Pat to be without Bruce for awhile

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Southeastern Conference commissioner Mike Slive has suspended Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl for the Volunteers' first eight conference games as punishment for violating NCAA rules and misleading investigators.

In essence this is a slap on the wrist for willfully lying to NCAA investigators.  We feel former Indiana coach Sampson did LESS and was fired and practically banned from coaching.  Are you kidding us?  Yes, Sampson was scum and Pearl is a likable guy and winning coach.  But should that matter?
