LSU hires Johnny Jones

There will be no return to the SEC for Orlando “Tubby” Smith, at least not this year. LSU has hired Johnny Jones of North Texas Mean Green fame. Pair him with Johnny O’Bryant and then there is… ummm… a lot of Johnny stuff going on in Baton Rouge. I’ll stop now.

Maybe next time, Tubby.

    Will be interesting to see if Mr B Ball Hickey Jr stays or goes?

    Good news about Oriakhi. The bottom of the SEC doesn’t even want Tubby lol. He’s a winner they should of got him but I would think he wouldn’t be to interested in LSU. They can’t even give tickets away there for a dollar

    His name’s not Tubby, it’s Scrubby. As in the scrubs he recruited.

    8. So youre saying he will finish 4th or 5th in the Big Ten? Tubby has starter the season the last 3 years in the top 25-30 and at times craks the top 15, only to actually play decent teams (his non-conference is the weakest in the country) and finishes in the NIT.

    #9 – Also lost his most important player to season-ending injuries last 2 years. Imagine UK losing Brandon Knight in ’11 and Davis in ’12 – that’s what happened to Minny last 2 years.
