….wow…barring a complete collapse…is probably going to take out 1 seed N Carolina…
Whatever you personally feel about Bruce Pearl… the man wins at a high level…
Should he be seriously considered for the Arkansas job?
Personally, I hope Yurachek is looking around and not trying to rush this hire, but from what everyone, from national sports writers to Arkansas sports writers to regular message board posters, are saying is that Kelvin Sampson is basically option 1a thru 1z for Arkansas.
No he shouldn’t be considered. He’s had shady assistants and he once hosted a bbq at his house. He’s a criminal that’s only concerned with winning. Oh sure he coachws an entertaining style of basketball and his teams win at a high clip. He’s made Auburn, a school with zero tradition, into must see TV, but this is collegiate athletics we are talking about. There’s more to life than winning.
Yeah right. Of course he should be considered. This ain’t Harding. It’s SEC basketball.
LOL. Even Joe Kleine says that if the NCAA isn’t going to enforce any rules, then go for it. He doesn’t care anymore, and I don’t either.
Either you want to win, or you want to make excuses for not winning. You, especially, and others make great excuses for not winning. Very skillful.
Cheat, coach better, recruit better, develop better. I don’t care. Just start winning.
Auburn has a fairly recent title in football and is in the Elite 8 in basketball. Arkansas? Bubkus.
You look down your nose on Auburn because they pay players a little. Who gives a damn? I’ll tell you what. Their fans have had a hell of a lot more fun the past 10 years or so than ours have. And in the big scheme of things, whatever they pay their players amounts to a hill of beans. Makes no impact at all in this great big world of ours.
While I only believe Pearl bends rules, so did Sampson, so does Cal, so does Self, so does Roy Williams…I loved Mike and wish he was still here. But recruiting is hard, I would take Pearl in a second. He wins everywhere, he has an exciting brand and he is a likable personality. Oh and he can Recruit. It won’t happen but he would be a heck of a hire. His tempo is what we wanted here with Mike, they run and gun and were 3rd in nation in steals. That’s what I hoped Fastest 40 was but it takes players and we just didn’t get enough of them
I 100% think he cheats, I think he maybe even more dirty than Cal (and that’s saying something), but you’re correct, he can coach. His players are exactly what I expect to be on the Hill. He would win here, and most would love it.
Again, I’m not advocating for Pearl, I understand what getting him means.
