Welcome to this week’s edition of ‘Case of the Mondays” where we look at the good, bad and sublime from the world of college football and beyond.
And with this week’s edition, we also bring a disclaimer: There will be no talk of Bobby Petrino, motorcycles, paid administrative or sexting. Instead, we’ll begin by asking…
1. What’s next at Arkansas?: As promised, we won’t be discussing the unnamed coach who just got fired, but we will however chat about his replacement. Taver Johnson has taken over the program for the intermediary, but what about the long term?
Truth be told, I’m thinking Arkansas’ best bet is to take the Ohio State and North Carolina approach, plug-in Johnson as the interim coach for 2012, and then continue the search for a full-time replacement in the winter of 2012. That is assuming of course, that Johnson doesn’t do a bang-up job and earn the spot outright.
A couple things here: First, I know that’s a tough pill to swallow for Arkansas fans. The Hogs enter 2

Alison Melder is a young, attractive lady who wears a bikini well, but she never won the Miss Bikini USA competition as she claimed. Melder became known last week when an investigation into Bobby Petrino’s phone records showed she exchanged several text messages with the fired Arkansas coach.
On a past modeling profile, Melder wrote “miss bikini usa 08″ and “miss motorcycle...
Alison Melder — the 26-year-old former bikini model who reportedly exchanged 200 text messages with Arkansas head football coach Bobby Petrino last year — denied having an affair with the former coach.
Her attorney, Jeffrey Hagood of Hagood, Tarpy & Cox in Knoxville, set the record straight in an email to Deadspin. The sports website broke the story about the texting that...
The University of Arkansas says the former mistress of fired football coach Bobby Petrino has resigned her position with the program.
The school announced in a news release Tuesday evening that Jessica Dorrell had stepped down as the football team's student-athlete development coordinator. Athletic Director Jeff Long said the decision was mutual and that there are no immediate...
A week after Bobby Petrino's firing, Arkansas football is in a state of flux as athletic director Jeff Long searches for a new head coach.
The Razorbacks wrap up spring practice with their Red-White scrimmage Saturday. In the meantime, assistant coaches are doing their best to hold the program together, and they're doing so while awaiting their own fate.
We’ve had the weekend to let all of the goings on of last week kind of sink in a little…and given everyone enough time to rifle through all the phone records to find any more interesting nuggets. There’s been no hiring of a new coach (or even naming an interim for that matter) and there’s been no revelations that Petrino was running a backwoods meth lab staffed by illegal...
Here’s video of former University of Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino’s girl whom he had a textual relationship with. Alison Melder can be seen in this video shaking her moneymaker. Not too shabby for a former Arkansas Republican Party member.
Melder had claimed to have won the 2008 Miss Bikini USA, but as it turns out she was lying. Never-the-less she’s got some pretty bomb-ass...
As athletic director Jeff Long walked out of the room after telling Arkansas' players that Bobby Petrino had been fired Thursday evening, a void in leadership had already formed.
Without Petrino's heavy hand and detailed plans to guide the way, a few players stood up to leave the Broyles Athletic Center - thinking the meeting was finished. There was no yelling, only the...
Not long after Bobby Petrino was fired, the University of Arkansas placed Jessica Dorrell on paid administrative leave. After phone records showed a clear relationship of some sort and details of a $20,000 cash payment came out, the University had little choice in firing Petrino. A report emerges tonight indicating that the University has announced [...]
When Arkansas fired Bobby Petrino what they lost is clear. He was perhaps the nation's best playcaller and most creative offensive mind.
Tracy Sprinkle commits to the Buckeyes. He tweets:

With the messy ending to the Bobby Petrino era leaving them in a bind, the Arkansas Razorbacks are trying to determine whether to go the interim route or poaching a coach from another school.
Athletic Director Jeff Long is trying to put together a list and identify his candidates. A source told coachingsearch.com's Pete Roussel that former San Francisco 49ers and Detroit...
