Is it time for Kentucky to welcome back former coach Tubby Smith to raise a banner with his name on it to the rafters of Rupp Arena?

Tubby’s career at Kentucky came to a close in 2007 after ten winning seasons in Lexington. The most notable moment of Tubby’s career at Kentucky was the 1998 NCAA championship win vs. Utah, his first season in Lexington.

Mark Story of the Lexington Herald-Leader laid out the criteria to be considered for a jersey retirement at UK.

The Kentucky Daily crew discussed Tubby on the latest podcast episode and whether or not it’s time for the former coach to return to Rupp Arena with his High Point team to be honored.

The first 12 minutes of the show is about Tubby Smith. You can listen in the player below.
