Why would Pearl lie to the NCAA?

Does it seem to anyone else from the facts that have come to light thus far that he might be protecting his stud recruiter?

Knowing that Hamilton would not tolerate cheating, and would want to make a strong statement with termination even though the NCAA would not find the illegal cell phones a major violation, he covered up for his assistant?

It absolutely does not excuse him, but it does make sense a bit more of the situation.

If Fulmer knew he was about to lose Rodney Garner in 1996 would he have lied if he thought he could protect him and not get caught?

By the way, for those who know any part of the inside scoop, Phillip Fulmer as UTAD will not keep us out of NCAA trouble unless he can keep finding evidence about our bigger rivals.

Hamilton is obviously pretty bad at patrolling his athletic department seeing as the NCAA is living on UT's front door step as we type.

Ed Orgeron is to Mike Hamilton as Ramar Smith is to Bruce Pearl...

A known bad person and bringing that fox into the hen house seems like it is going to catch up to us...

What? Orgeron has nothing to do with Pearl.

Orgeron is a known bad boy. As far as I know, he is the only known bad boy that Hamilton allowed into the program.

No indication previously that Pearl or Raleigh would be anything other than squeaky clean, but if BOT guys need an excuse to say he should have known better, Kiffin and coach rah rah give them all they need.

Everyone keeps reaching for some logical explanation while the actual answer is slapping them in the face. You lie until you can't lie anymore, its not like he is different than 90% of the coaches at other programs who engage in the same activities.

I know this strays from you're actual point, just throwing it out there.

The simplest explanation is almost always the correct one.

Apparently MHF isn't a big fan of Occam's Razor.

GTFO. Pearl is being competitive. Every major program does it, Pearl just got caught. He is a hell of a coach and if we loose him TN bb will go back to immediate irrelevance.

The only reason you lie is to cover something up....he obviously had (or still has for all we know) something to cover up

pearl ratted out another coach years ago for the same thing. he was blackballed by his peers for it until he got hired at ut. ever think how a program with no bb history got such an awesome coach? because noone would touch him. he was stuck in d2 forever. coaches don't turn each other in the ncaa just finds out. pearl is a snake. can he actually coach? yes. cam he sell out stadiums? yes. is he dirty like calipari? yes. it is what it is. you never hear the top coaches involved in any scandals. they don't have to they got their programs going the way they want it. and bb is not like fb. there are only so many spots and kids line up to go to duke, ky, north carolina, kansas. only when a program sucks do you constantly have to keep breaking rules to get them in.
