My take on Bruce Pearl's redefining the way we as fans assess and judge the BasketVols: Gate 21: Pearl's Absolute Complaints are welcome... By the way, I noticed some of the Indiana faithful cited...

So How Did the Guest Posters Do?

Well, as Aerobab pointed out, with the end of the week comes the end of the reign of we band or brothers, we happy few, who have done everything in our power to ruin the reputation of Joel’s...
