Good coach but lousy recruiter. Got to be able to recruit Memphis if you're going to be the HC.

Seemingly slow but steady downhill spiral after Calipari left.
Cats don't have owners. Cats have servants.

They haven't been able to hire the right coach. Hopefully Penny will be it.

Wasn't Tubby at Tulsa during their WAC years?

He was at Tulsa bu I don't know if they were in the WAC then. He still is a great coach but dosen't do the other things well (recruiting, PR, etc)

Here is an article that explains what went wrong

Now he needs to hire three good assistants and bring in the recruits.

Tubby is the Mark Richt of college basketball. Speaking of which, how much longer will the Richtster last at the U before fans turn on him?
