    I believe after this season it won't be too bad. I am wondering if the majority of the fan-base wishes he was had not been fired, with some believing the administration caved into media pressure. Before the internet and 24 hour sports channels, this probably would have been covered.

    No way Kentucky pays him what he wants.

    He's really not in very strong bargaining position at the moment. They'll work something out unless he can't handle the "no 20-something young lovelies on the football staff" clause Kentucky will insist on.

    Re: Bobby Petrino interested in Kentucky

    An interesting quote from the article:

    Quote Originally Posted by J4Bama View Post

    Another possible take on this is that this is adding pressure on Auburn to meet certain demands (Such as the firing of Jay Jacobs, etc..). Notice that "He wants to stay in the SEC". Sounds like possible leverage to other interested SEC programs to act.

    Definitely Kentucky. Petrino needs to stay as far away from auburn as possible. He would be a good fit at UK and could turn them around. Not BCS bowl game turnaround, but bowl eligible at least.

    I have heard from more thana few people, including David Pollack from ESPN, that Pertrino is headed back to Hogville. The admin will view it is a "one year suspension without pay". He will return with a new contract, no doubt with several "morality clauses". He's a great hire for Arky and those are his kids. I think they work it out.

    So far the official word from Kentucky is that they are NOT interested in hiring Petrino.
