Andy Katz: Tennessee Basketball to Receive Sanctions Tomorrow


ESPN's Andy Katz is reporting that Tennessee will receive its penalties tomorrow, based on sources telling him that the NCAA has given the school a heads up about it. Katz says Bruce Pearl will receive a multi-year show cause penalty (the worst available for a coach, as it makes one essentially un-employable) while his three assistants will receive one-year show cause penalties each. The report from Katz doesn't mention Tennessee football, which presumably doesn't have long to wait to hear on its penalties either.

Tennessee Self-Imposes Two Years Probation


Tennessee has announced its self-imposed penalties in response to the violations racked up by former coaches Bruce Pearl and Lane Kiffin. The headliner is two years of probation, but it does not include the loss of any scholarships. Hit the link for the rest of the details.

Look For Bruce Pearl To Land At Iowa In 2012


Or, y'know, don't. (BHGP FUN KORNER: See how many idiotic notions you can find in this article! We found eighty.)

Bruce Pearl Reportedly Has Been Fired


Three immediate reactions: 1. I don't think Tennessee had any other choice. 2. Whoa! 3. This opens the door for Mark Fox to have a monster recruiting year. With two of our nearest rivals searching for coaches, he ought to have a golden opportunity to coax some Atlanta talent to Athens. Go 'Dawgs!

SEC suspends Bruce Pearl 8 games


Assuming this is all accurate and is what will take place, then Pearl's first game back on the sidelines would be in Rupp on February 8. Heh.

Bruce Pearl hopes for the best - Luke Winn, SI.com

Are you sure that the worst is not yet to come? "I don't know," Pearl told SI.com in an interview following the clinic. "We did what we felt like we needed to do, to take steps proactively to penalize ourselves. I think the penalties were unprecedented in some scope. But we made mistakes. We provided false and misleading information to the NCAA. "I should be made an example of, and I am -- I'm embarrassed. But I hope that the things we did don't rise to the level of termination, because we run a clean program. We got investigated in a lot of areas."

Lovin' Pearl, Big Baby and UT Hoops


Big Baby has seen what it takes to get into the NBA. So, he's decided to work this offseason. I mean, really work. For a change. Personal trainer, lots of shots, the whole meal deal. For a young man who used to have a couch glued to his very wide behind and a sack of fast food stacked on his gut, Big Baby's transformation into physical awesomeness should be coming this year. (Or at least not sucking wind after 5 minutes of play). Brian Williams can be a rip down the rim dunking and rebounding machine - if he gets strong enough physically and intense enough attitudinally. He's working on the physical. Maybe the meanness is coming as well? Chism's talent alone couldn't quite get him there because he's a 3-4 tweener in the NBA (body of a 3, played an NBA-equivalent 4, way too small for a 5). JP's talent and relations didn't work either. Maybe close but no cigar woke Big Baby up? I love that Bruce Pearl has the connections to get him what he needs to give Big Baby the best shot at being a very good college player with a shot at the NBA as a role player.

As always, Pearl (along with Chris Lofton and Brandon Crump) offers great perspective on the balance between tradition and change.
