Floyd Has Been Here But Not With OJ

By Bob Holtzman - November 01, 2007

LOS ANGELES -- USC has no seniors and just three juniors on its roster which could make some coaches very nervous and likely explains why the Trojans were picked sixth in the Pac-10 Conference preseason media poll. Coach Tim Floyd even admitted his past experiences with young teams weren't the best -- citing a young team at Iowa State in his last year and a team at UTEP, which both didn't do so well.

"But we never had a talent like OJ Mayo," Floyd said about his freshman guard.

Floyd said it also helps that so many college teams are younger now than in the past, citing the three NCAA Tournament opponents USC faced last year, Arkansas, Texas and North Carolina, and how none of them started a junior or senior.
