The University of Memphis basketball team has a head coach (Tubby Smith) who makes $3-million dollars per year. The Tigers play in an NBA arena. Memphis just opened a new state-of-the-art $20-million dollar practice facility with a facade that looks like the White House in Washington D.C. Yet the Tigers lost to a weak rostered-UAB squad with a worse Ken Pom rating then the Tigers...IN THE 140's. Yes, Memphis basketball likely has seen it's best days already as the Tubby Smith era isn't going well.  Memphis has zero top-150 recruits on the way from the 2018 class.  They do have a signee that doesn't regularly start for his high school basketball team in Connor Vanover. Clearly Memphis fans are expected to lower their expectations it seems.

A poll conducted via twitter with over 700 respondents suggested much of the fan base wants Tubby Smith fired immediately.
