He suspended 4 players and beat Kansas that was ranked #1

He played without Lofton for about 6 games due to an ankle injury in 2007/2008 year.
He played without Lofton and lost, what, 4 of 6?

We have two more years of this crap and then Tennessee can get its coach back.

Santa Claus will coach this team before Bruce Pearl will. He will never ever ever ever ever ever coach the Vols again. Sorry.

Pearl over Martin all day. I don't understand the hate for pearl on here. The dude put Tennessee back on the map. I hope Martin does great things for us, but to say you would rather have Martin over Pearl from what we have seen so far is crazy.

I'll take Martin 10 out of 10 times.

Why's that? I just don't see the logic behind that at all. Pearl is a proven winner, we haven't seen that yet of Martin.

Move the hell on people. He's never coming back and for good reason. Honestly, these types of threads are embarrassing. Martin vs. Pearl has nothing to do with it.

I think Coach Martin is a great HC, I have no complaints, but Bruce Pearl was on another level, the guy turned UT into a powerhouse. He will never coach here again but if it were actually possible I would be completely on board with replacing Martin with him.

His overall D1 record is 231-99 and 145-61 at Tennessee, impressive stuff.

Bruce Pearl is a cancer. He was surgically removed like a cancer. Too bad UT got the bad press for his ridiculous actions. We don't need coaches such as Bruce regardless of their record. Does a good win percentage justify cheating and then lying about it?

NO.
