Rocky finish for Pearl?

Was today's 30-point shellacking at the hands of Michigan the end for Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl?

Michigan won 75-45 in a game that wasn't as close as the margin indicated.

Now how long will it be before the powers that be at Tennessee decide to either keep Pearl or fire him.

Pearl lied to the NCAA during a recruiting probe and even went as far as asking the parents of recruits to lie to the NCAA as well.

Tennessee cut Pearl's pay and the SEC suspended him for eight games.

While the NCAA has yet to hand down any punishment, the school may try to lessen the blow to the school by firing Pearl.
