Bobby Petrino Is A Liar And Other Sports News This Week

Last week, Bobby Petrino (offensive coordinator for the University of Arkansas Razorbacks) crashed his motorcycle into a ditch, breaking four ribs and cracking a vertebrae. Petrino told Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long that he was alone on said motorcycle during the crash; this was the story went to the media. But after the accident went public, Petrino revealed he was actually with former Arkansas volleyball player, Jessica Dorrell. Dorrell is not Petrino’s wife. After that admission, Petrino then admitted to having an “inappropriate relationship” with Jessica Dorrell. He has four kids and two grandchildren with his wife. Scandalous!

The New York Times reports that this isn’t the first time Bobby Petrino has been a huge prick. In 2007, Petrino left the 3-10 Atlanta Falcons with no warning whatsoever. The only confirmation the players received was a four-sentence letter posted in their lockers. NFL safety Lawyer Millroy said this about Petrino: “Just because he knows X’s and O’s doesn’t mean he’s a nice person.” Yes, Lawyer, if there’s one thing we all know from sports gossip it’s that being good at sports isn’t equivalent to being a decent human being.

This week, Petrino was placed on paid leave by the University of Arkansas for the cover-up. To say the least, the past ten months have been tumultuous for NCAA football programs. After everything that happened at Penn State, athletic directors are on their toes and ready to report absolutely anything to the police. If you are an NCAA coach having an affair with a 25 year-old co-worker, then you should probably just come clean. Don’t try to lie. Nobody is going to look the other way. In a post- Penn State world, there is no tolerance for cover-ups.

Students at Arkansas have already held a rally in his honor. On to your other sports news this week:
