Our longtime enmity toward Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl was founded in adolescence and is probably going to stick with us til death, even if the guy ended up taking down a squadron of Al Qaeda operatives. Sometimes, you can't shake your past.

So instead of praising him for having a sense of humor about himself after he painted his chest for last night's Tennessee-Duke women's game — which is what we'd do with pretty much any other coach — we'd like to instead say, "Hee hee, look at his gut, what a tool." Forgive us.
