People asking to give Martin more time did not use Pearl as an excuse. After some bad games, people came on and asked to get Pearl back. Frankly it is not relevant to our current state. He left Martin a mediocre roster last year- no returning starters and no solid guards. Martin hasn't recruited PG real well but I am giving him a chance. Next year will be critical for him.

Can't refute it because I don't know. But I believe Jenkins committed to Vandy pretty early. Jenkins would have been a great player on a Pearl team, but I swear I remember at the time hearing that he was a Vandy lock no matter what.

It will never be as good unless Pearl is rehired after his ban expires next year!

Could we please stop acting like we're talking about John Wooden? I liked him while he was here, but it's over.

Why? I loved Bruce and did not want him fired. But our fan base HAS to move on. We can't compare. If we start comparing, we may never find a coach we are satisfied with. He took the school the furthest in the tourney so basically he could be considered a once in a lifetime hire. He F'ed it up. Move on.

We had a 7 point lead against UNC in the Elite 8 with 5 minutes to go and I'd say theSEC was better in the late 90s. We played with a lot of great teams

I'm not sure about everyone else but I never ask for Pearl back and I never said CCM doesn't deserve more time. I'm sick of the constant comparing of every coach and player that comes through this University myself but it amazes me that people still blame football on Fulmer and basketball on Pearl. This bk is poorly coached and CCM has failed to recruit at an SEC level and to blame Pearl for that is just stupid. Our players are not progressing and generally just look lost.

His first and last year's record were mediocre. He had talent and underachieved in the tourney. But he did have some good wins.
