Woke All-Star Dan Wolken Is Mad Bruce Pearl Supports Senator Tim Scott

Dan Wolken, who made it all the way to the Identity Politics Final Four of the OutKick Woke All-Star Challenge, took some time off after his loss to Karen Rovell, but he's back to his old ways and this time he has his woke sights set on Auburn basketball coach Bruce Pearl.

What crime did Coach Pearl commit? He agreed with South Carolina Senator Tim Scott's response Wednesday night to President Biden's address to Congress. That's all it took for Karen Wolken to snap to it and get all woke.

"Bruce Pearl's Twitter feed is regularly a font of right wing politics but it's certainly an interesting choice to see a college coach who recruits Georgia vigorously promote a speech that explicitly endorsed the controversial voting law in the state," Wolken tweeted.

Wolken was joined by fellow blue checkmark elite Jeff Pearlman, famous for his Sports Illustrated interview with John Rocker, in blasting Pearl for agreeing with Senator Scott. The recurring theme from the woke checkmarks is how this stance should hurt Pearl when he goes to recruit the inner-city.

Well, fellas, if Bruce's stance is going to hurt him, that should please you. If these two hate Bruce so much this shouldn't be so triggering to them. They should be rejoicing with Bruce's stance. They should be so happy coaches who recruit against Bruce have this firepower.

Bruce, 61, has figured out a way to stick around college basketball for 17 years, even after a few meetings with NCAA investigators. Karen and Jeff are nuts if they think some random tweet about supporting Tim Scott's rebuttal of Biden is going to be what takes him out, what cancels his college coaching career.

Good try, wokesters.
