Bruce Pearl Is Anti-American

Posted by Matt on March 17, 2008

 Editor’s Note: Discuss this article NOW over at ACC vs. SEC! – Bruce Pearl Is Anti-American


To go along with behavior that may one day land him a lemonade-date and a seat with Chris Hanson from Dateline NBC, TNB’s favorite womanizer Bruce Pearl may now be able to add being anti-American to his repertoire of excellence.

The little talked about, yet tough, NCAA Tournament draw for Pearl’s Tennessee squad is #15 seeded American University and, after much deliberation, I have decided that it is un-American to root against American. If Bruce and his rowdy band of Volunteers don’t surrender by Friday’s tip-off, the FBI may very well add Coach Pearl to their Most Wanted Terrorist list, pushing him directly to the top (they should probably go ahead and add him to that Sex Offender’s Registry, too, while they’re at it…).

American University, representative of the Patriot League, uses the bald eagle as official mascot and sports red, white, and blue as official team colors. It is American University…it’s our Nation’s university.  Think about it.  When it comes to this matchup, how could one not root for American on Friday? Dare I say you’d be a Benedict Arnold not to?

(This post may, or may not, stem from my general distaste for most everything Tennessee.)

The face of the enemy:

    Chris Hanson is unamerican. He entraps just like the police do. Set you up, bait you and draw you in. Bang your gone, done. life ruin for ratings.

    You’re just jealous because Pearl got to feel up Erin Andrews and you didn’t. For that matter, I’m jealous of Pearl for the same reason.

    Yeah, Bobby…I think you missed the sarcasm…I hate politics.

    And yes, Moon, I am quite jealous. You know me all too well…

  5. Good sarcasm Matt and great writeup!

    Only you would think up an interesting article about what will likely be a very one-sided matchup.

    Then again, only you would probably write such an interesting, yet sarcastic article and get replies about the police setting people up and politics.
