"Tubby's our basketball coach"

    The Kentucky AD's comment says nothing about whether Tubby Smith will return next year.

    ''Tubby's our basketball coach,'' athletic director Mitch Barnhart told The Associated Press on Monday. ''He's done a great job of representing the platform of Kentucky basketball. We'll always look to make adjustments to the things we've got to do to get better. Tubby and I will do that collectively.''

    All he said is that Smith is currently the coach. We knew that.

    Translation: Tubby's agent will be involved in negotiating a buyout package.

    But is Barnhart gonna "crown his ass" or "let him off the hook."

    Quite a subplot for the tournament.

    I for one hope they replace Tubby and find someone who will put them right back where they belong ... NCAA probation.

    I hope they fire Tubby, replace him with some beloved former white player like Travis Ford or John Pelphrey and then the team goes immediately into the shitter and has to play in the NIT for three consecutive seasons...

    I don't think Barnhart is dumb enough to fire Tubby unless he had some huge name coach who desperately wanted the job...

    Interesting... The beat reporters have been trying for weeks to speak with Barnhart about Tubby, but all they got was a lame statement. Then he's quoted by AP on the record. Anyone know how this happened or why he commented to the AP?
    (No, I'm not on the beat, but I'm curious)

    What he gave the AP was pretty lame, too.

    Dwayne Casey's looking for a job, right?
     
  12. Travis Ford? John Pelphrey?

    Mizzoufraud, are you stealing Boomer's schtick again? Better start paying royalties.
