At first I thought you said,

Tim Floyd is a great catch!

Glad I was wrong.

he's a hunk!


I lived in Iowa, 45 minutes from Ames when he was the coach at Iowa State. This was the Kelvin Cato, Marcus Fizer days. Anyway, I had to say for what he was given(think Paul Shirley...) he sure made the most of it. But he could recruit some great college players too. Great College coach. Too bad he has that Chicago Bulls experience on his resume.

Can't forget his top-notch work with the Hornets

some coaches simply aren't cut out for the NBA no matter how good a coach they me be... on that level it's more about managing ego's than anything else, where is top college coaches tend to work to crush ego's...

rick pitino's one of the greatest college coaches of all time... but as an nba head coach & gm? not so good.

(although i imagine he would have had a bit more success if he had landed duncan... [/gut shot to celtic fans])

Larry Bird is not walking through that door, fans. Kevin McHale is not walking through that door, and Robert Parish is not walking through that door...

I don't think they fired Tubby, he just got out of there before they had the opportunity to fire him. Can't say I blame him for wanting to go to a less pressure filled situation.

He was certainly nudged out the door at least. You don't leave a prestigious program like Kentucky to go to freaking Minnesota willingly.

I'm not so sure about that. There's only so much crap a person can take before they say enough is enough. It's probably why Steve Alford left Iowa too. Maybe Tubby could read the writing on the wall, but I can't blame him at all for leaving that situation - where anything short of a title just isn't good enough.

I agree with you, I'm just saying if someone had an opportunity to coach at Minnesota or Kentucky with all things being equal, every coach would pick Kentucky. The fact that the fans gave him so much crap after all he had done for them to actually make the Minnesota job look more desireable is ridiculous.

Very true, Kentucky is one of "the" jobs in college basketball that people and coaches will be lining up to take the job - in the past hour I've heard Mark Few, Tom Creen, Billy Donovan, Rick Pitino, Rick Marjerus, etc all mentioned as possible picks to replace Tubby. Some people just are not suited to coach there - Rick Majerus would probably drop dead of a heart attack if he took it.

Add Billy Gillispie. Talk about this for months from UK people, all aggies are a afraid he'll go to UK. I'm hopeful he won't since he turned down Indiana.

I think the luster of the "big" jobs is falling with parity in college basketball. (Why Alford and tubby are getting out) Why would someone like Billy Donovan ever leave Florida for Kentucky? Florida is at much better place as a program right not than Kentucky, and while there are big expectations at Florida the pressure is not the same as Kentucky. I don't really get the "wanting to be a part of the history". I am a hard core basketball guy, love college hoops and coach high school and I would never want to coach at UNC or UK. I personally don't get the the people who talk glowingly about the history of these programs. I would rather build my own name, that have to compete with the legends at these places.
