makes no sense."

 

He then voiced his opinion over the basketball program being offered as the sacrificial lamb.  Taken in context, this scud clearly implies that SUC wasn't just paying for basketball players...

 "When the investigation turned to 'institutional control,' I felt like the 'institutional control' portion was directed at [the basketball program]. I didn't like the tone or the approach [of the investigation]," Floyd said.

Cheat on.

UPDATE (N): Quick note here. While it is amusing to see Timmeh trying to throw Garrett under the bus it is pretty funny to see trying so hard to disassociate himself from the recruiting of OJ2. It is especially funny because Timmeh seemed to be in center of what was (as one of our old posters put it) a Trojan "fairy tale" (with a "pitch" from Cheatey Petey to OJ2 per Timmeh's request). GO BRUINS.
