Smith won a national title in Year 1 and is the only coach in school history to lead UK to the NCAA tournament in every season of his tenure, yet he found it hard to shake the "underachiever" label during his time in Lexington. Kentucky would never get back to the Final Four during Smith's decade in charge, falling in the Elite Eight in 1999, 2003 and 2005.

The team's recruiting under Smith's watch was a frequent bugbear with the fan base -- losing out to UNC on both Tyler Hansbrough and Brandan Wright during this era helped the anti-Smith sentiment gain some momentum. Just after the team's loss in the 2007 NCAA tournament, Smith resigned to take the Minnesota job, subsequently coaching at Texas Tech, Memphis and his current spot at alma mater High Point. Smith returned to Lexington in 2013, for the first time since his exit from the school, when he was named to the Kentucky Athletic Hall of Fame.
