USC basketball should be resigned to its fate

Tim Floyd submitted his resignation Tuesday and Athletic Director Mike Garrett accepted it so fast he probably got a paper cut snapping it out of the fax machine.
The good news, of course, is that it’s only the fall of USC basketball, leaving the all-important work of preserving, defending and protecting the constitution of USC football.
What happened to Floyd was inevitable and the appointed hour of his departure was inconsequential. The fact Floyd handed a resignation news cookie to a paper in his home state, Mississippi, only proves he was loyal to people other than the players he coached until Tuesday at 12:59 p.m.
