I still will never forget him signing a couple hundred autographs at a kids camp AFTER he was fired. It was a soccer camp. I hope Martin gets it done, but would love Pearl if he does not.

We don't really have to wait until the Show Cause expires. The university would only have to go before the ncaa and promise to put restrictions on his activities until the Show Cause expiration date. At this point, I'd be willing to settle for a temporarily restricted Bruce Pearl over an unrestricted Cuonzo.

Another thing that I'm constantly amazed at. After about year 2, the helter shelter, pressing style of play disappeared. After that it was tractor pull style basketball much like we're seeing now.

This fanbase has no right to make fun of Alabama fans with "the Bear is dead" jokes anymore. Between the Fulmerites and Pearlophiles, no fanbase in college sports is worse about living in the past than UT. Both coaches deserved their terminations and neither one will ever be on a UT sideline again.

I like Bruce. Met the guy, he saw me wearing a UT shirt and his face lit up when he saw my face face lite up. Very friendly man.

Because you automatically think because both won in the past they'd immediately start winning again? Because they're "better than what we have"?
