I am not even suprised that Bobby is fired, Bobby has always been a classless jerk, good for Arkansas for firing Bobby! Meanwhile, Atlanta Falcon fans are laughing their butts off.....

How can you be shocked? If he did not lie in the first place, he would have not been fired

Per Clay Henry, AR wanted to keep him, and was going to give him penalties, Petrino refused and therefore terminated

I do not think Bobby is going to get another head coaching job

Good luck getting a job anywhere Bobby.
AD Jeff Long did what was right and gained a lot of respect from this Razorback fan

Classless jerk, no one would doubt that or argue; wa all know it, but it is still a shock to those of us close to the program. A coach doesn't have to be nice to keep his job. The $20,000 obviously was the final blow. Long said the affair was not the cause.

You obviously had not heard the press conference when you just posted. Even the lieing wasn't the final curtain though Long didn't say that in so many words. It was what led up to all this. If you lived here, in Ar you would understnad. Almost everyone is stunned, even those who thought he deserved to be let go. As I have said, not liking him has nothing to do with all this. Most of us don't like him either, we are just surprised.

Not according to the press conference which I guess you didn't watch. Regardless none of us will ever know what went on behind close doors.

I tried to tell you... Lying just won't work in SEC country if u are a leader. It boils down to the biggest boosters not willing to stand behind Petrino any further.

I'm not a Razorback fan... But I'm cheering for them today. Kudos. Hope they win the Natty now!!!

Student Athletes should be proud to play there now
