Tubby doesn't do a thing. No timeouts, no reaction to Indiana's game plan, no nothing.

Indiana is terrible, just terrible.

I haven't seen such a display of gutless play in a long time by the Gophers.

Ugh!

He called a timeout and made some defensive changes. I'm not even a Tubby defender, but can we lock this thread?

Don't be so exasperated. We saw as bad or worse in that Virginia game, which wasn't that long ago. I expect a lot of this instability the rest of the year, now that Nolen is hurt and Joseph is quitting. Could be an ugly season.

Please, he didn't do a thing the last five minutes when this all went to hell.

Lots of coaches have the strategy to let players play through it. Ask Phil Jackson how well it has worked out.

I know what you are saying, but that was the worst example ever.

Phil is just a bball coach that is "known" for that style of coaching

However, how about Tubby's switch the the press there for awhile?

Phil is a legend that has had some of the greatest players in history. Tubby, well...

The press was an example of actual coaching.

Thankfully, Rodney has come alive.

The full-court AGGRESSIVE press is what has worked best for Tubby here at Minnesota. It always seems to fire up the team. I don't understand at all why Tubby uses the AGGRESSIVE press (often he has an on-ball man press, but that's rarely effective) so infrequently.

Tubby has been out coached in every game in the Big Ten so far. I don't expect somone who claims to be his friend to see that.

We are lucky to have him, but the last five minutes of the first half and the last two minutes of the second half were ugly and that is on Tubby and only Tubby.

Pointless since I never said we should fire him or anything of the sort. Face it, your hero can have bad nights. Sadly, this is his third in a row.

What position did Tubby play tonight?

I saw a few Gopher players playing poorly.

Which one was he?

The local talent pool has improved exponentially during the past 15 years. The struggles in the early part of the decade were largely attributed to the black cloud cast over the program and that was too much for a young coach to navigate through. This is a program ready to emerge as a consistent performer. There's been some bad luck with Royce White and Jon Leuer, and we're in the midst of a dip in local HS talent that will end next year, but there should be better days ahead. Even if Tubby makes good someday on his flirtations with ACC and SEC schools. We'll have a quality coach here.

First half: He played the position of watching the game.

Second Half: Coached for a while, then watched as the fellas almost lost a gimmie game.

Since when doesn't the coach take responsibilty for his players performances?

Listen, Tubby will be fine with or without some criticism from faceless fans. I feel he hasn't been up to par lately. I feel the proof has been there for all to see.

tikited- I'm with you here. Tubby needs to take a long look at himself and what he is doing with this group of players. These guys want to win but there are a lot of guys that are confused about what to do on both ends of the court. Lots of guys who are tentative and scared to make a mistake and of course that leads to some brutal looking mistakes. No one can argue that Tubby is not a great coach. He is and the record shows it. I hope he retires here after a good number more years but he is not doing a good job with this club.

I don't know a thing about Devoe and I don't condone what he has done in quitting but you can bet there's more than a little frustration with the systems Tubby is running with this personnel. The offense is just terrible and the defense continues to be a sieve for 3 pointers. He can point at the players but it's his job to get them functioning in something that they can do properly and that's not happening. The two guys who best run his stuff are Monson recruits.

Tubby is great but he needs to step up and show some flexibility to adjust to what he has. Tonight was a near disaster averted by the sheer will of Al Nolen and Trevor Mbakwe.

I sure hope...

...Tubby is reading all this advice from Hall of Fame coaches on this board. I'm sure it will help a lot in improving the performance of this team.

I agree with those criticizing Tubby to a point. The Gophers consistently give up open looks to other teams shooters, while Blake did not get one open look in the entire first half from 3. Several times tonight after timeouts, Indiana came out and ran a play that resulted in a layup...when was the last time we saw that from the Gophers? The Gophers offense consists almost solely of Ralph or Trevor trying to make an 18 foot high/low pass to the other big man in the game for a layup. This pass seems to be stolen 40% of the time, result in the post receiving the ball too low to do anything with it 40% of the time and successful 20% of the time. The Gophers are a very easy team to defend right now and a very easy team to score on right now.

Repeat after me: Tubby is a hall of fame coach. Therefore bullet proof and immune from any criticism. All posts should start with a certain amount of praise for Tubby. :)

He is NOT (yet) HOF-er and may never get there. He is a good coach.

He is a good coach- in fact a great coach. We are darn lucky to have him. But he is looking like one stubborn dude right now who's club looks disjointed on both ends of the court and has for weeks. Tubby needs some fresh input from assistants and some adjustments. These guys cannot perform whatever it is he is running. If he plans to stick with the same offense he may want to consider recruiting more guys that can shoot the ball. Joseph is the only Tubby recruit that was a somewhat proven shooter. The rest are athletes. This is part of his offensive woes.

I agree with both sides on this one. I would just beg to tubby to use timeouts to prevent 10 point runs from the opposing team. please.

Where do these posters come from?

I come from Mpls., and I'm not kidding.

Did you actually read the first post and see it was from the first half or did you just read the title?
