Is it time for the UK to put Tubby Smith’s name on the beams of Rupp?

Is it time for Kentucky to welcome ex-coach Tubby Smith back to raise a flag with his name on the beams of Rupp Arena?

Tubby’s career in Kentucky came to an end in 2007, after ten winning seasons in Lexington. The most notable moment in Tubby’s Kentucky career was the 1998 NCAA championship win against Utah, his first season in Lexington.

Mark Story, of the Lexington Herald-Leader, defined the criteria to be considered for a retirement of the shirt in the United Kingdom.

The Kentucky Daily team discussed Tubby in the last episode of the podcast and whether or not it is time for the former coach to return to the Rupp Arena with his High Point team to be honored.

The first 12 minutes of the show are about Tubby Smith. You can hear it in the player below.
