Why? Because he's too old to bare his chest and paint it in school colors? Because he seems to be infatuated with Pat Summitt?

I've never heard of anything negative coming out of that program. Why the haterade?

It stems from pre-UT. I went (before I went to NAU) to Illinois. Bruce Pearl was an assistant at Iowa...

From wikipedia

The Pearl/Thomas incident
During the 1988-1989 basketball season, Pearl, then an assistant coach at the University of Iowa, was at the center of a recruiting scandal involving the University of Illinois. Both Illinois and Iowa were recruiting Deon Thomas, a top high school player from Chicago. Pearl lost this recruiting battle when Thomas committed to Illinois. Thereafter, Pearl called the high school student and surreptitiously recorded a phone conversation with Thomas. During the conversation, Pearl asked Thomas if he had been offered an SUV and cash by Illinois assistant coach Jimmy Collins, and Thomas indicated he had. Pearl then turned over tapes (alleged by Illinois to have been edited) to the NCAA, accompanied by a memo describing the events.[1] However, during the subsequent NCAA investigation, Thomas denied the allegations and said the story was false. The NCAA did not find Illinois guilty of any wrongdoing relating to Thomas' recruitment, finding that the proof provided was not "credible, persuasive and of a kind on which reasonably prudent persons rely in the conduct of serious affairs."[2] However, the investigation uncovered other violations, and Illinois was punished due to a finding of "lack of institutional control" based in part on previous infractions involving Illinois' football program.

When Pearl and Collins were both head coaches for four years in the Horizon League, the two men never engaged in the traditional postgame handshake, reportedly due to lingering feelings over the incident. When Thomas was asked about forgiving Bruce Pearl in a 2005 interview, he was quoted as saying "It's hard to forgive a snake". Thomas went on to play basketball at the University of Illinois, becoming its all time leading scorer.

It should be noted that the state of Iowa is a "one party consent" state, wherein it is perfectly legal for an individual to record a telephone conversation to which that individual is a party. See, Iowa Code Section 727.8 (2007).
