â†µIn the wake of Tennessee losing four players to suspension -- including star Tyler Smith -- Pearl talked to the media about the challenge of facing Charlotte, who nearly knocked off a top 25 team (Georgia Tech) within the last week. His choice of words was unfortunate, but completely hilarious. â†µâ†µ
â†µ"We've got weapons. We still have got weapons. ... That's terrible." â†µ
â†µI credit Pearl for just saying what everyone was thinking. We love him for the total lack of a filter. Don't ever change, Coach Pearl. Hopefully the team doesn't still have actual weapons, or he'll have no players pretty soon. â†µâ†µ
