New info revealed on Pearl suspension

As Tennessee nears its home and season finale this Sunday against Kentucky, new details have emerged regarding the subject of meetings between Vol head coach Bruce Pearl and the NCAA during and since his violation-induced suspension earlier this season. The SEC suspended Pearl for the first eight games of the conference slate, and he still awaits official punishment from the sport’s governing body. However, the newly discovered interviews shed light on an entirely new layer of the saga.

The interviews seem to indicate that Pearl was an active lobbyist over the duration of his suspension, constantly communicating his desire to have personal input on the level of punishment he would receive. According to an NCAA official who spoke to KSR on the condition of anonymity, Pearl asked the NCAA to “…just fire me. Please. I don’t even know if you can do that, but do it anyway. Just don’t make me coach those guys anymore. They suck.” Given the unorthodox nature of a coach asking the NCAA to step outside its usual punishment procedure and terminate him immediately, compliance officers from the head offices of college athletics began meeting with Coach Pearl to discuss the reasoning behind wanting to be, what the coach termed, “put out of my misery.”

Pearl was more than willing to open up about his desire to leave the school that he has led since 2005, and most of the disconnect centered around the players on this year’s Tennessee roster. The NCAA official said that Pearl expressed a personal distaste for almost every player on the team, with his son, Steven, not escaping the coach’s ire. “The worst,” was how Pearl described his oldest known legitimate male offspring, and it seems to be the younger Pearl’s devotion to off-the-court activities that had his father upset.

The coach lamented his son’s only being photographed once in an act of public indecency, stating his disappointment that Steven had not put the necessary amount of time into what the NCAA called “the pursuit of potential ex-wives.” The officials pressed Pearl on the fact that his son had, indeed, “gotten a lapdance from that one decent looking chick,” but Pearl quickly countered that he had “already hit that” himself and that the skank in question “told me she loved me, but you don’t see me bragging about it. I’m out pounding the pavement looking for her mom.” Pearl bristled when reminded that he would have to see his son at home anyway, but added that he would insist Steven be retained by the school and stress that he be “allowed to stay as long as he wants.”

The antics of several other Vol players contributed to Pearl’s request that the NCAA remove him from his job. Renaldo Woolridge, known to almost no one by his rap name, ‘Swiperboy,’ was named specifically as one of the most frustrating Vols. Despite the player’s own suspension, stemming from being allowed to use a local bar to film what he should have known would be a failed rap video, Pearl said that Woolridge’s negative effect on the team has not subsided. Instead, the coach described, the young rapper still comes to practice and “just stands on the sidelines, rhyming words and waving his hands around,” adding that the completely talentless guard is “as bad as you would expect.”

Pearl noted that he’s tried to have Woolridge removed from team facilities, but most of the players actually like his performances, as tracks such as “Coulda Been a D-League Baller” have resonated with a team full of players that share similar aspirations of basketball greatness. Leading scorer Scotty Hopson isn’t a fan of the musical stylings, though, and said as much when asked about the content of Pearl’s interviews. “Yeah I’m not really feeling the whole ‘D-League’ thing. I have my sights set higher. I’ll be playing in The League. The French Third Division League. You know, real professional stuff.”

Still, Hopson’s starry ambitions didn’t keep him off of Pearl’s list of complaints. “That f—— flat-top. I mean Yahweh help me that thing is ridiculous.” The me-first nature of Hopson’s questionable hair choice appears to be the driving force behind Pearl’s disdain for the style and player. “Making yourself look stupid just to get some attention is not a good idea. And this is coming from someone who once took his shirt off and painted his chest orange on national television.” A photo of Pearl in the body paint, moobs mercifully redacted, was included with the NCAA documents.

Even players who chose a more selfless approach contributed to Pearl’s desire to leave. Center Brian Williams’ inability to control his weight was particularly troubling to his coach, although Williams insists that the weight gain was a result of honoring a commitment to a departed teammate. “When Tyler Smith decided to hold the gun, and all the weed, and my hand, he told me that he was going down but he wanted me to make something of myself, so I did.” Williams continued, “I made myself really, really fat.” Although the senior big man accepted Pearl’s request that he wear a proper support garment under his jersey in order to corral his heft, apparently it didn’t serve to alleviate the problems. Pearl added that now, when Williams takes his jersey off in the locker room, “it’s like staring at the sun. But without the benefit of eventual blindness.”

Pearl’s anger over having such insufferable chumps as players wasn’t the only striking information to come out of the interviews, however. It seems that even the offense for which Pearl is awaiting punishment was a part of the plan to escape his life sentence as Tennessee’s coach. “I set myself up,” Pearl admitted, saying that he organized the barbecue in question knowing that it was a clear violation. He had hoped the NCAA would levy its punishment sooner, though, and questioned the governing body’s performance in the matter. He openly wondered “how it took like six months for them to get me. I had recruits over to my house, took pictures, had someone post them on Facebook and then just flat-out lied about it. Of course I was trying to get myself fired. I’m sleazy, and borderline creepy, but not stupid.”

It’s unclear how these new releases will affect the case moving forward, but for now, Pearl can only await his fate at the hands of the NCAA. He reiterated his desire for a proper resolution to the matter in a statement released concerning the interviews. “I said when this news first surfaced that the University of Tennessee and I are committed to compliance and discipline. That commitment has not wavered, and I will continue to encourage the powers that be to levy the strictest of punishments on me. Seriously guys. Just do it already. I don’t want to go back.”

    I never read much of these joke posts or BTI posts. I love KSR and the humor injected in the factual reporting, especially Beisner. It’s the restrained wit that makes it awesome. The over-the-top goofiness, including Tomlin (Hello Friends, blah blah blah) I vote thumbs down. The OCD BTI posts are exasperating to scroll over , much less actually read.

