PLAYERS: Bobby Petrino
The FOTP crime scene investigation unit has a long standing reputation for getting to the bottom of some of the SEC’s more infamous scandals, so it was only natural that I make the trip over to Fayetteville to get to the bottom of what really happened in the Bobby Petrino motorcycle crash. The police report of the incident is fairly cut and dry, as you can see.  Petrino was heading west in the westbound lane of Highway 16 when he lost control of his bike and skidded into a pile of limbs and dirt along the side of the road.  The report describes the crash site as being just east of Crosses, Ark* (about 25 miles East of Fayetteville).  The road is described as two lanes with “improved shoulders”.  The stretch of road in question is identified as straight with a noticeable decline.  So, a fairly routine description of the scene all around.   My visit to the site fills in some of the details that the police report didn’t entirely cover. The crash site You can see the skid mark and subs...

Petrino Out At Arkansas; Who's Next?

Word spread Tuesday evening that Bobby Petrino was fired as the University of Arkansas football coach.  A press conference later that night confirmed it.  ESPN's Joe Schad was the one breaking most of the scoop on this (for once), and some of the things he tweeted Tuesday made it clear why Arkansas simply HAD to fire Petrino...even if they badly wanted to keep him.   ...

Petrino Out, The Day After

Long hired Bobby Petrino, was willing to stick up for his coach and was let down. Long had...

Arkansas makes right call with Petrino

Arkansas jokes have always been a given. We have all heard the ones about hillbillies, Walmarts and even favorite son Bill Clinton. But with Arkansas' firing of Bobby Petrino on Tuesday night -- after he initially lied about 25-year-old subordinate Jessica Dorrell being with him when he crashed his motorcycle earlier this month, and after the revelation he was involved in an...

Arkansas Football: If You Weren’t Winning, They’d Have Fired Your Pig Sooie Butt Already

Bobby Petrino is certainly getting the martyr treatment these days. It seems some Hawg fans are simply fit to be tied over the current state of his career as the University of Arkansas’ football coach and feel the need to “rally” around their Harley Davidson riding, publicly embarrassed, miscreant of a head coach in support of his retention—I personally have no doubt that...

My “to Petrino” post, circa 2007

Seen this movie before Everyone’s going to speak ad nauseam on this Petrino firing. I’m going to choose to abstain. I’m also rarely the guy who plays the “I predicted this!” game. I’m not going to here either, as pretty much every sports fan got a feel for what Bobby Boy was about several years. Just this once, though, I’ll simply let the words from the past do their...

Petrino's ego his ultimate downfall

My colleague Jason Whitlock would say ***** Galore nabbed another victim Tuesday when Bobby Petrino was fired as Arkansas' head football coach after trying to cover up a relationship with a 25-year-old employee. I'd add onto the list, right there along with Ms. Galore, another key factor that often lingers in the background of big-time athletics and the big-time men who...

Ozzie Guillen and Bobby Petrino show us the coaches in charge aren’t the sharpest

Sometimes it’s great to live in a country where Presidents forget the definition of is, Jimmer becomes a popular baby name, and the closest our children come to learning mathematics begins and ends with Octomom. But, sometimes the best part about tithing (and then some) to Uncle Sam with the prospect of getting peanut shells in return is the ability to somehow link an Arkansas...

Judging Bobby Petrino by G.W.Gras

People are great at sitting back and judging situations.  Especially situations of fidelity, morality and faith.  We judged Sammy Sosa and Mark McGuire for the use of steroids, after we marveled at how they brought baseball back into a spotlight it had dwindled away from at the time.  Major League Baseball, profited from every angle thanks to Mark McGuire and Sammy Sosa, two players...
