He did hire her and they had a relationship before hiring.
I Ain't got no Worries - Lebron James
God I can't imagine, I would pack all my shit up move to Auburn and swear to Chizik he will never lose a game to Petrino again if he hired me...
The 55k of taxpayer money is more than enough to can his sorry ass.
think you are exactly right , good coach but horrible person
I think tennessee is more realistic. auburn would have to stink it up really bad this year AND get blown out by BAMA again for them to fire the chiz. If that happened damn right auburn would want him.
Yeah right, after all that shit in 2003 and now this? No freaking way Auburn Alumni and boosters would allow that shit.
UT would love to have him ....i mean love it , although the rumor is that they are holding out for K Smart ; makes sense , Hart the new AD is from Alabama and Sal , new def coord, is from Alabama as well as our new DB coach ...
Why do people act as if Petrino was the best thing that has happened to Ark.?
They were very formiddable with Nutt. I know they played in 2 SEC championship gms, against UGA and UF, and I think tied for another Western division crown. Thats 3 western division crowns in his 9-10 yrs, which is pretty good, imo.
Nutt also was caught cheating, or rumored to be cheating, iirc. Thats the funny thing to me. I cant fully remember, but it was something about his mistress talking ish to Mitch Mustain thru text msgs, for playing bad. Or something like that.
The point is that Petrino is very replacebale. Before Nutt, they were extremely lousy, and he was forced out, "resigned." So I think Petrino will be resigning pretty soon.
pigs were probably a top 5 team this year...and were very good the year before...
You keep your greedy damn hands off Smart. Just kidding because the only way Smart sticks around with us is if Saban leaves and I would root for him to have a HC position. He can't be more than a season or two away from it one way or another.
Im not saying they weren't good, Im saying Petrino isnt taking them places that they haven't already been.
They had never been to a BCS bowl prior to Petrino.
Yeah, you're right on that one.
Success wise though, Nutt had them competing.
3 SEC west championships (maybe 1 was a tie), in his tenure was good.
Im pretty sure everyone agrees that Nutt isnt as good as Petrino, however, his on the field results were respectable.
He had a serious favor in that one. LSU wasn't what they were now and Bama was on probation. Nutt would have done with Arky what he did with Ole Miss if LSU and Bama were top notch programs like they are now. Nutt took advantage of a shitty SEC West. That day has passed and will never come again.
LSU was good in 06' when they won it that yr. I think LSU even beat them that yr.
He didnt suck against Miles.
And if he wouldve sucked due to Bama and LSU being strong, why doesnt that apply to Petrino?
Arky can find another coach. They need a defensive minded coach anyways.
I actually think Petrino has been good against Miles.
He may be, I dont know for a fact, but Nutt gave him fits also.
Arkansas was bad, real bad, when Nutt got there. They won 9-10 gms like Nutt's first yr. They had a good run of bowl gms, 5-6 straight, and 3 were likely Jan 1st bowls.
Nutt left Petrino in a bad position as well, talent wise. Petrino definitely got that thing back rolling good.
I think, due to the current success, they actually would have a shot at a decent coach.
Apart from the 55k is another problem. If they keep him then they are open to big lawsuit by the mistress and an endless amount of future lawsuits anytime they fire someone for a work/relationship situation.
They will chase the female out of the state. Just wait. She will be ex-communicated from the Hog Pit because of what SHE did that THEIR coach.....
I completely forgot about all that.
would have to settle something with her in advance in order for them to keep him or you would be exactly right
And also receiving millions in hush money on the way out. It wont be to hard for her.
i know what you mean , i think he is one heck of a coach and will be a great HC one day ; just dont see Saban leaving Al anytime soon
probably will be exactly what will happen in the end
Except against USC
Just kidding HawgFans
