Pearlgate Details Begin to Emerge: Vols Reported NCAA Violations

Pearlgate Stuff

ESPN via FOIA has acquired some additional details on the circumstances that led to the University of Tennessee's self-sanctions. Nothing shocking in the article; just more details about the who, what, and when.

So basically here is where we stand.  From what I am gathering, it is unlikely that the NCAA will hit Bruce Pearl with anything harsher than what his contract protects him against.  This means that the University likely won't be able to terminate him for cause, and it would therefore have to be an expensive termination.  If you take Pearl at his word that he has no intention of resigning, then the logical conclusion is that Bruce Pearl is here to stay.  And I'm cool with that.
