The idea that the NCAA is looking into Mike the possibility of going for that division one athletes. Whether college football college basketball whatever could transfer right to the same level of competition. And not have to sit out a year. Right and and Tubby Smith made the comment that that he thinks is still this is teaching. A players that really how to quit or that they will Qwikster and and go to another. By going to another college Tubby Smith joins us Memphis head coach on the shell Pennzoil for Forsythe coached. Appreciate your time this morning very much and while we're wanna get to that the serious topic here first and foremost I think. It is the 106 year old birthday for the Oreo cookie are you a fan of Oreo Cookies. Absolutely look no Cornel again. To tell you right there you go exactly what I said the only though the only bad way to you know Oreo is two or not he's an Oreo Cookies. Are right our coach so if you could reiterate what you had said. Along the lines of if if players are allowed to transfer without any penalty rod sitting you you kind of align the word that that they could be. Seeing these kids teaching than to be corners. I'd rather I was reflecting back on my experience what I was when I put college back and let each guy look bad awarded. He's closing facilities still people who still held in pursuit of its condition your surge will look. You made a commitment. Been bolstered by actually going out and high school monopolies or doubtful football in order like would you recommend misunderstood too so levels low and lol concerned because transferred nuclear threat. Transfers. I've left jobs who then moved to do it through must Wear only twelve times in this coaching profession so I understand that that. Things may not work out certain places who did she W as well you virtual concealment Accenture but if you start opening up. Or just leave whenever they feel like leaving. We'll have a little problem that was lol. Well port. In interest rates that we we ordered so we want to value sticking to something committed so. And not given up more. I guess coach the other side of that is and where I went and did you I guess it was before teaching them or their their learning how to quit. I can understand if this rule one to play there would be issues I know I why should completely understand that. But to win when you put that word quitter I mean to say teach and they made a commitment. I went to and you said it is well you've been to a few places other coaches have as well and you sign a contract to commit there. But then for some coaches another opportunity comes along that's a school maybe that's a better school that they wanna go to and there's more money involved and they break their commitment from one school to go coach at the other school leaving those student athletes that they recruited behind so. It just seems odd to say we kids are winners yes the coaches and I'm not saying you guys don't have the right to do that. But you can't do it and you're panicked called and the players quarters if they wanna transfer. Cuomo was a circle put us that we teaching them about. If they understood of course there's a difference in the worst call in about a quarter arms into detention in mixed seizure to move slightly up at certain. Often present yourself which you might hear of a change in administration remember what your goal. Demonstration over a lot of reasons why coaches. Removal. Players. What we understand that as Tubby Smith remembers that goes joins us on the show pencil performance line taking synthetic motor oral performance to a whole new level make the switch to Pennzoil today. But tubby to that point. Look we that you talk about it a better situation in a promotion more maybe it's a better situation for the kids somewhere else. It's something changes around them weathered the coach that recruited them left door they got there and it wasn't exactly what they thought it was going to be and I understand we're talking like young. Youngsters who who might. Vas a little more easily. And then grown men but we know we have a coaching in college football tubby. That is coached three different schools to ball games and has only been around a coach one of them in the ball game because he keeps going to this to a different place leaving players he recruited behind. I know again or whatever are going to talk to personal. Players we talk about. So is social police each university of British review all our lives. This community is pleased we will Malaysia Fam and someday. In this way we operate elsewhere Conan because you're not just. The sluggish U Kozyrev McAvoy got doppler dominate. Maybe hard to morals are made about health issues in agreement happen. Those which are you sort of slippery reached this opportunity to get an education and play best. Started Tubby Smith head coach at Memphis the German in this game a long time so when you're recruiting years ago to recruiting now. Hesitate and just what you said utopia and players. But I think you also know that players to pick your players that will go to Memphis because they want you to coach them and I know you tell them. To picket for the school but they wanna play for a Tubby Smith or coach K are Jim Anaheim so they're gonna choose this school for that reason. Do you know in New York in your pitch to recruit a kid saying anymore I'm going to be here awhile your hear the entire time or should coaches not be saying that anymore. Well players you'll accept permits and wherever you move the ball with their young lives rescission molecular courts there miners are using it. No I don't wanna be here. Unbelievable being here but searching has similar actions like or like there's there's debt there's dolby changes. Industry you have to understand it. That I'm talking book commitment you're one of firmly group real damage came in Whitman was one viewer their own recruitment horse farm recruits came in which. So there is so there is that element as well that trailing hemisphere that every coach tries to develop within their tomb. Then you're rotten people people dislike hopeful for almost certain to go look at some parts of the country we had what we all families. It Tubby Smith was the Memphis coach talking about the idea of whether or not it would be. A good idea or bad idea for college players whether it's football basketball baseball whatever be able to transferred. Within a year and not to sit out there wanna play at the same level. And and I totally understand what you're saying but you know we they're kids that don't play sports hobby that are allowed to transfer to a different school. And there's no issues involve because they agers weren't happy at that school they find themselves happy so Morales. So