    If Willis were to red-shirt, would that not free up one as well?.....He could possibly garner minutes..never seen the kid play. But, with the class coming in, and some that may stick around, he isn't likely gonna see much other than garbage time. He should use this next season as extended training.

    DraftExpress: No chance. He's 100% gone I'm told. RT @ChrisRoush31 Curious to hear your opinion on Alex Poythress. Turning into a multi-year guy?

    Re: UK Basketball 8th Edition

    I was looking at the comparisons for our new guys......

    PF Julius Randle (Chris Webber)
    SG James Young (Michael Redd)
    SG Aaron Harrison (OJ Mayo)
    PG Andrew Harrison (Dion Waiters)
    C Jakari Johnson (Shaquille O'Neal)
    PF Marcus Lee (Javale McGee)

    What do you guys think the depth chart is going to look like next season?

    Starters: Harrison/Goodwin/Young/Randle/Johnson?

    Since Tubby is no longer at Minnesota....

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZPJQrHsIng

    I wonder if Minnesota will be characterized the same way we were, and we didn't even give him the pink slip.

    Tubby was a good family man who you would love for your kids to play for, but his style of basketball didn't attract top level recruits. The championship he won was with Pitino's players, and he reaped the benefits.

    I said when Tubby left I would pull for him to do well. No ill feelings toward the man, it just wasn't a right fit at Kentucky.

    Actually WV, I think the fall-out should be worse at Minnesota. Geez, all Tubby did was win at Minnehaha......so he didn't get the recruits, so he wasn't competing for the B1G Title.............But he did get them into the third round this year and they played well. IT IS MINNESOTA! Not Kentucky, Duke, North Carolina, or any of the other elite programs......just Minnesota. A program that to my knowledge has never one a championship and has been to 1 FF. What in the heck do they expect up there?

    Considering the fact that their mid-late 90's run is wiped from the records for rampant cheating, Tubby goes down as one of the most successful coaches they've had there, maybe THE best.

    Tubby has also ran off some pretty high profile players in Minnesota, namely Colton Iverson, Devoe Joseph, and Royce White. I don't think that set too well with the boosters in Minnesota, especially looking to what is coming through the state (Tyus Jones and Rashad Vaughn).

    Tubby wins with "his" players and has never adapted. If you are Tyus Jones and you have the opportunity to stay in state and play "Tubbyball" or go to Kentucky and become the next in line at PG's to get drafted which would you take? Can't blame Minnesota for trying to keep the kids in state, even if it means cutting ties with one of the most likable coaches in the game.

    Re: UK Basketball 8th Edition

    The thing with Minnesota is... Who are they going to hire that's better than Tubby? It's not exactly North Carolina, UCLA or Kentucky.

    Yes, UK was able to get Calipari, but not before The Billy Clyde Experience. Who can Minnesota get (realistically) that's better than Tubby?

    Not to sidetrack a UK thread, but at this stage of the game, if the object is to keep the best in-state talent from going elsewhere, the Gophers need someone who will:

    1) Not likely use the Gopher job as a stepping stone - Ties to the State of Minnesota are a plus

    2) Offer NBA "street cred".

    Given the above, the choice is clear: Bite the bullet and offer the job to Flip Saunders.

    The problem is, by all accounts, Saunders is in line to replace David Kahn as T-Wolves G.M. But it shouldn't hurt to ask.

    Being a T-Wolves fan, 5timeWSChamps should be able to offer more insight here than I can, though.
