He's not the exciting hire that they'd be looking for. Would definitely clear out the riff-raff though.

Doubtful. I don't think UCLA wants a 61 year old B1G castoff known for physical play.
They basically had a younger version of that in Howland...and Howland had some west coast experience, unlike Smith.
Gotta think UCLA wants someone flashier, younger, who can recruit the west coast/Ca. They'll probably go after a Mountain West loser.
Not sure he'll leave UNLV, but a guy like Dave Rice is probably their target. (I can't see UCLA hiring a Tark guy but he fits what they want)
Uh, sure. Yeah, that will happen.....right after someone on this board beats LeBron one on one.

Ive been rumoring it since about 5seconds after it was rumored that Tubby was shitcanned
If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day.
Did it twice. Jordan gave me a tougher game though. Also, rumor has it Tubby Smith is going back to Kentucky. Calipari is going to Minnesota and all of his 2013 commits are going with him.
So it's gaining steam?
If I'm Mark Few, I'm taking a long look at that opening. Gonzaga has hit their ceiling.
I also read it on a message board. So I think this might have some legs.
I think Few watched his predecessor's career after leaving Gonzaga and has said "I'm keeping the job I have". Just a hunch. But he seems like the basketball Chris Peterson.
Tubby's not getting the UCLA job.
Tubby isn't right for UCLA. It's in California and Tubby ain't California, baby.
I do hope he gets a good gig somewhere where they will appreciate and support him., He did a good job in a school without a lot of sports money, no practice facilities and not near the "hotbeds" of basketball recruiting.
Please don't speculate.
There's already been a groundswell of mentions of it. Entirely in this thread and based on no credible evidence whatsoever, but there's a reason the chatter isn't dying out.
Dwayne Stephens would take that program to new heights. I hope he gets a look.
it is on at least 2 different message boards, it must be true.
exactly. Few is king at Gonzaga and Spokane and is getting compensated more than handsomely. Zags fans are upset about the loss but not rioting in the streets as UCLA fans would be if it happened to them.
BRAD STEVENS TO NORTHWESTERN, TUBBY TO BUTLER. SHAKA SMART TO UCLA.
I know a guy. This is super serial.
GOOD ONE DERP
Gopher fans think they're getting Smart b/c their new AD hired Smart's at VCU.
Vim -- noun: robust energy and enthusiasm : VITALITY
Tubby has to help Izzo game plan for Duke first...then he can accept the UCLA job.
Shaka Smart will simultaneously be hired to coach each school that has a position open this offseason.
He's that good.
