Would Pearl have done the better job with the players available for this season? a resounding NO. It is obvious now that these kids needed consistency and stability the worst way. IMO, Pearl would NEVER have gotten out of these boys what Martin has. Run and gun, playing favs, screaming and yelling constantly is not a recipe for ultimate success. This present crop of players are learning how to play the game AND how to be great young men. That they never would have learned under Pearl.
