On Tuesday night, Bruce Pearl made his return to the bench after serving an 8 game suspension for lying to the NCAA. Well, Kentucky fans were aware of that fact and they made Pearl’s return very unpleasant. It was so unpleasant that Pearl requested a security escort at halftime.
“While the students were giving Pearl an eyeful, the fans directly behind the Tennessee bench gave him an earful. Pearl asked security to get involved as he walked off the court at halftime and his assistants appeared to exchange words with several people in Kentucky gear moments before the second half started.
Pearl said he didn’t mind the taunts. The language, however, was another issue.”
So Pearl really expects us to believe that he has a problem with someone’s language? This coming from a guy whose face turns dark red while he is verbally abusing his players.
Like the saying goes, “don’t dish it if you can’t take it”.
