Even as a big UK fan, I think UT screwed up by canning Pearl.  They should have kept him and rode out the storm.

this doesnt prove anything about our fans except they loved Pearl and have a bad choice of song selection.

Without Cal you guys arent even able to speak right now, Gillespie isnt that long ago...

What sucks is what he lied about instead of telling the truth and his issues minimal.

Now TN on the verge of being completely irrelevant for the next decade.

I am a Tennessee fan but the song is kind of a strange choice the guy did not die. I will miss bruce though why because he put the butts in the seats and got the fan base excited about Tennessee basketball. To all you UK fans look I like UK I would love to see them win out.  but you got problems of your own. Last years team was as talented as I have ever seen. but you did not win why because to many "Hot dogs" and not enough buns. I do not know if winning it all is possible with freshman heavy teams. but, that is coach Cals Specialty and he almost did it with Memphis so we will see. Bruce I am sorry it came to this we will miss you. Fire Mike Hamilton AD now........

I keep hearing about UK being so great, yes they do play good ball.  But they are just a clearinghouse for the NBA.  When are they going to stress acedemics and start graduating players.  University, that's a big joke!!

Are you kidding me? You'd think this guy was Coach Smith or something. Jesus, Bill Guthridge could outcoach this greasy clown!

James,   surely you are kidding!! This IDIOT would have you at Mizzou on probation in no time! You have unfortunately lost a fine & "clean" coach with Andersen, but dont make a return to the days of "Quin whatever". Pearl would make those days look good. Pearl is a lying s.o.> !! Always has been...always will be. In his days as Iowa asst, he lied & cheated to steal Deon Thomas (who had already committed to Illinois) to come to iowa. All the evidence pointed at him, but he had friends in high places at the time & he got off scott free & sent Lou Henson's career downward. Lou always ran one of the cleanest programs in the country. The ncaa's final verdict said "even though we can not find any wrong doing on Illinois' part, that doesnt mean they didnt do it" ?!? Pearl's old college roommate at the top of the ncaa bailed him out at the expense of Lou Henson. Now, the lying s.o.> gets caught lying to the ncaa again. They give him several chances to tell the truth, but once a lying s.o.>, always a lying s.o.<. But when they put a picture in his face proving his lie, all of a sudden, he gets religion, and comes clean!! The press, who love this lying s.o.<, praise him for telling the truth. Well, it's easy to tell the truth when the DNA test comes in! Anybody can admit to stealing the cookie when their hand is caught in the jar! This guy is a wart on the face of college athletics, and hopefully, the only job he can find will be as towel boy for some AAU team!!!

Tennesse needs to "clean house" starting with the AD next. First Football program, then Basketball. Maybe the should have Pat Summitt running things!!
