re: Teary Eyed Petrino Repents at LRTDC
I'm sure there's people pushing it behind the scenes. I think the only way you take Petrino back is if he's willing to work for scraps. And only then with assurances made and understood upfront that he is never in consideration for the head coaching gig ever again at Arkansas.

If he wants to rehab his image here, you may give him a chance to do that for a couple of years and then hit bricks.

Other than those specific roles it should be a hard pass IMO. And even then Morris should have veto power. Like, only if Morris is down with it. He is a damn good OC.

ETA: Actually, now that I think of it, hasn't it been right around 7 years now that all that happened? Is this mofo coming up here apologizing now because statutes of limitations has expired?

I'm sorry but I had to peek over on fagville to see their response. Its hilarious the hypocrisy over there. For years banning poster after poster for saying anything positive about Bobby. But now after several years of wandering through the desert the fricking turds over there finally get it.

Those guys are a part of the fan base that has been getting everything that they have deserved since Mr Integrity Judy made his pious bs speech. I love it. Karma is a bitch. The state of Arkansas will sell out of knee pads just for the fagville crowd if Bobby is re-hired. fricking hypocrites every one of them.

I’d love to know how he was coded for rehire eligibility when he was terminated. I imagine in this day and age that it’d be pretty hard to flip that high of a profile termination back over to rehire eligible without someone having an issue with it.

I already give enough for this to be accomplished, as does most who purchase season tix, donate, go to the games. we are becoming the minority... that will make the difference in time if things don't turn around.

Petrino's bad season was due to his lack of recruiting. Not his coaching prowess. I'd hire him back in a heartbeat. Just surround him with some top notch recruiters and a decent DC. Fact I'd keep the current defensive staff


Why does that make a difference? Recruiting is a huge part of the job, and it's not easy to recruit to the top 20 or better at Arkansas. He has to be able to do it, or the years missing bowls will become numerous. And the solution of "surrounding him with good recruiters" is a laughably simple solution. Like, recruiting is almost all of the problems with remaining competitive that Arkansas has. It's been a problem we've all been wondering how to fix for years. It's a nice idea in theory, there's just no way that could ever work. Bobby won't come here as the disgraced and handcuffed offensive coordinator, either

I've finally gotten to where I refuse to go to that site and give them the traffic. Reddit and tRant are superior as Hog fansites. I'm really tired of the large concentration of baby boomers who don't know how to gracefully interact on the Internet ruining rje vibe. I'm tired of the hypocritical mod staff having to remain diplomatic and force a positive viewpoint until Lanny finally decides he's fed up. Just like how "Bert," of all fricking playful and harmless things, was censored and auto-correxted to Bret for years on HV. Up until the last season. Lanny was ready for a new coach by the end of 2017, so you were allowed that little freedom. I'm tired of these old fricks calling people bizarre insults like "mental midget" any time they want to berate you for being "not a real fan" or not falling in their view of masochistic patriotism toward the program.

Yea, I noticed that too. But I thought he handled the interview really well overall.

What a moronic and and completely ridiculous comment. Your amazingly hypocritical "beady eyed" comment aside, your video game hypothetical isnt even close to the realm of plausibility.

And frick anyone who would take Petrino back as their head coach. Even if CCM cant hack it as HC, he will always get another chance somewhere else because he treats people with respect and builds relationships. Hence why the recruiting is improving and why if he only gets 3 years those 3 CCM years have way more EV than Petrinos tenure.


This whole revisionist Petrino fantasy bs is beyond stale. 2-10 in year 5 in the ACC. The whole schtick of "He might be a sob, but he can coach his arse off" is just fuel for the delusion and escapism necessary for some to be Hog fans right now. Tough times no doubt.

Pull a Saban here, hire the guy that needs to "rehab his image" outside of the limelight for a little while as an offensive analyist.

Give him a little while to do just that, then make him the OC. The offense needs help, and if Chad can set his pride aside - and so can the program - we would benefit greatly.

Can you imagine a Chad/Petrino offense with a Chavis defense?

Holy shite that would be epic.

If Petrino were coaching this past weekend we beat OM, and our freshmen WRs are a hot topic in the SEC.

Petrino was handed a fairly loaded Louisville team and he did produce a Heisman trophy winner... though people overlook the fact that the year they won the Heisman Louisville also gave up something like 65 sacks.

Then that Louisville talent left (the sacks stayed though). And for the first time in his career Petrino was there when it happened. Every other time he'd left before the bottom fell out and some other poor SOB was left holding the bag.

His "genius" got him fired with 2 games left in the season only 2 years after he had a Heisman trophy winner. That is how quickly it fell apart for him.

The idea that you can just surround him with great recruiters and he will be fine is cringe worthy. If you were a great recruiter would you want to work for Petrino? Do you think Chavis would willingly put up with Petrino? If him having great recruiters is the only missing piece of the puzzle then why didn't the sumbitch go out and get some in all the years he's been HC?

A lot of you aren't sold on the Chadster. Hell, I'm not sold on him either. But going back to Petrino is like going back to an abusive boyfriend. "He's changed! He said he was sorry and he really meant it this time!" Bull shite. People like Petrino don't change. He screwed us once and he would do it again in a heartbeat.
