No, Cal CHOSE to have a really short bench because his top 8 players were all 5 stars.

Really? Are you this ignorant or are you trolling....

Tubby really looks like he doesn't care.

If the ride at the Delta Fair spun as well as some are trying to spin orlando's recruiting this year. Then no one would have been injured and there would have been a line with a hour waiting list to get on.

Orlando knows he has a three year free pass and is not pressured to work hard until year four.

In 3 years, we are down $30-$40M in CBB revenue and per seat donations. Plus his $9M. If true, worst than B12 debacle. But I agree with your post. Tubby isn't getting it done in recruiting. Maybe on a couple of top 100 lists for 2017. 2016 was disaster.

Memphis is one of the few jobs where people call for your head before you coach your first game or complete 1 single recruiting period.

Granted most tiger fans don't share that view, but its commonplace on this board.

Some of y'all are NOT like a jukebox. You only sing one song, and nobody has to put a quarter in to hear it.

Jeez, give it a rest, Gert.

I know it is difficult for some, but use a little logic:

IF Tubby did not care and IF Tubby was looking to just collect a paycheck or get his son a job, he would have stayed at Texas Tech, he was already there, they loved him, they offered him a million dollars per year raise to stay and he could have gone off into the sunset doing very little and collected a paycheck and been appreciated there ..

Instead he came here to compete for a national championship. He may be old and he may not get it done here but to say he does not care or that he came here for the paycheck is lazy and ignorant.

Logic, on here, you've come to the wrong place.
