Thinking they were out of the woods after Virginia hired Tony Bennett, Gopher fans will be very disappointed to learn that Head Coach Tubby Smith is considering an offer to become the head coach of the College of Cardinals. This would obviously be a surprising move, because the once-powerful Cardinals have been declining in popularity for about 50 years. Eugênio de Araújo Sales, senior member of the Cardinals, said today that Tubby's aggressive style and fiery gameday demeanor would bring something that's been lacking for a very long time to the pious group: the ability to keep younger people interested and older people awake.
This is by no means a done deal, however. If Tubby has reservations about the 82 year-old Williams Arean being too old, one would imagine that the coach would be frightened by moving to the 383 year old St. Peter's Basilica for his home games.
