Too bad we have a bi-polar fan base

Right, it's the fans fault we lost by 71 points the last two games and have a 57th rated recruiting class for $3.1 million...

Ouch.

The recruiting staff make $1 million, so really $4+million.

Hmmmm...casting with a wide net.

How about we were all being led to believe we were Big XII bound?

Both your statement and mine can be true at the same time.

I'm not bi-anything, not that there's anything wrong with that.

IMHO Tubby could be the one of the worst fits for Memphis out of any coach we could have chosen. It's sad the guys in charge really thought he was the best option for $3 million. Bowen is clueless on basketball and it really shows.

Tubby was chosen based solely upon his reputation. At one time, he had the fire and energy to get the job done.

I completely disagree. Please step away from the hyperbole. At least Tubby won't get caught fooling around with a female co-ed, or be accused of shaving points, or pass/hold the ball for many minutes at a time without shooting (b4 shot clock). I can think of some worse fits, right off the top of my head.

Tubby's formula is different from what we have been used to.

He recruits 3 star kids that will buy in to his way of doing things. He gets them better and gets them to play as a team. His method should be a surprise to no one, and the fan base's reaction to his method should be no surprise to him. Doing things his way might take three years or so to show progress. The patience of the fan base may not last that long.

I think you're right but at some point in year 3 or 4 he will still HAVE to mix in a 'difference maker' to push the team over the top instead of just being a 'tough out'.

He hasn't been able to do it since his Kentucky days where these types of recruits were much easier to come by.
