University of Minnesota administrators said they would move quickly on a decision about men’s basketball coach Tubby Smith once the season was over, and they were true to their word.

Most Gopher fans are very suspect of Norwood "The Fundraiser" Teague. He came from a school with no football; extended Tubby's contract; paid North Carolina $800,000 NOT to play the Gophers in football; secretly extended Pam Borton's contract and gave her a raise; is currently talking about extending Kill's contract and giving him a raise after his recent B1G record of 2-6; and he lost $16,000 on beer sales of $900,000+. I would say that all eyes are on him and how he handles the Gopher men's basketball coaching situation. If he suggests hiring some Big East or ACC assistant coach, I would suggest that Teague be fired as well and maybe President Kaler too. Firing Tubby is the right thing to do, BUT he had better have a replacement lined up. Remember what happened when Glen Mason was fired without having a plan in place.

What's another 2.5m. The good Minnesota tax payers and generous U of M students are good for it!

Wow. We better have someone good lined up to replace him. I don't like Tubby, but I don't want a Dan Monson.

Better have a major name in place, otherwise this was a huge mistake.
