My point is that Memphis is not a job that lends itself to coaches with Tubby's ethics/recruiting style/lack of salesmanship. It just doesn't. A coach LIKE Pearl, Marshall, or Forbes is what many feel this program needs instead of someone like Tubby or Josh (a goody-goody).

Whether or not the fanbase gets behind Tubby is irrelevant to the fact that the administration seems out of touch with the Memphis basketball culture and the needs of the program.
Pearl has more resources at Auburn, and he's still stinking up the place. Year 4, final 4 baby. Pasties, tassels and all. Going to be a good time down in auburn, year 4, that's the ticket. Just say no to a g-string.

That's because the administration was looking in the wrong places and they were unwilling to give certain coaches control of the program like they would have wanted.

Shhhhh...the narrative is set.

No one else wanted the job but Pastner and Tubby.

Well I would have took it, but no one asked. I would have to have shaved my chest to get the pasties to stick though.

No, figured you were? He's apparently not Memphis good. He didn't get it done in 10 months, so no. Set to begin year 4.

Just because someone didnt like the hire, doesnt mean that you shouldnt support the hire and the program. If people only support the program when they agree with the hire, it is difficult to EVER get the support needed to move the program forward.

Fans help to propel the program forward. If we'd had 12K at each game, we'd have won another game, or two, & helped with recruiting efforts. Bashing the coach & players WILL NOT help the program. If you want Tubby to fail to prove that your opinion of the hire was correct, then you are NOT a fan/supporter of the program.

Not program or Tubby bashing. Memphis will only support winners. This forum is full of die hard fans, but we aren't the norm.. The only way to get fans to come is winning. If football goes 2-10 next year, attendance will implode. We do this with all sports. Memphis rode the Calipari days for a several years, then people stopped going.

It's simple. Put out a winning product and you'll see 12k in the stands....

Good lord. Memphis fans are no different than any other. And, I bought season tickets and attended most of the games this past year....so I support the PROGRAM.
Nope... we have more fair weather fans than most..

You've obviously never left Memphis..

I mean, every arena and stadium is full nationwide regardless if the team is winning or losing...

Been a lot of places. There is very little support here unless you're winning big. Not saying we're alone on this, but no one in the city gives two ***** about the Tigers unless we're winning. Except for this board, of course...

Pearl has more resources at Auburn, and he's still stinking up the place. Year 4, final 4 baby. Pasties, tassels and all. Going to be a good time down in auburn, year 4, that's the ticket. Just say no to a g-string.

Maybe, but it will still be year 4 with more resources. Pearl be chasing the coeds I guess? Taking him a loooooonnnnggg time.

I like Pearl as a head coach just as much as I did when Cal left. Auburn may have more $ than Memphis but that doesn't mean it's an easier job.
