Has nothing to do with age, work ethic, golf, or most of the things the dumb asses on here have spouted; it has to do with salesmanship, and I don't think Tubby and company are the best salesmen. Sales / recruiting requires a certain amount of bullshitting/ lying that they have a problem with.When you are trying to turn around a program, kids want to make the tournament, and short timers don't see that happening. So, you have to take kids that aren't one and dones, grad transfers. This is why Tubby's turn arounds have taken longer than others.

Well, you got the lead recruiter quoting bible verses on twitter, so there's that.

I'm assuming you meant recruiting = recruiter.

So.

It is unfair to expect him to have the energy, hunger, and drive of someone in his 30's, 40's, or even 50's. I give Tubby credit for toiling when most people his age draw Social Security and enjoy their well-earned leisure.

Does he use twitter like Norvell does?

I haven't seen anything from him.
