Bruce Pearl Arrives at Auburn

BY foxsports • March 18, 2014

Auburn fans just welcomed Bruce Pearl on his arrival to campus and Pearl's arrival at the airport is already the most exciting thing to happen in SEC basketball this year. 

Of course Pearl told fans he wants the same kind of reception when they win an SEC championship at Auburn. 

Jumping in a student mosh pit, mocking the guy who had his cell phone go off, and leading cheers? Yeah, this is all vintage Pearl.

I'm a little surprised he didn't exit the plane shirtless with, "Die Alabama," written on his chest and immediately have the eagle land on his outstretched hand. 

Auburn fans have already forgotten about Tony Barbee. Meanwhile, Tennessee fans are watching this video while silent tears roll down their faces. All, that is, except for Dave Hart and the UT administration who didn't want to see this kind of fun, frivolity and excitement associated with their basketball program. Meanwhile, the media covering UT basketball are gearing up for nap time with Cuonzo Martin today. They get free juice boxes!  

Of course we can't show this video without also showing Jay Jacobs return after hiring Gene Chizik. 

Bit different reception, don't you think?
