Craig Robinson and USC? I hope not.

For those of you who haven't heard, Tim Floyd resigned from his position as head coach of USC's Men's Basketball team.

Floyd submitted a one paragraph letter of resignation to USC athletic director Mike Garrett, which read:

"As of 1 p.m. today, I am resigning as head basketball coach at the University of Souithern California. I deeply appreciate the opportunity afforded me by the university, as well as the chance to know and work with some of the finest young men in college athletics. Unfortunately, I know longer feel I can offer the level of enthusiasm to my duties that is deserved by the university, my coaching staff, my players, their families, and the supporters of Southern Cal. I always promised my self and my family that if I ever felt I could no longer give my full enthusiasm to a job, that I should leave it to others who could. I intend to contact my coaching staff and my players in coming days and weeks to tell them how much each of them means to me. I wish the best to USC and to my successor."

I can only imagine that USC will be the first of many, many schools with men's basketball head coaching vacancies to look at OSU head coach Craig Robinson.

It seems like there are a lot of reasons for Craig to stay. He has a great recruiting class coming in. He's working off the success he had last season. Possibility of taking OSU basketball to even greater heights this coming year... and who really wants to jump into the middle USC basketball mess?

What's your opinion, right now? I'm hoping to see this poll end up as a unanimous "no" vote, but I'm throwing it out to all of you just to check.

And as always, after you make your poll selection, feel free to yuck it up in the comment section.
