So, not trash talking here - I'm legitimately curious - do you guys regret firing Tubbs? He kept you guys very competitive most years without much of if any NCAA scrutiny. I feel like he got screwed over by your administration forcing him to make unnecessary changes.

No, it was time for Tubs to go. I have nothing but good things to say about Tuberville as a person and I think he's a good coach, but he was getting very sloppy and complacent in recruiting his last few years at AU. Player retention was terrible, and we were just starting to have small problems all over the place.

It was time for a change to be made.

The obvious mistake came in hiring a 5-19 coach from Iowa State.

He's having a nice BBQ in Lubbock. Speaking of which, I wonder if Jimbo would bring Eddie Gran back. :|

I regret trying to run Tubby out in 2003. If we had treated him right he might have never gotten complacent and could still be coaching us to undefeated seasons and smacking down top 5 teams.

I feel Tubb's problem was never him. It was the constant meddling from Lowder and co.

Tubb's didn't like to play by their rules and it showed. I still think he lost his passion b/c of the constant BS he put up with.

I don't regret that it happened  perhaps HOW it happened a bit. Tubbs refused to fix his coaching staff, which had obviously started caring more about their own egos than winning games. His staff had also stopped recruiting like you have too, which comes from the top imo. When your major press is about the duck hunting trip you are taking to Arkansas instead of the big recruiting class you had, there is a problem.
