The last thing this site (or any site) needs right now is a Tubby debate. The only name more likely to have the angry folks come out of the woodwork more than Barack Obama is Tubby Smith. But news is news and stories are stories, so this article dealing with Tubby’s struggles this year at Minnesota is worth mentioning. Apparently this year has been a rough one for the man from High Point, and the Gophers are set to not make the NCAA Tournament and take a step back in the conference. Smith had a great first two years (for Minnesota) at his new job, making the Tournament and bringing some excitement to the ugliest arena in America. But the heat is coming and with recruiting hitting a lull, things are not great.
I root for Tubby Smith…always have and always will. He is usually at his best when people have given up on him so I hope he turns it around soon
