Hmmm...good question. The 1990 team, Pitino's first and the first of two years on probation, went 14-14, so we might start looking there. The year before, Eddie Sutton's last team had a horrible year. I don't even remember the record, because I stopped watching that mess long before the season ended, but that team would be a candidate, as well.
There was an article in the Louisville paper this weekend that said that Tubby is a great coach and that he should stay, and placed the blame on his assistants. They pointed out that in ten years, he has only had two assistants leave for head coaching jobs. The others have been there ten years with no offers. That would
seem to be a problem. The suggestion was that he have a housecleaning with the assistants. I can't say that I disagree. Somebody's going to have to learn to recruit. Isn't that the main focus of assistants?
