Uninformed, clueless basketball fans from MN with unrealistic expectations want Tubby Smith to leave. The rest of the people, who are back here on planet earth, appreciate coach Smith and what he'd done to our program. Think of pre-tubby seasons. Highlights involved watching our big men shoot half court jump shots and getting a good laugh in (thanks Spencer); but now, we actually expect to win 20 games per season (compared to 9) and to see great recruiting classes year in year out. People forget that building a program takes time, and we've put in the foundations of a solid program. Two years in a row being in the top 25, even if we did fall back out eventually, is a huge improvement over what we had. This year, we could've been top 10 if we didn't lose our two veteran guards.
I don't know what people expect? Do you want to see Tubby yelling in the face of his Freshman guards because we're not winning? They're freshman, come on guys, they weren't recruited to be starters at this age. There's only so much he can do from the sideline, veteran players have to take responsibility of these losses as well as the coach.
In a nutshell: we're happy to have him as a coach and should not even be considering letting him go. Don't listen to moron fans.
