I agree that people care too much about people's personal lives in sports, but I think the real issue here is that Bobby Petrino lied to his AD about a mistress who he had just given a job in the athletic department. He won't get fired because he wins and the AD can't do better, but eesh that would make for a sketchy work environment.
Probably more people than we would like to admit.
Petrino is a world class a hole, but that doesn't mean he is a good football coach. He didn't do anything illegal, and if we held every person to as high of standards as we do people in the public light, there would be very few left standing. What Petrino did was immoral and the only people he hurt would be his family as well as the engaged woman's family.
