It's not just here, it's ANY program that aspires to crack the Top 25 and compete for conference titles and NCAA bids. In spite of the fact the TS is a fine human being, his recruiting strategy just doesn't get it done.

I think once the hire was made, we all wanted him to be successful. Bumping this does nothing.

If you're going gravedigging on threads to stir crap, do it on the smack board.

Don't necessarily think anyone was stirring crap up...Everything looked pretty civil so far. Carry on though...

The primary reason people grave dig is to rub people's noses in it. The chosen timing ("The Great Tubby Limbo" from my armchair) was also no accident IMO.

It's still valid, but this thread turned upon that bump to being a primarily smack based venture.

http://ferrall.radio.cbssports.com/2013/...ight-move/

“I think the big problem that people had here, was that while he brought the program back to respectability it never matched the great expectations that people had,” Rand said. “The win over UCLA on Friday night was the first NCAA Tournament win of his entire tenure in six years here. He never finished above .500 in Big Ten, never had a Top 5 finish in the Big Ten. There’s probably a 70/30 split here right now with the 70 percent being happy with this move.”

By the way, why are you talking about Pitino Jr.? He was a worse hire than Tubby for Minnesota. But it doesn't change the fact Tubby is a bad hire for Memphis.

Since 1975 (modern era of college hoops), Minnesota has a 44% winning record in the B10. If you exclude the vacated seasons from their scandals, they have a 33% record in the B10. Tubby had a 43% record there. Heck, Clem was cheating and he was their best coach in the history of the program - and he only won 46%.

To set the bar at 50% in the B10 for Minnesota is ridiculous. They've had 2 seasons in the last 20 years above 50%.

They've made 7 NCAA tourneys that were not vacated. Tubby has 3 of those. Haskins was their most successful coach. (Of course, that ended with his 7 year show cause.) After Clem, Tubby is the only one to have any success there.

So, in other words, he was great coach at a crummy job but was not as crummy as some of the other crummier coaches?

Tubby made the NCAA tournament three times in all of his years at Minnesota, after having been declared a top tier coach and a "home run" hire by the national sports media--and how much he was under-appreciated as the great coach he was at Kentucky.

In two of the three NCAA tournaments he took Minnesota to, he lost in the first game. He had very good talent at Minnesota and couldn't win more than 4 out of 10 games in the Big Ten? And he only won two NCAA games in his entire time there? And both of those wins were in ONE tournament season? That's supposed to be considered as a great coaching job?

Compare it to Pastner's NCAA tourney record at Memphis. He went to the NCAA tourney four times. How many times did Pastner lose in the first round of the NCAA Tourney?

And I agree Pastner was not a good coach. So, why should I agree that Tubby is? He lost two-thirds of his first round games.

Orlando took advantage of a Sr class at UK which had played in the NCAA title game two out of the past three years. Funny he did not run off those players to get "HIS" type players. Then let the team go through their paces and the Sr class won their second NC in their 4 years. He lived off the UK name and got some recruits but not the same as the previous coach or the coach after him. The record slowly declined over the next few years.

Then he goes to Minnesota and lived off his resume at UK for a couple years. Then he was unable to get top quality player there and made the NCAA based on being in a P5 Conference.

Went to TT and never had a decent recruiting class and was able to finish around 500 in conference and used the Big 12 coat tail to get an NCAA bid.

I think this hire will bring some back the first year, although not as many as the "sexy" hires.
At the VERY least, it will stop the bleeding when it comes to those of us (myself included) who were considering dropping their tix this year.

well, no.
