Yes. I think we should fire him.

The message we send is this: We are BB fans who care about our Memphis brand and our culture of hoops. Do not tell us that finishing fifth in a lackluster conference--one in which our conference champion got a 6 seed-- should be enough for our expectations. And, btw, two blowout demoralizing losses on national TeeVee were Two too many.

Can't really fire him with all that ga-run-teed money hanging out there.

Unless something really strange happens Tubby has three more years to build it his way (somebody cue Frank Sinatra) and at the pace he's moving it looks like he may need all three.

Completely waste year1, pretty much start over year 2...........

I see you've gone over the edge.

No, the message would be that we have no patience for the rebuild that is required. The candidate pool would resemble Josh Pastner and Larry Porter.

The "expectations" thing is that the experts looked at our team and said 5th place. We came in where the experts thought. It's fine to not accept that going forward. But to fire a coach over it is silly.
