just a thought

You know this is major news when one team blogs about the possible departure another teams coach. "Don't leave us!"

This is similar to University of Arizona fans in Tucson blogging about Pete Carroll leaving for the NFL a while back.

Interesting? Yes. Pathetic, umm yeah just a little.

I can't believe Barbee is being mentioned for any possible opening at Memphis. Two trips to the CBI gets a sniff? Memphis is in worse shape than I thought.

BARBEE (UNDESERVINGLY) IS BEING MENTIONED AT MEMPHIS....

Memphis is in worse shape than I thought.

ISN'T THE ABOVE LINE FROM THE PREVIOUS POST RIDICULOUS !!!!!!!!!

Musical chairs. Romper room music in the background. Speculation abounds. Distractions and disruptions. My choice?
Nolan Richardson and forty minutes of HELL.

Barbee knows the school plus he is having Coach Cal voach for him. He also knows how to run the DDP offense (famously named "no offense" by El Pasoans). However, memphis fans want Anderson from Mizzou but it is highly unlikely that he leaves the Big 12 for C-USA. Which makes Barbee the lead canidate for the Memphis job.

And unlike here, people actually understand basketball and understand the DDP offense and they will appreciate their coach. Barbee has every reason to leave if Memphis goes after him. As shown by the first couple of posters, Barbee gets no respect here but unlike Gillesie and Sadler, Barbee won't leave the team empty handed, there is real talent on this team.

But either way it looks like Gillespie will end up screwing UTEP yet again.

Jon

Good/bad news depending how you feel about Caoch Barbee,

There are a couple of reports out there that are saying that Memphis has ask and recieved permission to speak to Mizzou coach Mike Anderson.

There are also reports claiming that evn though Calipari is pushing to have Tony Barbee be his replacement at Memphis, that the tigers are more than liekly to go in a different direction.

Jerry,

What are you smoking? You really think that Memphis is going to seriously look at CBI Barbee when there is a wealth of winning coaches out there? Do you think Memphis will cave into Cali-Mari's suggestion-demand for his replacement when he is the very guy who would be taking a powder to go to Kentucky? Do you think that the current Memphis players and future recruits, who have no loyalty to Barbee, will be convinced to stick because he's a guy who used to be an assistant who knows their defense?

Really, Jerry? Barbee will be at UTEP next year. Bank on it.

jerry

skyhook...... Looks like Barbee to Memphis not that crazy afterall, look at the reports and blogs today........ Memphis wants the Mizzou coach, but he won't leave, which other "winning" coaches are dying to come to conference USA ??? Barbee has history if nothing else.

Drury

Barbee has history at Memphis and at Coach Cal's side. He has a pretty middling record at UTEP, so that sure isn't going to win him any higher visibility jobs.

RJ

"But either way it looks like Gillespie will end up screwing UTEP yet again."

Couldnt be more true, Jon

I really dont get UTEP fans sometimes, whats up with the love affair for Gillespie?

The guy abandoned the program when he knew we would have a monster team coming back, screw the guy...he ran for the money once he struck gold on UTEP's dime, we gave him the opportunity to start as a head coach and the bastard bailed on the city.

Now apparently all the haters will get what they want, Coach Barbee possibly leaving for Memphis, well I for one wont blame the guy for leaving. Seems like he gets no love from the city. No offense jokes, Coach Barbee Invitational?

CTB is building the program the right way, no easy fixes, the schedule is improving every year and he has taken his lumps with Freshman and Sophomores.

I hate losing DJ, but no seniors next year!

Arnett, Randy and Julyan will be monsters next season, add the new guys coming in will make this an NCAA tourney team again.

Like I said earlier, Barbee watch is underway...Does Wagner take over, we played pretty well with him running the team against UAB. Father of Dejuan, strong recruiter?

The coaching carousel sux for teams like UTEP...
