Two things will doom Petrino in my view, moreso than the fact that he has admitted to being unfaithful to his wife. 1) that he tried to cover up the fact that the girl was with him in the accident and 2) that he just hired her on staff. She is (was now?) engaged to be married to an alumni this summer. Another wrecked life.

I am a Georgia native, didn't have any allegiance to the university until my daughter enrolled as a freshman this year. I hope for her sake that the university does the right thing and dismiss this man promptly. I want her to see her university stand for morality and character before winning football at any cost.

I must admit, tho, as a lifelong Atlanta Falcon fan, I still haven't buried my hatchet. If the AD can't find one, he can borrow mine.

The crime during Switzer's tenure is as big as OU's tradition?

No. Just a typical Poke fan eatin' sour grapes. It's okay, we're both Okies (I think) so I'll forgive you for the gross exaggeration.

Sadly lacking these days, no? VERY sadly lacking.

I'd also like to see U of A stand for intelligence in not only the student body, but the employees. Clearly, BP took leave of whatever good sense he had a couple of days ago. That boy - he just ain't very bright...

At least he did it with a female and not a under age male.

My feelings exactly. I do with he hadn't lied, but his personal life and life on the field are 2 different things. The next few days will tell us what the future holds for him.

A lack of loyalty usually trickles down to every aspect of your life. I'm not surprised because us in Louisville know what caliber of man Petrino is firsthand.
As I have mentioned on the ARboard, he is a pri#K but he is still a darn good coach and football bring money to the school.

I know how strongly you feel about this and how much you dislike him, but he has never admitted to being unfaithful. We are all wondering what he did do, but none of us know. He admitted to a past unappropriate something or another, not adultary.
