Not at all, I think the NCAA could even say there is a lack of institutional control, he needs to be gone imo. What Pearl did 95% of coaches do, he just royally screwed himself by lying about it. Hamilton seems to be in over his head.

Seems that way to me too... And these were self-imposed sanctions, right? You think the NCAA is gonna come along with their own punishment and kick 'em while they're down?

It sounded like UT was pretty sure the self imposed penalties were so severe that the NCAA wouldn't impose anymore. However I wouldn't be surprised to see them take a 1 scholarship loss or something to that affect.

Yeah that's what somebody on VolNation said... Somebody also brought up the point that with the salary cut and keeping him on campus this basically amounts to a one-year suspension (minus taking away coaching duties) for Pearl...

Ya, I actually think Tennessee did a good job with the self imposed penalties, hopefully that will be enough. Just a bad day for Tennessee.

I just got back in from running and Pearl really really screwed up for them to self impose this on him. I highly doubt the NCAA doesn't add to the punishment for the University this time because of it. It's one thing to cheat, but to try and cover it up is an institutional problem.

I agree, lying is really unacceptable. He better learn from this and never even attempt something like this again.

I am extremely disappointed and embarassed by Coach Pearl lying. This is terrible. For what it's worth, I do think that the self-imposed penalties weren't too lenient.

How much more is it going to take to get Mike Hamilton's sorry behind out as Athletic Director? The Bruce Pearl hire was the ONLY thing that the buffoon has gotten right in his 7 years as AD, who just lied to the NCAA.

It was disgraceful how Hamilton fired Coach Fulmer, a Tennessee legend, and then hired Kiffin, the biggest idiot possible to replace him. Hamilton should have been held accountable for that. I refuse to buy tickets or merchandise from the University til they get rid of Hamilton.

Totally agree with this post...not sure how you can keep Hamilton AD after this latest debacle.

vol fans bruce pearl cheated and then he lied to cover it up and the best thing vol fans want is mike hamilton fired. LOL I mean come on guys bruce pearl is the one who did this not mike hamilton. i think mike should be fired because of the kiffin and dooley hiring and how it went down, but bruce pearl in many places would be fired for what he did with the ncaa. he did what the indiana coach did who was fired. if you had a strong ad and president there is no way bruce pearl keeps his job.

I say give Pearl one more chance. Anything else anywhere near this stupid, unethical or embarassing happens and fire him. The only reason I say to give him one more chance is because he brought a program that fans didn't care about into a SEC Champion contender and has made the NCAA Tournament every year. He's losing a serious amount of money, so maybe that will make him think twice about doing something so stupid, immature and embarassing.

The Indiana coach who did the same thing and was fired is named Kelvin Sampson, who did something similar at Oklahoma and was fired there on account of it there too. If he didn't have a history of cheating, the Hoosiers *might* have given him another chance.

True, UT doesn't have a strong AD. I have a great solution: FIRE the current one and replace him with someone that's useful and has purpose. It's one of many embarassing acts under his watch. How much more has to happen under his watch before the board of trustees gets sick of it and pulls the plug on him. Plus, I don't think he cares about UT, he just cares about money. He has no UT roots and he grew up in North Carolina and went to College at Clemson.

As far as University President goes, they don't have a full time one, just someone who's been an interim for awhile. One needs to get hired badly. Due to not having a President, I'm afraid that Hamilton will have to pull a Damon Evans stunt to get fired....
