    I wonder if Long was the one behind the Petrino hire. If so, given that he hired a guy with character problems who put the school in a position to be sued, it might explain why long was so emotional in the press conference. He's kind of the one holding the bag now and might be next.

    I kind of feel sorry for the good Arky fans/posters in all of this as well as the players. BP just now realizes he has hurt so many, give me a break, he just didn't care until he got caught. Hire your concubine when another 159 applied, give her $20 grand (probably to set up an out of the way apartment), lie to your bosses along with his track record of Louisville and Atlanta. That's not someone who cares about others. On the other side, Arky should still win at least 8 games if not more with what they have, even with a interim staff. I can't see a new coach coming in now and changing the system most players have been under for at least 3 years especially with the talent that is already there.
    Please stand behind our troops or feel free to stand in front of them.

    Awkward if he isn't settled with and sent packing.
    Brother might hang around during the interim, but no way he can remain after they hire their future coach. If he plays it right, he might get a nice package to move on.

    Thinking about their future, I am wondering about Tubby. Ears is not going to contend for national championships at Texas Tech and I believe he is from Arkansas. Depending on the contractural oblications with Tech, it would not surprise me to see him take a serious look. Arkansas could do worse.

    Relax. There's enough Bowdens out there to get through a year. Some of them even have SEC experience.

    Good job Piggies on doing the right thing.

    Might be the perfect time for them to make the switch to hiring a defensive coach because surely they know they are never going to beat CNS and contend for the west without a much better defense.

    I see it like this: Long had a clear-cut opportunity to cut the cord with Petrino due to a clear violation of his contract, thus no buyout or settlement required.

    IF he had retained Petrino (with some lesser disciplinary measures), the fear would be that recruiting would suffer somewhat, his focus would be diminished due to family and personal life issues, and his relationships with players, assistant coaches, and the community at large would become more awkward, leading to a dropoff in the on-field result. At that point (because you didn't fire the guy when you had an easy out on his contract), getting rid of him would cost millions.
    Defense STILL wins championships. RTR!!!

    If we take up enough money here can we put it all together and buy Les Miles a motorcycle and a lady friend?

    Petrino might want to get a new job soon. He might just need the money to hire a divorce lawyer. Or is Tammy Wynnett playing in his wife’s head right now?

    I'm sure he's got the money to handle a divorce lawyer.

    He should look at his net worth and divide by two.
