That happened last year to UNC - and it wasn't the end of the world. Maybe it'll give Tubs an opportunity to coach a "team" from the ground up again - much in the way that Roy Williams did at UNC. Yeah, the team that won the National Championship was awesome, but there were problems (Rashad McCants, namely)... and in my opinion this new group of kids plays much more like a team than I've seen in a while.
If at the end of this season, they have another less than great season, and a bunch more kids leave before they graduate, then I'll agree with you about Tubby Smith.
