I am obviously disappointed and even angry with the firing of Tubby Smith at Minnesota today.  I rarely take a stand one way or another on such instances but Tubby Smith is one of the truely great guys in this business.  He is a role model for his players as well as all of us who coach.  He runs a clean program and stresses academic and personal growth of his student-athletes.  And he did an incredible job at the University of Minnesota.  Here are few of our past posts on Tubby regarding defensive play.