    Yeah, I have to follow the general consensus and say that this was in very poor taste. Attempt to be (THE) Drew Franklin failed big time. Wittiness has its boundaries, and making this seem like an actual statement lead to an immediate fail. Not one single part was even chuckle-inducing. I hate Tennessee as much as the next guy, but wow you missed the mark (the whole target for that matter).

    Some of this Pearl bashing is beyond low… almost troll worthy. Making fun of weight issues… I honestly don’t even see the humor here. What kind of person, other than BTI, laughs “directly” at someone else’ expense like this? This site is about bringing news in a ridiculous manner, I get it. It’s funny most of the time. But sometimes I feel the line is crossed. I hope that in a time of personal embarrassment, mercy is shown for some of you.

    So, call me “weak” and a “sissy” and all those generic adolescent insults. I doubt half of you who do could even say it to my face. Just remember, we don’t know what the future holds. We’ve held our head in shame as Kentucky fans before, just as Tennessee fans do now. Show some integrity.

    This is a touch of brilliance!!! What a way to sneak up and create such a moment of sheer UK basketball fan unforgetfulness! Fans of other teams absolutely hate us as true UK fans so why not bask in this opportunity. The fact is I like Bruce Pearl being their coach. I get more excited about this rivalry than any other in the SEC. I work with guys who are my friends who are big ut fans and we rib each other continually. As the quotation marks got more frequent and the remarks grew more ridiculous, I found that I was reading, not the cutting edge, breaking news before espn gotta hold of it, but a frickin’ ksr masterpeice that would seperate the men from the boys. Get some stones. Why are so many of you so afraid to step out of your little espn-wanna be analyst mode. This is a ridiculous blog- that’s why it’s been my favorite for years. Yes It gives great analysis and provides accurate statisitics. But if this blog ever loses it’s edge and ability to teeter on the tight rope, it will deteriorate the fact that I check on this site more than any other.

    I am amazed at all the people that are stating that they started reading this without knowing it was fake. People, there have been made up stuff all day on here. Fake letters, fake, facebook pages, etc. Anyone that had been on the site at all today should have known it was made up as soon as they read the title. If you had just logged on for the first time, and didn’t realize it was Tenn. Hate Day, then I can see where the confusion would come in.

    you people. who gives a f..k about pearl. everyone outside of uk and even some uk fans hate and dog coach cal 24/7 and the post wasnt hit the ground rolling hilarious but it does bring a smile to ur face. the ones bashing this post are probably the same ones that praised bti’s post. yeah, i would like some real news and that has dwindled down since matt left but if you think about it, most news on here is about recruits and really there is nothing to talk about. honestly. what breaking news are you people waiting to hear about?

    Love the site, hate Pearl, but this article was terrible and bordering on libel. The site is going from information and analysis with some humor to over the top stupid sophomoric humor. Please go back! Does Matt read and approve this stuff?

    This site just solidified itself as an under 25-year-old trash-talk site. Pathetic. And I was just coming back to enjoy reading some of the post-game and pre-game opinions and facts. But the “not the real Jerry” extremely LONG posts of jibberish, the non-comical crap photo-shops, and other college-level-minded satire, especially this foolishness, gets old, quick. Good luck KSR, you just dropped about 4-5 levels in the world of UK sports commentary. You might be a hit amongst 20-year-olds with bad attitudes, but you will likely lose the more mature readers you’ve somehow managed to hold on to for the past couple of years.

    ‘Just read it again, laughed my a$$ off even harder. If someone can’t tell its a joke by the middle of the 2nd paragraph, I don’t know. I think Beisner is doing a fine job. Hunter Campbell was writing stuff on this website long before Matt turned it over. I didn’t get the Bamoni Jones article that was up early yesterday, but I still like him (as much as I can like a Puke lover). But that doesn’t mean I’m gonna try and throw Beisner under the bus. Keep up the good work guys! Some of these people need to get of their high-horse and quit acting like this site is ESPN.

    Shit like this is a joke… Matt, come back before these clowns destroy KSR… Why don’t you guys write more about recruiting or something that really pertains to UK.. I’m more interested in completing the class of 2011 and looking at the possibilities of our 2012 class… Piss on UT AND Bruce Pearl!! Go Big Blue!!

    104, I agree. The attempts at satire on this site are pathetic. Don’t even scan Fake Gimel or the Not Tiption or even Beisner anymore. I look what Mat has and check out Aaron’s blogs. That’s about it. The site is losing it.

    Some people do nothing but whine about this site and that is what is pathetic! If you don’t like it, don’t visit the site. I don’t like everything that is posted but I don’t get on the comments thread and bash the post/poster. If you want a different site, go the CatsPause and pay them so you can post on their ABSOLUTELY RETARDED message boards that haven’t had breaking news since 2005. Can’t we all just be happy we have a site like this that is FREE!

    I totally agree with post 100 us mature readers are gone..will leave it for the kids under 20 crowd. Can not believe how fast this site went to hell in a hand basket. This stuff is trash starting with the not Tipton shit and phony photos. They are better UK info sites than this and at one time KSR was my # 1 site. IM gone for good and will spread the word. Hunter you are very immature……..

    Very disconcerting… I have seen this before with many companies or endeavors. The person that starts something really cares and is the driving force behind it. When they move on, the individuals that take over are far less into the mix and are removed from the history of the organization. What made it successful is forgotten as the “new” management takes the entity into whatever direction they think is most appropriate, forgetting about “who brought them to the dance”. It is obvious that the current “manager” of this site is out of Matt’s league in terms of “being connected” and therefore is forced to report on less than factual news or to sink to levels of bottom-of-the-barrel sophomoric humor.
