    Tubby Smith

    Now that he has straightened out Minnesota, will he stay in the Cities? He has had two previous stints in the SEC, and with the Auburn job open, he may want another crack at the conference he has been so familiar with over the years.

    Not at all. Oregon would be only job he would leave for.

    Re: Tubby Smith

    Auburn Undercover seems to think that Tubby will be offered the job.

    Good old Auburn Undercover. That was a fun site when they hired Chizik.

    Just read on CBSSports.com that a source from Auburn says they are close to hiring him.

    I know that plenty of the Auburn booster and fan sentiment wants them to hire Chuck Person. He played at Auburn and is currenlty an assistant for the Lakers.

    Re: Tubby Smith

    Minnesota needs to keep Tubby at all costs. He has done a phenomenal job. That program was on life support.

    Minnesota isn't the most tradition rich program, but it is certainly a better job than Auburn. Am I way off base with that? Also, Minneapolis is cold, but it is also a very nice city to live in. Why would Auburn be a better job?

    Re: Tubby Smith

    He's going to get PAID no matter what he does. I don't see him staying with the Gophers because they were very frustrated during the season. The rumor that is the hottest is the Oregon one.

    I've heard Turgeon is the main target at Oregon. Coached there and younger.

    Re: Tubby Smith

    That Oregon job has to be up there on a coaches list. It is in the NW where there is quite a bit of talent, there is a ton of money, there is recent success, that fan base is amazing. I would just think that job would be very attractive.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Tubby Smith

    If Tubby to Auburn means Jacobson to MN and GMac to UNI. Let's do this!

    Wonder what Charles Barkley would complain about if Auburn hired Tubby.
