Wow that didn't take long! Auburn has decided to hire Pearl as their next basketball coach. Apparently he can't even interact with recruits until August, but he can evaluate them during July. This is just bound for disaster, he made it pretty clear that he doesn't believe rules need to be followed.
You have to wonder what Auburn is thinking. They are only a couple years away from the Cam Newton scandal, and it was only about 18 months ago that SI had a story on Auburn changing players grades so they coule play in that championship game. Of course nothing happend in either instance, but you can only play with fire so much before getting burned.
But I guess Auburn felt like they needed to live up the the SEC motto, "If you ain't cheatin', you ain't tryin'"..
