I think this was a major factor. Well-known, respected coach to stabilize the program with little risk of causing an issue as we entered into the B12.

Yeah. Had we known we wouldn't make the cut, we could've hired any slimeball we wanted to be our coach. Wasted opportunities.

Strict Liability.

Tubby was a name brand that would not get us in NCAA trouble. And Tubby wanted the job.

Couldn't we have forced him to get somebody who can actually recruit on the staff? We did almost double his salary and get him out of Lubbock.

I figure - given his age - that Tubby was intended as a short term hire and he is the polar Pastner.
