REPORT: Tennessee fires Bruce Pearl

The NCAA troubles at the University of Tennessee claimed the men’s basketball coach. According to a report from the Times Free Press, “The University of Tennessee has fired men’s basketball coach Bruce Pearl, multiple outlets have reported. Pearl, who led the Vols to a program-record six consecutive NCAA trips, lied to NCAA investigators about recruiting violations.”

The Volunteers have faced intense NCAA scrutiny of basketball and football programs. In no small part the NCAA was encouraged to examine the Volunteer program thanks to the big mouth and crazy antics of former Volunteer football coach Lane Kiffin. Of course, Kiffin fled Knoxville and the Tennessee program for a sunnier location out west.

With so many problems in the athletic department, we are forced to wonder how Mike Hamilton keeps his job. If he had any decency, he would have long ago resigned for the disgrace he brought to Knoxville.

    The Evil Empire takes another hit! You stink at football, and now you’ll stink at basketball. That Shining Beacon on the Hill is now tarnished, right Indy Troll?

    I just saw an eagle shit on an area of the future Ewok statue. Wonder what will happen when he loses next year too.

    You Bammer Morons are just jealous because Bammer has NEVER had a BB coach anywhere near as good as Bruce Pearl. He made a mistake and has to suffer the consequences. What he did was no worse than Tressel or Calhoun (UConn).

    Hamilton should have been fired and Pearl kept!

    Do that Nodick. When you do I’ll know it’s you and I’ll drag you by your Tiger Rag to University Blvd and curb stomp your pompous, pathetic face into the pavement.

    Don’t worry. You don’t need teeth to drink a beer or to be an Auburn fan.

    Never had a coach as good as Pearl?

    Try CM Newton, who chaired the selection committee for years or Wimp Sanderson. Sanderson won three straight SEC Championship Tournaments.

    When did Pearl do anything other than write alimony checks????

    Indy Troll, I wonder if you’ll still want Pearl when the NCAA hands down sanctions against the Viles. They have a hearing before the Infractions Committee in June. Shouldn’t be long after that. Also be prepared for top coaches turning down a chance to coach at the now tarnished Shining Beacon on the Hill. Wasn’t Dooley your 7th or 8th choice as football coach? Same thing will happen in basketball.

    Indianavile : you always talk about the evidence and yet you want to say that Alababa never had a coach as good as the one that won one SEC championship? Show me the evidence. Will be fun watching the hammer fall in Knoxville. By the way, four in a row on the football field with more to come.

    Indianavile you love facts (ha) and the facts are four in a row and five of six and I’m willing to put money where my mouth is about more to come. Are you or are you old enough to have any money? One SEC championship for the great pearl

    Ooh Pimpleton,
    I might put my Wanger in your mouth and break your teeth out when I pull out, girl. Then I’ll piss on Tattoos statue.

    Classy Nicket…Very Classy.

    Wouldn’t expect anything less from a fan base that wants to be in the same league as Bama, but with only one tenth of the justification.
