  • Stubblefield could take Oregon position

    From former national hoops writer and current Oregon sports personality Justin Young:

    "Hearing from multiple people that Tony Stubblefield of Cincinnati could be the final asst. coach hired for Oregon hoops."

    I figured this would happen. Coaches are seeing what a great job coach Cronin has done and now want to steal his coaches. Its tough for Cronin but its the price you pay for being a good coach. I'm confident he'll find a suitable replacement.
    Not to be a debbie downer, but it's not all good attention.

    Who cares. It is national attention. UC's basketball program needs attention in just about any way it can get it.

      Do we really have to do this in every basketball thread?

        Not surprising - Tony's been here a while and if he feels like the program is heading the wrong way, why not get out before it's too late.

        That being said, he was a good recruiter and if he leaves, we'll miss him.

          There have been a lot of complaints about the assistant coaches on this team. Maybe this will infuse some new blood in the program and make a positive impact on the team. Nothing against Tony, but if we're not changing the head coach, then this might be the next best thing.

              From a Bearcatnews fan, all I ever see is a lot of Mick bashing, but with zero actual evidence (according to my standards). In four years, he has taken a program destroyed more than any other - aside from probation - and brought it to relative respectability.
              I have always loved the 'Cats, I love the 'Cats now, and will always love them. No questions asked.

                The bottom half of the Big East, zero NCAAs, and one NIT is not exactly respectability. I don't see many "experts" gushing over our program. The "Shoe" is half full. The students don't show up. The people who do show up don't cheer. Is that really respectable? Far from it in my opinion. And by the way, no postseason, mediocre to poor results, late season collapses, no player development, fans leaving the program, not even in the top 5 in our own state, no student interest, etc is all "actual evidence".

                  Certain people will never accept a reality they do not want to see. The excuse that Cincinnati was left empty and gutted and destroyed or whatever other descriptor you want was valid years ago. This is going to be year five of Cronin and sixth full season since Huggins was last a Bearcat coach. That excuse was rarely invoked last season, and yet here it is brought up again. It is no longer a valid argument. Last season was supposed to be the "first" real season by many accounts on how we can judge Cronin. As a Cincinnati fan I judged last season as a failure especially compared to previous levels this program had been at. There is a reason Cronin is bashed, and Cronin has the ability to change that by simply winning a lot more games and maybe getting a decent PR director.

                  With all of that said, none of that has much bearing on the actual thread. If the position at Oregon is viewed as a step up for Stubblefield then I say rock on. I hope he gets the position and I hope he excels in it.
                  In loving memory, I will be a fan for both of us.

                    While not on topic, Cronin should be given some credit for lifting the program backup. He just needs to take it to the next level. He'll have to prove he's the guy who can do that.

                      goodmanonfox: Sources told FOXSports.com that Oregon's Dana Altman is expected to hire Cincinnati assistant Tony Stubblefield to fill out his staff.

                        If you leave a guy as coach long enough, he'll eventually have a good season. Will one good season validate him as our long term coach?

                        It would have been virtually impossible to not lift our program back up from where it started with him. After all, we did have a pretty long stretch of being one of the top 10 programs in the nation leading up to his hire. He was just handed a thin roster, but all the other positives (and a few negatives) were solidly in place before he got here and he didn't have to rebuild any of those. He just had to refurbish the roster, which was suppoed to be his strength. We're four years down the road now and I really can't get too excited about what he has accomplished. Yes, the record has gotten better, but a lot of other things about this program have gotten worse under him.

                        How long do we wait to see if he finally has what it takes? There is one huge positive that we can give him credit for though. Many great seat locations that used to be non-existant, have now opened up!

                        As far as Stubblefield is concerned, does losing any of the current coaches really make anyone sad? Until we have some consistent success, I don't think anyone is going to get too upset over asst. coaches leaving. I just hope he doesn't replace him with a former high school coach this time.

                          I think there are some DePaul and Rutgers fans that will tend to disagree with you here.

                            Mr. Bearcat, your comments are spot on as far as I'm concerned......of course this is only my personal opinion (had to put the disclaimer)

                              I think we got the talent level back to where it needs to be. That was one of the hardest parts of me leaving, knowing they had a chance to go to the NCAA tournament.
