USC Morning Buzz

The top candidates for the men’s and women’s basketball jobs are playing today, which is significant because as soon as their teams lose, USC can officially pursue them. Pitt coach Jamie Dixon faces Wichita State at 10:40 a.m. (PDT) at TBS.

And Texas Southern coach Cynthia Cooper faces Kansas State in the first round of the WNIT at 5 p.m. (PDT).

Dixon and Cooper are the frontrunners right now no matter how hard Tim Floyd wants the men’s job.

    Why would Pat Haden inflame the NCAA by hiring a proven cheater in Cynthia Cooper?

      Proven Cheater? What’s the dirt on her?

      • gotroy22

        She was caught paying players among various rules violations and her university (Prairie View) was placed on 3 years NCAA probation.

        • Golden Trojan

          Yeah, not good.

    wolfman, you are one RUTHLESS VATO!!! perpetuating this rumor of Dixon coming to southern cal would be laughable if the Dummies around here weren’t so gullible and dumb!! what’s your next trick, are you gonna find a bag lady on Figueroa and tell she has been named Ms. America???

      Spot on bucket, Dixon plays in the northeast which is hot for basketball and he’s an 8th seed. If he and his wife are dying to come back to LA would be the only reason to leave Pitt. Hey Floyd had it going till the OJ Mayo-naise thing forced him out, hire Floyd back.

    Why are we supposed to be so convinced about Dixon as the best candidate? The guy’s about to lose by double digits in the 1st round with a bad offensive team. His teams seem to always under-perform in the tourney. If anything, Floyd showed he can win at SC and who knows where the program would be today if he hadn’t left and had gotten a chance for continuity recruiting.

      Exactly, if Floyd wants to come back why not, he was starting to have success at SC. Pitt got embarrassed, what’s Dixon got that’s so special?

        plus, tim floyd doesn’t start drunken fights, he stops them

        [crap -- i wanted to post a link to that old video of floyd intervening when the two chicks got into a chair fight at the casino, but i can't find a working clip of that video anywhere]
