    "The newly-hired Auburn basketball coach volunteered 20 minutes to allow students a chance, at $2 a pop, to dunk him in a water tank outside the Haley Student Center on campus Wednesday. Why? For charity, he said.

    "I’m embarrassed as any 54-year-old by taking his shirt off," Pearl said. "But if you can’t make fun of yourself, who can? I’m a pretty big target."

    This is why his fans and players like him so much because he comes across as just a fun person to be around.

    Good for him. I've always liked the guy.

    Still, I was hoping the last time we saw him bare-chested (below) would be the last.

    Agree on all points.

    I had a hard time not liking him while he was a Vol. Now, after his time on ESPN, I downright love the guy.

    Why? You can't always post pics pertaining to just Gator players/coaches or babes in general. You have to think of the other posters that like Pearl and are interested in what he's doing thus far at Auburn. Although this is primarily a Gator basketball forum, other fans from other schools come to this board as well as you. I think it was admirable of Pearl to do this type of off the court stuff for charity. It was intended to show the other side of Pearl doing something in a self-deprecating way. Sorry, you didn't see it that way.

    Maybe you expected me to photoshop pics of Pearl resembling Patric Young's physique or something. :)

    Yep - Jag is legendary for his contributions, esp. the ones with . . . ahem. . . shirtless individuals. These pics were . . . different. ;)
