BP as analyst.

I haven't really seen him until today at halftime for the NCSU/Duke game... Now, it's only a few minutes, but I love to watch the guy talk. I know he screwed up here, but that's in the past. Guy knows basketball, and he is so passionate about it. He smiles whenever he talks, he loves basketball. I really hope he gets back into coaching soon, because college basketball needs Bruce Pearl.

Not exactly in the past yet, but on the bright side, you may have a new mid-major or D-II team to cheer for in the future.

I mean, the effects arent in the past, but his actions are in the past, both good and bad. I think it's time for people to start pulling for the guy again. He's one hell of a ball coach that's for sure.

Me too. Regardless of what he did, we do still owe him the gratitude for revitalizing this program.

Agree. & moreover, he still lives in Knoxville, still loves UT & the big time job we gave him, & were not for his error, he'd still be here & still be loving coaching the Big Orange in TBA. So, we need to wish him well.

Couldn't agree more. There are few, if any, personalities in college basketball as charismatic as Bruce Pearl. When he was at UT, the entire SEC was more exciting, partly due to the dynamics of Pearl vs. Calipari, Pearl vs. Donovan, Pearl vs. Stallings. The league is as dull as it's ever been this season. Cuonzo may yet surprise us, but he doesn't exactly bring the excitement.
