LUBBOCK, Texas  -- Tubby Smith's time at Texas Tech has begun. And he says he will fit in just fine in West Texas, where cowboy hats and cowboy boots are more prominent than other many other places he's coached.

So you had a guy, that if he was a prospect, you would be falling all over yourselves to hire him, and you let him go. You got lucky in your hire before taking this job, lightning does not strike twice. This is Minnesota, we will never be a basketball power. The anti group will never allow funds to be spent on the amenities needed to attract top talent. This set gopher b ball back at least 6 years.

Anybody been to Lubbock, Texas? Not too many have. It's not a hotbed for 4 or 5 star recruits. Dutcher was correct about the Gopher program. Tubby didn't recruit one player who was even NBA material unlike the numerous recruits by Musselman, Dutcher and Haskins. If you look at this next year's team, it will be horrendous.

"Anybody been to Lubbock, Texas? Not too many have. It's not a hotbed for 4 or 5 star recruits. ---insert Minnesota and see if the statement holds true." You have got to be kidding. Millions more come to the Twin Cities than Lubbock, TX.

Well you Tubby haters, you got your wish! Now Tubby has landed on his feet faster than you can say " Go Red Raiders ". And Teague, he,s still sifting through the leftovers!! And writting big buyout checks, USING MY MONEY TO COVER THEM!!!!!!!!!! Sure the lifestyle is different in Lublock ( I happen to like it, but so what, to each his own). Sure he isn't,t going to get the " fancy names". , but neither do the Gophs. One thing; the kids he does get, probley want be basket cases and head cases !! And you wonder why Colton Iverson transferred ??? GOOD LUCK TUBBY!! ! note,:I am a U of M alumm who wears cowboy boots, proudly
