I've not seen it on here yet, but I seen on another forum where Tenn. let Bruce Pearl go today. Wonder who they'll get to replace him?

He was actually fired a couple of days ago. The list of replacements I saw was pretty sorry IMO...

Art, that picture is great. :D

How funny would it be if Geno from UCONN left the girl's program and came to Tennessee to coach? I know it would never happen, but could you imagine him and Summitt co-existing on that campus? Just a thought....

On a semi-related note. It looks like Mike Anderson is leaving Missouri to coach at Arkansas. Pay grade goes from 500k to a cool 2 mil per year.

Maybe I am in the minority but I really liked having Pearl at Tenn. He had fire and was great for the rivalry with UK. I will hate to see him leave.

I am not a Tn fan to ANY extent, but always liked and respected Pearl, and think that he really done a lot for that program. I like his energy and the bond he seemed to have with the players. I don't think he'll ever contend for a National Championship, but think he's a good guy/coach. Hate to see him leave TN. Best of wishes coach....

Yeah, well having them over to your house for a cook out will bond you to your players. Too bad you can't do that. Or lie about it.
