Pearl's a cheat and he comes off like a used car salesman. I hope the NCAA steps up.
You know, I really like Pearl. He has a lot of charisma and enthusiasm for the game and his university - he seems like a great guy. I'm not a big fan of how his teams play sometimes, but I do like him as a coach. I really like that he and Cal don't like each other.
However, this new scandal does make me wonder if he's really just innocently making mistakes or tries to make them. I am too young to remember him, but I think about Valvano with Pearl. Valvano in his highlights and interviews seems like such a great guy, but he ran one of the worst programs in the nation. Valvano cheated like none other in my opinion, and only his unfortunate death has caused the media to forget about his teams' turmoil. I hope Pearl isn't just another Valvano - great guy on the surface, but horrible cheat. I do think Pearl was just complacently following the rules, because he was just too busy having a good time.
