College Hoops News

Three notable College Hoops stories today:

Tubby Smith quits Kentucky for….Minnesota? Talk about a downgrade. That’s like going from Sam Adams to Olympia Ice. I guess he saw the writing on the wall in Lexington. My question is, why not take the Michigan job? That’s got to be a better job than Minny? Also, who takes the coveted Kentucky opening? I herd Tom Crean’s name bantered about. I don’t buy that. My prediction: Bruce Pearl. Just a hunch.

Steve Alford quits Iowa for New Mexico. Another downgrade. Does he really have that much pressure at Iowa to justify leaving (before getting fired) the Hawks for the last place team in the Mountain West? Actually, I bet he succeeds there.

Finally…Duke’s Josh McRoberts is going pro. Bwahahahahaha!!!! Good luck with that.

Outstanding, you have to read the breaking news from the Kentucky Sports Report, they are using the job search as a draw for new subscribers.

Now that is a following tough to match and that following is why the UK job is hands down top 5 programs / destination jobs in the country.

Also incase you were wondering why Minny instead of Michigan, I was told that he got $1.8 to $2.5 mil.

Honestly, Josh McRoberts? Is Tanner Bronson far behind? Enjoy life in the D-League Josh. You can be Rick Rickert's butt buddy.
