If the Penny experiment fails Memphis is looking at a considerable amount of time in the abyss.

Difficult to tell. We dont know which juco guys would've still come.

Say you have a starting lineup of Martin, Brewton, KJ Lawson, Dedric Lawson, and Mike Parks. With Rivers, Johnson, Thornton, Thodes, and Nickelberry coming off the bench.

We probably beat Alabama missing their 3 best players, win the USF and ECU games we lost as well as the UCF and LSU games at home.

That makes us 24-7 with a 48 RPI. Solidly on the bubble but needing to do some work. Our OOC schedule was awful which wouldnt help.

Isn't poor scheduling also a hallmark of Tubby teams?

LOL. They dont need that after a decade of Lebo.

ECU needs to do what Memphis does in football. Great a great assistant that will work his ass off finding players.

Penny will probably win with Tubby’s players for a bit too, just like Texas Tech. :stirthepot:

Pastner didnt have any Calipari players other than Willie Kemp(back up point guard) and Pierre Niles(part time center/full time parade float).

He gone

Worst attendance in 50 years
2 worst non-exhibition losses in Memphis history...happened in the same season
3 of the weakest recruiting classes in Memphis history
Constant PR disasters

Bye, Tubby

honestly, its probably 50/50. President Rudd said he will be evaluated at the end of the season. Just a few weeks ago, Rudd and Bowen were talking about year 3 like a certainty so its definitely a change from them

According to Gary Parrish(national CB writer for CBS and Memphis resident) the boosters have the money ready if we make a change.

The loss to USF and the loss of 800k from the Grizzlies for missing attendance thresholds have changed everyone's outlook on this in the last week. Tubby making a fool of himself in the national media over transfers the last few days has helped either.

The school has lost over $1,000,000 in ticket revenue (seats/ donations) and will get none of a possible $800,000 from the Grizzlies that's part of an attendance agreement. Tubby is costing them $5M (his salary + lost revenue) a year for 19 win seasons and not even making the NIT. Penny solves several problems:

- can work on the cheap while Tubby is paid his buyout money (school has 6 years to pay him off)
- instant top 5-10 recruiting class which Tubby would never get
- season tickets and attendance goes thru the roof

Its a matter of economics as much as it is lousy on court performance. Tubby should be cut loose as soon as Memphis loses in Orlando.

The transfer rant was just the culmination of a season of very odd statements from Tubby.
