USC hires... Kevin O'Neill?

Kevin O'Neil was 19-15 in one year at Arizona, and 72-48 in five years coaching the muppet rec league team.

So, let's recap. USC head coach Tim Floyd reportedly takes the same position at Arizona earlier this Spring. Only the next morning we find out he didn't actually take the job and was spending a relaxing evening at home thinking about it. Arizona goes on to hire Xavier coach Sean Miller.

A couple of months later, despite the fact there was some mild turmoil already which he hadn't been fired for, Tim Floyd resigns from USC. Was he forced to resign? Most likely. Was it two and a half months after the end of the season, when the coaching carousel has already passed? Most definitely.

So USC hires former-interim-Arizona coach Sam The Eagle Kevin O'Neill, because, hey, he's a coach with Pac-10 experience. That's all you need, right? Besides, Jay John is busy finally winning games again as an assistant up at Cal-Berkeley.

If you ever needed definitive proof that USC is punting basketball for football, this has to be it.

Maybe O'Neill will prove me wrong. But let's face it, the poor guy is walking into a NCAA hornet's nest.