why shouldn't that same sort of flexibility be allowed per student athlete. I don't know where grocers throughout Cecil told warden to make a move what changed schools are a lot of reason maybe not playing as much who thought. You're still exist not happy I love putting him well we're talking about. Those commitments that you make and there are a lot of things didn't always changes without bail in time and heard a lot of pressure. Among the biggest fan of college athletes today because of what. Because all the things you have to deal with those like us talking about the slump. Old national TV you know treasures transfers have been mapping what ages and we'll always have a bright cycle change but. But opening up. To just allow it to just happened you know that is instantly released. Open up pandora's box you know clearly wrestled and I was concerned about another all well. Particularly at any time. And where are they giving him not Hitler to look compares and their parents who are reward them could. That you should stick and it stayed and been better because I think there's a key witnesses to relationship to their player and a coach. Well and have heard have. About why our nation remaining. All loving or produce bestseller on the transfer. In a Tubby Smith was the Memphis coach look there's no question so that'd it's better for some players that stick out and do that and as you alluded to. If there's also tundra might be better for that kid deleting go somewhere else so we're having this conversation because he has that was talked about changing that rule so from a coach's perspective. If this rule is in place. Just tell us a 'cause a lot of coach we've heard from Singh missed the same thing you would be pandora's box open it would be terrible. What things would dramatically changed from your perspective as a head coach at a division one level should this rule be changed. You turn them over learned a lot of valuable time control and recruited young men. But he'll promote how many real expense standpoint. Travel around the country are restricted. You're Woburn group of people together whether it's in new organization would use him anywhere else you've you've you've got to look all the player burner as a role and responsibility. So it was a new got you point guard then Google final report we've skirted developer relationship there it's. I just think just the personal. The relationships. That you develop. They're really. Bob Stoops and players alert three different college coaches. Well I point. Eto'o and four years and then their normal player dilemma for some reason output but we stuck it out in our industry was destined to happen for me. And there must fairly ebitda. There there are no jobs are positives to it coach without question I guess. One word or the one phrase that just stuck with us and why we wanted to talk to you was was the word twitters that that it could teach that or or what kids get out of that. And then so that we just really hung up on that word is still no word you're your your stick with and say that that can teach players to do that. Well I've got to universal ever sir quarter asserted teaches you make your leisure. To re receiving our settles my lol lol what Al Gore well. Also my dad told the transsexual. It would be in good not quick little roll doing two ritual you've got to get it completed the administration and let's roll call to witness finish what you start. And I totally understand that but again. As you alluded to when you said your time and I'd point you said that was the best situation for you right in my piece of situation where might be better for the kid right to move on let's not. Zetterberg it will work for a player that it was the best situation. You know listen we really appreciate it all of the stubby and and more importantly thank you being on team Oreo that's more than anything else for you gotta gotta Rachel what shall it thanks Sony's provision that journalists like. I'm so glad to have tubby commodity. And I get what these same breath there's still the other side of it I get. I listen I was I was raised by a former marine football player my dad and there was. There was the commitment issue like get it when you started seizing your gonna finish a season. Our commitment as no question it's obviously a set of other things you commit. But just sometimes and it doesn't work for you. It doesn't work through that place and if you wanna move I just I just felt like the tag news explaining it's anyone's call on them quarters but it can it can breathe that air of you can give up too easily but I have. And there's something to that at the end of the day. It will be the thing that stuck with us as well as late. The coaches can do this without impugn yes and and and the thing about a coaching career is there can be long if you're successful obviously if you every want to hire you may not be that long but tell me he's been in a long time for players you have maximize years. You have four sometimes five years in the rare occasion six mostly four and five. That is short time your window to enjoy the college experience and if you wanna play sports. May be too you know winner district of a football class parents what are some players going in each class. And you know what may be going there and you find out. Hell there's three guys that are better review in the same class and and you're going to be. A back upper third stringer the whole time because of that. Now that doesn't mean you should work entered Friday night what's happening at Georgia right now all the quarterbacks to the garden usually transfer shouldn't try and work and maybe beat those guys out I get in the work ethic but there's also wait a minute. Are there for five years in this show and I'd like to get on the field so maybe I am I should try somewhere else. I mean to me. At that doesn't mean where you're not accepting the challenge so we stayed there for 45 years there was a backup or third stringer for 45 years and never got on the field. I get the I understand there's something to that. But also that's their only time to make came and they wanna go somewhere else to try get on the field to put themselves in a better situation just like coaches can try and do I don't see why they can't do that. Look at one point baker mayfield Davis web and they just want and it can't Padma homes were all all quarterback from a Texas Tech right baker mayfield chose to leave and look what Abby begum Heisman Trophy winner and now he's gonna join Patrick Holmes. As a first round in the NFL draft coming up but next month art lots more to talk about. All honest straight and we got to come out absolutely we appreciate you coming on and sort of explaining what his thought process was.
