I’d take Barnes over Pearl any day of the week.
Bruce nuked himself more than the program, but yes, you can argue Rick is better than Bruce purely because Rick hasn't done something like that. Their records are pretty similar, with Bruce actually going one step further in the NCAAT.He’s better than Pearl just by not nuking his own program with a lie and getting a Show Cause.
I'm not sure I'd describe him as a terrible human being...if we're speaking about coaches I'd reserve that term for guys like Urban Meyer. He just plays fast and loose with NCAA rules.Pearl might be a terrible human but his teams were so much more fun to watch. Giv eme Bruce
