Matt Jones spoke with former UK head coach Tubby Smith at the Barbasol Pro-Am. The two played together, along with John Michael Montgomery and Rick Dees, and the gang won the whole doggone thing.

Jones caught up with Tubby to talk about his time in Lexington, and he spoke with Montgomery and Dees.

“We really love Kentucky,” Tubby said. “Obviously there’s no better basketball fans, or better fans period anywhere in Kentucky.”

Tubby is the man. The dude won a championship for UK and although it didn’t work out long term we were lucky to have him.

    His recruiting abilities didn’t match his ability to coach. It be fun to see him as an assistant.

    Like to see Cal hire him on as defensive coordinator

      Cal’s offense and the ball line defense? What a great combination.

      3 and D teams have hurt us with Cal in the past and the glaring weakness of the ball line is it has a tendency to leave wide open 3s.

      True Greatcatfan. I was being a bit facetious.
