UT math

UT has finally announced that their new Men's Basketball Coach is Bruce Pearl. He comes from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and he's had a great deal of success has a coach.

He is not, however, Bob Knight, Roy Williams, Jim Boeheim, or Eddie Sutton. Don't tell that the the UT Athletic Department, though. Their site lists Pearl as the second-fastest coach in Division I to reach the 300 win plateau; ahead of Knight, Sutton, and Boeheim, and trailing only Roy Williams. That's good company. If only it was true. Those four other coaches won 300 games in Division I, but Pearl spent his first 9 seasons (and 231 wins) at D-II power Southern Indiana.

He's a great coach. He might even crack the fastest five coaches to 300 wins, but he sure ain't there yet. How's about we keep expectations in the ballpark for at least a couple months with this one?

This just goes to show what a hell of a coach Pat Summitt is. You don't have to doctor her numbers one bit, and she still comes out nearly three times ahead of where the UT Athletic Department would like you to think Pearl is.
