Say what you will about Bruce Pearl, but it is hard to doubt his passion, excitement, or willingness to endear himself to his program’s fans. Immediately after landing in Auburn, the new Tigers coach found himself surrounded by hoards of AU basketball fans. What did he do? Join the students in a mosh pit, of course.
After some jumping around, SEC Championships were discussed, “War Eagle!” was shouted, thanks were given, and cell phones rings were jokingly admonished. All things considered, it seems like Pearl’s introduction in Auburn is going pretty well.
