Not me. I don't want my school to hire known cheaters. He and Auburn are made for each other. He's probably just there to learn how to cheat and not get caught.

This will be a good hire for Auburn if he can stay out of trouble.

I was kind of hoping he would go to Washington State. Imagine all the fun their AD and compliance office would have with him and Mike Leach on staff.

Bruce pearl is the devil. He invited a kid to a cookout he wasn't supposed to be at and lied to the NCAA about. big freaking whoop. he got hammered because he lied and told others to as well. The NCAA couldn't care less if you break the rules just don't lie about.

He made a mistake. No big deal. Regardless of what you think of him or Auburn, this is a great hire for them and a bad one for everyone else. The SEC just got tougher.

Yeah I don't know about that. Sounds like sour grapes from some of our fans. The guy knows how to coach and turn around programs quickly. I don't like him either, but hell a lot people don't like Frank.

Default Re: Auburn Hires Pearl

Is it sour grapes? I'm sure every coach would like be able to take top recruits on cookouts and wine and dine them whenever they wanted, but they don't because they know they aren't supposed to do that to get an unfair advantage. It may not be a career-ending infraction, but it is definitely cheating and a big deal. Which is why he lied about it and tried to cover it up. Which makes him not just a cheater, but a cheater who is willing to lie to defend his cheating ways, and is only remorseful after he was caught and punished.

It was a big deal, and it was no mistake. And yeah, Auburn is a great employer for a blatant cheater. They'll probably teach him how to lie better. It's a perfect match. The must have the lead professor there in the subject of "plausible deniability."

This is a great hire for Auburn and for the SEC. This isn't football. Another team having a good coach doesn't hurt us anywhere near as much as it raises the profile of the league. In basketball we can all be successful together.

The more good teams we have in the SEC the better we have a chance to look on the national scene, and the more publicity we get by association. Good teams in the league bring the others up because they give those teams a tougher schedule and make the league as a whole seem more legit.

Good hire Auburn.

Slam dunk hire by Auburn.
A scumbag athletic department hires a scumbag coach, perfect fit.

Pearl will get his players in, no matter what.
Auburn will be a big nuisance in the West..and honestly, in few years, I could see Auburn ruling the west with this hire.

Happy with Frank but Pearl's name is the first one I thought of after Horn got axed. Knew it wouldn't happen cause NCAA investigation was still fresh. Auburn got a good coach.

Glad we have a coach with honor that is winning the right way on Rocky Top right now. I always loved Bruce, but this feels even better.

Hope we pay Coach Martin and lock him up for a long time.

Congrats.

Yea Martin wasn't as honorable as I thought. Oh well, AD didn't want to lock him up long term so I guess him leaving was best.

Will enjoy watching Pearl at Auburn.
