Bobby Petrino Will not Be Fired Folks…


I’m sure you all have heard about Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino’s motorcycle accident and alleged humping around with football “assistant” Jessica Dorrell.

A lot of people – sports media members and fans – are calling for Petrino’s job.  Meanwhile, this story has legs and is starting to get seedier and more scandalous by the minute.

First, let me pose the following questions.  Is Petrino a scumbag? 

You bet your ass he is. 

Is he getting the deserved karma from what he did to the Atlanta Falcons a few years back?  You bet your SWEET ass he is.

And while I take no pleasure of being a “Debbie Downer”, I would like to introduce you all to a friend named “reality”.  And that reality is this: Petrino will not be fired because he has won a lot of games for Arkansas and has them relevant in college football again.

Petrino’s record at Arkansas is 21-5 over the last two seasons and was a loss away from playing in the SEC championship game.  Arkansas can now recruit NATIONWIDE thanks to Petrino’s success.  Boosters have pumped millions of dollars into the football program, also the result of Petrino’s success.

Let’s put it this way – if the athletic director and chancellor fire Petrino, the boosters will make sure that the university will have a new AD and chancellor. 

The lesson to be learned is two-fold.  First no matter how seedy and slimy the coach, if the dude wins he is not going ANYWHERE.  Second, sex (and Father Time) is, and will always be, undefeated and untied.

Period, end of discussion.

    He will be fired early next week due to the huge sexual harassment liability.

      I hope you are right. I’m just skeptical because it’s the SEC. When does the SEC ever do the right thing?

    Both Patrino and Dorrell will be fired because one cannot remain while the other one is fired. And SHE most definitely will be terminated! So he too will be termed.

    I think you are right, but I also think the possibility he gets fired is greater than you think. Don’t forget, Houston Nutt got run out of Fayetteville largely for his affair with a local news anchorwoman…

    1. klownboy says:

      All true. But Nutt also didn’t turn Arkansas into a BCS squad either.

      1. J-Dub says:

        True, but Nutt wasn’t putting his mistress on the payroll either. That’s what got him canned.

    Well damn, I guess I had this one wrong eh? Way to go SEC school – you have proved me wrong…
