The Tubby Smith/Minnesota article is interesting. Notes that the new’ish AD was the one who hired Shaka Smith at VCU. If a decent NCAA tourney run occurs it may be time to talk to Shaka again. That would add a new wrinkle to the B1G.

I think Shaka Smith has already turned down jobs that would have been better opportunities than the MN job. It would be tough to get him to go to MN when he’s got all sorts of options with schools that have better locations, better facilities, and a better upside. Plus, unless Tubby is ready to retire (how old is Tubby?), I think he’s secure in that job. MN’s BB arena is a joke, and until they build a new one, they’ll be lucky to keep Tubby Smith.

My guess is that Shaka Smith will eventually wind up coaching at an ACC school that wants to challenge Duke, UNC, NCS, etc. That’s where the money and facilities will be and he’s already well known in that part of the country. But of course, I could be wrong.
