Let's be real here: Other than a very few knowledgeable people... one was jumping for joy when Bennett was hired. We wanted a big name splash - Tubby Smith, someone well known, someone who could recruit, someone to put us on the map. I dont recall ever hearing Bennett's name mentioned before the hire. I was not upset, but I certainly was not ecstatic. And I am glad I kept my mouth shut. Humility is one of the 5 pillars, the success of Tony Bennett is a good lesson in humility for those of us who think they know everything about college hoops.
