Tubby joins Ben in the ranks of the unemployed

Apparently, beating this year's brand of Ben Ball Warriors was not enough to save Tubby Smith. Failing to finish higher than 6th in the Big 10, and missing the NCAA's 3 years out of 5 did him in.

Tubby should definitely NOT be on Doughnut's short list. But this could have a ripple effect. We were not following the Minnesota saga as closely as our own saga, obviously. But I was not aware of any "he's gone" "he hasn't been fired" " he has been fired" timeline at Minnesota, as we witnessed with Doughnut's leadership.

Assuming that Minnesota's AD is more competent than Doughnut (a low bar indeed), and assuming that Minnesota can therefore conduct a competent search, they could move on one of our attractive candidates, before Doughnut even knows that he should be putting a list together.
