The official oscar Pearl talking points thread
« on: March 27, 2012, 07:07:02 PM »
So! You are a Wildcat fan very interested in hiring of our new basketball coach, and you probably want someone good. For KSU, the best possible hire is oscar Pearl. I'm sure you have many questions about why KSU should hire oscar, so I will address them in order.

Question 1: Is he any good?

Answer: Yes!

Quote
Milwaukee (Horizon League) (2001–2005)
2001–2002    Milwaukee    16–13    11–5    3rd    
2002–2003    Milwaukee    24–8    13–3    2nd    NCAA 1st Round
2003–2004    Milwaukee    20–11    13–3    1st    NIT 1st Round
2004–2005    Milwaukee    26–6    14–2    1st    NCAA Sweet Sixteen
Milwaukee:    86–38    51–13
   
Tennessee (Southeastern Conference) (2005–2011)
2005–2006    Tennessee    22–8    12–4    1st (East)    NCAA 2nd Round
2006–2007    Tennessee    24–11    10–6    2nd (East)    NCAA Sweet Sixteen
2007–2008    Tennessee    31–5    14–2    1st (East)    NCAA Sweet Sixteen
2008–2009    Tennessee    21–13    10–6    T–1st (East)    NCAA 1st Round
2009–2010    Tennessee    28–9    11–5    3rd (East)    NCAA Elite Eight
2010–2011    Tennessee    19–15    8–8    5th (East)    NCAA 2nd Round
Tennessee:    145–61    65–31    
Total:    231–99

Summary: 4 Sweet 16's, one Elite 8, 6 NCAA tourneys in 6 years at Tennessee, 2 NCAA's and one NIT in 4 years at Milwaukee.

NEXT.

Question 2: Won't we get put on probation?

Answer: NO. First of all, everyone should read this article from Mike Decoursey:

http://aol.sportingnews.com/ncaa-basketball/feed/2010-09/vols-penalties/story/hiring-oscar-pearl-would-be-well-worth-the-risk

We all know oscar has a three year "show cause" that can explain very well, including the NCAA:

Quote
A show-cause penalty is issued by the Committee on Infractions and explains how a coach or another administrator must have their athletically related duties limited, regardless of employer, for a set amount of time. If the person is now employed at a different school than where the violations occurred and they do not agree with the limitations, the school can appear before the committee to 'show cause' why they think the penalty should be reduced or changed.

He is banned from off-campus recruiting until August 2014, which I assume is the only punishment that will follow him. Challenge anyone that questions this to point to specific sanctions beyond the recruiting restriction. (they won't have a clue).


Question 3: LMAO, Currie won't want someone that is an NCAA risk, right?!?

Answer: Is Currie a pasty frat-parting resume builder? You bet your ass he is! What would look better on a resume than bringing on the most successful coach in Tennessee history? You clowns need to remember that Currie (sort of) hired and worked with this guy at Tennessee. He knows him. Currie has shown the NCAA that he takes a hard line on compliance with the Pullen/Kelly situation and ESPECIALLY with the Jamar situation. Currie has created perfect situation to take a guy like Pearl. "Look, I worked with oscar before and do not bend the rules on compliance. I was willing to run off one of the greatest coaches in KSU history in the name of compliance. oscar will not be a problem with me." And the NCAA is all about money, and personalities like oscar Pearl make them a lot more money than boring losers like Tad Underwood.

Question 4: But he can't recruit! How will we survive if our coach can't recruit???

Answer: oscar can recruit, but not off campus. He can evaluate off-campus, which means he can be seen at AAU events and High School shootarounds. He can recruit on-campus. His assistants will be able to recruit off-campus without restraint, and here is what they can sell:

Quote
The recruiting ban will be an overwhelming challenge, but every assistant coach selling Pearl’s next program would be selling the guy who made Dane Bradshaw a star as a 6-3 power forward, who made Chris Lofton into an All-American and who turned the Volunteers into a national power.

Additionally, off-campus recruiting bans aren't a death sentence. Kelvin Sampson landed Eric Gordon to Indiana while not being able to recruit off campus. We also need to think beyond the next two recruiting classes and toward the future - guys like Brad Underwood and Tad Boyel scare the crap out of me after the current roster starts to leave, but oscar Pearl has developed winners at EVERY level he's coached at. Suck it up for two years and think about the long term.


Question 5: I don't want my coach to be slimy and I don't want to sell my soul for wins. Isn't Pearl slimy?

Answer: HEY GUESS WHAT?!? KANSAS STATE HIRED THE BIGGEST SLEEZEBALL COACH IN THE WORLD WHEN THEY HIRED BOB HUGGINS. You can say it didn't work out, but in the end, it was the most brilliant hire any program has made in the last ten years. The turnaround KSU encountered is unprecedented, and it was all because we took a risk on a coach with "baggage".


ALSO, do you know what oscar did that makes him so "dirty"? He had a barbecue with his team and invited some recruits. Then he lied about it.


Question 6: And?

Answer: That's it.



In summary, use this information to get out there and get us to hire oscar Mother rough ridin' Pearl.

One last question:

Is he a charismatic coach that would not only bring a lot of success on the court but also keep K-State in the national headlines and on the front page of ESPN with his adorable antics and all around loveable behavior?

YUP.  and in all honesty, this is the most important variable for this hire.

So have we decided on a Twitter official hashtag to try to get trending? Because we need one. #pearl4ksu?

GO MAKE IT HAPPEN

Eddie Foglers just don't grow on trees and Currie and Shultz are entirely too straight laced to even consider him.  If oscar had no Show Claws, it would be a no brainer for Currie. 

I mean, I never thought Weiser would ever consider Huggins...and he didn't...it took Fogler CONVINCING him to....I mean, Huggins was the first guy I wanted and Weiser's dumbass said he wasn't even considering Huggins.  And that's Weiser.  Currie's ass is much tighter.  Even if Currie gets desperate he won't hire him. 

I agree that Pearl is extremely attainable and would crawl to get this job.  I agree that the "sanctions" are pure window dressing and wouldn't be all that restrictive.  But not with this AD.  He just doesn't have it in him to make this hire.
