I really don't get people saying this. He left Louisville for the NFL... Big deal, most people would if for nothing other than the money. Our last two coaches also left other programs to come here. One swore up and down he wasn't coming and did. Now, when he left the Falcons, did he quit, sure he did and did he do it in a slightly unconventional way, YES! But bottom line, he hated the NFL, knew he wanted to be in the college game and had an opportunity. If he were still at Arkansas today, most Auburn fans would be all on the Petrino bandwagon and would be throwing the checkbook at him, not even talking about the Atlanta mess, so we need to look past this IMO.
Now, the part about Jessica Dorrell in Arkansas, is this a problem, yes it is, but is it something I think we should look over, I think so. He got caught doing what a lot of coaches do. His fame got in his way a little bit. Was it legally wrong? YES... Was it morally wrong? YES... Has he paid his dues, thats not for me or anyone else to decide? I do feel like wherever he goes he will feel in debted to them for taking a chance on him. I feel like he will coach is ass off and give it everything within him to be successful. I want him on my team. A motivated Bobby Petrino is the best coach out there from an x's and o's standpoint, he runs a tight ship and will get a grip on all the BS that is going on. He will make Sammy Coates, Ricardo Louis and CJ Uzomah all-americans. He is the best man for the job, and he will make Auburn better immediately. Stoops is not the answer, Gus is not the answer, both would win some they shouldn't and lose some they shouldn't. Petrino will build a consistant program, year on year. Don't throw the Saban record up either, we got the one man who owns Saban fired about 5 years ago, so what does beating Saban get you? A job at Texas Tech!!! Hire Petrino today, then hire Ellis Johnson as his DC!!! War Eagle..
Agreed. Spot on, my friend...
