Here's Wednesday's Dear Gary ...

Dear Gary: Did Kentucky utilize the Elite Camp loophole during Tubby Smith's tenure? I thought Tubby wouldn't deal with the AAU coaches.

-- Thomas

Honestly, I'm not sure whether Kentucky was holding Elite Camps back then. But either way, I never understood Tubby's concept of not "dealing" with AAU coaches. That's like being in the movie-making business but claiming not to want to deal with fame. The fame goes with the territory of being an actor, just like dealing with AAU coaches is a part of being the basketball coach of an elite program.

There are really only two options:

1. Deal with AAU coaches and try to get their players.

Or ...

2. Move to Minnesota.

Looks like Tubby took the right choice.  Minnesota is better than most alternatives.

Wow,

   I love it Gary... that was one of the greatest statements I have read in a while. I for one have never been a Tubby hater by any means but facts are facts and you said it best. It's obvious the name on the front of that great jersey no longer brought in great talent like it did in years past so I love the fact that someone else outside of the Big Blue Nation called it for what it was... lazy recruiting on the part of the previous UK staff.

I love it !!

 

GO CATS !!!
