    I think he is commenting more on the fact that his kids have been through three public school systems(assuming they are not home-schooled, then its an entirely different story). That being said, nobody really knows what goes on in the Petrino household, but it can't be easy for kids to move, much less grownups.

    Not to mention that loyalty is not one of the strengths of our current culture, but I digress.
    Absolutely true. Barry Switzer had fantastic success his first 6-8 years at Oklahoma. A couple of National Championships and very nearly won at least 2 more. The athletic complex at OU is named after him now But, in the early 80's when the Sooners had a couple of 7-4 seasons, there were more than a few people that thought he should be fired.

    Your Falcons were the toast of football just a few years ago.

    Do you have kids?

    I feel pretty safe in saying that 3 schools in less than 18 months is not good. It's not like he got transferred. He had choices.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    As M2 hinted, while I'm not quite taking my shoes off to count them, I do have eight kids and a grandson, so if that gives me any brownie points for validating my opinion, so be it.

    Regardless of whether Petrino's kids are in public, private, or homeschooled, it is a very broad, sweeping generalization to lay pity on his kids for moving. For all you know, his kids could wear out their welcome in a place as fast as he apparently does, so maybe its good that they move around so everyone doesn't find out they're brats. But, my point is, who are you to imply that he is a bad parent based solely on changing coaching jobs frequently?

    I think that's what really rubbed everyone the wrong way.

    Walking away in the middle of a season (w/ only 3 games left) is quitting. Period.

    Following that up by simply leaving a letter in the locker room is absolute chicken stuff.

    Petrino, Arksansas and the SEC definitely have the makings of a fantastically spectacular situation. It's either going to succeed or fail miserably. It will not be for the faint of heart.

    He shouldn't have any problems there since the SEC is so overrated.
