Tubby's Tie

The Minnesota Gopher basketball team scored a major coup this week by hiring departed Kentucky coach Tubby Smith (BTW, do people call him that in conversation? "Hey, Tubby, what's up?" Sounds awkward.). It was quite a surprise to most, but it looks like taking over a moribund team with low expectations was a welcome reprieve for him from the pressure in Lexington.

This brings me to my main point. Several people I know have lamented the fact that Aggie coach Billy Gillespie doesn't wear maroon ties at games. Well, I can report that Tubby donned a maroon-and-gold tie on his very first day. Check it out:
