Hello. His name is Bruce. Bruce Pearl.
When meeting with the media on Monday, Auburn’s basketball coach borrowed a quote from American philosopher Forrest Gump to explain his team’s inconsistencies.
Pearl: "My team right now is like a box of chocolates. I don't know what I'm going to get." #MGMAuburn

Auburn (15-8) alternated wins and losses over its past five games and has lost two of its past three SEC contests. The Tigers play host to Mississippi State on Tuesday before heading to Oxford to play Ole Miss on Saturday. It’s anyone’s guess what type of chocolate Pearl will pull out of the box in those games.
We’ll see if Pearl’s quote works as motivation, or if it’s just a case of stupid is as stupid does.
That’s all we’ve got to say about that.
