    Re: Bobby Petrino

    I'll admit it. I laughed when I read this:

    When your cable goes out, you can’t study game film.

    When you can’t study game film, you lose to Alabama.

    When you lose to Alabama, you get depressed.

    When you get depressed, you go out and buy a Harley.

    When you buy a Harley, you meet hot young ex-volleyball players.

    When you meet hot young ex-volleyball players, you go on joyrides.

    When you go on joyrides, you end up in a roadside ditch.

    Don’t end up in a roadside ditch.

    BTW, alot of people I talk to who have interacted with Petrino do not paint him as a person drunk on power and craving adolation. I've also heard that Petrino wasn't showing off with his mistress on a harley but rather they had been caught by her fiance and the ride was a "the jig is up, the news is out, they've finally found me, The renegade who had it made retrieved for a bounty" thing. In other words, his AD was likely going to learn about the reasons Petrino was fired (the innappropriate hiring) regardless of whether the motorcycle crash occurred or not.
    While it may be true that he was about to be found out. The power to simply hire someone, pay $20K above the last person without anyone even raising an eyebrow shows a pretty serious amount of power.

    I'm not sure how he was expecting to out run the accusations on his Harley, but that to me shows a judgement emboldened by power.

    It seems more like the behavior of someone with lots to hide rather than someone emboldened by power.

    That's true. Just breathtaking in retrospect how one thinks he's going to get away with it.

    I can't imagine how anyone with a spouse and four children could do something like Petrino did if they actually paused and thought it through first.

    All the blood which should have been in his brain allowing him to think it through was apparently in another part of his body.

    It wasnt the first time something like this has happened, and it wont be the last. As the above poster said, he wasnt thinking with the right part of his anatomy.
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    Yeah, I was going to say it depends on which head does the thinking.

    Re: Bobby Petrino

    I have a friend who works in Fayettville, and he said that, at the beginning of this mess, at least 90% of Razorback fans wanted Petrino back. Once Long's news conference came out, that number dropped to less than one in four. (The $20,000 didn't help.)

    Interesting, that.

    Also interesting that Petrino won't sue to keep some of that massive payout. He's leaving it compeltely alone.

    I've read on another message board that when Petrino crashed the motorcycle, it was on a straight stretch for about three miles. While keeping this board family-friendly, one can use their imagination to figure out how a man could crash a motorcycle on a straight stretch.

    There was an interesting article I read yesterday comparing Bobby Petrino to Rick Pitino.

    Two major differences between the two:

    1. Pitino when he was confronted with it fessed up to everything. Petrino lied to his boss.

    2. Pitino paid Karen Sypher from his own personal funds while Petrino did it through a state paid job.

    Best scene from the movie "Parenthood" the police officer asks them what happened and Steve Martin says to his wife "why don't you show him honey?"
