    Re: Is Bobby Petrino washed up with the big jobs?

    Right now, Bobby Petrino is as dangerous as a ring of electrorefined Plutonium-239 in the hands of Al Qaeda.

    It may take a while for the toxicity of what he did at Arkansas to fade, and it may not ever.

    At this point, the best thing he can do is go on any ESPN, CBSSports or NBCSports show that will have him and talk about how sorry his is and how his life has changed.

    It wasn't the affair he was having. It was the breach of protocol (and likely federal/state law) he committed in hiring his mistress, then lying to his bosses about everything until he had no choice but to fess up.

    No employer wants to touch someone like that, barely nine months after it all went down. It will take a desperate program in dire straits to go there. I will be shocked if anyone puts him on the sideline for the 2013 season.

    That's why I laughed my butt off at all of the boogs who thought they would get him. Even Jay Jacobs isn't that stupid or desperate.

    I highly disagree.

    I think BP probably has enough money stuffed away to last him a lot of years. He should maybe think about buying a car dealership somewhere and moving on with his life after football. I think he'd be great among a bunch of used car salesmen.

    If he works for ESPN for 1 year, they would go from criticizing to praising the school that hires him.

    a. look at his track record of disaster
    b. good move, he made mistakes but is a proven winner.

    ESPN makes reality for the masses

    Maybe he should try to get an OC job in the NFL, he wouldn't have to talk to the press very much or be the face of the franchise.
    Let this scandal blow over for a few years.

    Re: Is Bobby Petrino washed up with the big jobs?

    I'm going counter to the trend. I think he'll get a job this year. If not write it down that he will be a head coach at the FBS level in 2014. If Gus had turned them down, I think he would have gotten the Auburn job.

    Kelvin Sampson got the Indiana job when everyone knew he was a serial cheater.
    John Claipari's record has more erasure marks than a first grader's vocabulary homework, yet he can set his own salary.
    Rick Pitino knocked up the girlfriend and later wife of a Louisville staffer and still has a job.
    Just last year, Gary Pinkel survived actually being arrested and convicted of DUI.

    Pitino wins games - lots of them and he'll be willing to take a deal for less than someone at his level would normally demand. Someone will hire him and it will be sooner rather than later.

    Butch Davis has messed over Miami worse than Petrino did Arkansas and UNC was eager to hire him. He then messed over UNC and is now being considered for the FIU job.

    A big school will take a chance on Petrino. Winning can make folks overlook a lot of baggage.

    In his most recent press conference, he was seen wearing a neck brace, with a face full of road rash, and he lied his butt off. Only a few months have passed. It would be pretty tough for any SEC school to introduce him to the public with a straight face.

    Why is that? Tress is blackballed! He's untouchable for like five years by the NCAA. Every school is scared to touch him. Petrino doesn't have THAT problem.

    He can still land a big time job, but he needs to explore jobs outside of the southeast and specifically the bible-belt.

    The Pac-12 would probably the best place for him to resume his career.

    I'm no big Butch supporter but how did he screw up Miami? Even what he left made Larry Coker LOOK GOOD so how did he screw them over? He left them loaded. Now I'll agree he left UNC in a mess but CERTAINLY not Miami.

    Re: Is Bobby Petrino washed up with the big jobs?

    In today's college football winning has a way of making people forgive & forget really fast..It's obvious no SEC will touch him this year..But..I have no doubts some major school will give him another go at it..Right or wrong..Winning is a cure all in this day & age of college football..
