Re: Bobby Petrino on paid leave following crash details

How much does a BCS HC recruit anyway? Isn't he basically like the closer in this situation?

still very bad for recruiting when the head coach isn't allowed to recruit for a whole year, makes it easy for rivals to negative recruit

Such an obvious and easy move. Limiting recruiting is absurd.

All fair points. Don't really think about negative recruiting (simply because I never do it in the NCAA games), but yea it exists and would be easy to exploit here.

Suck on that Rovell, but I'm fine with him going ahead with his suit because I'm always for lawyers making money.

Yeah, the whole point of keeping him around is because he's too good a coach to fire over this. You take away a little money with a suspension, but you don't harm the program with your sanctions, the whole reason to keep him around is to keep a good football team.

Well, on the bright side, for once Bobby Petrino didn't actually run away from this job.

Re: Bobby Petrino on paid leave following crash details

NFL coaches can keep mistresses much more easily without it threatening their job security. Maybe Petrino can get a job there. I can't think of anything he's done in the past that would make teams not want to hire him.

Illinois should fire their recently hired HC, hire Petrino.

They had to have found out something else if they were really going to suspend him from recruiting

Re: Bobby Petrino on paid leave following crash details

Key findings:

Knowingly misled university about circumstances of the accident.
Relationship gave unfair and undisclosed advantage for the position on football staff (one of 159 applicants), didn't say he had a relationship which is a conflict of interest
Gave Dorrell $20,000 in cash prior to hiring her

$20k hush money and a "job" in the department?

Good luck at the next place you'll run away from...

Re: Bobby Petrino on paid leave following crash details

UA should be less concerned about getting a football coach than about hiring a team of lawyers to defend the lawsuits this fiasco will bring. And Petrino's will be the simplest to defend.

Re: Bobby Petrino on paid leave following crash details

Jeff Long coming out strong about this being a straight firing, so I'm not sure if the reports about their being conditions that Petrino didn't want to adhere to is true. Someone just asked if something along the lines of if Petrino had any opportunities to do anything to keep his job to which Long responded, "No, he wasn't given a chance."

20k payout is the real winner of this press conference.


Edit: Guy who tweeted the hardball **** just directly asked him again and was told Petrino had no opportunity to stay.

Re: Bobby Petrino on paid leave following crash details

Arkansas 100% did not want to fire him and neither did the fans, they just were put into a position where they had no other choice. Somewhat akin to the Tressel situation. Entirely different scandal, same result, reluctant firing of a popular (amongst the fans) and successful coach.

If this story ends up being true he's gotta be the most arrogant ahole on the planet, I mean his track record indicates this as a strong possibilty, but this just pushes it over the top.

"Yeah I'm a married father of 4, yeah I was banging an engaged 25 year old who I just gave a job, ya I lied to everyone about it... what you gonna do about it? Sanction me? I'm Bobby F'ing Petrino!"

There's no way the sanction story can be true... I mean, he can't be that dumb and neither can Arkansas, the point of keeping him is to try to win, why keep him and then cripple his recruiting, doesn't jive.

That was the death blow. There were rumors following the wreck that Petrino had given her money to entice her to take the new job. Guess it was true.

Well put.

Anyone have any thoughts on if Wilson will stay or go for the supplemental draft? Likelihood of Paul Petrino continuing to coach?

In addition, possibilities are: Dorrell, her fiance', and who knows what may come of the current coaching staff.
