If you were to say to me, “Rob, trick shot videos are old and played out,” you’d be absolutely correct.
How many times do we need to see these kids make shots from the upper deck or the other end of the court before we realize anyone can make those shots if they just shoot enough?
Well, this one is a little bit different, because it’s Auburn head coach Bruce Pearl hitting a shot from the upper deck and then losing his mind:
You’d have a hard time convincing me that reaction isn’t genuine. He really does seem like the kind of guy that would spend 20 minutes shooting from the upper deck of his arena, and celebrating like he just won the lottery when he finally gets one to go.
Here’s a fun thought for you: Imagine what would happen if Pearl hit the last cup in OT of a grueling, Game 7 beer pong series?
That would be the viralest college hoops viral video ever.
