Minnesota officials announced Monday that Tubby Smith was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Smith underwent a procedure April 21, according to a release.

He says he's now "cancer free."

"I am happy to say that the cancer was contained and removed," Smith said. "I am now cancer free and feeling great.”

Smith has coached at four different Division 1 schools -- Tulsa, Georgia Kentucky and Minnesota. The 59-year-old Maryland native won a national championship at Kentucky in 2008. He's been at Minnesota the past four seasons and made the NCAA tournament twice.

Wow!  I had no idea he had health issues.  I certainly wish him the best.  I'm sure it is a tough time for him and his family.  I also want to point out that Imakanass is a complete idiot.  If you ignore a report on cancer, and pick out an error in the report, you are the dumbest ass on the planet!  I hope your children will see what you wrote someday.

This is one of the biggest blunders you have ever made, Gary. Kentucky won a national title in 1998. NINETEEN-NINTY-EIGHT! It was Kansas - KANSAS - who won a national title in 2008! Get your damn facts straight!

Actually,Kentucky won the championship in 1998 with Tubby as the coach. It was not 2008. BBN wishes you well.

Its a neet trick when you can win a National Championship at Kentucky in 2008 while you're coaching in Minnesota.  I wonder if Kansas know they took away that title yet?
