I have no words. Talk about a liability.

Having an affair is one thing but he used school funding to encourage it. Anyone remember how he left the Falcons?

Petrino's history may not have been perfect, but both the Falcon players and management showed disrespect to him right out the box! Players dissed him, and management never backed him up!

Petrino wins. That is all there is to it. Petrino took Louisville to unprecedented heights, and they could not gamble with the move to the ACC.

Now that they are in the ACC, Petrino should have a better group of coeds to pick from. Maybe go after other schools' coeds. Still a bad hire and let's see him win without Bridgewater.

Petrino took over in 2003. The 2002 team was lead by Dave Ragone and scored a home win over #4 Florida State. What did Petrino do his first year? He took Stephen LeFors as his QB and the Cards won 9 games his first year. His second year, the Cards went 8-0 against Conference USA, 11-1 overall, beat a top 10 Boise State in the Liberty Bowl, finishing #6 in the AP and #7 in the coaches poll. Yeah..........but let's see if he can win without Teddy Bridgewater.

It reminds me of an abused spouse going back to her husband.

I'm not a Bobby Petrino or Louisville fan but the fact of the matter is that he was hired because he's a brilliant football coach. When you're operating a bottom-line business like top level collegiate football, talent is going to trump just about everything. He's obviously not a person with a great deal of integrity, but like him or not Petrino gets results.

Other than the Falcons job, Petrino has won everywhere that he's coached. There's no reason to think that he won't be able to win in Louisville (even without Bridgewater). Louisville's AD and President know this...that's why they are willing to bring back a coach who they probably would have wanted to fight 7 yrs. ago.

Either way, since college football is as much a business as the NFL is, money is going to rule over everything. It only makes sense to hire a coach that is going to get the fans and boosters to spend money. In that respect I feel Petrino is a good hire because he will win...and winning equals $$$!
